Happy Faces of Children lit the Diwali Celebration at GD Goenka Public School Lucknow:-
CHILDREN’S DAY FUN ADDS SPARKLE TO THE CELEBRATION
“May the sparkle of Diwali dispel all the darkness & illuminate every home and heart.”
The Diwali celebrations at school often mean a festive look with diyas and lanterns adorning the class. The activities permeate the school premises with an atmosphere of togetherness and hope. Since Children’s Day is around the corner, the celebrations struck a double whammy.
In the spirit of festivities and celebration, GD Goenka Public School Lucknow organized a vibrant and engaging event to commemorate the Diwali festival and Children’s Day on 10 November 2023. The event aimed to foster a sense of joy and creativity among the children, ensuring a memorable and enjoyable experience for all.
The students of pre-primary classes celebrated the festival of Diwali with great enthusiasm. The day began with the pooja of lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi, children performed Aarti, offered flowers and sweets to God, and enjoyed the Prasad too. The young students proved that creativity and talent do not have boundaries. Our little Goenkans from class toddlers to class II celebrated Diwali on 10 November 2023 on the school campus with great zeal.
The teachers talked about the significance of the festival – how good always conquered evil and also about why and how Diwali is celebrated across India. Besides sensitizing students about the ill effects of crackers, they also shared the guidelines for environment-friendly options for celebrating Diwali. The students from class Toddlers to class II continued the Diwali celebration with the making of several craft items such as diyas, candles, lanterns, Diwali Kalash, wall hangings, rangoli, photo frames, bookmarks, envelopes and flower vases, etc. The children’s day was followed by a series of engaging activities including storytelling sessions and interactive games to foster creativity and teamwork among the students.
Children of a class toddler and pre-nursery played the game ‘jump and fetch’ the candy in their class. The nursery played a game of passing the ball in the skating area. KG played a game of balancing lemon on a spoon in the skating area. Children of class grade I played a game ‘Simon Says’ and Grade II made Nehru’s topi and played a game of balancing a book on their head.
The entire presentation filled the hearts of all students with the spirit of Diwali and they enjoyed the celebrations wholeheartedly.
