CATCH FOR THE DAY CELEBRATION (PRE-PRIMARY)
Saturday 11th May saw one of the most exciting activities we have ever had with the Pre-Primary. We at Jaipuria believe in experiential learning as well as in parental engagement. An innovative activity “Catch for the day” was organized to create some fun and excitement for both the kids and mothers. Summer season means happy times and holidays to different locations. We chose to give the kids a taste of coastal India. “Fisherman and Fisherwoman of different coastal areas” was the theme. The day started with the mothers and pre-primary children being welcomed by their class teachers. They were then formally welcomed by the Headmistress Mrs.Monika and Principal Mrs.PoonamKochitty. The children looked adorable in their creative costumes. A Garland Making Competition was held in which mothers with their little ones had to make a garland with Marigold flowers, Ashoka leaves & Daisy flowers within a time limit. Next activity was “Catching the fish” using magnetic fishing rods. Coconut water, Bhelpuri and ice-cream stalls were also set up to re-create the beach side. The children got tattoos of coastal animals painted on their hands along with their mothers. The mothers danced with their little ones to the tunes of Maharashtrian and other Folk music and walked the ramp.
Finally they posed for selfies at the selfie corner comprising of the ocean, a boat and fishing nets as props to enhance the effect. The children learnt about coastal regions and fishing as an occupation, the dress that fishermen and women wear. The participating mothers also had a blast. They expressed their delight and gratitude to the school for giving them such a joyful fun-filled morning with the kids.
