To curate the inner child in everyone, students of Class II shared interesting stories with their peers during their online sessions. Their connotations, pitch and props used kept everyone hooked. Stories, either fiction or non-fiction have a universal appeal, irrespective of age and other diverse forms of entertainment. Children always learn a thing or two about morality while adults revisit their faculty of interpretation.

The school organised virtual dance competition for the pre-Primary wing 'Dazzling Stars'. The participants were asked to introduce their dance forms through the video. It was a freestyle competition and participants sent in their individual dance videos to the teachers' in-charge. The participants dressed in colourful costumes, twirled around with their thrilling performances. Looking at the enthusiasm of the little ones Principal Jagjit Sekhon said dance competition at school is not only about trophies. It is a great way to build emotional resilience in children by giving them a goal to work for and while they strive towards achieving it, there is an increase in their self-confidence and self-esteem.
