Our School registered for the prestigious International School Award (ISA) with the aim of providing broader array of cultural representation and introducing an International dimension to our Teaching learning Process. As a part of this project Pulsating Pulses a collaborative activity was taken up by the students of classes VI to VII to mark the International Year of Pulses 2016. The Objective was to encourage students to explore about food security with respect to the use of pulses in India, Australia, Kenya, UK, Sri lanka and generating awareness about their nutritional benefits. One of the activities as a part of this project was EK MUTHI DAAL wherein students of all classes of school showed their enthusiasm by bringing in a fistful of pulse of their choice. The pulses thus collected were packaged by the children and distributed among the support/ ancillary staff of the school on 2 Aug 2016 in the school premises.
Our collaborative project - Mystifying Myths - has been successfully completed! The project began with a session in which the students, after viewing an introductory PPT, shared the common myths prevalent in their families. Thereafter, an internet based research by them proved to be an eye-opener as it led to the discovery of the scientific reasons behind many beliefs. The students also conducted a survey across different sections of the society to determine the percentage of believers & non-believers. The project witnessed a very interesting & innovative culmination in the morning assembly, in the form of a LIVE MOCK SHOW, in which the students, posing as journalists, questioned along with other students, the Principal of the school, about her belief in certain common myths prevalent in the society. They also shared their learning in the course of the project with other school students.
As a part of the ISA Activity Taare Zameen Par students of the middle Segment participated in a programme in the morning assembly on 18 January 2017. They acted as specially abled children to sensitize everyone about the challenges faced by these children. To generate awareness, different fun activities like racing, painting, dumb charades were held in the school. The activity helped in changing the perspective of students towards specially abled children. It concluded with a prayer of gratitude to the Almighty.
