The motive of this book fair was to inculcate reading as a habit among students as well as to encourage teachers’ research related work, besides making quality books easily available within Sapphire premises. The fair attracted Scholastic India Pvt. Ltd. National Book Trust, India, and Parragon Publishing in collaboration with Crosswords (A renowned Book Shop of Ranchi City).
Books are a mirror of one’s soul; they enrich the mind and soothe the heart. Sapphire International School organized a Three Day ‘Book Fair’ from 17th August, 2017 to 19th August, 2017. The motive was quite apparent, in that SIS, Ranchi, believes in providing its students with holistic and informative literature to enrich their vocabulary and diction.
The children enjoyed the fair and picked books varying from history to science; from puzzles to poems and from fiction to facts. The children openly expressed the wish that the fair should last for a longer time as it would give them an opportunity to read and access more informative literature besides their well-stocked school library.
Further, teachers of SIS also recommended quality books for the SIS library to build a superb collection in all subjects, from history to technology, fiction to facts.
We can genuinely claim that the book fair was eminently successful at SIS Ranchi: we hope to repeat this kind of events to generate love of books among students.
