The Kalyani School presented their yearly ‘Mad about…’ extravaganza, on 21st of December, the last working day before the winter vacation started. This year we went ‘Mad about the Environment’. Throughout the year, the students from Grades Jr. KG to XI, along with their teachers and parents, worked on, spoke on, debated and wrote on, everything related to our environment: the resources, problems it is facing at present, and the possible solutions. The parents visited the school and helped the Kalyaniites in exploring the projects, and diligently explained its various aspects to the children. Like every year, every method of learning was used to make the experience rich and lasting. The interpersonal, intrapersonal, kinaesthetic, spatial, oral and creative skills were all honed and nurtured. The final presentation on the D–Day, was spectacular. Mr. Deepak Dalal, the renowned author, and environment enthusiast visited as the Chief Guest. He spoke on the topic to the audience, stressing on the fact, that though the state of our environment is indeed dire, there is still hope for a better future, if each of us understands our responsibilities towards it, and works on them. The audience was mesmerized by the brilliant displays, and the beautiful cultural program, specially designed on the theme. At the end of the first segment, Nirmal Ma’am and Deeksha Ma’am unveiled the theme for the next ‘Mad about…’ series. In 2020, TKS has decided to go ‘Mad about Books’.
