WINTER WONDERLAND :
NLK Academy organized Winter Wonderland this December! A lot of preparations and hard labour went into making the Winter Wonderland a successful event. This rock out event was filled with so much fun, thrill and entertainment. Students rolled out with fun and enjoyed their day with so much enthusiasm and fervor. From selfie corners, dance competition, tattoo station, pottery, puppet show to Charlie Chaplin, snake and ladder, bouncy, trampoline and so much more, it was a day well spent.
It was a great occasion for parents and students to have fun with their family and friends. It is indeed a great occasion for all to get together and enjoy.
We had eight game stalls and ten food stalls. The junior and senior students were divided into groups and deployed at each stall in such an organized manner that they not only got an opportunity to shoulder the responsibility of the stall but also got time to visit other stalls and enjoy the event along with their friends. Amongst the games stalls, the most popular ones were Gun shooting, Fortune Wheel, Ring toss etc. However the greatest attraction was The Puppet Show that collected so many people around while the puppets were dancing.
A large variety of fast food items were served at the various food stalls. The best part of these food stalls was that the prices were kept quite reasonable as compared to the market prices. There was a perpetual rush at the ‘Chaat’ stall, the ‘Momo's’ stall and the ‘Pizza’ stall. Non-vegetarian items were not served. The tea and the cold drink stalls also turned out to be a huge favorite. As the evening progressed and the chill increased, everybody wanted to grab a tea. Hats off to our dedicated team of teachers and the able guidance of our Principal.
