Mangaluru, Jul 31: 'A child, more than everything is a spontaneous observer of nature', rightly said Maria Montessori. In a time of haste, where children do not have this pleasure or privilege as in the olden times, Mount Carmel Central School takes time to create a unique space and opportunity for children to get a glimpse of nature's finest, especially the all encompassing sky!
Half-century since humans first landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, the tiny tots of MCCS will begin to open their little minds to such huge possibilities of human excellence and may be, begin dreaming of a time when they can take such big leaps of human progress. Engaging children in the natural world will instill in them an inquisitive eye to appreciate and revere Nature, in all her marvelous glory.
In a one of a kind inauguration, principal Sr Melissa symbolically propelled the rocket to the moon amidst excitement and thunderous applause. The UKG section had a display of rain dance under rainy sky, the night sky with the moon and twinkling stars, the movement of the sun during the day and the different planets and objects visible in the sky.
The LKG section displayed planet earth with rich foliage, enriching it with their action songs; and the tiny kids of nursery with rainbow dance and kites playing in the sky.
The creative tweaking of the kindergarten teachers made the event possible by bringing ‘space’ into their classrooms.
