For sensitizing students…

Safety of children is of prime concern for all but an unfortunate reality in today’s world is that the safety of our children is often at stake. Some recent incidents have further accentuated the need to ensure safety of young children and hence this is an issue which requires immediate attention. Global Indian International School held sensitizing sessions across grades of pre primary and primary talking to them on appropriate touch and behavior.

The session on good touch bad touch was taken up and children were encouraged to speak up to their parents or teachers or family members if they experience any sort of bad touch. They were sensitized on what could be inappropriate touching and given instructions on touching rules that are appropriate. Teachers took the session with their classes where they were shown videos and were oriented towards basic rules that they should be careful of.

The behavioral counselor, Ms Kinjal Goradia also took a session with parents of pre primary students who are the most vulnerable group of kids and gave them a few warning signs to observe and be careful of. She gave a talk on building up a healthy and comfortable relationship with their children so that there is no fear in the innocent minds.

Staring into the blue light

Most of the research on screen time focuses on kids, because, after all, that’s where the biggest difference in lifestyle is. Adults may stare at computers all day as a simple matter of course because under obvious scenarios it is hard to find standard 9-to-5 job that doesn’t involve a screen. However, children are supposed to be gleefully climbing trees, throwing apples and engaging in other traditional manifestations of childhood, not staring at a smartphone for hours on end.

 

Being concerned about whether children are spending too much time around screens is not exactly a new worry, but it’s a field where some interesting new conclusions have been found recently. To understand and make parents aware of the long term harmful effects of screen on children, a workshop was conducted by Ms Ophelia Lobo, Counselor. The objective of the workshop was not only to equip parents with the information on screen exposure and its effects, but also to empower them to change screen-time habits at home.

 

Parents were taken through a series of causes as to why parents these days look at screen-time as ‘play/learning time’, at the same time not realizing the effects it has on their child’s brain and development. Screen-time is addictive and can take over the entire range of interests, hobbies and skills of a child. Therefore, it cannot be used to substitute real-time play. The workshop strongly focused on the damages of screen-tme in the following aspects:

 

Effects on – 

  • Brain and its development
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Behavior
  • Social skills
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Sleep
  • Speech
  • Body

Parents also shared how their kids throw tantrums and were taken through what they can do to manage such behaviour. Many activities to replace this habit were also spoken about. There were some activities throughout the interaction and parents were real game while participating. What was really appreciated was not only their interaction but also their receptiveness in understanding the true effects of digital screens. Towards the end, parents were also educated about parental control apps, softwares, child friendly websites, and other aspects such as installing spyware and anti-virus to avoid cyber-dangers.

Insight into Queens University, UK

At Global Indian International School, providing Career counseling and guidance to our students has always been an integral part in the senior years. Continuing in the same direction, a session was organized for Grade XI and XII students where they were oriented towards The Queens University, Belfast, UK. A representative of the University, Mr Trueman spoke to the students and took them through the functioning and offerings of the University.

This session was organized by our Career Counseling partners Univariety who for the last 4 years have been instrumental in orienting students to make informed career choices and helping them by providing a detailed insight into various Universities with their choice of streams. This session also covered various aspects that are considered by parents and students both before enrolling for any university/college. Mr Trueman spoke about the process of admissions, fee structure, and history of the University and in what way students could benefit.

This was followed by a Q & A session where the students cleared their doubts and were given clarity on the various admission and application processes. Students also inquired on the lifestyle and cost of living in the city and Mr Trueman happily answered their queries.

In admiration of our National Language

It is said that the best form of expression for humans is through their mother tongue and native language and for us as Indians it comes with the language of Hindi. Our emotional bonding, comfort and identity will always be more inclined towards Hindi as it forms the basis of our existence. Hindi as a language has evolved through a rich legacy and is extremely rich in vocabulary.

At GIIS Chinchwad we strive to sensitize students towards the importance of our national language. We teach them that no matter how proficient and articulate we get in other languages, the first word which still takes predominance over any other languages when we face trouble is ‘maa’. We also orient them towards the magic that can be woven with the Hindi syllables. An inter-house activity of ‘Slogan Writing’ was held in classes where children formed groups and came up with slogans on the importance of the national language. Some slogans like “Ekta ki jaan hai, Hindi desh ki shaan hai” were seen around and were selected for best entries.

Ignite the greed to read

It is said that the human mind is the fastest, even racing ahead of the speed of light. It has the power to help you travel the spaces of the universe in just a fraction of a second. Reading proves to be one of the most important catalysts in providing the strongest wings of imagination to the mind and fuels it for development.

Global Montessori Plus observed a “Book week” to focus on developing a love towards reading books and making them their best pals. Various activities were held during the week. Story telling sessions were held that generated a lot of interest in children. Discussions and questions were encouraged and children really enjoyed the same. “Dress me up as my favorite character” saw students coming in dressed like characters from a story. Right from Pinocchio to Goldie Locks to Cinderella and Spider Man, students looked really cute in these outfits. A takeaway activity of “Bookmark making” was held where students made handcrafted bookmarks which they would be using while reading their comics and storybooks. The little ones were also taken to the senior library to enjoy their favorite read and understand the discipline of a library.

Research has also proved that imbibing reading as a habit in young learners and cultivating it through the early years helps them to not only have strong language skills and vocabulary but makes them more confident and aware.

II Guru Govind dono Khade, Kake lagu pay

Balihari guru aapki, jisne govind diyo bataye II

These are the universally accepted words of Sant Kabir which simply define the greatness of gurus, of teachers.  Since time immemorial the Teacher has played a pivotal role in the growth and development of the human race. In our country we have learnt to revere teachers, acknowledging them at a position only next to God. Teachers contribute to the overall development of the student’s personality and growth and development of the nation and to applaud this enormity of our teachers, Global Indian International School celebrated Teacher’s Day on September 4 with great pride and enthusiasm.

The senior students of Class XI made some presentations depicting their love and singing the glory and magnificence of the beautiful bonding they share with their teachers. The smile and glow on the teachers’ faces showed how appreciated and loved they felt, with some of them getting standing ovations from their beloved students. They also presented a cultural program, which added a different colour to the occasion. Students presented handmade book marks to their teachers which was symbolic of the ardent devotion and respect the students hold for their teachers.

Our Director Principak, Dr. Amrita Vohra truly believes that it is the teachers who are the pillars of this institution, the souls of this educational shrine and fantastic team members who work hard every day to create a better India through education.  With an expression of gratitude, she wholeheartedly thanked the teachers for their support and hard work and applauded them for the long term impact that they have on their students.

It is rightly said that ‘Teaching is that profession that teaches all the other professions’ because it is the teacher who plays the role of the torch bearer and holds the hands of their students to take them away from the darkness into the bright world of knowledge. They are the people on whom the humankind rests their immense faith to nourish them with the realms of knowledge. A student can find guidance, friendship, discipline and love; all from one person and that person is a TEACHER!

Festivals prove to be wonderful opportunities of bonding, spreading love and embracing each other’s religion, customs and traditions wholeheartedly to celebrate and enjoy the joys of life. They are a great way of breaking the monotony of life and look forward to days that are a little more special than others. The month of August proved to be a ride of fun moments with back to back festivals that elevated the fun quotient at school while allowing our students to understand and stay rooted to our traditions.

Dawning on Indian traditional attire, the students looked beautiful for the festivities in school. All the rituals and customs pertaining to Ganesh Chaturthi, Rakshabandhan and Janmashtami were followed that oriented our students to understand the importance of these festivals. The birth of Lord Krishna, Janmashtami was celebrated with pomp and splendor. Little ones danced to the tunes of “Madhuban mein jo kanhaiya…” and did the “Dahi Handi”. They also enacted various scenes from Lord Krishna’s life.

Students made cute rakhis to observe rakshabandhan and understood the story behind celebrating the bond of sibling love. During ganpati special assembly and class activities were conducted to celebrate the festival and modaks were distributed among all.
