Festival for children with disabilities ends at Bishop Cotton School in Shimla
Over 150 children with disabilities from across Himachal Pradesh celebrated the '18th Festival Of Differently Abled', at the Bishop Cotton School in Shimla.
There were many activities like cultural shows, march past, sports events to a special fair. Other activities were ringing the bell, animal races, skittles and lucky dip.
The activities were planned so that all the children can participate in a stress-free and non-competitive atmosphere.
The learning centre of Bishop Cotton School offers a complete program on functional academics, social skills, activities of daily living, and pre-vocational skills to help children with disabilities.
The idea is to encourage the children and make them feel accepted, aware and confident.
The festival was started in 2000.
