Bharatnatyam

Independence Day

Here at PH the children take part in festivals like the Rakhi festival where girls tie rakhis to the boys, Diwali where they play with crackers, and Independence day where we celebrate India.

Bharatnatyam is a popular Indian Classical Dance, it requires a lot of practice to attain perfection.

Music is taught to the elder children of the PH some learn guitar while the others keyboard, at present there are three girls learning keyboard while two boys are learning guitar.

Children enjoy watching cartoons, good movies are shown on a Sunday, through the week children enjoy other programmes on the T.V.

Once a week the children go out to a park in the town where they get a chance to run around and play with other children.
