Whenever we hear or think about the word festival automatically a smile comes on our face. A festival is an occasion of enjoyment and celebration which promotes a child’s social interaction and harmony.
“Celebrations, in the case are an authentic means to recognize a child’s effort or accomplishment rather than focusing on reward systems.
Kids will remember an important day or festival only if they are told about what the occasion signifies. So a celebration makes them to aware of the things in a more feel and happy way. For a child celebrating events and festivals in school has become an integral part of growing, learning new activities, and building a strong cultural belief.
Here at GRT, we have always prioritized all the festivals and celebrations to happen in a very grand manner and have always taken efforts to inculcate in students the appreciation and respect of all festivals and celebrations which indulges the students to develop the respect for our tradition, moral values to understand our country’s rich heritage and diversity.
Professional Development Programs pave the way to create a panel of teachers who are well aware of the latest technological developments and pedagogy. Proper training allows the teachers to become efficient and helps to refine their careers as well.
The year 2022 – 2023, has been the most special, joyous, fun-filled and colourful year. Especially for our KG children who had created their own kingdom in GRT and has enlightened us through their uncommendable performance on various occasions.
