‘The Greatness of a Culture can be found in its Festivals.’ Keeping the warm spirit of the festivals of Makar Sankranti, Lohri and Pongal, Witty International School, Pawan Baug observed 13th January, 2017 with great gusto through Sanskriti - A Cultural Fest, converging the three festivals together.
To add blooming bud to the bouquet, the students participated in all the activities like Kite Decoration, Pot Decoration, Floral Rangoli, etc with full zeal and fervour. It was a wonderful opportunity for the students to showcase their creativity in the form of beautiful vibrant things and later using the same to decorate the school. The decoration was entirely student's show with very less teacher's guidance.
The atmosphere of the school was not short of a carnival. Festivities were in the air! Wittians of Grades I – V went across all the three Community Areas each representing harvest festival in its own ethnicity. Students were briefed about the festival at all three destinations by our apprentices attaining the belief of our school. Witty International School believes that it is important for children to understand their heritage and the cultural significance of festivals incorporating food and traditional dress, discussions about their historical roots and how they bring communities together, and helping children better understand diversity within their own culture.
