UDGAM SCHOOL CHARITY FAIR

“To give is to receive’.
With this benevolent spirit of Christmas the students organised a Charity Fair on the school premises that enthralled all. In the canteen area the students of Class XI arranged a Food Fair with mouth watering delicacies on display. The enthusiasm with which they advertised the products and the superb service with a smile won hearts and emptied pockets of many. There were stalls selling cupcakes, mousse, brownies, pastries, basket chaats, pop corn and nachos. Each stall canvassed their products with signboards, a few human boards too, and jingles. Within no time the sumptuous spread was all gone…
A different kind of fair was going on in another area. The students of Classes VI to XI had on display different kinds of handiwork which they had made in their Art and Craft classes. The variety was amazing. This included quill products like bags, earrings, fridge magnets, car hangings, key chains, along with mats and placemats, cushions, wall hangings, flower pots, paintings, book marks, envelopes, soft toys, paper weights, gift tags, greeting cards, flower vase, stocking flowers, coconut shell painting, candle stands, bottle holders and many more. Even these handmade items sold out fast.
The money raised will be used for charity work. To make something painstakingly, advertise it so that others buy and then to give up the earned money to the needy is commendable indeed. 
We are proud of our students and our unique Udgam culture!

The season of gratitude

Being grateful does not require a particular season but Christmas is the time when we really like to convey our ‘thanks’ to those who matter. So often we miss out people from our list who actually make a difference in our lives and most of us are not even aware of it. They are our ayahs and peons. Today the children of Class VI conveyed their gratitude to these helpers who relentlessly work for us throughout the day. They gave greeting cards and sang carols. 
Let us also take time to express our gratitude to our helpers.

POETRY RECITATION IN CLASS VII

An Interclass Poetry Recitation Competition was held for students of Class VII. Three students from each division were selected after an audition round in the class. The participants recited the poems with ease and confidence. The choice of the poems ranged from the classics by Tennyson and Wordsworth to the contemporary by Maya Angelou. To make the event interactive and inclusive, the audience were teased with tongue twisters. The prize-winners were:

1. Vedant Mahapatra – VII G – 1st prize 
2. Adrija Banerjee – VII C – 1st prize
3. Manyaa Trivedi – VII D – 2nd prize
4. Aadit Kanuga – VII C – 3rd prize

OUT ON A PICNIC

Nothing is more thrilling to the tiny tots than a day out in the warm winter sun, frolicking with friends and teachers. Children of Playgroup, our youngest unit, were taken to Suramya VII for a picnic. They played on the slides, swings, see-saw, spinning wheel and many other equipment in the play area. Later on they lined up and sat down to enjoy a delicious meal. They came back tired but happy, chattering all the way.

MATHS WEEK AT UDGAM SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN

The birth anniversary of the great Indian Mathematician is celebrated every year as National Mathematics Day. In Udgam School December 16-22 was celebrated as Maths Week. Each and every section of the school was involved in activities to commemorate the subject that encompasses almost every sphere of life.
Primary School children were actively involved in activities. The younger ones solved puzzles and made shapes. The older children created three dimensional figures and tried out different activities in the Maths Lab.
Middle School students were involved in activities like ‘Find the perimeter’ of things in the classroom, presentations on great Mathematicians and chart making. The Maths Exhibition put up by the children of Class VII was excellent and appreciated by all. Even parents were all praise for the exhibition that was open to public.
Secondary School students also participated in many activities. Class 9 had a Origami activity in which they made colourful shapes using paper. Class 10 had a Quiz on Maths based on Algebra, Geometry, General mathematics and much more. The PowerPoint presentation for the quiz was put up on the smart board and students were asked to answer the questions after doing some basic calculations in their Trans book within the prescribed time limit. A coordinate geometry activity was conducted for Class X. 
They were asked to stand in form of X-axis and Y axis so that four quadrants can be formed. Few students were asked to stand in the various quadrants. They were asked to tell the coordinates where they are standing. The main objective was to have clear understanding about the plotting in the coordinate plane. Other group of students were asked to form various patterns like square, equilateral triangle with X-axis and Y-axis, rhombus and many more. Some students were asked to find the vertices of the various figures, made to calculate the areas and length of diagonals etc. The students practically got to know application of distance formula. 
Senior Secondary students also had several activities to commemorate the week. They were shown a documentary on Srinivasa Ramanujan. A Maths Quiz was conducted for them which was very challenging. A few students even penned poems on mathematical topics and recited in class. Not an easy feat at all to write poems on Maths.

iPad Movie Magic Workshop

In today’s time we may find iPad at everyone’s home. We all know that kids love using them but do they know how to use them to do more than watching movies and playing games? Parents are worried about their kid spending too much time on gadgets, staring at the iPad screen doing nothing but tap and swipe.

We would like students to think beyond playing games on iPad and learn more about healthy, safe and even educational ways to use iPads.

Udgam Pro Activity Club arranged iPad Movie Magic Workshop. 
In this workshop, students were taught to turn their home pictures into blockbusters, complete with Hollywood –style trailers, effects, soundtracks.
