MAMS Junior Wing Annual Day Report
The Annual Day held on 18th February 2019 was put together beautifully by the staff and students of MAMS. The celebrations started at 9:30 am and concluded by noon. The students and parents of the Junior Wing, the teachers, the student leaders of the Senior School, the Principal, the Director, the Board members and guests of the school were all in attendance.
The event kick-started by welcoming Chief Guest, Dr Rajendra Singh, who is known for his long line of work in water conservation. The popular actor and model Mr Rishi Miglani was the Guest of Honour. The guests were received by the students of MAMS and presented with plant saplings cultivated in the MAMS garden. The lighting of the lamp was accompanied by Saraswati Vandana, a prayer to the Goddess of wisdom and learning. The students of Grade II and Grade III enthralled the audience with their performance of the Welcome Song and Dance.
The tiny tots of Playgroup and Nursery enacted a skit that drove home the “Save Water” message to the audience. Even the students of KG and class I performed a skit.

The STEAM lab concept was presented to the parents at length by Ms Avni – Representative, STEAM Maker Space.
