A mix of creativity and imagination brought to life magical yarns, sparkling night skies and colourful folk dances at Eduspora, the project day celebration of Velammal Vidyalaya, Mel Ayanambakkam, on Wednesday. The event was presided over by the chief guest, Dr P Shankar, principal, Saveetha University, Thandalam. More than 280 projects were on display at the expo which was organised by the middle school students.
An exciting adventure
In the aptly titled Magical Wonderland Section, students captured scenes from the pages of evergreen fairy tales including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Midas Touch and Pinocchio. For the artistic youngsters who relived the adventures of their favourite bedtime tales with their effervescent portrayal, it was a dream come true.
Setting the stage for a space odyssey in the Fun with Space Section, students traced the beginning of the universe, the sun and the stars, with their glow-in-the-dark models of the planetary system.
With infectious energy levels and deft footwork, the youngsters wowed the audience with their power-packed rendition of the myriad genres of the traditional Tamil folk dances, including Thapattam, Ooyilattam and Puliyattam, and underscored the different facets of the language. In another section, budding mathematicians entertained the junior classes with a plethora of fun-with-math games and exciting prizes too.
Fun with learning
Sounds of the wild reverberated in the Bio World Section that had intriguing trivia on the different habitats and how they nurtured the survival skills of men, animals and vegetation, underlining the key theme of the section — adaptation.
Not to be left behind, students of the junior classes donned the roles of the different parts of the speech with their Happy Grammar Family project, giving an interesting twist to learning grammar. A slew of word games and tongue-twister challenges also added to the excitement.
