Makkala Habba, literally meaning ‘A festival of kids’ was held at Inventure Academy on March 25 2017. Celebrated with much enthusiasm and fervour, the Kindergarten Graduation event brought out the best talent of Inventure Kindergarteners. The kids had been working very hard for the past month to put up a wonderful show for the audience. Combining their best talents, which includes music, art (especially in the backdrop and props), dance and theater; this glorious day of celebration, awards and graduation was a huge success.
One of the major highlights of the event was, “Namma Neeru, Namma Ooru” (Our City, Our Water) a theater act put up by the children of KG1 & 2, which was a compilation of music, dance, drama and art. This spectacular act was presented in the form of characters from popular fairy tales who decide to come together to speak about a very important topic ‘saving water’.
The play began with four main characters; Chota Bheem, Superman, Mighty Raju & Dora who are friendly with the villagers in Sarjapur, Karnataka. The villagers, especially the farmers, were very unhappy as the village was facing a drought.
Unable to see their plight the four friends devised a plan to help them. They travel to various parts of the world, requesting their friends to help the villagers in their gloomy times.
The theater act was followed by a dance presented by the children of ‘Thayi Mane’, a children’s home located on Sarjapur road, Bangalore. They performed on the beautiful song ‘Taare Zameen Par’ where they emphasized on the importance of child education.
The event ended with the awards ceremony for the students, who were presented with a certificate for their special skills like ‘The Most Obedient Child’, ‘Miss Congeniality’ ‘The Smartest Kid’ etc.
A grand graduation ceremony followed where the children, along with their teachers cut a delicious chocolate cake. ‘Makkala Habba’ ended with much praise, admiration and love from the parents, families and friends of these incredible children!
