When independence resonates with the young India

The morning of August 15, 2017 was reverberating with the pride and happiness of being an Indian amongst the team of GIIS Chinchwad. While the festivities were all around the campus, the feeling of patriotism stirred all the souls bringing each one together to salute the national flag and remember the great heroes, the true sons of the soil and warriors of our motherland. The day began with the hoisting of the tricolor by the Director Principal, Dr Amrita Vohra. Each heart swelled with pride as the tunes of the national anthem filled the air. This was followed by the releasing of the tricolor balloons which was symbolic of freedom, flight and success.

The special assembly marking the 71st Independence Day was an event to look out for. The program began with paying homage and respects to the Father of the Nation- Mahatma Gandhi for his efforts that paved way for Indian independence. A beautiful song was presented by the School Choir. As they sung the iconic song celebrating and acknowledging the brave warriors of our motherland “Ae mere watan ke logon”, each one present in the auditorium could feel the elated sense of their responsibilities towards their country. A fusion dance performance celebrated the diversity of India and was appreciated by all.

Dr Vohra in her address spoke about the vision that our leaders had while fighting for independence. She urged the students to ask questions to them if they have truly attained freedom. She also encouraged them to work hard towards getting their country back to its “Sone ki chidiya” days and tread on a road less travelled to create opportunities and road map for a better India.

Let Peace prevail

Peace is not just a word denominating a state where there is no war. Peace is a way of life; it is the state of mind, a salubrious ecosystem, a harmonious connection with oneself and a healthy and serene life.  To align our students towards identifying peace as a pursuit and be the messengers of global peace, World Peace Day was celebrated in Global Indian International School, Chinchwad. This day is observed in the memory of Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl whose name is synonymous with hope and peace.

The assembly highlighted the importance of peace in our day to day lives. Students performed a nukkad natak that gave the message of peace and tolerance. A musical rendition on “Let there be peace in the world” set the prelude beautifully for this assembly and a mesmerizing dance performance was indeed enthralling. A student dawned on the role of Malala Yousufzai and spoke about peace by giving the message that education can lead to a tolerance and love. Students also showed a small video that played messages from their teachers and peers on what peace means to them.

Director Principal Dr Amrita Vohra said, “Peace is essential for a better way of living—peace of mind, peace in the family and peace in nature. Today, in our modern, technological world, man apparently has access to everything he desires. In the absence of peace, however, everything has been rendered meaningless. What is needed to redress the balance is love, compassion, tolerance, forbearance and the spirit of co-existence” She urged the students to become the crusaders of spreading peace and harmony.

Lord Krishna is an embodiment of playfulness, innocence, wit and charm that is beautifully associated with childhood. It is therefore seen that his birthday is observed and celebrated with great pomp and splendor all across the world. GIIS Chinchwad also celebrated the occasion of Janmashtami where students dressed up as little Radhas and Krishnas in Indian attire and finery.

A dance performance on “Madhuban mein jo kanhaiya” was the highlight of this program and it was endearing to witness the little ones dancing to glory. Small episodes from Krishna’s life were enacted by the children that showed the way he was adored even for his mistakes. Children also sang a song narrating the cute little antics of Kanha. Children also did the auspicious custom of Dahi Handi. It was endearing to see the little kanhas and gopis enjoy the occasion. Breaking the pot was indeed exciting as the children looted the goodies of the pot once they broke it. a lot of art and craft activities were conducted where children made flutes, peacock feather and dahi matkis as takeaways.

With August approaching, the season of festivity has knocked our doors. While celebrating the festival of Rakshabandhan we are celebrating the equality of brothers and sisters as they celebrate their unconditional love. The most endearing ways to celebrate the pious bond between brothers and sisters is Rakshabandhan.

On this Raksha Bandhan, GIIS celebrated the festival of unconditional love with its tiny tots and shared the importance of this festival among brothers and sisters. Children engaged themselves in “Rakhi making activity” and to strengthen the bond handmade Rakhis were made in classes. A special assembly was also held, and various activities of rakhi making using tinted sheets, ribbons and sequins on collage and paint were enjoyed by all.

In view of the Vanmahotsav, the biggest plantation and green festival of India, the students of GIIS also held a plantation drive in their school campus. While the motto remained to give back to the nature by planting more trees and creating green zones which are of multi benefits, the purpose was also to create a small medicinal garden in the school premises with the herbs and plants of therapeutic values that can be used in the school. Students took the lead in the plantation drive as the school gardeners readily offered their help. Both boys and girls took chances in ploughing the soil and planting the saplings. Some of the plants that laced the school garden were Aloe Vera, Tulsi, Ginseng, Neem etc. Students also learnt their botanical names.

Dr Vohra, Director Principal on the occasion said, “Sensitizing students on environmental welfare is of prime importance to my school’s culture. I find gardening extremely rejuvenating and tending to plants makes me immensely happy. I therefore want my children to experience the bliss of planting trees and ensuring that Mother Nature is respected and protected by her children.”

Sprinklers of stardust over their grandchildren’s lives- Grandparents

Alex Haley rightly said, “Nobody can do for little children what Grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.” Grandparents have the magical aura that adds a wonderful glow and charm to their grandchildren’s life. They appease, soothe, and impart values with tremendous ease. They hold a special place in the lives of the little. Global Indian International School, Chinchwad celebrated the importance of grandparents and observed a special assembly for this.

Children recited a beautiful poem on the bonding between the grandchildren and grandparents that highlighted the pure and innocent bond.  They spoke on how grandparents love their grandchildren selflessly and serve as confidants, best friends and mates.

The emotional relationship between Grandparents and their grandchildren can significantly affect the grandchildren. Grandparents play a 360 degree role and provide for a wholesome development and growth of children that has positive benefits on their emotional, spiritual, social and physiological development.

Health and Hygiene is the way of life

The foundation years of a child are the most important in determining habits that will stay with him for life. It is therefore important to orient them towards developing a positive way of living that they will retain for life. Health and personal hygiene are two very important factors which need intervention from an early age. Global Indian International School, Chinchwad observed a Hygiene and Health week in its pre primary wing dedicating it to activities that encourage children to adapt to a healthy way of life.

The week long activities included giving students information about health and hygiene, getting them oriented towards products that assist in personal hygiene like soap, hand wash, nail cutter, tooth paste, tooth brush, napkins etc. elaborating on their use and purpose. Children will colour the pictures of these mentioned things. Teachers also took sessions on talking about the importance of keeping the surroundings clean and monitored their nails, hair, uniform etc. Videos were shown on cleanliness and hygiene with a message of “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. Through short stories children were also given an important lesson on “Swachch Bharat” and encouraged to become agents of change. Group activities that involved collage making and fruit salad making were encouraged. Children were told about the benefits of eating fruits in order to promote good eating habits and a healthy life.

A sense booth was made at the preprimary bay which will be displaying sight and feel objects. Objects like sunglasses, binoculars, magnifying glasses, kaleidoscope etc were kept to be experienced by children. For elaborating on the sense of touch various montessori materials like touch board, thermic tablets, fabrics, scrubber, feathers, sand, rangoli powder, hot/warm and cold water, ice etc were placed to be experienced by all children.

Global Indian International School, Chinchwad is known for its progressive way of teaching and exposing its staff to best practices that will provide them with an edge. Constant upgradation of its teaching fraternity both professionally and personally, to the ethos of GIIS Chinchwad is significant. In view of the same, GIIS Chinchwad held a one of its kind workshop/ training session for its leaders on Neuro Linguistic Programming on July 15 and 16, 2017 where the staff was given 17 clock hours of the training. The training was conducted by the leading NLP trainer of the country Mr. Anil Dagia.

The workshop focused on the exploration of how we communicate, think and change with the aim of replicating and improving great performance in any context. It touched upon both conscious and unconscious processes that lead to increased communication skills, confidence, motivation and success and is directly related to increasing our ability to influence and persuade.

The purpose of this workshop was to

  • Improve personal and social skills – help develop and improve on existing skills
  • Business skills like improved leadership, coaching, sales, influence and managing change
  • Help with personal challenges
  • Health – help individuals change limiting beliefs, habits and behaviour
  • Sport – Used to help people reach and maintain peak performance.

The staff and faculty benefitted largely from this session and state that basic principles of purposeful living are often neglected in the daily routine of life. It is important to condition your mind and program it to help you lead a well balanced life. The workshop had a lot of group activites, self analysis modules, and practical goal setting templates which were enjoyed by all.

Anil is probably the most innovative NLP trainer in India. He got his NLP training approved by International Coaches Federation (ICF) for Coach Specific Training, a feat which no other NLP trainer in India has been able to do before him. He has created unique training programs titled “Emotional Fitness Gym”, “Neuro Linguistic Manipulation” & many other programs customized to meet the needs of the organizations that have hired him which includes top names from various industries like Insurance, IT, Manufacturing, Non-Profit, Education, Banking, Energy, Automobile etc.

He has trained & coached over 4000 people across 11 nationalities (including French, Spanish, British, South Africans & more) from various professions.
