The school is bustling with oodles of festive spirit as the children celebrated ‘Navratra’ and
‘Dussera’ two weeks ago and are all geared up for Diwali in the coming week. These festivals
mark one of the important celebrations on the Hindu festive calendar. The school observed
holidays from 28 Sep-1st October. The children usually go out to visit various pandals all over
the city and attend Navratri or Dussehra or Diwali Melas (fairs). At this time the entire city is
draped in various lights and the ambience and the vibe is very lively and enthusiastic. At school, children made Diyas (lamp) for Diwali. They decorated the classrooms and also took few home to decorate on the day of Diwali.
Keeping the festive spirits aside, the half-yearly examinations started from 7th of October.
For small children, the exams concluded on the 12th of October whereas for older kids the
exams concluded on the 17th of October. The children are writing the papers now for which they had started preparations a few weeks ago. At Naveen School, we do our best to not make examinations strenuous for the children and develop healthy competition amongst them. There are many revision classes which take place before the exams so that the students are well prepared for the course.
Break for Diwali is commencing from 18th October to 21st October.
We are extremely sorry for not sending a half-yearly report as promised but will be
sending out one in the coming months. We hope that through our blog you are getting updated with the happenings in Naveen School.
We wish you a very Happy Diwali from our end! Will share Diwali updates in our next post.
Keep reading and smiling
