BENGALURU: Over 2,000 private unaided schools in the state will celebrate ‘Kannada Sapthaha’ during the first or second week of November to celebrate Kannada Rajyotsava.

As per instructions given by Associated Managements of Primary and Secondary Schools in Karnataka (KAMS), the member schools of the association will organise ‘Kannada Sapthaha’ with week-long cultural activities organised for children to help them understand the value and importance of Kannada language.
Schools have been asked to inform parents about the activities and asking them to encourage kids to take part in all events.

“The main agenda of organising ‘Kannada Sapthaha’ is to make students understand the value and importance of Kannada language,” said D Shashi Kumar general secretary of KAMS.
Preference would be given for bhavageete (light music). “When we prepare children for competition, they will learn with interest,” he said.

Apart from light music, schools have been asked to conduct essay competitions on Kannada language, history, art and culture.

Schools have been instructed to decorate premises using red and yellow paper. “All these years, this celebration was restricted to the school level. This time as it is a decision taken by the association, all member schools must follow it,” he mentioned.
