2017 is a landmark year for Seth M.R Jaipuria School, Gomti Nagar as it completes 25 glorious years of providing holistic education to the children of Lucknow. To revel in this momentous occasion a ‘Kindergarten Fiesta’ was organized on the 9th and 10th of November 2017.
The Vice Chairperson Mrs. Anjali Jaipuria, Principal Mrs. Promini Chopra, Head Academics and Innovations Mrs. AshaChadha along with the parents and grandparents attended the spectacular show. The parent teacher collaboration is the heart of Jaipurian philosophy. Mrs. Jaipuria shared with the parents the ideals of Jaipuria Pedagogy so as to bridge the gap between the school and the parents. Jaipuria believes that education is: –
….not separating playing and learning
….not to stuff the child with numbers and letters
….the development of senses
….not teaching through punishment and reward
….living the thought vasudhaivakutumbakam
…..understanding the self-physical, vital, mental, and higher
……as organic as growing a plant
Mrs. Promini Chopra stressed on the essentiality of bringing up sensitive and compassionate children.
The audience was spellbound by the level of confidence and the excellence in the variety of performances the children presented on stage. From the hosting of the show to recitations, singing, dancing and acting under the able guidance of the teachers, each performance won the hearts and appreciation of all. Be it Sanskrit, English, Hindi- a play inspired from KBC, patriotic songs, semi-classical dancesand the performances by some parents along with their children had everybody glued to their seats followed by thunderous applause.
