Performing arts is a profound and an important part of any child's education, and the skills learned and experience gained enhance students' abilities in many areas of their life. Students of Sr.kg expressed their knowledge about the monsoon season through different forms of performing art namely drama and dance. Students enacted a skit called 'Monsoon Magic' with great conviction and were exceptionally expressive and confident. They displayed the learner profile of being 'Risk-takers' and 'Communicators'. Students put up an entertaining act by singing rhymes & songs related to the Monsoon season and also enlightened the audience about the 'Rain Cycle', 'Monsoon Wear', 'Monsoon Creatures' and familiarized them to terminology pertaining to the Monsoon Season. Through a dance performance students shared the joy that the rain brings to their lives and how they enjoy the monsoon season.
It was an enjoyable experience that permitted students to learn beyond the traditional homeroom setting. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the acts and appreciated the same.
During the course of the theme- 'Where we are in place and time' Sr.kg students inquired into the homes of people to understand how they reflect cultural influences and local conditions.
Students understood the importance of having a home for us humans, as we are social beings. The home not only protects us and gives us shelter but also plays a huge role in shaping who we are. To their surprise, students learnt that a lot of people because of economic and social reasons, struggle to have a home. Thus, as part of taking responsible action, students of Sr.kg decided to organize a fund raiser in the form of a 'Canteen Day'. The sales proceeds were donated to a Women's shelter.
Students of Senior Kindergarten visited Ovelakar wadi - a Butterfly Garden where they got an opportunity to observe how a butterfly changes over the duration of its lifetime. They further got to observe the different stages of a butterfly and different breeds within the same, which helped them understand how learn how each of the life cycles can be different from the other. They also learned about butterfly habitats and other factors influencing their life cycle.
