Interactive Sessions with Delegates from UK

The Palace School students and teachers got a rare opportunity on the 9th of August to interact with teachers from UK. The teachers from different fields of specialization shared their knowledge and experience with us.

We had amongst us teachers of ‘Religious Studies’ and ‘English as Foreign Language’, Teacher from Initial Teacher Training, Trainee Doctor and Trainee Nurse.DSC_8488

A traditional welcome comprising of ‘tilak’ and garlanding was greatly appreciated by the guests. It was followed by a short cultural program comprising of Indian folk dances that enthralled the visitors.

Thereafter the interactive sessions were held with various groups .

The scouts along with the physical training teachers were briefed by the Trainee Doctor and Trainee Nurse about ways to give first-aid on school campus in case of medical emergencies. Even the helping staff of the school was given lessons in first –aid.

The teachers of our school interacted with teachers from UK and exchanged ideas about making teaching more effective. It was a very enriching session in which the teachers discussed and analyzed the cultural differences, the methodologies and the education policy of the two countries.DSC_8600

The session with students was equally exciting and interactive in which the students took part in some playful activities while learning about the cultural differences between the two countries.

All in all it was a very informative session for each group and the school hopes to rope in more such interactive sessions for the benefit of the students and teachers.

Independence Day Celebration

Independence Day

15th August 2013: India’s 67th Independence Day and reasons galore to celebrate the long journey that our country has embarked upon since 1947and still going strong. It is a perfect day to commemorate the great Indians who fought selflessly to give India its freedom while also reminding ourselves to honour their sacrifices by becoming better citizens of the nation.

The Palace School also celebrated 15th August to pay respect to our country and to pay homage to our forefathers who laid down their lives so that their children could breathe on free land.

A Flag hoistingAfter the ceremonial flag hoisting ceremony by Mrs Urvashi Warman, our Principal madam, the day’s function began with a patriotic song ‘Aye Mere Watan Le Logon’, so melodiously sung by the young girls. The  dances presented thereafter  brought across the patriotic spirit in the most appropriate manner, as one performance paid tribute to Mangal Pandey the first known freedom revolutionary and the second paid tribute to the Indian Army to whom we are ever thankful for keeping us safe in our country. A short skit was also presented that portrayed the dream of ‘Unity in Diversity’ that Mahatma Gandhi had for the nation.DSC_9451

The highlight of the day was a puppet skit put up by the ‘Rajasthan Samagr Seva Sangh and Mahatma Gandhi Jeevan Darshan Samiti’. The skit titled ‘Mohan to Mahatma’ sketched the life of ‘The Father of The Nation’ right from his childhood days to the days that led to him becoming an iconic figure. The puppets were so lifelike that it seemed as if one was watching a movie. The skit reminded each and everyone in the audience about the values that Gandhiji lived by and the kind of ‘India’ he dreamt about.

DSC_9463In the end our Principal Madam addressed the gathering and rightly stressed on the contrast between India of Gandhiji’ s dream and India today. She implored the young students to be proactive, in their own little way, for the betterment of the country.

The chanting of ‘Jai Hind’ and ‘Vande Mataram’ in unison filled everyone’s heart with a passion to be able to do something for the country!!

We wish and pray for our students to be responsible citizens of the country who would one day be instrumental in shaping the country’s future.

Jai Hind !!
