Lemmon World School kids enthrall
S.A.S. NAGAR, November 30, 2011: It was an evening to relish for the audience, comprising mostly parents, as the tiny tots and their older fellow students weaved magic with a medley of songs, dance and skits at the second annual day function of Greater Mohali’s smartest and most talked about Lemmon World School on Wednesday evening.
Captivated by the performances in the open air theater of the school, enhanced by special light and sound effects, the parents could not hold themselves back and hummed and danced in sync with the children. Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, who was the guest of honour, was also seen enjoying every moment of his brief stay in the school.
Beginning the evening with melodious `shabad gayan’ and `mantra’, the tiny tots from pre nursery to class 3 swayed innocently to the music while rendering Old MacDonald, que Sara Sara and Coco Jumbo and Ketchup. The animal rhymes of Nursery and KG students and Punjabi and patriotic dances brought up the rear of the absorbing evening which kept the audience spellbound.
Visibly impressed by the infrastructure and facilities at the school, the deputy chief minister remarked, “we need more such schools to create a strong foundation for our children and free them from the bondage of a fixated education system.”
Earlier, in his welcome speech founder director of the School Tejinder Singh Walia said : “At Lemmon World School we aim to bring the world to your child. We provide a spacious and a safe environment in 6 acres of Wi-Fi campus. Our
e-classrooms provide the perfect platform to students to discover the tools, to build their vision and fulfill their dreams as they are based on audio visual aids (smart classes). The effective physical growth of the child is taken care of by the huge playgrounds, tennis clay courts and a mini golf course.
“The amphitheater (open air theatre) makes our young minds feel one with nature and everything is learnt with enjoyment. Our tiny tots spread their wings and let out their energies at the splash pool specially created for them. Safety of the children is our prime concern. We have security round the clock for the school, seat belts in AC buses, non toxic toys and furniture with safe edges. Music and dance classes add to the rhythm of life.
“The school, which presently has classes Pre-Nursery to class 5, will add class 6 from the coming academic year and subsequently keep adding one class each year. It will be affiliated to CBSE and will grow upto class XII. Minimum age for enrolment in the school is 1 year and 8 months,” he added.
In her thanks-giving speech, principal of the school Geeta Kaushik, while appreciating the hard work and creativity put into the show by the students and the teachers, thanked Mr Sukhbir Singh Badal for encouraging them with his presence.
