Every year on the 18th of April, the world commemorates World Heritage Day. To raise awareness about the culture and heritage of India amongst our young Salwanians, we at Salwan Montessori School celebrated World Heritage Day. Children were shown a virtual tour of various monuments. Each class adopted a state of India and showcased its magnificent culture, language, food, etc. Children came dressed up in colourful costumes of their chosen state to participate in the state dances and relished the yummy food and delicacies of their state by celebrating Food Fiesta.

The young Salwanians celebrated the whole week by solemnly pleading to preserve and protect the legacy of our heritage and culture.

Our Heritage is our identity! Let’s preserve it.

Earth Day pledging to nurture and protect our planet for generations to come

โ€œUnderstand the worth of Earth, treat it with care and give the love it deserves.โ€

In our endeavor to spread awareness about conserving Earth and to commemorate our benevolent mother Earth, Salwan Montessori School celebrated โ€˜Earth Dayโ€™ on Monday, 22nd April 2024.

The day started with a special assembly, where the children presented a Nukkad Natak and shouted out slogans to spread the message of โ€˜Save Environment, Save Earthโ€™. The enthusiastic dance performances by the children conveyed a strong message about the little things we can do in order to take care of our Earth like- reduce the use of plastic, reusing old items and recycling waste. A tree plantation activity was also scheduled in which parents, children, teachers, and support staff took part in the โ€˜Go-Green initiativeโ€™ by planting a sapling. Also, our little Salwanians made a beautiful โ€˜Save Earthโ€™ badge to mark the occasion.

The children enthusiastically participated in various activities. Each one of them took a pledge to save Mother Earth by doing simple doable actions.

It was a great day to showcase environmental education and highlight the efforts to save our resources.

A Mother's Day Celebration filled with love and appreciation

“A mother’s love is a special bond between a mother and her child that can never be broken.”

Mothers are embodiment of GOD and are one who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take. No words can explain the power and beauty of a motherโ€™s love and care. So, to honor the mothers and pay an ode to Motherhood, Salwan Montessori School celebrated โ€˜Motherโ€™s Dayโ€™ on Thursday, 9th May 2023. The tiny tots came up with their dance presentations to convey gratitude to their moms for their unconditional love. The very enthusiastic Moms also participated in various activities like Ramp Show, Dance Recital and Singing Recital based on the theme โ€˜Be the Changeโ€™ referring to any positive change that you wish to see in the society, or environment.

It was a pleasure watching the super excited moms with their dynamic and energetic children during these activities. The moms had a splendid time playing various fun games planned, especially for them. The school acknowledged and appreciated the efforts put in by the mothers for their passionate participation and presented a little token of love that filled the air with heart-warming feelings of love, gratitude, and appreciation.

All in all, it was an enjoyable and memorable day for everyone!
