The Brigade School @ JP Nagar – Nursery, LKG and UKG



Animal Welfare Advocate, Colleen Paige established National Pet Day in 2006 for her mission to shed light on the joy and happiness pets bring to their owner’s life. The need and care that many pets waiting in shelters need for their forever homes was discussed as well. The Brigade School celebrated Pet day on 5th July 2021 with our Nursery, LKG, and UKG students. It began with a brief introduction about domestic animals and a video in which the teachers familiarized their pets with the students.

The agenda for celebrating Pet Day was to spread awareness amongst children regarding animals and their habits, the love and care they need to be their best friend. To teach students a sense of responsibility and empathy towards other living beings was the schools main objective behind this programme. The pet animals shown were fish, dogs, cats, cows, and birds.

Food habits of pets and how they vary animal to animal was explained to the student. Student’s also learnt on how to take care of their pets. Children enjoyed listening to a bird (Cockatiel) whistling to the song ‘If you’re happy and you know it’. Students were shown the process of milking a cow. They watched with great excitement when animated songs about pets were played.

A few students joined in the fun by introducing their pets to the group and speaking about them. The others spoke about their favourite animal and showcased the stuffed toy they owned. Overall, the students were thoroughly delighted to be a part of the Pet Day programme.
