The Celebrate Bandra festival, which began on November 12 and will end on November 27, has a special set of events that cater to students. “Children are the future of our locality and the country, so when we plan such things for ourselves, we should also include them in the celebrations. This kind of programme creates a sense of community and helps people from the city interact with each other,” said Vibha Kamat, a volunteer.
Children’s Treasure Hunt
The theme for this treasure hunt is ‘Wandering through books’. Designed by Charles D’Souza, a library software consultant, the treasure hunt will involve sifting through books placed all around the MCUBED library, where the event will be held. Each child will be given a questionnaire with a set of clues, which will help participants through the library.
What’s the Good Word?
