The celebrations have begun at the preschool centres with all the tiny little children. The practice sessions have continued for weeks, the preparations to set up the stage is complete and parents are excited to see their little ones perform on stage, all dressed up in different costumes and accessories.
To accommodate all the centres in the celebrations, the Preschool team divided all the centres into 5 groups and hence, the celebrations are to take place in 5 areas, where the groups of preschool centres are to perform their set of dance/skit/recitation etc. And today, we started with Vikroli area celebrations!
Present at the event were all the parents of the preschool centres, other community citizens, the entire team of Preschool project as well as Jaume Sanllorente (General Director) and Ines Ramos (Deputy Director). And we especially want to thank Rumana Hamied, who is the CEO of our CSR Partner, Cipla Foundation, along with some other representatives of Cipla who came to visit this event today, taking time out of their schedule and cheered on for the children performing onstage. Also, enjoying the event were two of our visitors, Noelia, who is a very important members of our GAS volunteer group in Spain, and Yaser, a student of our GD-Founder Jaume and they really seemed to enjoy the event as well and clicking photos of the lovely exhibition put up by the teachers and parents of the preschool kids.
While this was just the first day of celebrations, there are more days of events follow to ensure that all the children get equal stage exposure and we will update this blog with more photos of the events too!
Happy Children’s Day 2017 to all!
