Children’s Day Celebration-Std. I to IV
-Miss. Sonia Kasare
“Children are the upcoming future creators, and if we need to preserve the future then it is our duty to build the future of our children in the right direction.” These were the words of our first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, famously known as Chacha Nehru. Nehru Ji’s love towards children gave birth to a day we celebrate for all the kids in the world – Children’s day; on 14th November.
Though the pandemic and the lockdown still stay on as a challenge, Don Bosco Primary School Matunga conducted a virtual Children’s Day celebration on 10th November 2020. The celebration began with a prayer thanking God for all the blessings showered upon each of us. A video clip was then viewed by the children where the Principal Rev. Fr. Bernard Fernandes encouraged the students to “Explore, Engage and Serve” and wished them a wonderful children’s day. Warm wishes were spread by the head teacher and all the teachers in the primary section followed by an informative activity prepared by Ms. Mary telling the children all about this special day. A video compiled by Ms. Inbarasi wishing all the children from each class teacher individually was then presented to the students. As no children’s day celebration is complete without games, the class teachers took commendable efforts to play games like, Memory game, Guess the chocolates in the jar, Guess the jingle, Guess the chocolates in the jar, Princess of Don Bosco, Draw the Shapes, Scavenger Hunt, Draw the Shapes and many more. An action song was screened to which the students danced and that ended the children’s day celebration.
Many children shared their feedback regarding the virtual children’s day celebration.
Master Aarav Gupta of 3 A commented, “I miss our school very much. Thanks for making us feel special through this online platform”.
Master Vineet Monterio of I D said, “Children Day celebration was super fun. We felt special with lovely messages shared by our Principal, Head Teacher and all the teachers. It was a great day”.
No matter what the distance our students are always appreciated; seeing the smile on every students face lit up the coming days of Diwali!
