‘No matter who you are or what you do, your manners will have a direct impact on your professional and social success’.
To implement school etiquettes and values, a special assembly was conducted at Udgam School for Children for class X. In our Life skills and Value education sessions we always impart moral and value base education to our students. We aim for the holistic development of our children.
The assembly was conducted in a unique manner, highlighting the need to inculcate right behaviour at school and inside the classrooms. Students exhibited their learnings in form of a live demonstration for a better understanding. We touched areas specifying the right conduct of students in assembly area, at staffroom, inside the classrooms and while passing through corridors. ‘Bullying’ in class was another sensitive topic that was explored.
Adding emphasis on the value of ‘Planning’ and ‘Prioritising’, 40-mins Chart making activity based on time management was conducted in groups in their Life skills class where they were conditioned to complete the activity within a stipulated time period, and were ranked on the basis of timely submission and team work.
It is important to remember that ethics and time management are significant skills which once mastered will make us more organised, efficient and happier.
Apurv Kharidia was a bright and meritorious student of Class XII. He was struck by cancer at the prime of his youth and succumbed to the disease on 7th July, 2017.

“The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those watch then without doing anything.”
The moment we start avoiding the individual differences of our children, we start encouraging ‘Bullying’ in larger proportions. Each child is different with his flaws and strength. It’s very important for educators and parents to make them realise how important it is to respect each other, irrespective of all variations.
According to IMRB, a top marketing research company of India, every third child is bullied in school. It is embarrassing and humiliating for a child who is being bullied, which can demoralize him/her. At Udgam School, we took a strong stand today, to make our school, a Bully – Free Zone! After analysing all the repercussions of Bullying, we pledge to provide every kind of support and facility to all our students. A bully needs special attention and care too, which if addressed on time can eliminate the long term negative results. A strong message was delivered that Bullying should never be tolerated. Students must take a strong stand to help each other in curtailing bullying situations. We Udgamites took a Vow that our hands will never hit a person and so will our words. We will use them in helping each other!
The students of Class II a presented a musical drama on ‘Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs’ in their class assembly with the underlined message that, true beauty comes from within. It also sensitised the children that one should be wary about taking things or talking to strangers. Moreover, we as human beings should appeal to the goodness in everyone. The audience enjoyed the musical drama which was confidently put up by students of class II A.
The Udgam School Proactivity Club Before School and After School Activities began from 5th July in the Thaltej campus. Students can learn a variety of activities from the best coaches in a safe and conducive environment. The canteen facility along with the transport arrangements made by the school make these programs very convenient even for parents, especially for those who are working. These activities also help to reduce absenteeism in children as they do not wish to miss their favourite activities. A few seats are still open. Hurry and enrol today. Here are a few glimpses of the activities.
There is a wide variety of plants on earth and numerous types of leaves. We are often fascinated by the different shapes of leaves that we see around us. Students of Class 3 had an activity in which they cut and pasted leaves in shapes of animals who live on trees. Yes, the idea is amazing and the work was totally out of the box too.
Food is fun both to cook and eat. The world would be very boring without the wide variety of food we have. We often look up new recipes and try out new dishes. With this idea in mind the students of Class V had a delightful Recipe Book making session in which they compiled mouth watering recipes from near and far.
Are we surprised that their Recipe Book is named MOUTH Watering?!
