On 19 of
System Middle Branch held a spring carnival. It was actually held so that the school could earn money for charity. Everyone participated enthusiastically. People and students enjoyed a lot. Every stall had games and food. There were a lot of activities and I was overjoyed when I saw that the school had maintained it very well and the best part was nobody was pressurized to buy or play games. No one complained about any thing where as everyone said it was awesome. In the end we would like to quote a famous saying that is “hard work is never wasted where as it as well gives a lesson and an experience too”. The bottom line is that the entire school worked really hard and the result came as a mind blowing one but because nothing is perfect except God, we hope that in the next event the lacking would be surely over comed.
