Break for the Holidays

Yesterday was the last day of school before Shikshamitra begins its holiday break for Durga Puja and Eid, and all the other small pujas in between.

I brought in lots of paint brushes and paint, telling the children we needed to clean the school up before leaving. They were elated to know that I meant we were all going to paint the walls that have become very dingy and gray over the past three years. The results were colorful and uplifting! After we finished painting we all went for ice cream at the house of a teacher who lives close by. What a great way to end a long session of hard work. Enjoy the holidays everyone!
