Teachers' Day
On the 5th of September Teachers' Day was celebrated in the true Mongrace spirit. Through a song students gave a tribute to their teachers. In the traditional Mongrace style teachers put up a wonderful programme comprising of songs, dances and a wonderful skit. On a newly prepared display board "thank you" message was displayed by creating a garden composition with handprints of children portrayed as flowers. Inspiring quotes and messages were delivered to the teachers through a power point presentation. A guessing game was also played through the Power point slides where teachers were made to guess the name of the teacher when only a part of the face,( like nose or eyes) was shown to them.
Pure Magic at Mongrace Montessori House
To commemorate the National Education Day and as a prelude to Children's Day, on 11th of November 2011, all students at Mongrace Montessori House took part in a drawing and handwriting competition organized by the National Students' Council. It was a pleasure seeing tiny minds set their imagination free and colour to their hearts' content.

Celebration of Children's Day at Mongrace Montessori House this year was done through the creation of a Children's haven. A magic spell was woven by the little Mongrace Magicians. The Transitional Class "Big Kids" performed the magic show for the younger ones. It became truly magical when the young entertainers performed thrilling and mind boggling tricks right under our eyes. There were gasps of wonder when the wide eyed audience was dazzled by disappearing objects and the changing of flower colours.

More happy and enjoyable memories were created when the puppet show based on Nursery Rhymes began. Children and adults alike were fascinated and enchanted by the magic of puppetry. Children loved to see the Nursery Rhymes Characters dancing and interacting with each other. They loved listening to the rhymes and tried to join in. It was a wonderful show of live action where children were captivated by the mix of sight and sound. As the rhythm built up the little audience could not stop themselves from singing and dancing. Singing along with the nursery rhymes was a great way of learning word association. Kudos dear teachers to your great creative ideas!
