PPT on famous Monuments of India
One of the most important aspects of heritage education is experiencing our culture. A historical monument is a rich source of History. It gives a sense of wonder and makes us curious to know more about the past connected with it. Pre-primary kids were taken on this journey through Power Point Presentation (PPT) on Tuesday 11th August. This PPT gave kids an opportunity to see the famous Monuments of India and understand the importance of preserving it.
To understand the theme ‘Discovery of India’ better, children were taken on a Field trip to MCEME on Wednesday 12th August. Children visited the Temple and Gurudwara to learn about the worship places of different religions.
On Friday 14th August teachers presented a PPT on our Famous leaders and Freedom fighters. Through this PPT children were introduced to a galaxy of our great national leaders. This PPT helped children to identify the leaders and freedom fighters. Teachers in turn emphasized on the contribution of these great leaders to our struggle for an independent India.

Parents please do get back to us if you have any suggestions or advise to give. It’s a pity that there is never a response to our newsletters –good or bad. It’s almost as if I am sending these in a vacuum with no readers or responders !
It would be great if these could turn into a two way communication in some small way.
CONGRATULATIONS TO US ALL ON OUR 69TH INDEPENDENCE DAY.
Director Principal, Suchitra Academy
