Our India Our Pride

Jai Hind

64 glorious years of free India and reasons galore for the young and energetic Indians of ‘The Palace School’ to rejoice and commemorate our freedom fighters.

The day’s celebration started off with the pre-primary children dancing and singing to the tunes of songs that celebrate the vibrancy and free spirit of Indians. The colourful attire teamed with the effervescent tricolour of our nation made for such a spectacular visual treat.

The ‘Nanha Munna Desh Ka Sipahi’ sung by Level I children captivated everyone’s heart. The Level-II children were seemingly gloating in the realisation that they are senior to Level I and aptly portrayed it in songs such as ‘We shall overcome’, ‘Chodo kal ki baatein’ and ‘Saare Jahan Se Accha Hindustan Hamara’.

The nimble feet of our youngest stars performed on songs such as ‘Suno Gaur se Duniyawalon’, ‘Phir bhi dil hai hindustani’ and ‘Badal pe paon hain’. The sheer purity of their expressions and enchanting smiles made everyone present sway and feel transcended to a different world altogether.

Thereafter, the primary wing of the school paid tribute to the nation by presenting a cultural event .

The event started with ‘Saraswati Vandana’ to seek the blessings of Goddess for a life filled with the light of knowledge, followed by an exemplary exhibition of the musical talent of our young maestros. The rhythm of musical instruments such as tabla, sitar, violin , casio and harmonium all played in perfect harmony filled the arena with unmatched patriotic fervour.

‘Unity in Diversity’ , the mantra, which our secular country thrives on, was so vividly depicted by the class I students, when they dressed up in groups representing different states of India and the freedom fighters hailing from the respective states.  It was a heartfelt tribute to the noble souls whose sacrifice made us see the dawn of free India.

A patriotic song competition for classes IV to VI certainly revived and reignited the patriotic spirit in our youngsters and the chant of Jai Hind and Vande Mataram filled the very core of our hearts with a passionate zeal for our Motherland.

The sacred and pious bond of brother and sister on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan came across through a melodious and heart warming song.

A short skit presented by the class III students demonstrated the immortal virtues of honesty, humbleness, kindness and righteousness practised by Gandhiji right from his childhood days.

The day’s function was marked by a colourful finale in the form of a dance, showcasing the eccentricities yet the lovable facets of India, by the class VI students.

All  in all the Independence day celebration was marked by excitement and energy, patriotism and dedication towards our nation and above all, a salute to all the unsung heroes as well, whose selfless acts paved the way for us to breathe and thrive in freedom !!

Jai Hind !!

Robotics

Can we imagine a world without technology today? Can we think of limits to a child’s creativity?  The obvious answer is No.

Children love to freely explore the world around them. To integrate the concept of ‘learning by doing’ with the theoretical concepts of maths and science learnt in the classroom, we at ‘The Palace School’ are proud to say that we have introduced ‘Robotics’ in the annual curriculum for classes IV to VI for the session 2011-12.

In the Robotics class the students get to design their own robots as part of a team, thereby encouraging team work and multi tasking, creative and lateral thinking, and at the end of all being filled with an exalted sense of achievement to see their hand-made models come to life !!

It’s truly an amazing sight to watch the little geniuses at work with utmost concentration and focus, grit and determination to get their model working at the earliest, and when it does, the rejoicing is unparalleled.

We just hope that this wonderful learning environment continues to get the support of the parents and is instrumental in directing the young minds of our students towards more productive and innovative thinking.
