Celebration of School Fete at SelaQui International School
A school carnival or a fete as it was twenty years ago is quite different from what it is today. The present system of education has witnessed a gradual acceptance of co-curricular activities as a part of the main curriculum and therefore the expression ‘extra¬curricular’ activities is looked upon as a kind of blasphemy in the context of modern schools. If we look at the advertisements of most evolving international schools, the reference to ‘co-curricular activities’ (not ‘extra’) as a part of the learning experience is given supreme priority to attract customers, err… parents.
Our school being no exception to the same organized a school fete with the help of an active participation of teachers & students on the 19th Dec’13.So, the students set up colorful stalls with different kinds of games to attract the children and as they started arriving in groups led by school authorities, the joy and gratitude on the faces of these children started overpowering us emotionally. The joy on the face of a child as he was lifted by our teacher to shoot at the balloons was priceless.
The kids started having a ball at the various stalls, be it trying to light ten candles with the same matchstick or bowling all the stumps with one ball. They tremendously enjoyed the program that the school music and drama teams put up to entertain them. The food stalls which catered to their needs added to the charm of the event.
A fete would be no occasion for fun with friends unless it has this sense of purpose in itself, love and joy for the neighbor who craves for the bliss that we take for granted!
