A book is a gift you can open again and again.
- Garrison Keillor
True … no better gift than a book. But not many of us realize this. However, teachers are one sect among us who can never stop loving books, knowing the importance these small books with a few pages. And thus, teachers of St. Xavier’s Senior Secondary School got together to hold a book fair in its premises.
The school got together with Scholastic, a book publisher specializing in children’s books, to hold a small book fair for the junior students of St. Xavier’s.
The excitement among students was clearly visible as we saw students of Grade 2 rushing towards the stalls. We assumed looking at the gleeful faces of the students that it must have been tough for the teacher to keep those kids in control. How could they have?! That excitement for books!
Well, what was funny for us to note was a clear gender division between girls and boys. While the girls rushed towards Barbie, Mermaid, and DIY activity books, boys were all too excited for Transformers, Spaceships, etc. However, the two genders soon merged and showed their favor alike for math puzzles, activity and drawing books.
There were some books displayed for the young adults too, like Ela by Sampurna Chattarji, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, there yet were the likes of Jack Collins and Paulo Coelho too!
The students, however, were not allowed buying books on their own, each one was advised to come along with their parents the next day to buy their choice of books. Puzzled we must have looked as one of the teachers came forward to explain to us that there was a reason behind this. The aim behind this was making parents get more involved with children and their activities. The motto of inculcating a habit of book reading was always there.
The entire school turned into a mini zoo with sounds of barking, chirping, meowing as the young ones brought different breeds of dogs, cats, parrots, parakeets, birds, fish, etc, to the campus.
Alumni meet - as much as we grow up, we never stop missing school days. Joining alumni associations and thus getting to meet school friends as we stay busy with our professional lives definitely makes us nostalgic and reminiscing those years.
