The second part of the day’s activities comprised of a game where the kids had to carry a lemon balanced on a spoon while joining in a race against one another. As is usual at Parivartan, these kinds of games are more about learning and developing oneself, rather than simply being about enjoyment.

The day’s events drew to a close with the distribution of Cremica biscuits and Melody toffees, before the children proceeded homeward.
