Away from home is something new for kids. But our QMIS kids are used to it as they come and spend a night with their loveable teachers. We had the “Away from home” stay on 15.09.2018. After the hectic day of examination children of grade 2 came around 5.00.pm with their parents with lot of excitement and a smile on their face. Though the parents were very much concerned about staying away from the children, the kids just waved bye and said “see you” to their parents and started their day with their friends. The evening started off with a welcome drink followed by Edusports activities. After the Edusports they enjoyed watching the movie ”Boss Baby” Theatre atmosphere was brought in for the kids by serving popcorn to the kids . Watching the movie the children started feeling rats running inside the stomach as the lights were switched off. Then it was the time for dinner. Yummy dinner with sweet aroma awaited them as they entered the cafeteria.. It was really a delicious dinner which was relished by the kids .The children gathered in the basket ball court for camp fire and started dancing to the tunes played. The kids also had a surprise as they celebrated their friend Sai Dakshan’s birthday by cake cutting. This was followed by having dessert (banana and chocolate milk shake). After brushing teeth they went for a prayer and made their own bed for night sleep. All went to their bed and started sharing about their experience with their peer group. Next day morning 6’0clock children woke up and brushed their teeth. After warm up exercise they had their morning drink along with school made sandwich.
It was time to leave home and bid good bye for the friends. Children packed up their belongings and waited for their parents. While leaving it was only one word from all “When will be the next Slumber Bash”. This activity has developed the independency of the kids who can take care of themselves without anybody’s guidance.
