The morning started with a special Republic Day assembly, where Kindergarteners flawlessly recited Subhash Chand Bose’s classic poem Khooni Hastakshar. A choir, including students from grades I to III, presented the Republic Day staple Vande Mantram, with a twist. The celebrations ended with the school staff and children singing patriotic songs & the national anthem Jan Gan Man.
Later, everyone assembled in The Infinity School's multi-purpose hall to explore their creativity. Teachers encouraged kids to paint their thoughts on freedom. The on-the-spot Dot Day activity was organized for children to imagine & see where their imagination takes them.
Little ones reflected on the different meanings of freedom, imagined & collaborated to paint their ideas on a blank paper. They observed & got inspired by each other's works. Teachers shared the story of little Vashti (how she transformed from a sad and meek child to a confident & mature artist, having the ability to help others believe in themselves), as portrayed in Peter H. Reynold’s world-famous book The Dot.
The story & the art exercise encouraged the participants to follow their passion, explore new skills & develop the self-confidence and courage to pursue their dreams.
Throughout the day, students participated in different in-class art & craft activities based on national festivals in India. Overall, it was an unconventional, intriguing & stimulating learning experience for everyone. Students pondered over the reasons behind celebrating dot day & national festivals. Also, learned an important lesson-'When one focuses on individual milestones, it gets easier to move forward,' which is one of the ideas behind celebrating dot day worldwide.
