नई उमंग लेकर नदियां भी बहती जाए,
चारों ओर हरियाली ही हरियाली छाए।
शीत ऋतु भी छूमंतर हो जाए,
जब बसंत अपने रंग-बिरंगे रंग दिखाएं।।

Christmas celebration is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. The festival reminds us that there has to be at least one day of the year to recap us that we are here for something else besides ourselves.
To celebrate this season of joy, our students from the Primary Wing participated in various activities with full enthusiasm and gaiety. Our little kids from playgroup, grade 1 and grade 2 participated in “Santa Mask Making”, “Reindeer Craft”, and “Santa Cap Paper Craft” making activity. Any Christmas celebration is incomplete without the presence of a Christmas tree and a snow man as it waves a magic wand over this world. To commemorate this thought students from Grade 3, 4 and 5 participated in paper folding snowman, Christmas tree paper cutting craft and greetings card making activities respectively.

Diwali is one of India’s biggest and main festival. The word Diwali means ‘row of lighted lamps.” In this festival, people lighten their house with diyas and lights as it is considered that light brings happiness. They also worship Goddess Lakshmi for good health and prosperity. It is said that Diwali is the brightest and joyful festival in the world. The DPSG Sushant Lok celebrated Diwali in the form of a Virtual Assembly. It was an astounding experience to have the senior and primary classes together in the Assembly. There were a series of events from Diya Lighting to Dance. The theme of the festival was a touch of “eco-friendly” activities. The students spread the message of “joy of giving” as it remains the main essence of any festival. The videos of the students spreading happiness with their community were captured. They also performed a series of eco friendly activities in the class. They prepared diyas, lanterns, torans, and rangolis (which marked the significance of respecting nature & happiness). The assembly also had a mellifluous song sung by Mr. Harshit and the students enthusiastically made a chorus of the same. The assembly had a special significance because the date coincides with Children’s Day. The Hindi Faculty Ms. Swati dedicated a beautiful poem on Children’s Day, which was indeed a motivation for the students. The assembly also had a special message from our beloved Principal Ma’am, Ms. Anshu Mittal for Covid workers and students.
The special assembly carried a special aura for all of us. In the times of pandemic, pollution, and changing weather it was like a soft touch of gratitude from the DPSG family.
