School Notes

Library week

The importance of developing library search techniques by the students was emphasised during a National Library Week celebration held at the Kendriya Vidyalaya, Pattom, in Thiruvananthapuram recently.

The occasion was marked by various programmes organised by the school library and the Readers’ Club. M. Lalitha, librarian, State Council for Educational Research and Training, inaugurated the programme.

Noted Hindi poet and Kendra Sahitya Akademi award winner Dr. Rati Saxena interacted with the students in a ‘Meet the Author’ session. The poet explained to the students the various nuances of creative writing and publishing.

A book fair in collaboration with DC Books provided students with an opportunity to see and purchase some of their favourite books. Competitions in reading, book review and spot poetry were also held.

Vimala Menon, noted children’s writer and activist, was the chief guest at the valedictory function.

The function was also attended by Cicy Roy Mathew, Principal.

Christmas fete

A Christmas fete was held at the Christ Nagar English Higher Secondary School, Kowdiar last week. Vincent Samuel, Bishop of the Neyyattinkara diocese, inaugurated the event and delivered the Christmas message.

The celebration began with a song by the school choir, followed by Nativity scenes. Fr. Sebastian Chamathara delivered the presidential address. Fr. Paul Mangad, Principal of the school, was also present. The celebrations drew to a close with the arrival of Santa Claus.
