The sun shone brighter than usual, energy ran high amongst tiny Bhavanities as they steadily walk towards T.A.G. Auditorium situated in the campus.
Readathon, a name derivation and combination of ‘Reading Marathon’ organised by Bhavan’s Rajaji Vidyashram in an association with Aban Scientific Reading, Fast For Word and Reading Assistant is aimed at promoting and inculcating good reading habits and nurturing readers.
Ms. Tahsin Chacko, General Manager of Scholastic India, was the chief guest of the event. She laid emphasis on the importance of reading. Ms.Sriranjani Srinivasan one of the main teachers-in-charge, exclaimed that the teachers were as excited as the students were.
The team efforts of primary teachers encouraged the 1200 little students, who enthusiastically read aloud a short story in perfect synchronisation with one-and-other. The event was kick started by students of class 3 to 5, followed by the reading session of 1st and 2nd graders.
The mass reading held on Sep. 2 was an interactive event and the reading session was followed by a video, enjoyed by all children. While the faculty of Bhavan’s eagerly waits to conduct the same next year too, young students seem equally thrilled about such a fun-filled event.
