‘Folk’ literally means people and ‘tales’ means stories. Folk tales were the means of entertainment in ancient India and were mostly based on Mythology. Mythology though is fictitious but closely relates religion with customs, culture and social practices followed by the society. An inter-house competition Folk Tales was conducted on Wednesday, 30th August 2017 for classes I and II. Children of different houses gave their presentation of Folk-tales behind festivals like Raksha-Bandhan, Lohri, Eid and Dusshehra. Children learnt the motive behind the celebration of every festival and enjoyed every presentation thus fulfilling the purpose of the Inter-House Activity.
Who doesn’t enjoy a puppet show? Puppetry is a form of performance where the skill of a puppeteer makes the lifeless puppets alive. An Inter house activity Peppy Puppets was held on 30th August 2017, where the budding puppeteers of class III to V of all the four houses competed on the theme of the Panchatantra tales. The moral values of Panchatantra were taught to the young kids through this entertaining medium. The activity was graced by the presence of the Principal cum Director Ms. Manju Rana, Vice Principal Ms. Sarojini Sinha and Head Mistress Ms. Indu Kohli. The activity was very well enjoyed by all.
