The children were made to feel comfortable by creating a playful and friendly environment. The department decorated with balloons and ribbons.Music welcomed the little guests as they arrived. The program included free dental screening and treatment, which was followed by an entertainment session for the special guests of the occasion. They were made to sit in a group specially arranged for the occasion. The parents were made to occupy the seats to witness the program in a separate arrangement.
Children enjoyed the various games such as passing the parcel, musical chair and four corners. A drawing competition with a theme “My family” was held on this occasion. The faculty of the department selected two best drawings. The program ended with a cake cutting by children to commemorate the occasion. Refreshments, award for the winners and gifts were distributed among the children.
