MGM Brings Chracters To Life
Mahatma Gandhi Memorial (MGM) Primary School students had a blast bringing their favourite story book characters story books to life. On Friday, the school ended the weeklong Library week and Suicide Prevention campaign with a character parade. Head teacher Chandra Kumar said: “The students took a lot of interest in showing their love for books and it was just mesmerising to see especially when technology has taken over the majority of our time.
“I am glad to see that these students know and understand the importance of books,” Mrs Kumar said.
Year 8 student, Shavlin Singh, 14, said: “We are given books to learn to read and write and that’s why we celebrate the Library Week to remind us how important books are in our lives. “We have libraries in our school and it gives us a chance to go, pick up a book that catches our eyes and read. “The more we read, the more we learn and the smarter we get,” Shalvin said. During Suicide Prevention Week, Mrs Kumar said: “As teachers, we educate our students about safety and security, but it also depends on the parents to teach their children about suicide. “We urge the parents to help us fight and create awareness against suicides amongst students. “Every life is important and we want to make our children’s lives better,” Mrs Kumar said.
