As part of the ongoing Student Exchange Programme with The Choice School, Kochi, online assemblies were organized in the months of August and October. The event saw a beautiful conglomeration of music and dance from different cultures.
Presentations by our partner school from Kochi revolved around Onam, a harvest festival celebrated in Kerala. Students shared the story behind the festival, and enthralled everyone with captivating musical performances and a fashion show. The special assembly put up by our School focused on Janmashtami, a festival that marks the birth of ‘Lord Krishna’. The beautiful presentation gave students an insight into the stories around the birth of Lord Krishna. To complement that display of exemplary storytelling, the students presented a dance to the tune of Achyutam Keshavam Krishn Damodaram. It was followed by the recipe of ‘Makhana Burfi’ shared by our young chef- Saikrit Singh, a student of class V. The students of both the schools got an opportunity to interact with each other and ask questions about their festivals, culture and ideologies.
Mr.Ajith Jacob, Principal, The Choice School, in his address, mentioned how the long association between the two schools has been a great learning experience for both students and teachers. Ms. Priyanka Barara, Principal, Salwan Public School,in her address, stated that these interactions pave way for the young generation to connect with each other and thus accentuate building a progressive world and community. The event ended with the Vote of Thanks by Ms. Jyotsna Grover, Vice Principal, Salwan Public School.
