JANAMASHTAMI CELEBRATIONS- JUNIOR SCHOOL
'Maintaining one's culture, values and traditions is beyond price' ~ Getano Lui Jnr
Children learning about their cultural heritage helps them understand their uniqueness in society. The best way to teach about our heritage is by celebrating the customs and traditions that have been passed on through generations. To celebrate this festival of joy, fun and naughtiness of childhood, the children of TAFS Junior Wing did festival craft activities for Janamashtami, from 06-09 August 2020.
The students of UKG adorned the headgear with peacock feather made of paper and decorations and stole our heart with their mischievous smiles. Class I children made paper flute using newspaper roll, coloured paper, decorations and reminded us of Venugopal Rupa of Shri Krishna his lyrical and rhythmic self .The students of class II engaged in a 'Matka decoration activity'. In an artistic manner they learned about Shri Krishna, his antiques as a young boy where he would steal butter kept in the earthen pots with the help of his friends. As they decorated the matkas using mirrors , glitter, cotton and stars they learned about the story of Krishna Janmashtami and the triumph of good over evil.The students then clicked a photo with their art work and shared it with their class teachers
