THE IMPORTANCE OF CELEBRATING FESTIVALS IN SCHOOLSeth Anandram Jaipuria School Ghaziabad
A festival is an occasion of enjoyment and celebration which promotes social interaction and harmony
Children will remember an important day only if they are told what the occasion signifies. So a celebration makes them aware of the world in a more fun way. Celebrating events and festivals in our school has become an integral part of learning and building a strong cultural belief. Such celebrations bring the students closer to each other’s traditions and cultural beliefs and develop respect and understanding for each other’s customs and traditions. Some of the days celebrated in our school are Independence Day, Janmashtami, Mother’s day, Grandparent’s day etc. Other famous festivals of India include Lohri, Raksha Bandhan, Holi, Diwali , etc. With so many festivals to celebrate, Indians surely have millions of reasons to rejoice!Furthermore, when students from different regions experience this joy of festivals, it truly enhances the Indian culture.
So apart from classroom learning, Seth Anandram Jaipuria encourages students to celebrate each and every festival and event with great zeal and enthusiasm. Children are exposed to the essence of festivals in various ways like they tap their feet on peppy songs followed by cheerful rhymes and melodious songs. Each and every performance turns out to be innovative and unique in its own way. At the end of the day the boundless joy of celebrating the event is visible on the faces of all. The Pre-primary wing of our school celebrates most of the events in the presence of their parents and our honourable Principal cum Director Ma’am which illuminates the celebration.
For students, it is a great way to understand the rich heritage of India and learn about the importance of various festivals. Along with enthusiasm and fun for the activities, qualities like sensitivity, creativity and togetherness are also inculcated in the students. Keeping its values intact, our school wishes to offer the right kind of educational system which is based on moral ethics. The school also believes that education will allow the child to bloom, blossom and thrive, giving them the right platform where they will work towards becoming a responsible citizen.
