Socrates, the great Greek philosopher had said, “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.” This inspirational thought guides our efforts at school where we seek to nurture independent, thinking minds.

A critical-thinking exercise ‘The Mock Caldecott Awards Activity’! organized for the children of Grade 5, was a part of this effort.
