Saluting the Spirit of Freedom

Saluting the Spirit of Freedom

The Republic Day celebration showcases the spirit of patriotism and pride that every Indian feels for their country. Our national flag was hoisted by the Principal. The children and the teachers rendered a Bharatiyar song followed by a dance that perfectly captured not only the geographical diversity of India, but also the unity in our diversity. Speeches were delivered in Tamil, Hindi, Sanskrit and English, with the same inspiring message of national integration.

Pongal O Pongal!

Pongal O Pongal!

January 18, 2018

The festivities for the day began with an informative play performed by the enthusiastic 6th and 7th graders on why we celebrate Pongal. The singers of our school lifted our spirits with an upbeat folk song followed by our dancers who set the floor on fire with their performance. The excitement on everyone’s faces turned to sheer wonder at the sight of the beautiful cow and her calf. As the pongal started to spill over the pot, thrilled whoops of exhilaration echoed throughout the school. Our Principal and teachers performed the customary rites with the aid of the priest to invoke blessings at this auspicious time. Overall, it was an enrapturing and delightful day.

The skit performed during Pongal celebrations was based on sharing the significance of celebrating the festival, with a foreigner on a visit to India. The highlight of the program was cooking pongal in a mud pot and performing pooja for the cow and calf as part of “Mattu Pongal”. When the pongal boiled over, we all shouted “pongalo pongal”. At the end of the day we got to taste juicy sugarcane.

December 14, 2017

Pradarshan, the grade XII talent show proved to be a welcome change from the pressure and stress of exams and boards. Every student got an opportunity to be on stage and showcase their talents in front of their parents, teachers and friends. The show began with an invocation song and dance, followed by a speech by the Principal. The highlights of the evening were the play ‘Dialogues in the Dark’, conceived, written and directed by the students themselves, the fusion dance and music and a comical skit ‘Ghost Therapy’.  Pradarshan is proof that every student has multifarious talents and this was a day which would remain in our memory to cherish forever.

Celebrating Akkas and Annas day has been a tradition in our school for long. It is a day when the school appreciates the exceptional job done by the Akkas and Annas throughout the year.  Various entertainment programs were organised for them and they got an opportunity to get on the stage to display their talents. As a token of our appreciation, this year too gifts were bought for them and the students organised a pot-luck and invited them to their classrooms to share a meal with them.

 

Segregate your Waste

Segregate your Waste

The students of grade VII Vairam are involved in educating the community on waste management. As a part of this initiative, we had an interactive session with the Ayyamas of our school to give them an overview on how to manage and segregate our waste. The ayyamas shared some of the practical difficulties they face while segregating the waste. We also got an opportunity to campaign at the residential complexes in Karpagam gardens, Adyar on the importance of a clean, healthy and waste-free environment.

Grow Green

Grow Green

The global citizenship programme assigned to the students of grade VIII Muthu is all about promoting healthy eating. Everybody eats vegetables regularly, but no one seems to know where they come from or in what conditions they have been cultivated. We are popularising the concept of organic fruits and vegetables to ensure a healthy living. The students of the class procured organic vegetables directly from a farmer and sell it to the staff of our school. This not only teaches us the importance of healthy eating but also we have the opportunity to plan the purchase from the farmer, organize the sale to the teachers and keep track of the accounts from the sale. We have also started an in house farming project as an extension of our GC topic.

Catch Water, It’s Free!

The students of grade VI Suryagandhi, VII Manickam and X Desh visited the Akash Ganga Trust, Rain Center in Chennai, run by Dr. Shekhar Raghavan. He has initiated a door-to-door campaign in Chennai to create an awareness on the importance of rainwater harvesting. At his centre, we learned about rooftop harvesting, filtering rain water, recharging and servicing wells and gutters. We were informed about the traditional rainwater harvesting structures in Rajasthan called kunds and its method of functioning.

Thinking Green..

Thinking Green..

Students of VI Sembaruthi made their own roller-type composting bin. They made a prototype which was translated into a working model with the help of Mr.Kalyanasundaram, workshop instructor at the Annamalai Polytechnic. Their bin is now operational in the school campus.

Students of grade VII Maragadam are working on creating a composting manual for spreading awareness on this topic. To further their learning, the students of VI Sembaruthi and VII Maragadam visited Brownstone apartments to learn first-hand about community composting. They learnt how waste was segregated and put into four large compost bins to turn into manure. The students were excited to feel the texture of the compost.
