Thursday Assembly: The Giving Tree

26 Apr 2018

Class IV-G recited and enacted a poem called 'The Giving Tree' by Shel Silverstein.  'The Giving Tree' is a beautiful poem about a boy and a tree. As a child, the boy played on the tree's branches and ate her apples but then he grew up and only came back when he needed something like her branches to build a house.And the tree happily gave until she had nothing left to give but a stump for him to rest his weary old bones on. IV-G did a choral recitation involving the whole class. A girl dressed in green symbolised the tree while four children represented the boy through the ages. Two children then spoke in Urdu about the joys of giving selflessly.
