Upcycling Ideas!

Date:

Aug 08 2018

Description:

The first club meet of August inspired our students with interesting challenges and projects that got their creative juices flowing. The MUN Club had quite a happening meet with each member contributing to the preparations of DRSMUN2018, as well as exploring the basics of writing position papers. The Cuisine Club put together delicious and appetizing caramel popcorn, while the Visual Arts Club worked on creative and colourful masks.

Meanwhile, other clubs too made the most of the meet. The members of the Design & Technology Club worked on creating and editing videos for Independence Day, even as members of the Humane Club created table-mats with collages of news and updates from the tech-world, for a noble cause. The Eco-sustainability Club made eco-friendly bags by reusing and ‘upcycling’ old t-shirts.

Shades of Yellow!

Date

July 26 2018

Description

Every color has it importance, and our facilitators of the International kindergarten encourage children to appreciate each color in new ways. On the  26th of July, our budding inquirers of the International Kindergarten celebrated Yellow Day with a colourful, day-long celebration.

Yellow is a colour that symbolizes joy and intellectual energy. Our little ones embodied this spirit of energy and exuberance when they took to the stage for their performances. The children of IK I danced joyfully to the music of the ‘Roly Poly’ rhyme, while the kids of IK II wowed everyone with their fun rendition of the  ‘Gummy Bears Dance’. Last but not the least, our tiny tots of IK III danced for ‘Clap your Hands’ and ‘Baby Shark’.

Our students also developed their fine motor skills with preparing their take-aways. IK I students created the ‘Welcome Smiley Emoji’ , while our tots of IK II crafted a yellow, ‘Giraffe’. Not to be outdone, our creative little ones of IK III also showed us their creative side by making yellow chicks and ducks.

Galileo House had the audience sway to ’Hum Sab Bharatiya Hey ’ even as Da Vinci House sang a song about the nation’s development.

Residential Extempore Competition

Conquering Fear!

Date

April 22 2018

Description

There’s nothing like taking to the stage and addressing a gathering to conquer stage fear! Our residential students had an Extempore competition organized yesterday evening to boost their confidence and ability to communicate effectively. Students from classes VI-VIII and IX-XII were divided into two categories and given the choice of ten topics they could take up to present. The topics were entertaining and included offbeat topics such as ‘An upside down day’ and ‘Why walking is the best means of transportation’ and even thought-provoking ones such as ‘If I could design my classroom’. The competition saw every individual student participate and do their best by making an effort to articulate their ideas on the spot. After the event, the judges and students reflected on the students’ performance and ways they could empower themselves as good communicators.

Show and Tell

So much to ‘Show & Tell’!

Date

April 20 2018

Description

There’s nothing like a prop or an object to spark our little ones’ imagination- our students understand that objects have many stories to tell ! Our students of Grades I and II of the IB PYP were at eager communicators at the Inter-House Show & Tell Competition held recently. The competition was the first Inter-House competition of the academic year for the PYP and was certainly one of the most awaited ones. The Show & Tell Competition is a unique platform for our little ones to develop and showcase their skills as communicators- whether it is speaking or presenting, with clarity & confidence. Our students tapped into their love for their favourite objects, and brought along props such as small cars, dolls, globes etc that they found fascinating. The event inspired them to articulate their ideas and gave them the courage to overcome stage fear to take centre-stage. The competition left the audience spellbound by the talent and ability of the little ones.
