CHOCOLATE DAY

The 2018 chocolate is an initiative taken by the staff and children of Dolly Memorial school to highlight the nutritional benefits of cocoa. The day is marked as a way of sharing with friends. Children in their red and brown T-shirts expressed their love to each other by giving out any of the cocoa products displayed in the school. As part of the program the school also prepared some cocoa drinks for parents to enjoy before leaving the school premises.

A teacher from each department briefed the children on the history of cocoa using samples of the displayed products. The children were excited and made to understand that every Valentine day is a time to share with everyone.

This is celebrated annually. All pupils come in dressed to match their respective dream professions; e.g. Engineers, Businessmen/women, Doctors, Technicians, Lawyers, Carpenters, Teachers, Pilots, Servicemen/women, Nurses, etc.
