The Colour Day Activity took place for LKG-A/B/C/D on July 21, 2023, organised by their respective Class Teachers, Ms. Candida Marie, Ms. Prasanna, Ms. Shanthi, and Ms. Anjana. The students of LKG-A/B/C/D actively participated in the event. They were instructed to dress up in primary colours (red, blue, and yellow) and bring snacks of the same colour as their outfit. The LKG classrooms were beautifully decorated with balloons, streamers, paper butterflies and flowers to create a lively atmosphere for the children.
The day started with the children gathering at the KG assembly hall. The teachers presented an engaging story about colours and their significance. They also showed real-life examples of fruits, vegetables, and other objects that represent different colours we encounter in our daily lives. Additionally, a demonstration of colour mixing was conducted, showing how primary colours (red, blue, and yellow) combine to create secondary colours (orange, purple, and green). The children were thrilled to witness the formation of new colours through this activity.
To enhance the learning experience and keep the children entertained, colourful songs and videos were played for them. Afterwards, in the classroom, various activities were conducted such as colouring, colour sorting games and creating models using clay to showcase their creativity. Each child received a colouring sheet and a stick smiley to take home as mementos of the day.
The Colour Day was a resounding success and left beautiful memories for both the children and teachers. Such events play a crucial role in a child's holistic development by contributing to their overall growth and fostering experiential learning, leading to their happiness and enrichment.

“The world is a school. The more we travel, the more we learn.”
The much awaited day for students of Class VII came to pass. They were out on field trip to Fort St. George on 20th of July. It was a splendid opportunity to visit the marvellous landmark of Chennai, Fort St. George. It was an amazing experience where it fit in like a puzzle piece, because it was just the thing they needed. The fort museum displays many artefacts, weaponry, coins, letters and documents dating back to the British era. The display of coins used during the period of Tippu Sultan, the Portuguese, Dutch, Mughals and the British were interesting. The first floor was filled with oil paintings of the Nawabs, British Viceroys and the queens of England. We saw lots of oil painting about the people who lived in fort St. George. The paintings were lustrous and beautiful. The royal clothes used by the British during their stay in the fort are displayed. Tall and impeccable statues of the viceroys were something that couldn’t be missed. We were taken aback to see the armoury, such as the sharp swords, pistols and guns too. In the same room, the most interesting thing was the super-secret underground chamber.
The students were taken to St. Mary’s Church, built within the fort campus. It is said to be one of the oldest church built by the British in Asia. The church has witnessed many Royal weddings and other ceremonies. Great stories about the construction of the church, the main altar, the tower, the tomb slabs, the fence and the baptism tub were narrated by the guide. This triggered the curiosity to know more. Over all it was an awesome experience.
