Dr. Peyush Gupta, Principal, GEMS Gurukul International School,Nawalgarh, Rajasthan sent us the following note about the storytelling session conducted in their school on 7th September.
Our today's session was very exciting and all our team members are really grateful to you for organising such a beautiful activity for our children.Almost 200 students and 6 teachers were occupied in such a great event. Having such activities on Literacy Day makes lot of sence. Our staff was so excited that they were involved in preparing for this activity even on teacher's day. Our students and staff all enjoyed the story and learnt a lesson from a Paplu the Giant that power is to serve the society and not to disturb.
We are very thankful to you and your team for arranging books and other material in time.
At last but not least, Thanks to all Pratham Books Team.
