Secondary Section Celebrating International Joke Day (2015 - 16) WIS, Malad.


In this world of turmoil and strife, everybody needs a good laugh now and then. On this note International Joke Day is celebrated each year on the 1st of July. The aim of this day is to spread joy and cheer through jokes and funny activities. The need for such a day arose because the world is a lot worried now than it was ever before. Stress, hypertension and lack of physical activity have made us dull and lethargic. Our preoccupation with a series of tasks have left no room for fun and frolic which is the essence of life. This day serves as an impetus to increase socialisation in this isolated world.

People across the globe share funny jokes, funny e-mails, SMS’s, cards, videos, indulge in light-hearted pranks or any activity which helps to spread cheer around.

As it is rightly said ‘Laughter is the best medicine’, pupils at Witty International School were asked to procure vocabulary related to jokes and laughter and a discussion on the same was conducted in class. A Hasya Kavi Sammelan was also conducted whereby pupils mutually exchanged humorous poems. A few students engaged themselves in placard making which was displayed on the boards. Some pupils went out of their way to surf the internet and retrieve information on the importance of this day.

From a student’s perspective, the children of today feel stressed in the academic domain. They are often confronted with peer competition and fulfilment of parental expectations to meet their aspirations. This day very specifically provides an outlet for them for self expression and helps them to get de-stressed.

To conclude, the pupils enjoyed the day to their hearts’ content for it served to unwind with academics for a brief span of time. They laughed wholeheartedly and spread an aura of fun and merriment all around. The smiling faces of the children will always be a precious asset for the institution.
