International Dot Day is celebrated across the globe every year on the 15th of September. The day signifies the celebration of – the artist in us, creativity, and the teacher-student relationship. Peter H. Reynolds’ picture book ‘The Dot’ has not only been adored by children but has inspired adults as well. In classrooms, many teachers use the story to encourage their students to make a difference in their lives.
This celebration is all about making your mark and see where it can take you. The students of ‘The Gaudium School’ celebrated ‘International Dot Day’ by making their mark, showing their creativity, and connecting the dots not only with family and friends but with the entire world.
Students of early years showed their creativity by using dots to make a picture. Grades 1 and 2 drew/coloured within a dot and displayed their creativity. Grade 3 made their mark in the frame while students of grades 4 and 5 shared about how and why they want to make a difference in the life of a person.
In the DP segment, the teachers of the Arts department collaborated and made a wonderful presentation to foster creativity in students through the special assembly. The students were shown and briefed about various art forms using a dot. Teachers at The Gaudium School always believe in encouraging creativity and instilling confidence in students.
“Every Child is an artist”- Pablo Picasso’s words came to life as children celebrated ‘International Dot Day’ at The Gaudium School.
