Book Week Celebration  from 04-08 May 2020
 

“There are many little ways to enlarge your world. Love of books is the best of all.”

Every year we organise a ’Book Week’ to enhance the literary skills of our students and inculcate good reading habits in them. This year the school celebrated a virtual Book Week from 4th May to 8th May 2020. The aim was to encourage students to become avid readers. Various interesting activities, related to books and reading were organised throughout the week. The students discovered their ’innate powers’, expressed their appreciation for the plant world through a fun worksheet, presented a ‘Show and Tell’, wrote stories in their own words and made comic strips on the books prescribed for them. Puppet show links were also shared with the students and an interesting online storytelling session was organized with famous writer and educationist Ms Sangita Kanjilal. The Book Week was a thumping success with students participating wholeheartedly in all the activities organized for them.

"Story telling session by Ms.Sangita Kanjilal on 08 May 2020" 
 

'We would be nothing without our stories'

It was a beautiful ending to the successful book week event which was held from 4th May to 8th May. On 8th May, a story telling session was held by Ms Sangita Kanjilal. The Google meet invite was sent to every child. Clear guidelines were given about online etiquettes and the students were allowed to comment in the chat box during the session.

Ms Sangita commenced the session with a Story from Bengal, to everybody’s surprise...kids who did not know the customs and culture of Bengal could understand the story, showing successfully that a good story is not bound by regions. 

The second story was an African folktale, which engrossed and engaged the children, introducing them to a far away land. In the end Ms Sangita took up questions of the students. Telling them about morals, journey of a writer, how a book is published, some anecdotes while writing a specific story etc. Overall the session was extremely interesting and fruitful. A great way to end the Book Week.
