An activity ‘Clean School, Green School’ was conducted for a month for the students of Class 4 in which students went to see a compost pit and took an interview from the gardener of the school to understand the process of it. The segregation of waste into biodegradable and non-biodegradable and the use of green and blue bins was also a part of this activity. Students were explained how to use their classroom dustbin to throw non- biodegradable waste and how to use the common green bin for throwing biodegradable waste ,which can further be used for composting. Waste isn’t waste until we waste it. Keeping this thought and to spread awareness about proper disposal of waste , students took interest to prepare their own bins out of waste materials. Out of all the students 10 representatives accompanied by three teachers went to distribute the green bins to a nearby Govt. School (Primary School) linking the SDG Goal 6 ( Clean Water and Sanitation).The children enjoyed sharing their learning with other kids and expressed their joy and reflection to the Principal and the teachers.

NIYLS summit

The summit started from 1st of December and before that we had some preparatory work before, from November itself which helped a lot. 
So we were separated in teams which goes like,
Aniruddha  -      Team  1
Mohi           -      Team  2 
Anshika      -      Team  3 
Raja            -       Team  5
 
1st December:   The three day summit started from 1 pm only as there is difference of time zones. So we were morning group or Group A. We were facing problems to join in the start but soon they sorted out things and the summit started.We had some random conversation and some random introduction. At first we were shown the introductory video which was prepared by each delegation of group A(Eastern Hemisphere). And then we were given different codes to join our respective teams as stated earlier. There in a team, there were 8-10 members where each team were given a ministry(like health, defense etc) and then we as team(or more particularly as a ministry) has to work on the problems of a fictitious country where we were provided with various statistical data as well as viewpoint of the citizens and then we prepared a speech and delivered it when we had a meet with all the other teams. Quite similar to parliament we can say where we represented our respective ministries. We were given one hour to understand the things and problems and to prepare our speech. 
(Fact: Team 1 won the prize for best recovery plan.) 
 
(From here on we never faced connectivity issue for joining from their side.)
 
2nd December The day started with breaking the ice challenge which was blind tester of disney animated movies and all[Aniruddha(Me) won the challenge] and we were shown introductory videos of Group B means the Western Hemisphere and then we again separated for our respective teams and this time the situation was like, we wanted to cut off from China. So each delegate was given one country and then they were supposed to discuss or negotiate with other nation for better commercial relationship or go for a commercial war (For example in my team i.e. team 1; I was representing UK, Dylan as India and so on and then we negotiated for trading like I am separating from China so i need to fulfill this and that from you.......after few minutes we have to discuss with others means other nations who were from our team only and finally as a community over the same topic.) After that we were supposed to explain in short about negotiation we made in our team.
(Fun Fact: What our team observed that none of us wanted commercial war and concluded that China is not there that's the reason for this conclusion.)
 
3rd December  The last day of summit and it started with the Flash Mob Dance of delegations which they had combined and then we played a game where random names were selected and some random tasks were given which was quite fun. We also played a funny quiz on Kahoot! which was also funny and informative at the same time. And then we separated for the final workshop that was 'Media Workshop' where we were shown different videos and some articles as well and for everything we were supposed pass the riddles to unlock them. We also learned how fake news spread with the example of Australia where a fake picture of Australia became viral such that some celebrities also tweeted about it. and at last we were supposed to draw five points to improve media and all. And at last each team presented their points.
(Fact: Team 5 won for the best team with the 5 goals and Team 1 won for fastest group for media workshop.)
 
After almost 1 hours of rest we had the closing ceremony where awards were presented and their we shared our experiences and all.
And India along with Finland, Netherlands and Senegal was awarded with 'most committed delegation'. 
 
 
At last, the summit was great and was far better than expectations. We all learned about leadership, skills to negotiate, work as a team, make others understand your point, and we also learned about some global problems and ways to solve them. We exchanged the cultural beauty of each other and found some really good friends. 
This summit really widen our horizon to react, communicate or to connect with others whom you never met and are completely different which has enhanced our confidence as well and I am quite sure that it is going to help us a lot in long run and in near future as well where we all are going to face different kind of people at different stages. We all are grateful to you ma'am for choosing us for this amazing summit and making us part of this unbelievable journey and giving us this opportunity that we formed a global family of beautiful people.
 
Once again, thank you from each and every member of our team.

This momentous event was presided over by the Principal of the school, Mr Mukesh Shelat and the Coordinators of the institution. A spirit of unity and dynamism filled the air as the ceremony commenced with the morning prayer.

The investiture ceremony is a solemn occasion wherein all the young students are well prepared to don the mantle of leadership and responsibility while carrying it out with utmost dedication. Initially, the candidates had prepared and presented themselves through strong and impressive campaigning to qualify for the elections. A democratic voting procedure was set in pace which ultimately formed the school prefect body for the current session. In continuation to this, the students presented a beautiful drama ‘Great, wide, beautiful, wonderful World’ which was a message to everyone to come up as a leader to protect the beautiful planet Earth. Through this presentation, the students tried to bring awareness about the importance of the resources provided by the nature to all the living creatures and the ways in which each one of us could play our part in protecting it.

After the presentation, the Head Prefects, Vice Head Prefects and the Prefects from each house were conferred with appointment letters and badges. The newly elected members of the school prefect body pledged to work earnestly and uphold the honour and glory of the institution during the oath taking ceremony. It was a proud moment for all the parents to witness their children being invested with great responsibilities while embarking on a new journey as leaders. The Principal congratulated all the young leaders andadmonished them to be impartial and honest in discharging their duties. He also exhorted them to uphold their moral values and reminded them that with position comes responsibilities towards themselves, their school and peer. He alsoencouraged them to always walk on the correct path and be the change. He even motivated the children to keep moving forward despite all the obstacles and challenges that life throws in front of them. He said that being a leader is a vital role and that the new prefect body would have ample responsibilities to shoulder.

The ceremony concluded with the national anthem and finally the big and memorable day came to an end with a note of promise of not only being a responsible leader in maintaining  the dignity of the school but also maintaining a balanced environment to uphold the versatility of  this beautiful Earth.

Child’s first school, the home.

Have you ever tried to break open a seed in the hope that a sapling will burst forth? It may come across as a bizarre question, but after all a seed carries in it a latent possibility of life. And if the only way life sprouts forth is by breaking it open, then why not just break it? Well, this may not be one of the hotly debated issues, for its an accepted fact, rather a universally accepted one, that in the warmth and the embryonic cocoon of the earth alone will a tiny seed, size of the tree notwithstanding, will break open with signs of life. It is then that the external elements of air and light play their part. To the question whether home is the first and the most important school of a child, I cite a similar analogy.

A home can rightly be called the first unit or building block of a larger picture called society. Whereas rules governing nations have been laid down in charters, those governing human behavior have their roots in families and homes. A home is the first place where a child acquires the nuances of language, spoken and unspoken, the attributes of love and sharing, the richness of celebrations and the harmony of bonding. Like an extended embryo, a home prepares a child to acquire a state of receptivity, which equips him to fit in the rigor of formal schooling much like the tiny seed that once broken by the soil is ready to reach out to the skies. If a mother’s womb prepares a child physically, a tending home goes on to raise a mentally healthy child who will be strongly rooted and socially adaptable.

At a time when countries are shifting focus from GDP to GWB (General Well Being) for economics of happiness yield better dividends than economics of bankrolls, the position of home as the first school in a child’s life is being revisited with a renewed vigor. It goes without saying that the tallest and the strongest of buildings that have weathered the tests of times are those that have a strong foundation beneath the earth. Men of valor and women of fortitude are those who have been raised well in edifying homes. Timeless words of Franklin D. Roosevelt echo the same sentiment and shall remain a beacon for centuries to come. “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” Needless to say, the only place that makes it possible is a child’s first school, the home.

Jolly Phonics

Indians are adept at learning languages; however learning & mastering English has been a challenge due to the inherent contradictions in the language itself. Even the native English speaker finds the language unscientific since there is a difference in the spoken & the written word. Two teachers of UK created a multi sensory system (Jolly Phonics) by dividing the 26 alphabets into 44 sounds that are taught in groups rather than in the A to Z sequence. Each sound is learnt through a story, a song, an action & a visual. DPS Varanasi has always been agile to the need of the time. In order to make language learning enjoyable and effective at the Primary level leading to long term benefits our team of teachers went through a rigorous workshop on Jolly Phonics on 14 th & 15 th April. The children have begun learning English through the “Jolly” technique.

MELANGE (COLLAGE MAKING)

Less radical, and more useable, are the methods of collage”. Collage making can act as a spring to new ideas of creativity. It is not only about using waste material but also an opportunity through which one can freely express his/her imagination and creativity; and when such an opportunity is given at an early stage of schooling, children tend to create natural and real imaginations. Such an inspiring activity was conducted for the DPS Varanasi Junior Wing students (classes III, IV, V) on 27 th April 2017 in the House Activity Period where the students were asked to utilize waste papers/ newspapers to make a collage on ‘Cleanliness-our collective domain’, the theme of the activity. The activity was divided into two different ways to display the collage. The students of Classes III and IV were asked to prepare ‘a tear and paste’ collage related to cleanliness with an inspiring slogan where students came up with brilliant ideas by showing the collage of the clean and green Earth, a man collecting the garbage thrown on streets, usage of dustbins etc. Class V was asked to prepare Placards along with pictures on it, spreading the message of cleanliness, using the tear and paste method. The activity was a thought which turned to be a creative success.

Matrabhasha Divas , held on 2015-02-21 at DPS Varanasi premises

There is no sound sweeter than the words uttered in our mother tongue. Be it happiness, excitement, thrill or even anger, one can express oneself clearly and completely in one’s mother tongue. Since English has taken the forefront and we prefer to communicate in English, unconsciously ignoring our mother tongue.

To make the children aware about this, Matrabhasha Gyan Pariksha was organized on 21st February 2015, wherein all the students of classes VI - VIII participated.  As one entered the venue one could feel the pulse and magnitude of the event. The entire campus was abuzz with the celebration as the students were seen wishing and greeting the teachers in their mother tongue in different ways like Sat-shree-akal, kem-chho etc. The Pariksha was conducted in two phases.

 The students were provided with a multiple choice GK questionnaire with an objective to create awareness of linguistic traditions and to give fillip to “Knowledge Creation” in Indian languages. Phase II comprised two activities-Poster making Competition’ on cultural heritage, language and diversity in India 

A passage in English was given to be translated in Mother Tongue or any other Indian Language with an objective to support translation from other languages. This kind of celebration would ignite a passion for greater use of Mother Tongue and other Indian Languages among students as well as helpful in the development and progress of the nation.

Message from the Principal’s desk:

As an educator, I have always believed in quality education and providing ample opportunities for each child to learn and accomplish his/her potential. This had been made possible through “khoj: An insight to one’s self.” Khoj is a platform where the students are able to become self-reliant, independent and inculcate caring and sharing attitude for their fellow beings. They are taught to socialize with one another through this medium. It is actually a collective input of students, parents and staff and my heartiest congratulation to this team for creating such a healthy, safe and exciting milieu where each child discovers oneself and becomes a more confident individual.
