Children’s Day, 2021
Children’s Day is celebrated on 14th November in India to commemorate the birthday of the nation’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. At NPSI, we celebrated Children’s Day on 13th November. Virtual celebrations took place class wise giving sufficient time and space for children to enjoy, speak freely and express themselves.
We started with our Principal, Ms Sudha Balan’s lovely wishes. She helped us remember how much our first prime minster loved children and always wanted to see smile on their faces.
Fun skits, quizzes and games were conducted in each class which saw the children participate with much enthusiasm.
The language teachers came together to present ‘Musical Hungama’, an enjoyable spoof on reality music shows. The art and music faculty presented a collaboration of sketching and percussion which kept the students guessing till the very end.
In grades 1 and 2, teaches presented a musical skit and a fun dress up quiz. For grades 3 to 5, a hilarious skit titlesd, ‘Modern Darbar’ saw Maharaja Krishna Devaraya come back alive and rule modern day Chennai. The children were delighted when their teachers sang for them popular numbers – “Mustafa Mustafa, Do murgi meri and Khol de par”.
Middle school students had a laughing riot with a skit that had students guessing their teachers’ voices. Senior school students were taken through the journey of online learning as teachers became students and presented a hilarious parody. Individual wishes from the teachers were played as students guessed the teacher behind the voice.
With warm wishes and big smiles, teachers arranged for a fun-filled celebration that will remain memorable for all.
