‘A book is a gift one can open again and again’. With each important day being observed with gravity, a weeklong activity schedule was designed for the Shemstars at Shemford Futuristic School, Pinjore, on account of International Book Day. Books being the best friend and guide for every student, this week was given due importance. Special assembly was conducted in which the students were motivated to inculcate the good habit of reading. Various activities like storytelling, finding and learning proverbs and idioms, story writing, poem recitation, making book marks, designing book covers, poster making were conducted class wise. The week culminated with a three day book exhibition organized in the school premises which was a grand success. The Keen Shemstars eagerly added books to their private libraries.
