November is a special month for Scholastic India. Across the country, thousands of schools participate in our annual event One Nation Reading Together by bringing together children, teens and books. To celebrate it we rolled out activities at various locations in Delhi & NCR on every Friday of November as a build up to this wonderful annual event that binds the nation to celebrate reading
On the last two consecutive fridays, we organized “Stories @ Sunset” in two schools in different parts of the city - Mayoor School, Noida and Bal Bharati Public School, New Delhi.
They were both magical evenings of storytelling in the perfect ambience of early winter. The moonlit night and chill in the air combined with the scintillating story-telling was an absolute delight for the 400-500 children, parents and teachers from across the cluster schools, who attended the different events. The success of the night was brought out by the overwhelming support given to us by the host schools. This was further enhanced by the interactive audience who loved the different forms and flavors of storytelling which were weaved together charmingly by the Storytellers.
