Basant Panchmi is an occasion which marks the onset of the ‘Spring Season’. It is also celebrated to worship Goddess Saraswati, the symbol of knowledge and wisdom.
To mark the occasion, the children came dressed in yellow clothes, offered yellow coloured flowers to the Goddess and also brought yellow coloured snacks to share with each other.
Beautiful pieces of Art related to Basant Panchmi were decorated on the boards. The creativity of children was reflected in the displays. A floral rangoli with yellow and orange coloured flowers signified the brilliance of nature and the vibrancy of life.
A special assembly was held on this day. It started with the children and teachers singing the ‘Saraswati Vandana’. This was followed by a presentation on the various aspects of the festival. Children carried their books with them to attain the blessings of ‘Maa Saraswati’. They also learnt about the importance of showing respect to books as they are repositories of wisdom and knowledge.
The assembly concluded with an inspirational song which was sung by the staff and students.
