The students, teachers and staff were divided into various groups to enjoy in their own ways.The students roam all over the park - some enjoyed cycling, boat-riding and other rides while some others were busy with their cameras. The staff and most of the teachers gathered inside the hall.
There were arrangements of various games for children, students, teachers and staff. The authority arranged games like chocolate race for children, sack race, 'hari-bhanga' (breaking of pitchers), treasure-hunt and so on. The audience cheered while some of the participants in the games won first, second and third prizes.
The delicious lunch was served at about 2:30pm. After lunch, all enjoyed some performances on the stage by teachers, students and children.This was followed by one of the most attractive events of that day: pillow-passing. The last segment was the most awaited one: prize-giving ceremony and raffle draw.

First, second and third prizes were given away for every game. All the children who participated in the game were given complementary prizes. Teachers, guests, students and staff eagerly awaited for the announcement of the lucky numbers in the raffle draw.
