Parents applaud Gurgaon School for imaginative summer camp
It is the peak of summers and parents in Gurgaon are looking for avenues to engage their kids in one activity or another during the summer vacations. Believing in a new way of education, Kunskapsskolan School of Gurgaon organised their first summer camp and was applauded by the parents for their creativity, imagination and unique workshops.

The 2 week event, which was filled with Art and sculpture, ballet and Robotics workshops came to an end with the exhibition of the work of the students at the Knowledge Centre on 2 June 2014. The exhibition, which showcased works of the students was inaugurated by Padmashree Keshav Mallik. He appreciated the artworks and the different mediums used by participants. In his address speech, he emphasized on the need for all schools to give equal opportunity to students to be creative and explore different forms of Art.

Mediums such as clay, paper mache, water colours, plaster of paris and waste paper were used by children as young as 7 years to give form to their imagination. During the address speech, a girl said that she couldn't believe that she could spend so much time and ruin so many clothes and learn so much in just 10 days. While the children were having a good time at the event, the parents were beaming with pride and looking around in wonder at the creation of their little kids.

Swarnamoyee Chatterjee, mother of Aarush said, ''we are thrilled and amazed to see that my son has done these things. I was just looking at what he has created and was thinking, how did he managed to do it?! It is a really good utilization of time and more importantly, he had such fun. Although the time was short and we would have loved for the camp to continue, but the experience was great.'' Another parent, Megha Srivastav also added, ''The summer camp was wonderful. Kunskapsskolan has a unique curriculum. It is very broad spaced and since children all over the world are here, my son gets a lot of exposure.''

Children as young as two and a half years till fourteen were a part of the camp. The participants spent three hours each day developing their skills in various workshops and enjoyed being a part of the camp. The little ballerinas learn the basics of Contemporary Jazz and Ballet during the Ballet Workshop. Parents were delighted and overwhelmed to see them perform at the end of the workshop with their instructors.

The Robotics Workshop was equally fascinating for the young minds with the students programming and creating robots which were at their wish and command.

In the Creative Art Workshop the students of all age groups let their imagination soar and created their own master pieces of art by exploring various mediums like water colours, oil pastels, charcoal, ink, clay, paper mache, plaster of paris and waste material. The participants created murals, paintings, sculptures and clay stamps.
