“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” – Stephen King
Reading gives incomparable pleasure to the readers. While there is no doubt about the fact that reading is a priceless activity, it has been observed that the habit of reading has declined of late. In an endeavour to kindle the love for reading in the students’ hearts, Tagore International School, East of Kailash celebrated the Book Week from Monday, 6 May, 2019 to Saturday, 11 May, 2019 in the school premises.
A plethora of activities, events, competitions and workshops took place in the school during the week, where the students got exciting chances to explore the fun of reading and introduce their own creativity. The following events were organized for the Junior school students -
The Middle and Senior school students participated in the activities such as Poem Recitation, Book-Review Writing, Comic Strip Designing, Cue Card Making and Enactment of the famous stories written by language maestros like Premchand, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens and Rabindranath Tagore etc..
The Book Fair organized by Scholastic India Pvt. Ltd added fervour to the festivity and offered an array of catchy books to the students and visitors. The book stall, put up by the school librarians, invited the students to exchange their old story books with the story books of their friends and turned out to be a great hit among the students. This initiative, titled ‘Bring One Take One’ not only gave the young readers a chance to enjoy reading different types of books, but also ignited the feeling of sharing among them.
The costumed character, Clifford, the Big Red Dog remained the main attraction for the tiny tots throughout the week . The students showed overwhelming response to its presence. They played around and got clicked with this famous character. The fun and frolic filled the school premises with vibrancy and pleasant laughter and giggles. To sum up, it can be asserted that the Book Week was a successful school event. Kudos to everyone who put the event together!
