To inculcate the good values of love and kindness, it is important for the children to start caring for every human being around them at home and in the outside world. Keeping in mind the present pandemic situation, various appropriate activities were organised for the students of the Primary Wing, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, which they could easily enjoy at the comfort and safety of their homes. It was a pleasure to witness their interest and involvement in all the activities as they were very excited to learn the good qualities like moral values and kindness etc.

Class I- Clean city, Dream city
Children have their own way of expression. They have a vision of their own. To enable them to understand how important it is to have a clean surrounding, they were involved in an interesting activity to draw posters showing their idea of ‘Clean India.’ Children portrayed their vision on the paper by drawing beautiful posters.
Class II- Stay Fit
A healthy body leads to a healthy mind. The art of practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual's mind, body and soul. It brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve a peaceful body and mind. It helps manage stress and anxiety and keeps us relaxing. Yoga asanas build strength, flexibility and confidence. Keeping all this in mind a yoga activity was organised for the children to stay fit and healthy, specially in these times of pandemic.

It is important to learn by doing. To understand the importance of cleanliness children were made to take up the initiative to keep their surroundings clean.

To inculcate the good values of love and kindness for birds, animals and plants, it is important for the children to start caring for them at home. They also kept water pots and food for animals and birds.
