Christmas is a season of love and joy. Soaking in the spirit of the season, the students of Kids.R.Ok celebrated Christmas on Sunday, 20th December 2020. The Christmas program, called ‘Season’s Greetings’, was conducted virtually through Zoom from 5 – 6 pm. Parents, teachers and students from Thiruvanmiyur, Saidapet and Vysarpadi joined the meeting.
The program started with a prayer followed by a small icebreaker game for the students and the staff. The students from Thiruvanmiyur and Saidapet entertained the audience with their energetic dance performances. The true meaning of Christmas was beautifully portrayed through a skit by the students of Saidapet. They mentioned that Christmas is a time of giving and sharing with those around us, but that sharing is not limited to those that we love and care for. It is also for the people that we have never met, will never see and those that are not so fortunate in their lives as we are, who could use a helping hand. Students of Vyasarpadi also dressed up as ‘Christmas Heroes’, portraying the different characters and elements of the Christmas story. Christmas reminds people of family, gifts, cookies, Santa Claus and of course, decorations! Maheshwari from Thiruvanmiyur showed that these decorations can also be made at home by teaching us how to make a Christmas wreath.
The program came to an end with Christmas wishes from the organisers and teachers. The children also posed for a picture at the end of the program and the boundless joy of celebrating the festival was clearly visible on the faces of all the children.
The children participated with enthusiasm and truly upheld the spirit of Christmas though the program was conducted virtually
