Day Two - Bawa Lalvani

Today I visited Bawa Lalvani Public School for the first time.

When I arrived I was greeted by some children who presented me with a garland and flowers in the colours of the Indian flag.

The day began with a special assembly which included singing, dances and prayers. This was followed by a welcoem performance by the school band who were spectacular!

As the school was celebrating Children's Day, there was a staff vs. students cricket match in the morning. This was greeat fun and I was even talked into taking part in some of it! The students won in the end (but not by much!).

After this, I had a tour of the school and met lots of the children in their classrooms. It was lovely to talk to them and many of them asked me questions and told me about their lessons. I was lucky enough to join in with some dancing in a dance lesson and also asked some children to show me how to use some of their special ICT equipment which helps them to learn their spellings and work on their phonics.

In the afternoon, when the childrne had gone home, the staff came together to have their own small celebration for children's day and we sang songs and played games together which was fun and a nice opportunity to talk to more of the teachers from the school.

This afternoon we went to visit Science City which is a local, hands-on, science museum which the children sometimes visit on school trips. We had a good look around and tried out some of the activities too!

This evening we went to Haveli for dinner. There they serve traditional Punjabi food in an authentic setting and it was fantastic! I had Thali for as second time which was delicious and I also drank sweet lassi which is a sugary, milky drink.

I am off to bed now as I have an early start again i the morning. I will be at bawa Lalvani again but this time I will be meeting the Eco Champs for the school, sharing your work with children, talking about our school and leading some story and drama activities with the infants! I can't wait!
