Hindi- the soul of Indian culture. Hindi Sulekh activity was arranged for students of class II, commemorating Hindi Diwas. As a part of this activity, students had to write a small paragraph explaining the importance of hindi language. In a very simple way, students explained why every nation should its own language and the reason, why 14th September is celebrated as the Hindi Diwas. Students enjoyed writing about Hindi, in hindi.
“Values aren’t buses… They’re not supposed to get you anywhere. They’re supposed to define who you are.”
Keeping in mind the importance of value enhancement at an early stage in life, Udgam School for Children runs ‘Life Skills and Value Enhancement’ program through regular classes. Our teachers go through regular training workshops to conduct meaningful classes for students. Recently, two of our teachers took training of one such unique program called – ‘The Awakened Citizen Program’, developed by Ramkrishna Mission. Further, the same teachers of Middle section – Ms. Preeti Naik and M. Hinakumari Dholakia, conducted an in-house workshop for all the Middle Section teachers.
Ms. Naik and Ms. Dholakia briefed the teachers about the program details and how the program works, through a practical and an interactive hour-long session. We strongly believe that as teachers, we are the facilitators for making our children realise their inner potential and bring out their latent capabilities and guide them in their journey from ‘I can’t to I can’.
It was an enlightening and interesting session for all the participants. Teachers will be further conducting the same program with the students in class during the year.
As a part of the reading year for students of our primary section, a set of challenges were given to them. The ones who successfully completed the ‘Reading Challenges’ earned a badge from their teachers. To mark this achievement, a wall of fame is created in the premises of our school. Together with their teachers, our little readers beautified a big wall with their colourful palm prints,signing their names and also, wrote the name of their favourite books. Our talented teachers, transformed the cluster of palms into a wonderful tree. What a lovely way to create fond memories of school days!
Gratitude is a very important trait that needs to be expressed as much as it needs to be felt. To ensure that our students are thankful for those little joys in their life and acknowledge and appreciate everyone around them, an assembly ‘Gratitude be the attitude’ was organized for students of class 4. The participants expressed their gratitude for each person that they are close to, presented a skit on the theme and also sang a melodious song. Before returning to their classes, the students conveyed special messages personally to each teacher present, gifted them a token of gratitude and enjoyed a photography session with them. This pleasant assembly added a dose of sweetness to look forward to the rest of our day!
