Founder’s Day Celebration

You nurture the seeds of our thoughts,

You give us wings to fly,

You explore the artist within us,

You give us vision to think beyond the seventh sky.

For aiming high in life, You are our inspiration,

You guide us with a humble smile,

You consume yourself to make us,

Brighter and brighter.

And for all this we thank you Dear Founder !!

The students and staff of The Palace School celebrated their Founder’s Day on the 30th of Jan. It is a day of special significance as it is our Founder Pincess Diya Kumari ji’s birthday. A whole lot of celebrations were carried out for the special day.

Princess Diya Kumari ji and Maharaj Narendra Singh ji graced the ocassion.

A special assembly with the ceremonial cake cutting and colourful dances was greatly enjoyed by all. The special guests for the day were over a hundred children from NGO’s such as ‘Make a Wish foundation’, ‘Faith’, ‘Rays’ and ‘Surman’ , and they all had a wonderful time being part of the celebrations. The day witnessed the wishes of children from ‘Make a Wish Foundation’ come true and other children also received gifts from Princess Diya Kumari ji.

A special feature of the day was a live painting done by Ms. Manan, founder of Surman home for children. The lovely painting was then presented to the Princess. Ms.Manan has also recently set a world record for painting nonstop for 72 hours at the Statue Circle.

All the children also enjoyed activities such as a magic show, puppet show, mask making, interactive theatre session , an art competition,  movie watching and a whole lot of

traditional games which are almost completely forgotten in this era of technological revolution.The traditional games which were thoroughly enjoyed by the students were ‘Chain-making, ‘Sitoliya’, ‘Skipping’, Tug-o-war’,'Stapu’, and ‘Marbles’.

 With so much entertaining action packed in every second of the day, the day seemed to fly off in a jiffy and the children seemed to be asking for more. Alas ! We had to retire for the day and be ready for another day.

The Founder’s Day was indeed a very interesting, interactive, exciting and a memorable day for each member of The Palace School family !!!

Visit to the Jaipur Literature Festival

The students of classes VI and VII got the exciting opportunity to visit the Jaipur Literature Festival, Asia’s leading literature event which has earned the reputation of being “The Greatest Literary Show on Earth”.

The students got the opportunity to mingle with and celebrate the best of national and international writings, readings and witnessed for themselves how  known and unknown people from all spheres of life mix together as equals.

Some of our students managed to get the autographs of some of the celebrated authors and it surely was an achievement for the young adults.

A day before the visit the students also got to interact with the esteemed author Ms. Anita Mani in the school premises as part of the Outreach Program of the prestigious Jaipur Literature Festival. Ms. Anita Mani , the founder-editor of ‘Child Friendly News’, a fortnightly newspaper, briefed the young minds about the journey of news reporting and how it has evolved over the years.

The session ended with a current affairs quiz won by Shreshth Agarwal of class VII.

The interaction with an esteemed author and  the visit to the Jaipur Literature Festival will surely have ignited the creative sparks in our talented school students. An exposure such as this will definitely be an added advantage in grooming their overall personality.

Polo Tournament

HH Sawai Bhawani Singh Cup (a ten goal Polo Tournament)  has been instituted this year in memory of Late His Highness Maharaja Sawai Bhawani Singh Ji.

The finals of the tournament took place on 20th January at the Rambagh Polo Ground and the students of classes VI and VII from our school got the opportunity to witness the match. It was an exciting event for the students and each one of them loved every minute of being there.

Class III City Tour

The students of class III of our school, accompanied by their class teachers, had a wonderful day exploring the important landmarks of Jaipur city such as the Hawa Mahal, RBI, World Trade Park, Secretariat, JDA building etc. via a trip on a double decker bus.

The excitement of being in an open bus combined with the enthusiasm to have a glimpse of these wonderful buildings and monuments of Jaipur, made for a very innovative yet informative learning experience.

The ‘Lessons truly came alive.’
