Montessori Annual Day 2019-2020
The Montessori Annual Day, the most anticipated event of the year, was held on 30 November 2019 at the school auditorium. The theme of this year’s show was ‘Wit and Wisdom’. The aim of the event was to give the little ones a glimpse of Indian folklore and fables of yore. Tales of the wise and witty Birbal and Tenali Raman were depicted alongside an Aesop’s animal fable on friendship, as short plays.
A special feature this year was the concept of Voice-overs; which was well received by the audience. Children as little as 5 and 6 years of age lent their voices to their friends. These children said their lines to perfection without the aid of a script, to not just one but three stories back-to-back; which in itself was truly astounding. Our Principal’s speech about the importance of storytelling for a child’s growth rendered a valuable take-home message to the parents.
It was indeed a day of joy and learning.
