On the 26th of January (I know, this blog is late) was republic day. This marks the date (26th January) that the Indian Constitution came into force.
We were joined by Bharavi and Fra – the Project Trust India representative – to celebrate the day. Andhra school often goes quite big on celebrations like this, and republic day was no difference. All of my students had been getting excited and telling me all about it for a week before.
The whole school came to watch the performances. There was traditional Indian dancing by a young girl Catherine teaches, a very well organised dance using saris to make the flag and a slightly less well organised dance/performance/pyramid piece by the boys.
And then of course in true Indian style there was a lot of different foods to eat after!
