A cool time for kids

DOING THINGS together makes all the difference. That is what 'The Activity', an organisation working with schools, tries to achieve through its interactive programmes and cultural events, which provide school children ample opportunities to display their talents. Committed to the all-round personality development of students, the organisation works with schools country-wide and has branches in Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune.

The focus is on activities beyond the curriculum and all-round personality development by providing the right environment. And this is made possible through training progammes in life skills for students, teacher empowerment workshops and most important, an annual inter-school library and cultural festival.

'ACTIVITY 2001', a literary and cultural fete, to be held on July 12 and 13 at Kamaraj Arangam, in the city, will feature 40 different literary, musical, dance, speaking, creative and art competitions for students from Standards I to XII.

Students can participate in a host of activities which are categorised thus - 'Talent Activity' which includes a fashion show, and selection of Mr./Ms. Activity; 'Dance Activity' featuring Indian group dance; 'Singing Activity' comprising Western music, Indian film hits and Antakshari; 'Speaking Activity' which spots the debating, and oratorical skills of students; 'Literary Activity' consisting of quiz, dumb charades, writing poems and news reporting; 'Art and Design Activity' where students can participate in painting, cartooning, sketching, clay modelling, craft, pot painting, making greeting cards, flower arrangement, vegetable carving, jewellery and mehendi design and collage and poster design.

There are quite a few fun activities too such as face painting, hairstyling, tattooing, bindi and nail polish design, garment and trophy design and cookery and photography.

With certificates for all participants and trophies for the winning entries in every category, students can really look forward to a 'kool skool fest.'
