School fairs get a makeover with parents pitching in. A case in point: the air show at Lady Andal
After the recently-concluded carnivals of the American International School (during Pongal) and Don Bosco (January 26), it’s the turn of Lady Andal to put up their carnival best. The Moms Club of Lady Andal School is back for the task and their line up seems to be getting bigger and better. After dabbling with themes like Mamagascar and Angry Birds, this year they have chosen to ‘Go Green’. “We wanted to educate the kids on the importance of saving the earth and have roped in Atom Events, who will be decorating the whole place with recycled and reused items,” says Vandana Anand, the vice chaiperson of the Moms Club. The carnival, expected to draw around 2,000, takes place tomorrow at the school premises, and Anand promises that there’s a couple of first time events to look out for.
Taking to the air
The Moms Club have put together a planetarium that will be screening a 15-minute show about the galaxy. But if gazing at a bunch of stars does not seem too appealing, then perhaps watching remote controlled copters will. In a first, the carnival will feature a radiocontrolled air show courtesy city-based Barath Gupta and team. They will be putting up five shows every half hour, starting from 5.30 pm, and needless to say, this one will be a hit among the kids.
Don your apron
The club, together with food and beverage giant Nestle, will be conducting a cooking competition. Titled — yes, you guessed right — Masterchef, it is open to anyone above 13 years of age. Teams of two each will be chosen for a live cookoff that will require them to cook without fire. And for those who are happy to buy their food, we hear that Cookie Man and Spoonbill, will be setting up shop.
