World Children’s Day
Palathuduwa Preschool celebrated World Children’s Day on October 1st. Many preschools celebrate this day as it is very special for children. We organized a party for children. In the morning children played on the school playground. Our children like to eat noodles, so parents and teachers cooked noodles for them. In addition, we provided ice cream, chocolates, and toffee. Finally, we played songs for the children to dance to.
In November we held an exhibition where we displayed the creations the children made throughout the year. Villagers as well as some preschools near ours came to visit our children’s exhibition and view the many creations. We believe the event was a success. The children enjoyed seeing their creations on display.
On December 1st we held our preschool concert with the head of the temple, Gramasewaka, and a school teacher participating as the chief guests. The event was conducted successfully by the teachers and the parents who helped them, and many people attended. The children performed well on the stage. With money donated from a parliament minister, teachers had purchased presents for the children, and they presented a pair of shoes to each child at the concert.
