The theme for World Book Day 2023 is 'Indigenous Languages.' It focuses on promoting the diversity in native languages of a country. Keeping the theme in mind GISK learners were involved in various classroom activities. It includes creating their own library, reading on daily basis to gain knowledge, bookmark making, to do research on the various languages in India and the books published. The learners were given the information about copyrights. All the activities will surely help the GISK learners to shape their future.
