Children’s day 2019-20

Children’s day, to celebrate "Childhood"

HFS International marked the 2019 Children’s Day with weeklong celebrations that included activities like talent show; talk show on what they like and drawing competitions across all levels.

The most exciting of the activities was the interactive session with the celebrated author, Dav Pilkey. This event was organised by our Principal, Mrs. Kalyani Patnaik for students of Cambridge International grades 4 to 9 on 20th Nov, 2019. The students and parents were astounded by the plan.

Bestselling author DavPilkey hits the right note with HFSI students

Ahead of internationally acclaimed author, DavPilkey’s next instalment in the Dog Man series and as part of his global book tour, Hiranandani Foundation School, International organised a meet-and-greet opportunity for its students at the Royal Opera House, Charni Road. Busloads of primary and secondary students witnessed the bestselling American author share episodes of his turbulent childhood as he grappled with ADHD and Dyslexia and was often ostracised due to his disruptive ways. Pilkey spoke about the power of reading and reflected on the many ways books inspire. He encouraged his young audience to turn every challenge into an opportunity and make a positive difference with Pilkey’s three Ps-positivity, practice and persistence. He shared how his most loved comic book superheroes were created in the school hallway, where he would spend most of his time.Dog Man follows the adventures of a canine superhero who’s part dog and part policeman.It explores the universal themes of empathy, compassion, kindness and persistence.

Attendees were treated to fun activities including drawing sessions, photo opportunities with both the author and his very endearing Dog Man costumed character, autographed books, capes and giveaways. The ebullience was irrepressible even as theauthor appealed to the fevered psyche of his young spectators. ‘The world is my oyster’ and there wasn’t a dissenting voice!

All in all it was meaningful, effective and insightful.

Happy Children’s Day ever!
