On the Peace Mission across the globe, the delegates from Japan placed a Pillar Of Peace in the school premises and requested all to participate in the oath-making ceremony. Everybody declared in resounding volume- " May Peace Prevail On Earth " and we really wish, peace becomes a way of life, everywhere from now on. The interaction emphasized on the futility of disharmony and destruction. It was really a refreshing moment for all.

And in the afternoon hours, the school was mesmerized by the ecstatic kathakali performance by none other than Padmashree Awardee Kalamandalam Gopiji. The vivid colours of the dance attire added stars to the performance. His hand movements and elaborate gestures made all visualize and actualize the joy of dance and music. It was all in the moment, very enthralling. We really wish that we get to witness the maestro at his best again...

Hoping to have more days of such kind in our school...

Annual Day Celebrations 2009

Dear all

We are back to the pavilion! We hope that you all had a blast(not in terms of crackers!) this festive season.And now, we wish to scribble in the school's diary i.e. on the blog again! Through this post, we intend to acknowledge the magnificent efforts put in by everybody towards making the celebration of Annual Day 2009 truly successful. Events like this cannot happen overnight. Wheels start rolling weeks ago. It takes perseverance and a bird's eye for details.

Scheduled for October 15th, the function commenced at about 5:30 in the evening with a bang. Sh. A.S.Gill, Director General CRPF obliged to be the Chief Guest for the event while Mrs. Manjeet Gill, President CWWA, was the Guest of Honour. Former DGs were also cordially invited to grace the evening with their valuable presence. After a brief conversation with the school's prefectorial board, the guests proceeded to attend the main event.

The beginning of the function was marked by lighting of the lamp ceremony. Then came the choir group in its full glory to sizzle the stage. It was followed by a mesmerizing performance by the very talented instrumentalists of the school. Then the stage was flooded with the tiny tots beautifully performing in their ballet. The audience witnessed a scintillating act on the theme Natural Resources: A mission with a vision and was provoked to think about the plight of depleting natural resources and the uncertainties that our future holds for us.

After the junior ballet, the school presented the guests with saplings as a token of love for them. Then, Principal sir delivered his final speech as the school's head. He had a lot to say to his successors. His words of appreciation and inspiration left everybody brimming with emotions. He, then invited the school's Head Boy and the Head Girl to read out the school's Annual Report. Click here to see the report. Then the Guest of Honour was requested to release this year's edition of the school's magazine Srijun. Prizes were given away to the outstanding student achievers for the session 2008-09. The Vote of Thanks was proposed by the school's Head Girl.

Then came the turn of Senior Ballet- Rashmirathi Karna. Children were all geared up to give it their best shots. The act was based on a very relevant theme. It indirectly addressed the youth of today which feels paralyzed by some invisible factors to realize their full potential. Also, on the auspicious occasion of Diwali, the Head Boy and the Head Girl urged the assemblage to observe a Green Diwali this year and in the years to come to live in harmony with nature. The National Anthem was sung by all to mark an end to the Annual Day's celebrations.

We have just words of praise for all. Everybody was compelled to come out of their comfort zones to accomplish the various tasks assigned. Like everything else, it had to come to an end. Events like this give children a great platform to showcase their talents. We are very optimistic for the celebrations next year. It gets better with each passing year, and that's a great sign ! Watch out for the photographs here.

Dear all

The festival of Diwali, the festival of lights has finally arrived. And hence, first and foremost, we wish you all a very, very Happy Diwali. May this Diwali bring lots and lots of happiness to all of you. May this Diwali be the most sparkling and lightening.The sights and sounds filling up your heart with joy and happiness.Let this Diwali burn all your bad times and enter you in good times.
Diwali is a significant festival in Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism, and an official holiday in India. Adherents of these religions light diyas to signify victory of good over the evil within an individual. Diwali is the abbreviation of the Sanskrit word "Deepavali". Deepa meaning light and Avali, meaning a row. It means a row of lights and indeed illumination forms its main attraction.

The story behind Diwali varies from region to region, several significant events associated with it are Return of Rama to Ayodhya and The Killing of Narakasura. Diwali celebrations are spread over five days in India and all over the world. All the days except Diwali are named according to their designation in the Hindu calendar.

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning is "the awareness of the inner light".Many Diwali festivals have come and gone. Yet the hearts of the vast majority are as dark as the night of the new moon. The house is lit with lamps, but the heart is full of the darkness of ignorance.The sun does not shine there, nor do the moon and the stars, nor do lightning shine? All the lights of the world cannot be compared even to a ray of the inner light of the Self. Merge yourself in this light of lights and enjoy the supreme Diwali.

And on this auspicious occasion, E-club urges you all to celebrate a Green Diwali. In the simplest terms, we mean to say, DO NOT burn crackers. By doing so, you are actually saying NO to noise and air pollution and YES to Life! Many of the E-members are also strongly recommending a Diwali which is free from the cacophony of crackers and full of happiness and joy, through their blogs. Sensitize yourself and others towards this noble cause of celebrating Diwali in harmony with nature. That's all we got to put in words. Click here to know more...

Once again, Have a Very Happy, Safe and Green Diwali.

Teachers Turned Students !

Dear all

Today, on 3 October 2009, a workshop for teachers was organized in our School. Eminent educationists and teachers' trainers Prof. B. L. Handoo and Dr. Subhash Arora graced the session and shared some rare teaching methodologies with our teachers.
Prof. B. L. Handoo and Dr. Subhash Arora

"Capacity and competency building of teachers" was how it was tagged. About 40 teachers enthusiastically attended it to hone their teaching skills.Someone put it right-"Who dares to teach must never cease to learn..." and hence, it ought to be a great learning experience for all the teachers. It was a unique opportunity for all the teachers present to update and upgrade themselves for the sake of their students. The workshop was a real encouragement to move forward...take a leave from the traditional methodology of chalk and talk. Anecdotes and stories helped a lot.

The interactive environment helped to discuss and eventually discover the solutions for the problems put up by the teachers. Every teacher (who became a student there!) was given chance to express and share his/her views.

The trainers discussed about emotional quotient (E. Q.), learning styles, basic skills of teaching, effective teaching tips, and 7 C's of the teaching-learning process as Communication, Content, Confidence, Clarity, Coherence, Computer literacy and Continuous updating.

They also told about the sources available such as websites and books one must read in this ever lasting process of attaining another level of greatness.

Following are some golden words which made the day all the more lovely :

* The mediocre teacher tells, Good teacher explains, The superior teacher demonstrates, The great teacher inspires.
* Good teachers have good sense of humor, have a command of the content they teach , set high expectations for their students and hold the students to those expectations, are good managers of time, can lead or follow, as the situation demands, don't take things as granted.
* You learn to teach by teaching, by making mistakes, learning from them and improving.
* "When my attitudes are right, there's no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me."

And these are some of the expected qualities in a teacher : Creativity, Flexibility,Confidence,Patience,True compassion for their students, Understanding,The ability to look at life in a different way and to explain a topic in a different way,Dedication to excellence, Willingness to help student achieve,Pride in student’s accomplishments, Passion for life, Open to Change and finally a Good Sense of Humour.

We are really thankful to Prof. B. L. Handoo and Dr. Subhash Arora for their inspiring words.We hope to have them amongst us yet again as each moment spent in their company had something to teach us...

Dear all

"A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people."

Today is the 140th Birth Anniversary of the apostle of peace and the father of the nation, none other than Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or just 'Baapu'. Born on 2 October 1869 at Porbandar in Gujarat, Gandhi was the pre-eminent political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of satyagraha-resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, firmly founded upon ahimsa or total non-violence.

He summed up the entire philosophy of his life as: "The only virtue I want to claim is truth and non-violence. I lay no claim to super human powers: I want none".He is officially honoured in India as the Father of the Nation; his birthday is commemorated as Gandhi Jayanti, and worldwide as the International Day of Non-Violence.

He taught us a lot, and will continue to do so till the eternity. His words and his thoughts will live on forever with us. We need to reaffirm his ideals in today's world and hence witness the magic ...
