Christmas Celebration

20131221_102714

The Palace School celebrated Christmas in a colourful, joyful and lively way with the students warming up to the festive spirit even in the chilling cold !!

The melodious carols, beautifully presented dances, the enactment of the miracle of Lord Jesus’s birth all added up to one amazing cultural event. The students and teachers worked equally hard to put up the event that portrayed the enthusiasm and spirit of the festive spirit in each one of them.

The youngest of the lot, Level I and Level II kids, sang Christmas carols like ‘Rudolph the red nose Reindeer’ and ‘Jingle Bells’ in the most endearing manner. The Class I students spoke with aplomb about the relevance of  colours associated with Christmas and the Class II students enacted out the significance of decorating the Christmas tree every year.

Grandparents Day Level I

grandparents-day

Grandparents are very special to every child. They are the stalwarts of our families.Their knowledge is invaluable and their love unconditional.

To make such special people feel extra special The Palace School celebrated Grandparents Day for Level I. The grandparents were extended a warm welcome and a gamut of cultural programs was presented in front of them. The kids were excited to exhibit their skills and talent in front of their grandparents and the grandparents were so happy and proud to see their children perform so well.

The grandparents enjoyed songs, dances, karate presentation, poems and also loved receiving the gifts which the children had so lovingly made for them. 

Each one is so occupied in their busy routine that we tend to take our loved ones for granted. This coming together of grandparents and their kids was a memorable time for each one of them and they truly enjoyed every second of it.

Scouts’ Trip to Mt Abu

The Palace School Scouts group went for a week long adventure trip to Mount Abu under the guidance of Scouts Master Ms. Karuna S Trivedi .The mission of the trip was to imbibe the qualities of independence and make our children more self dependent and perfect role models for the society. They learnt how to survive and adapt in the toughest of situations with just basic needs and facilities available.IMG_20131024_081555

As part of their cultural development and to make them understand their duties towards the society the scouts participated in cleanliness drive and ‘Say No to polythene’ campaign at Arbuda Devi Temple.

The scouts were also given commando training and undertook daily trekking of about 8 kms. They visited Brahmakumari ji’s Ashrams where they got in touch with the philosophical side of life.

It was a memorable experience for most of the students as it was their first time away from home and parents. They learnt to make new friends, adjust in the new environment and still have a lovely time.

It was truly ‘Learning while having Fun’.
