United Colours of 124 Gonzagaites Mark ‘Colours Day’ at St Aloysius Gonzaga School
Mangaluru: Quoting Allen Klein “Your attitude is like a box of crayons that colour your world. Try adding some bright colours to the picture by including humour, and your picture begins to lighten up”, Childhood is the most beautiful of all life’s seasons. A little splash of colour can brighten up the day and when it’s Colour Day in the Kindergarten Block, the day is truly kaleidoscopic. Colour Day gives us the opportunity to take the tiny tots into a magical world where colours come alive. Each colour so unique and special in making the world we live in so beautiful – Just like each little boy and girl in our care, unique and so very special. Colours are the smiles of nature! With the same smile and enthusiasm the Tiny Tots of St Aloysius Gonzaga School celebrated its colours day, with an aim to teach the children about the colours which we see in our day to day life
One of the most interesting and perhaps the hardest concepts to teach a child is “colors”. But at the same time they love anything bright and colorful, isn’t the fact very interesting? At St Aloysius Gonzaga School, Kodialbail-Mangaluru, the management and teachers have their own ways to introduce to their little angels to different concepts, so their innovative team left a long lasting impression of different bright colors, on the little minds by celebrating the “Colour Day” filled with fun and frolic. Children all attired in beautiful and colourful outfits, joined also by the teachers and parents also attired in gorgeous and colorful attire, made Yours Truly Totally “Colour Blind?”
Yes, Colour and shapes are two very noticeable attributes of the world around us. Pre Primary Education gives a base to colours before a child learns other skills of reading, writing and arithmetic.
