Little Explorers’ Events: 2010-2021
Sri Lanka, a multi cultural nation has several festivals through the year. At “Little Explorers” we celebrate as many of these as possible every school term. In January, the Hindu festival of Thai Pongal is depicted in a simple way, followed by Independence Day on 4th February. Before the first term ends, we have Easter and Sinhala and Tamil New Year celebrations as well. In May, it is Vesak and so on, ending the year with Christmas festivities.
We are also pleased that in these past ten years, we have done some “stage productions” and held arts and crafts exhibitions by the students. Getting into costume, reciting their lines, and acting out their roles has helped build their confidence, improve their speech and in general, helped in their growth and development. Given below is a list of the events held in the past ten years.
