17th October 2017 pronounced splendour and jollity on the part of Army Public School Barrackpore with the premises being illuminated by the enthusiasm of the Carnival that comprised an exhibition, food festival, layout of artefacts created by the learners in their hobby classes. With the Golden Ages of the Gupta period being the leitmotif of the Exhibition, it created a platform for re-living the past by exploring the aura of the Golden Age- its origin, rise and fall and the achievements of the era in Education, Social Life, Science and Maths, Art and Architecture, Literature et al. The Exhibition also witnessed a display of the couture of the era in the mode of a fashion show that earned plaudits of one and all. The budding entrepreneurs of Class XI hosted cuisine that flattered the taste buds of the visitors. The beautiful artefacts created by the young artists and sculptors under the able guidance of the faculty--diyas, candles, paintings, holstery items, etc. Carnival’2017 held a mirror to the entrepreneurship skills and 21st Century learning skills quintessential for the young torch bearers and the humble effort of APS Barrackpore community in this context.
