Colours break the monotony of a monochrome world and life. A line from the song in ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara’ says it the best: ‘Take the world and paint it red’. This is what the festival of holi is all about, to let the colours of life touch one’s soul.   

Holi is one of the most popular Indian festivals. It is also known as the ‘Festival of Colours’. The festival celebrates Lord Krishna and the legend of Holika and Prahlad.  Catching in the festive fervour, Apeejay Svran Global School celebrated Holi in an eco-friendly manner by organizing special workshops for the students of the school on March 15.

Classes Nursery and Kindergarten students painted T-shirts using a variety of colours. A special online workshop was conducted to help them learn about the same. Equipped with paints, brushes, water and a white t-shirt, the tiny tots began to put their creativity to use by painting colourful smileys, water-guns and Holi slogans on their T-shirts. They also made colourful hand impressions on the same.

Students of classes 1 and 2  prepared an eye mask which would keep their eyes safe from colours while playing Holi. The teachers demonstrated the mask making process through simple steps which were followed diligently by all students. The process resulted in numerous colourful and creative eye-masks. It was a great learning experience for all the students. 

A workshop on tie and dye printing technique was organized for the students of Class 3, 4 and 5. Ms. Anjali Yadav conducted the workshop and demonstrated the technique involving all the students in an immersive hands-on activity session.

The students were informed about the origin and history of tie and dye printing technique in India. Students made vibrant patterns on a cotton cloth using the tie and dye technique. All the students thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and were able to express their creativity through the myriad hues of colours.

Principal, Mrs. Deepika Arora, praised the efforts of the students. She highlighted that Holi is a day to express love with colours and urged the students to play Holi safely by avoiding artificial colours, which are dangerous for the skin as well as the environment.


“May the colourful festival of Holi bless all the students with shades of confidence, motivation, knowledge and brighten their lives with new energy and hope. We wish that all enjoy this special day to the fullest. Warm wishes on Holi to all!”

-Deepika Arora, Principal, Apeejay Svran Global School
