While it is alright to give in to these cravings once in a while, what one needs to remember is that having fruits is what will keep you healthy and hydrated during this season.

At NVPS, our esteemed Principal Ma’am inspired us to organize Summer Fruit Festival. The festival was a four-day celebration where a different summer fruit was relished each day. Activities like ‘Ambrosial Watermelon’, ‘Perks of Muskmelon’, ‘Lip Smacking Mojito’ and ‘Beat the heat with Mango Treat’ etc. were conducted and the students participated enthusiastically. They were made aware of the importance of these fruits in our life. Our tiny tots used seeds of muskmelon and watermelon to make dazzling and splendid cards. Students made heavenly and scrumptious mojitos. In wholesome the festival was full of retrieving hands-on activities and lip-smacking fruit dishes.

As it is believed -

"You can never be melon-choly in the summertime."
