Bastille Day celebration by Grade IV to Grade VI at Witty Kids Chikoowadi (2019-20)

Quand on veut,on peut.

 “Where there is a will, there is a way”

The French National Day commonly known as the ‘Bastille Day’ signifies the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789. It is a day to celebrate and remember the beginning of the French Revolution, following the storming of the Bastille in Paris, which was a fortress and prison representing French Royalty in 1789. 
Witty International School encourages and promotes students to be ‘Global Citizens’. With this ideology La fête nationale was celebrated at school. Students of Grade V and VI participated in the event.

Many thanks to Mr. Frédéric Simon (Director of Alliance Française de Bombay) for gracing the occasion. The programme started with a welcome dance, a fusion of French music and Bharatnatyam. A short skit performed by the students depicting the pain of ordinary people and the gruesome beheading of the Monarch helped students understand that the revolution paved way to a state of Freedom, Equality and Brotherhood.
Wittians melodiously sang the glory and grandeur, of the most famous avenue in the world through the French song Champs – Élysées

 Mr. Frédéric Simon enlighted the Wittians with his speech motivating them to learn the language in a fun way. No better way it could be than conducting a workshop for the students on mask making, puppetry and French theatrical techniques. This day was an opportunity to motivate students to practice French speaking and art skills.

An amazing end to the mesmerizing programme was the breath-taking Grand Finale performance.
It was indeed a fruitful day where students were exposed to the importance of celebrating the Bastille Day!
