The children enacted a dance drama in kannada. They participated with enthusiasm, and the purpose was being creative, thought provoking apart from language development.
The parents could experience first hand how the Adra school – philosophy, methodology, mentors together could facilitate the various developmental and innate needs of the children, in a spontaneous manner.
It is just important for all of us as adults in any environment not to suppress this spontaneity across all aspects when they grow, especially during this stage of development.
