Prize distribution was followed after a cultural program of plays written by Henry performed for the whole school, staff of SEDS and parents who attended.
Finally, at the end of the program we had a surprise box event for the children. Euro SEDS from Germany sponsored this event. The children were each given a packet of Boost, a chocolate milk drink and a toy. The toys were cars, Rubik cubes, for the boys and kitchen sets, toy cell phones and Rubik cubes for the girls. There were also a few other gifts that were donated by individual people from Bangalore.
As the children were on their way home after the day of sports, they spent some time opening presents and snacking on a packet of puffed rice. Ananda Vidyalayam would like to say thank you to Euro SEDS the sponsors of the surprise box !
