The celebrations of festivals, important days, customs and rituals in the School premises reveal a great deal about nurturing and inculcating good values in young minds.Celebrations in Sanjivani have become an integral part of joyful learning, community building and thought provoking processes. Religious festivals from across religions, national festivals and festivals related to our environment are celebrated with great enthusiasm, fervour and pride. Children are exposed to the essence of the festivals through stories, music, dance, food, discussions and a variety of hands-on activities and projects.
The festivals are not only connected to our social and environmental context but to one’s inner world too. Students learn about special foods, songs, clothes and loads of other information. The general atmosphere in the school also becomes festive when students are allowed on special days to come in appropriate clothes.
