“There is more treasure in books than in all the Pirate’s loot on treasure island”.  -Walt Disney               

“There is no friend as loyal as a book”. To highlight the importance of reading to our budding nation DPS GBN organized a special week Book Week- Readathon for grade 1 and 2 from May 7, 2024 to May 9, 2024.

On the first day, we celebrated birthday to commemorate the eminent Bengali Poet ‘Sri Rabindranath Tagore’ and telling children about his life, journey, influential writings and literacy contribution in English. On next day of Book Week- Readathon, different story books were given to children to nurture the habit of reading, oratory abilities and critical writings. The week concluded with designing of a book review form for the story they pleased reading. It provided hands-on experiences which resulted in reading and writing proficiency of the children.
