Love thy animals
Bharti Public School, Mayur Vihar, celebrated World Animal Welfare Day recently by hosting activities meant to enrich human love for animals, creating awareness about their protection and for imparting knowledge about their habitat.
First, there was Pet Day where students and staff were allowed to bring their pets to school and discuss their food habits and lifestyle. A veterinary doctor was also present to give a pep talk.
Later on, there was a puppet show where the puppets were endangered animals. A power point presentation about wildlife sanctuaries worldwide was made before the students.
Students of Class VI to VIII also took part in the British Council’s “schools online” project on endangered animals.
Athletics meet held
Vidya Devi Jindal School, Hisar, had wrestling champion Yogeshwar Dutt as their chief guest at their annual athletic meet recently. He exhorted the students to give their 100 per cent to whatever they chose to do.
The attraction of the day was the 4x100 metres relay but there were other events as well. According to the school, “The synchronised movements and coordination among the students during the extravaganza of the opening ceremony clearly illustrated the indefatigable hard work put in by them. The athletics events set the tracks blazing and the spectators applauded the athletes.”
Amity, Saket, celebrated Grandparents’ Day recently by inviting the students’ grandparents to school. The children sang, danced and enacted a play on Krishna Leela.
According to the school, “the grandparents tapped their feet to songs sung by their loved ones and each performance was followed by applause and giggles. Nostalgia took centre stage as grandparents reminisced how fast their young ones had grown up.”
