Value lessons keep kids busy at home

Students of Akshar School offered their tribute to Rabindranath Tagore on the bard’s 160th birth anniversary with enthusiasm and joy. It was an online endeavour where everyone was united in spirit.

Students of classes I to VI celebrated Tagore Week. It was an enlightening period wherein the children spoke about the bard’s life, recited his poems, narrated stories, sang songs, danced, played instruments and made beautiful paintings and informative PowerPoint presentations on Tagore’s child characters.

“Rabindra Jayanti was celebrated with fervour by children and teachers alike. In fact, the teachers have adapted Birpurush, the poem by Tagore into a skit for the prize distribution day which seems to be a very apt choice at these times,” said principal Kavneet Khullar.

Junior students of Shri Shikshayatan School recently celebrated Mother’s Day, virtually. Children of LKG to Class II met online to share with their classmates titbits about their mothers and what made them special. Every class did something special to entertain their mothers. From card-making, sharing family photographs to twinning the children and their mothers made the best of the home-bound celebrations. The enthusiastic children of Class II prepared non-flame dishes such as cold coffee, salads and sandwiches for their moms. Beautiful handmade cards came along with the treat.

“I feel every day is Mother’s Day. However, one occasion earmarked to celebrate motherhood has its own importance. Children have grown to appreciate the selfless effort of their mothers, especially during the new normal. One can never repay what a mother does for her child. However, a smile, hug and thank you from children do make mothers feel loved and appreciated,” said principal Sangeeta Tandon.

“During the pandemic, mothers are playing a major role to help their wards sail through all the adversities and crises. Her responsibilities have multiplied now. We are grateful to them and salute all mothers,” said the Shikshayatan Foundation’s secretary-general Bratati Bhattacharyya.

Birla High School, Mukundapur, recently organised the annual day and prize distribution ceremony on a virtual platform with video presentations, compiling cultural performances by students and celebrating their various achievements in the online classes. The school report shared in the presentations highlighted the extra-curricular activities conducted virtually, the role of the teachers and students in the paradigm shift — from brick and mortar to virtual class.

For the prize distribution ceremony, the school celebrated the performance of the students in online classes under different parameters such as being alert and responsive during online classes, good conduct, immaculate presentation of work and innovative thinking. “The Annual Day and Prize Distribution Ceremony is a much-awaited event in the school calendar and students look forward to being felicitated for the good work they have done throughout the year. Since the academic session 2020-21 was so different from our previous sessions, we decided to change our prize categories in order to reward students for their adaptability to the online mode of the teaching and learning process,” said principal Minnie Sengupta.
