“The Innocence of Conscience”.
Children are the most wonderful creation of God. They win our hearts by their innocent smiles. The class 2 students of CPS won the hearts of the audience with their breathtaking performance during the Special Assembly titled “The innocence of conscience.” The young students entertained their parents with a variety of cultural programmes through which they reminded us of our core values which are often forgotten while we are busy trying to fulfill our desires. They voiced their happiness through English, Tamil and Hindi songs. The children’s performance in the Tamil Skit proved their eloquence in their mother tongue. The yoga postures which they displayed on the stage received a standing ovation from the audience. The message through their English skit, “An Innocent conscience fears nothing” was really thought provoking. The entire show was compered and conducted in a very efficient manner by the children proving that it is not what you do for your children that matters but what you have taught them to do themselves.
Spreading awareness on the ill effects of gadgets on children, we at CPS had a week long learning session along with fun activities based on the topic Go Away Gadgets.
Children were engaged every day in new activities, wherein they were taught how to make use of things around them and create different games such as flying a paper plane, four cups, paper ball race, good & bad habits game etc. Hope this will inspire them to shift their focus away from gadgets and play with their family and friends which in turn will give them immense happiness and contentment. They also carried home a paper rocket and dice to remind them to keep playing without gadgets.
The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more.
