Jarul book awards jury

Our learners of Grades III to V were a part of a jury for The Jarul Book Award: Indian Picture Books organized by American School of Bombay, Ascend International School and Don Bosco International School. This award is designed to promote Indian Literature and honour the best in children’s picture books.

The learners had to read 3 nominated books from the Learner Resource Centre and had to vote for their favourite book. The book with the highest votes was then declared as the winner of the the Jarul Book award. Along with our school, there were 25 other schools all over Mumbai who participated in the same. The winning author and illustrator were Nalini Sorensen and Prashant Soni who bagged the award for their book “Papa’s Marathon.”

Our learners attended the awards ceremony at the American School of Bombay. It was truly a novel experience for our learners who voted and attended the awards ceremony. They also interacted with the author – Nalini Sorensen and shared their appreciation and praise for her book.
