Mongrace goes GLOBAL through their Annual Exhibition

The Annual Exhibition and Project Display , which is an eagerly awaited event at Mongrace Montessori House and Day Care Centre  was held in February, 2014. This year the topic chosen was ‘Celebrations of Joy’. The projects undertaken by the students with the help of their teachers included festivals like Diwali, Ramzan, Holi, Christmas, Chinese New Year, Durga Puja, Dassera. The day care children were motivated to explore ‘More Festivals celebrated in India’ and also some ‘Universal Celebrations’ like Mother’s Day, Children’s Day, Earth Day, Peace Day etc. The collective art and craft work undertaken by the children demonstrated application and creativity. Individual colouring activity related to the topic was also on display.   
 
The central board which carried the theme ‘Celebrating Diversity-Global Unity’ had pictures of the culturally diverse celebrations at Mongrace. The essence of the display was to help the children understand that by celebrating festivals of different cultures we are promoting Global Unity.
 
The highlight of the display was the true ‘Global’ spirit which was evident in the section where hand written letters sent by children of Uphall School in UK were displayed. This was part of the British Council ‘s  ‘Connecting Classrooms’ project of which Mongrace Newtown has been a part of. We had sent the students of Up Hall School online cards and a video wishing them for Christmas and they in turn surprised us with the letters of their celebrations as part of their contribution to our project.
 
The excellent presentation was a pointer to the high standards set at  Mongrace Montessori House and Day Care Centre. Kudos to the Mongrace team at Newtown, who have proved time and again that their endeavour to work towards excellence is ceaseless and untiring!!
