What do you get when you put a room full of children together with tools and wood under the guidance of carpenters? Delighted children! Carpentry is an activity that gives children the chance to get creative and work hands-on with raw material. Along with that, it also develops their hand-eye coordination, attention to detail and develops patience. At Walnut, we want our students to be precise in everything that they do and aim toward perfection. Arranging a carpentry workshop for our students gave us the perfect excuse to teach them all these skills! Students of Std. 6 to 8 were introduced to carpentry – related tools and the basic techniques of cutting and drilling. They were given individual wood pieces, from which they marked and cut their own key chains. The students also learnt how to use sandpaper for filing away the rough edges. They were also taught to drill a hole in the wooden key chain, under the supervision of experienced carpenters. The students were all smiles, for what they held in their hands was the result of their hard work and patience! With  Masti Ki Pathshala, which was conducted for the whole month, our students were exposed to a plethora of such activities – done exclusively for students of Walnut School!
