"A Book is a device to light the Imagination"
Bookaroo the Festival of Children's Literature was a heartwarming learning for all who attended the fest. The students attended the sessions appropriate to their age at the Curio Corner, Doodle Wall, The Kahani Tree, and the Auditorium. The sessions in the Auditorium were just mind-blowing. The sessions were attended at the Auditorium Glucksbringer by Kathrin Rohmann, Fun Facts and Temples by Sudha G Tilak, and Decoding Mysteries of History. These sessions were a blast from the past. The secrets which were decoded were the unusual journey of history. These sessions will help the students to explore and they were just enthralling.

On 26 November 2022, we went to Delhi for the Bookaroo Festival. We read books and listened to podcasts. One of the biggest challenges of the journey started when we entered the festival of Bookaroo. At the festival, there were so many writers and different kinds of books so we visited the bookshop and bought many books for the library and signed it by the writers of the books. We enjoyed it a lot, we clicked photos with them. They were polite. And I want to thank Principal ma'am, Bharti ma'am, and Priyadarshan sir because we visited Bookaroo festival and learned new things. And we enjoyed every bit of the trip. Some girls won slime in-game, clay, and books. 
On this trip, we learned how to travel alone, and how to be responsible without our parents. This journey was more memorable than other journeys. And all writers signed the books which we purchased for the library. The bookstore has all the things which children want. And in the future, I hope that we could be part of this event again.

We went to the Rail Museum, Chanakyapuri, for a Bookaroo fest. I attended a storytelling session whose name was Apple Cake and Baklava. It was quite a good experience. We learned a lot of German words like Heimat, Brobutter, Glück bringer, Walnuts, Schule, and Garten. And we also saw the Rail Museum. which shows how the evolution of the Indian Railway took place. And there were also models of different parts of a train. We attended one session named Kahani Tree of which we attended 3 sessions named Khichdi, Solar System, & Gravity in which we learned a lot about Science. It was an amazing session. We played a game there too, in which we won slim/ muddy clay and bookmarks. We also bought some books for our library and our own like Temple Tales, misfit Madhu, How to be a writer, Written in Stars, etc. We all should surely read these books which have a meaningful moral. And on this trip, we learned how to travel alone on a train, how to be responsible without our parents, and how we should use our money. It was one of the most memorable and full of gain experiences.

We learned plenty of new things in the museum but along with this, during the traveling from our school to Delhi and back to school we had a great experience with new learnings. During our talking and listening to others’ thoughts we also have got knowledge of something we never thought we would know. And at the Rail Museum, we also discovered about trains, their parts, their different types, and many more. We loved this trip and would love to have more in the future.

Our school gave us a great opportunity to become a part of the Bookaroo fest which was held in Delhi. I learned a lot of things there. I went to the Curio Corner where there was a session running which was held by Simran Bhui. The name of the session is ' Are you secretly a trickster'. In this session, I learned how to overpower fear and how to become unstoppable and confident about anything. I enjoyed the Bookaroo very much. We also bought some books for our school's library. And I met many new authors like Simran Bhui, Divya Anand and Anushka Ravishankar, etc. I appreciate Principal ma'am for giving me an opportunity like this.  Thank you to all the teachers who were with us.

"Books are a uniquely portable magic" 
It was a hub of learning where every gesture of the surrounding people had something new to learn. The moment I sat in the auditorium I was amazed to see the tiny tots so carefully listening to the session and actively answering the questions.  Enjoyed every bit of our excursion.  In Ms. Kathrin roman's session, we learned a lot. At the Curio Corner, we had a session 'Are you secretly a trickster' There Simran Bhui Ma'am talked about how to overcome fear and dilemmas. At the auditorium, we attended ' Decoding mysteries of History ' by Ms. Lakshmi Ravi Shankar. It was a fantastic session full of magic mysteries of Indian History. We look forward to spreading our learning to our other friends and making them explore this heaven of books and literature.

International day for the abolition of Slavery
"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves"
Every year on 2 December, the international day for the abolition of slavery is celebrated, which still exists worldwide.. Many Americans think of slavery as something from history. This type of slavery involved ownership and force The general assembly puts a very serious action in 1865. But unfortunately, slavery still exists in the world. As a report, from 2016 to 2021 slavery increased in the world. These groups also include tribal minorities, indigenous people, and those who belong to low castes so we have to take serious action against them.
