Ganesh Chaturthi and Onam Celebrations WIS Primary Section Pawan Baug

At Witty International School, Pawan Baug we’re always waiting for festive occasions to celebrate with our students. In a multicultural and cosmopolitan society, festivals provide the perfect opportunity for them to understand and develop respect for other cultures and religions and the past two weeks have been very generous, giving us two back to back festivals- Ganesh Chaturthi and Onam for our Wittians to revel in.
Wittians of Grades I – V celebrated these festivals amidst great cheer and the cultural extravaganza with a series of art activities a couple of days earlier, where they made Laddoos from clay dough,  coloured and decorated the garlands, etc that symbolized the spirit of this vibrant and joyous occasion. Students spent a great deal of time choosing different coloured petals to beautify their flowers and began making a “Pookalam” or a “Flower Rangoli” in the community areas on Friday,1st September’17. This contribution gave the Wittians an opportunity to display their creativity, familiarizing them with different forms, sizes and colours.
While the teachers and students were engrossed in a symbolic activity of Ganesh Chaturthi and Onam, a few other students along with the teachers took an opportunity to explain that Onam is known as the “Flower Harvest Festival” and described how both the festivals are celebrated throughout India. The result was a beautiful creation achieved by the contributions of all the students. Watching the students, one could see them honing skills that would serve them well in any endeavour.
