Vanita Vaswani and Bhakti Kothary, both parents of Grade 1 students were instrumental in organizing this year’s Holi event. Ms. Vaswani recalls a similar experience she implemented with Ms. Kothary in their students’ class, “Last year, we brought Holi to the Kindergarten class and the kids had such a great time. We thought, why not get more classes involved this year? My son, Luca, had so much fun sharing his culture with his friends and I could see that Bhakti’s daughter and the other students that presented this year had a great time sharing too. There is so much value in bringing events like this to Mount Vernon. The world is so small now that if kids grow up not knowing about other cultures, it’s a disadvantage.”
Opportunities like these also give students the chance to practice their presenting and public speaking skills, as well as foster deeper connection and understanding with their classmates.
Many thanks to the parents who helped organize the MVGlobal and Holi events. Thank you to the other parents who helped organize the Holi experience for our Lower and Preschool students!
