Fun in the Sun: Punjab school hosts a beach bash

With sandy toes and ocean tides, students beat the summer heat



As the scorching summer sun is gradually reaching its peak, Rhythms Kinderworld School in Jalandhar, Punjab, organised an exciting beach party for tiny tots. With the aim of providing a refreshing and enjoyable experience, the school transformed its premises into a vibrant tropical paradise. The beach party in the school proved to be a delightful escape for the young students, offering a range of thrilling activities and a chance to beat the heat in the most cheerful way possible.

Setting the Scene:

On a relatively cool morning, the school brimmed with anticipation as the preparations for the beach party were in full swing. The school was converted into a mini seaside getaway, complete with colourful beach umbrellas, décor and a big pool. The delightful setup instantly transported the young children to a coastal paradise, evoking their imagination and excitement. Those from grade Pre-Nursery to Upper Kindergarten participated on the big day. Besides, the school educators, Mr Malkiat Singh, Principal at Apeejay School, Model Town and Ms Nidhi Ghai, In-charge were also present.

According to Ms Ghai, “The event was focused to enhance our students’ socialising skills before they break for summer. We wanted them to carry happy memories as well as cherish their time in the school before the vacations.”

Activities Galore:

The beach party offered an array of activities carefully curated to cater to the needs and interests of the tiny tots. Kids came dressed up in their swimming costumes and even brought their swimming accessories along. They had a gala time, tapping their little hands and feet, bubbling with excitement and enthusiasm splashing water at their friends and playing with floating toys.

Water play was at the heart of the event, with inflatable pools and sprinklers dotting the sandy beach. Accompanied by their teachers and fellow classmates, they indulged in friendly water fights and built sandcastles, showcasing their creativity and imagination. Laughter and cheers echoed through the air as they bravely balanced themselves, emulating the thrill of conquering the water waves.

According to Dr Angelina Kaur Rekhi D’Souza, mother of student Seher, “My daughter had a great time at the party. She was excited since the very day she was notified about it. From then on, two weeks went into the preparation. On the day of the party, she thoroughly enjoyed herself and after reaching home kept sharing several anecdotes of the activities. Now, Seher is keen to learn how to swim.”

Learning through Fun:

While the beach party primarily aimed to provide an entertaining respite, it also subtly incorporated elements of learning. The children engaged in activities that promote sensory development, hand-eye coordination, and imaginative play. By integrating educational components into the event, Apeejay ensured that the young students continued to grow and learn even in their moments of leisure and enjoyment.

According to Ms Abha Sharma, mother of Manvvik, “My son enjoyed himself a lot. After returning home, he had many stories to share since this was the first time he entered a pool with his friends. When I looked at the pictures of the day, I hoped to be there too. In addition to this, the school organised the event very well. It was colourful, spacious and adorned with props and toys. There were educators and staff present at all times. The school took very good care of Manvvik and his teachers ensured that he was facing no obstacles while learning with fun.”

The beach party for these tiny tots proved to be a resounding success, offering a memorable experience for children. The event provided a safe and exciting environment to the little ones and allowed them to embrace the spirit of summer through water play, games, and imaginative activities. As the sun set on the beach party, it left behind a trail of happy memories.
