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.
When Missions Meet!
August 01 2018
The first House-Meet of the month was a true meeting of the minds, with students and facilitators of different houses coming together to plan to make the most of the events and opportunities lined up for them in the month of August.
With the Inter-House Book-mark Making and Inter-House Gymnastics Competition lined up for the Grades I & II, the Inter-House Mads Ads Competition scheduled for Grades III to V, as well as the Inter-House Karate and Debate Competitions planned for the secondary and senior secondary students across the weeks, planning and preparation for these competitions was definitely high on the agenda. House-spirit was definitely in the air, with many houses felicitating their new captains and deputies.
Shades of Yellow!
July 26 2018
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.
Singing for Unity!
July 20 2018
The Primary Wing at DRS International School recently conducted an Inter-House Group Singing Competition on the 20th of July, 2018 that saw students from Grades I to V team up to express their respect for the nation’s journey of independence through singing, in anticipation of the Independence Day Celebrations. Students put up impressive vocal performances that showcased their passion for music and their flair for pitch, rhythm and expression. While students of Tesla House sang ‘Khuli Khuli in Aankho mein se’, Newton House chose to sing ‘Hum Bache Hindustan Ke’. Galileo House had the audience sway to ’Hum Sab Bharatiya Hey ’ even as Da Vinci House sang a song about the nation’s development. The competition succeeded in encouraging our students to work together and harness music’s ability to unite people.
