Later glimpses of storytelling interventions based on Kamishibai technique and a few others which had inspired the Kabirians , were shared by the concerned teachers of DIO .

Visitors were impressed with the outcomes of such sessions through which teacher accepts different perspectives of each student as well nudges them to think about the guided outcomes.

Later, the Pre Primary students who took the stage dressed as Mother Earth & Rocket Chandrayaan-2 were a visual treat and stole everyone’s heart .

The foreign delegates were awestruck by the display section where some self-made calendars and scrapbook were put up. They seemed stunned by the confidence with which the Kabirians shared the information about causes, solutions of various types of pollution.

Few sample worksheets which students had solved during academic sessions were also put up. Guests gave a patient hearing when they were explained about different types of wastes & colour coded dustbins. They also participated enthusiastically in the game, based on segregation of waste in different colored dustbins.

The most learning experience for the teacher student team of the Eco Club was when they took turns posing questions to the guests during Open House for exchanging best practices of respective countries.

Kabirians were extremely excited to show the Kitchen Garden being maintained by them in the campus & identified few medicinal herbs with their healing properties.

The event ended on a very informal and fulfilled note, when foreign nationals took to the floor with their young student counterparts for Garba!!
