Mango Day Celebration July 3, 2015
It was a sweet juicy morning for the tiny tots of K.R. Mangalam World School Paschim Vihar, when the students of Pre-school, Pre-primary and class I delightfully entered the school premises in order to celebrate this day. Children had pinned up the mango-shaped badges to honour the cause and were excited to make it memorable for themselves.
The day started with a general conversation about the king of fruits- Mango, followed by rhymes and singing session which the kids enjoyed thoroughly.
Teachers briefed the students about its being the king of fruits, not only for its taste and fleshy yellow colour but also, for the nutrients it offers like- vitamin-C and vitamin-A. This fibrous fruit boosts our digestive system and prevents from getting heat- stroke. They were also told about the various forms of its consumption such as- mango shake, ice cream, jam, pickle, chutney etc.
The little CHEFS enjoyed the kitchenette activity and prepared the mango pudding which they relished after having their meal.
To commemorate this day a ‘Day out’ to Dilli Haat, Janak Puri was planned for them where Delhi Tourism Association with Government of Delhi organized 27th Mango Festival for three consecutive days. Over 500 varieties of mangoes were exhibited like Langra, Chausa, Amrapali, Keser, Ramkela etc. Kids were amazed to see different coloured and various sizes of mango, especially with varieties that are as small as a grape and some that are as large as a papaya. They even saw various stalls including mango-products.
At the end of the day the children left for their home with immense pleasure in their hearts and this event will be cherished in their little minds for a long time.
