May 2015 Update

Date: May 31, 2015 Author: Rachel Categories: News

May is always a very busy month for us! A regular feature on our school calendar in May is the Flower and Plant growing competition. The purpose of this activity is to improve the interest of students in growing plants and to increase their knowledge about, and concern for the environment. Well done to the students in the photograph who were the winners. In 1st place: Abhay from 7th class. 2nd place: Ankita and Akshay from 8th class and in 3rd place were Muskan and Priyanshi Sharma from 8th class.

Our school was also very lucky to receive two special visitors from Canada for 2 weeks, Natasha and Kandal. Both girls are training to become primary school teachers in the future, so they worked closely with all our students from 1st to 5th class. The children loved being taught by them and their enthusiasm and interest in our school was wonderful. A big thank you to both of them from all our staff and students.

On 16th May we also held our annual drawing competition, which is open to all students from 1st to 8th class. All students took part in this competition. The younger students’ topic was flowers, one group’s topic was ‘water resources’, and the rest of the students drew a picture on the topic of ‘a pollution-free environment.’ Well done to the winners in the photo.

On Thursday 23rd May our regular cleanliness drive was held. Every year our students pick up litter and clean up the local area around the school. Thank you Natasha and Kandal for joining us.

The Jagori women’s group also came to our school and ran a special workshop for our students in 6th, 7th, and 8th classes. The focus concerned what the students do to help at home, as tasks they can do before and after school. The workshop instilled in our students the importance of helping their families and taking the initiative to be purposeful. It will help them improve and build on good habits and give them a sense of discipline in their lives. Once again, thank you to all at Jagori.
