Pratham Books Champions : Nigam Pratibha Vidyalaya

Preetika Suri sent us the following story she, Ishita Paul, Harshini Shanker and Shubham Gautam (all Teach for India Fellows) coordinated a storytelling session that involved their entire school. They are 4 Teach for India fellows teaching 4 english-medium classrooms at MCD school Said-ul-ajab.

As in last year, this year also we were super exceited about the storytelling sessions and being part of a nation-wide initiative. However, we did not want to limit this to our classes only and shared with our school team - and they were happy to be a part and conduct storytelling sessions in each class in the school (in Hindi for Hindi medium).

Though we could share this with our teacher's only on Teacher's Day, the MCD teachers prepared over the next 2 days and we had school-wide storytelling and activities on 'Paplu' on 7th :)

Thank you Nigam Pratibha Vidyalaya for spreading the joy of reading!
