Season of Festivals

The pupils carried out research work on prominent festivals in Nigeria and India. They learnt about their origin and importance and made picture books based on their findings. They also Role played the festivals.

There was a Skype session with pupils of L. P. Savani Academy in India to compare festivals of the two countries.

Riverside Montessori School later organised a Colour festival involving pupils, teachers and parents. It was an awesome and unforgettable experience for everyone involved

The pupils are able to name some festivals celebrated in Nigeria and India, their origin and importance. They appreciate the similarities and differences of festivals in both countries and understand that festivals are a global phenomenon. They are now better informed about the rich culture of both countries.
