Deepti recited the morning prayers.  Class nine student, Jia Zutshi, was the compere for the assembly. Ahana Punj recited the school pledge and class 8 student Maisha Rai presented the news headlines. Mansi presented the thought for the day.

Christmas Day is incomplete without the charisma of music and dance.  Christmas Carols were sung in the background of the traditional song of Jingle Bells. Class Nursery and Kindergarten students came dressed in red and white and wore Santa Claus caps for the occasion. Their dance performance on Jingle Bells and BTS Dynamite songs was the showstopper event.

Kindergarten students celebrated Christmas by watching a video on the birth of Jesus Christ. They also engaged in special activities such as cake decoration, carol singing, dance performances and fancy dress. They also made a Santa Claus using a variety of fruits and bread slices.

Students of class 1-5 engaged in competitions such as: gift wrapping, letter-writing to Santa, dressing up as Santa Claus or an elf and speaking about Christmas.

Education officer, Mrs Purnima Vohra Ma’am and Principal, Mrs Deepika Arora, addressed the students and wished them Merry Christmas.

“Christmas reminds us of the warmth hidden inside the heart of the winter season. It is that time of the year when we celebrate the goodness inside our hearts and spread joy around on the birth anniversary of Jesus Christ.  Christmas also signals the arrival of the New Year and with it the countless new possibilities and opportunities for all. I would like to wish all Apeejay students all the best for the coming year coming ahead and Merry Christmas to all”
