Subject teachers along with some students of class VII had shaped a suitable atmosphere with well planned

decoration and seating arrangement so to motivate as well as to make them feel the significance of the program. Some video songs with the theme and message of importance of reading in one’s life have been arranged and shown at the last ten minutes of each period for every class and they loved it.
