A special assembly was conducted by the students of class nursery, prep and class I that was very well anchored by Ms. Shafa and Ms. Trina, class teachers of class I B and I C respectively. Children presented a small skit on travelling where they encountered an emergency while boating. HPE teacher Mr. Dharamvir demonstrated the first aid required for that emergency. Nursery children performed a peppy song…”let’s go on a journey.”Understanding of basic road safety was explained by another sports teacher Mr. Smith Keshav who was also dressed as traffic policeman. Towards the end children were addressed by the guest who shared his experiences with them and also told them about the difference between ships and boats. The day was filled with a variety of fascinating fun filled exercises which engaged the children both indoors and outdoors activities. Right from the circle time and craft fun, coloring and drama each of these was fascinating and enthralling for the little ones.
