Entertainment, relaxation & family-time found a new address on Saturday,16th of March, 2019 at Vivero International Preschool and Childcare, Sarjapur. The event was a special arrangement for our little ones as they watched "Finding Nemo" along with their parents in a cosy set up. It was indeed a 'movie experience' like no other in front of a giant LED along with its Dolby surround sound system that brought about a genuine feel of the movie theatre, while vibrant awe-inspiring colours from the screen lit up the area. The warm, buttery smell of popcorn further added on to the exciting ambience.
The entire school was decorated with bits and pieces of the theme from the movie. The highlight, of course, was the magical underwater world entrance as every guest marvelled with sheer amazement. Every decoration on display proudly showcased the ingenuity and joy of the children's work. A hi-tech ticket counter with its curious paperless QR code scanner saw some unforgettably priceless expressions from children and parents alike. Apart from this, theme-based activities and gaming stations drew a lot of attention and kept everyone happily engaged before and after the main screening. Children not only succeeded in 'Finding Nemo' at the end but also created wonderful memories as they watched their parents relive their childhood through the event.
Annual Day is something each one of us including children, parents and teachers look forward to. Planning for the event begins much in advance to ensure superb performances by each and every child. The thought behind the Annual Day celebrations is to provide a wonderful platform for children to showcase their performances with confidence to a large audience. The Art Exhibition gives the parents an insight into the effort put in by the teachers to make learning fun for the children.
Planning for the event began in November 2016, with much enthusiasm. After several discussions we narrowed down on the theme based on the five elements of nature. A brief plan was laid out to include skits performed by K1 and K2 children, and dance performances by our Pre-nursery, Nursery, Childcare and EPS children. We eagerly started preparing for the event.Shortlisting the songs, script writing for the skits, planning the props, etc. was undertaken with lot of passion. Soon regular practice sessions for the big day were being conducted in all classes.
Staying true to our philosophy of ‘Partnering with Parents’, like the previous year, this year too we decided to include a performance by our K2 parents. On PTM day in January 2017,we discussed the plan with the K2 parents. They were thrilled at the idea and soon began designing the skit with some help from K2 teachers and their children.
We chose the auditorium at New Horizon Engineering College as the venue for the big day and soon the day arrived. Children dressed in their colourful attire reached school all eagerto showcase their performance on stage. At the venue, parents walked through the Art Exhibition with some yummy snacks, as they enthusiastically waited for the program to begin.
Our vivacious anchor for the evening, Ms. Ameeta Pandya, welcomed the guests and the much awaited event began. We started the affair with a speech by our Guest of Honour Ms. Bina Bakshi and the School Head’s report. The performances by children opened with the Welcome song by our K1 children followed by dances by our Childcare toddler group and Pre-nursery groups.
To ensure that most guests are present during the felicitation ceremony of our graduating K2 children, we conducted this immediately after the Pre-nursery performances. Our K2 children were thrilled to receive their graduation certificated from Ms. Bina Bakshi.
As the evening progressed children excitedly put forth their performances, dances by the Nursery children and some amazing skits along with dances were performed by the K1 and K2 children. This year also the K2 skit was written by the children.
The highlight of the evening was the wonderful 10 minute skit by our passionate K2 parents, setting very high standards for the next few years. The hard work and hours & days of dedicated practice put in by the parents was evident from the performance. The script involved lot of inputs from their children, including the dance steps.
The program ended on a high note with a song by our graduating K2 children. It was a fun-filled event with some fantastic performances by children and parents alike.
When witches go riding And the black cats are seen, The moon laughs and whispers 'Tis near Halloween". We celebrated Halloween in school. The children were asked to dress up for the party. Parents also took the efforts to dress up according to the theme. It was a great event enjoyed by all.
Friday the 13th, saw a lot of action at Vivero International, Sarjapur with fathers and children having a gala time at the Back to School event. The one minute games like Human unicorn, Shooters, House of cards and Feed the monkey were a big hit and the fathers participated in them wholeheartedly. The children were reluctant to leave the merry-go-round and bouncy castle, while the clay modeling kept everyone engrossed.
The animal carnival organized by Vivero Sarjapur was a roaring success among children across all age groups. Parents were not left behind as they enjoyed the diverse activities at the carnival. Several attractions like a magic show, tattoo stalls, the science corner, the potters wheel and the delectable snacks kept everyone glued and wanting more. Beautiful recycled items created by the teachers, were displayed for sale, the proceeds of which went to a local NGO that works for under privileged children. Different stalls set up by Ocradle and Merry Go Learn were also a big hit among the audience. The prime objective of the carnival was to help children learn sensitivity towards animals. The rabbits, hamsters, pigeons and the Persian cat were the focal point of everyones attention and children were seen petting and feeding the animals. The chariot ride was among the key attractions with the children enjoying every bit of it. There were also the monkeys to feed and elephants to pin tails on among other interesting games. The jungle theme photo booth attracted people by hordes.
