The primary students had field trips in the year. As the kindergarten children are too small to be taken out, we thought we could get some fun for them in the school itself. So we had a merry go round, a giant wheel and a bouncing castle brought to the school early in the morning, before the children reached school and we were all ready to give them a big surprise.
Well, the KG kids start coming in at 8 am and the primary kids start coming in at 7. When the primary kids saw all this equipment set up, they pleaded their case to the teachers and very earnestly requested access to the play equipment. Some even made up poems about why they should be allowed on the bouncing castle! The teachers were surprised that even the 4th and 5th standard students were still fascinated by stuff like this! Anyway, they had a blast when they were allowed on it in between the KG batches. But what a time the toddlers of kindergarten had! It was priceless to see their faces when they saw the set up. The mamma children didn’t even wait for the routine goodbye hug and kiss in the morning.
They just ran in and were clapping, jumping, laughing and shrieking with joy the whole time. They were absolutely delighted and no one wanted to go home when school was over. They thoroughly enjoyed every moment of their day. They bounced so much that we are sure they must have slept soundly as soon as their heads hit the pillow that evening.
