Interactive Session of Students of Class VIII with Mr. Christopher C. Doyle ,  Best-Selling Author of “The Mahabharata Quest” Series
 
Selected students of CLASS VIII enjoyed a wonderful interactive session with the popular author Christopher Doyle on Zoom, where he shared some fascinating insights into his intensive research into ancient mysteries, legends, secrets and prophesies. His books are largely imagination but underlying that is a solid framework of research and scientific knowledge, he said. He also answered a variety of questions posed by the students, ranging from what gives him his inspiration to write and how he handles writer’s block to the details of the mythologies and legends he has investigated. A very charismatic speaker, he held the large group of 70 plus participants enthralled. Though a new initiative, to do this interaction online, it was a great success, with many students later messaging their happiness at having been part of it.
 
 
Book Week Celebration from 04-08 May 2020
 

Reading is known to be a timeless form of entertainment and information. Books have the power to ignite our imagination, arouse curiosity and open our mind to new possibilities. We acknowledge the importance of reading by celebrating the ‘Book Week’. This year, the Book Week is being celebrated between 04 to 08 May,2020 and a veritable treasure trove of activities have been planned for all the students. Each class had a choice of two activities.

Malgudi Days’ is one of India’s classics and children of CLASS VI were asked to read it, describe some of their favourite episodes and also illustrate these.

They were also asked to create an Ode to any one member of their family, with some guidelines supplied for their help.

Students of CLASS VII listened to the story, Wingless, narrated by the author, Paro Anand. They then rewrote the story, added a title of their own and added a picture. They could also narrate the story and create a short video of it.

 Some of the students wrote  a Bio poem on any character of the poem. (A bio poem is a poem that is written to describe a person, usually a fictional character)

Class VIII students were also asked to read some of Robin Sharma’s writings and interpret the relevance using three parameters, to relate these insights to their own lives. They also had the option of creating an Acrostic using the name of any character from these books.

These activities were designed by Sr. Librarian , Ms. Alka Bansal  ma’am and her team, to bring the books alive and make the reading enjoyable.

Book Week Celebration  from 04-08 May 2020
 

“There are many little ways to enlarge your world. Love of books is the best of all.”                

                                                                                                 Jacqueline Kennedy

Every year we organise a ’Book Week’ to enhance the literary skills of our students and inculcate good reading habits in them. This year the school celebrated a virtual Book Week from 4th May to 8th May 2020. The aim was to encourage students to become avid readers. Various interesting activities, related to books and reading were organised throughout the week. The students discovered their ’innate powers’, expressed their appreciation for the plant world through a fun worksheet, presented a ‘Show and Tell’, wrote stories in their own words and made comic strips on the books prescribed for them. Puppet show links were also shared with the students and an interesting online storytelling session was organized with famous writer and educationist Ms Sangita Kanjilal. The Book Week was a thumping success with students participating wholeheartedly in all the activities organized for them.

"Story telling session by Ms.Sangita Kanjilal on 08 May 2020" 
 

'We would be nothing without our stories'

It was a beautiful ending to the successful book week event which was held from 4th May to 8th May. On 8th May, a story telling session was held by Ms Sangita Kanjilal. The Google meet invite was sent to every child. Clear guidelines were given about online etiquettes and the students were allowed to comment in the chat box during the session.

Ms Sangita commenced the session with a Story from Bengal, to everybody’s surprise...kids who did not know the customs and culture of Bengal could understand the story, showing successfully that a good story is not bound by regions. 

The second story was an African folktale, which engrossed and engaged the children, introducing them to a far away land. In the end Ms Sangita took up questions of the students. Telling them about morals, journey of a writer, how a book is published, some anecdotes while writing a specific story etc. Overall the session was extremely interesting and fruitful. A great way to end the Book Week.

Workshop and Book Launch by Author - Illustrator Ms. Ruth Paul on 03 December 2019

Students of grade 5 had the opportunity to attend an engaging and captivating session by Ms. Ruth Paul, an award winning author and illustrator of children’s books. She started the session by giving the students a brief insight into her life and New Zealand, her country where she lives in a straw bale house in the middle of a paddock. She shared memories about her childhood efforts at writing and how she started her career as a
freelance illustrator and later started writing her own books. Helped by her son, the affable author enacted two of her most famous stories, Stomp! and I am jellyfish. The excited students eagerly participated in the story-telling and enacted the roles as characters of her book while the props brought life to these characters. The students also got a firsthand experience of weaving a story of their own around a few keywords. She
demonstrated how to illustrate while simultaneously making up a story, thus bringing stories to life. The presentation was followed by an engaging question and answer round where students got a chance to interact with the amiable author.
