Greetings to all of you on the 63rd Independence Day of our country.

Greetings to all of you on the 63rd Independence Day of our country.

So what relevance does this day have for us today? For some of us, it is just another national holiday, for others it’s the day when one would rather stay in the comfort of our homes than go for flag hoisting in schools, colleges and offices and for some it’s a day to make cynical comments on the government and the state of the country. I think we need to do a lot more – not by merely having cultural programmes, not by unfurling more flags, singing patriotic songs or delivering more speeches – but by instilling a sense of belonging and ownership in the common man – especially children as they are still in the age where their psyche can be moulded accordingly.

It is important to teach our children to take up responsibility towards giving themselves and their neighbor a better life; and the first step in this direction would be to guide them to take responsibility for their own emotions, speech, actions, failures and success. It is important not to let them develop a ‘CHALTA HAI’ attitude, not to let them foster a fatalistic view of life and not to get into a blame game when things go wrong. Teach them that honesty and generosity are the basic tenets which will go a long way in creating peace, harmony and success in their lives and all around them. Remember you are their role models. They are watching you every moment and emulating every action and speech. So you as parents have a much higher responsibility to give the correct exposure to your child.

Let us start working on these simple, basic principles with these young ones who are the inheritors of the world to come.

Jai Hind.

Sincerely,

Mrs.Urvashi Warman

Information on exhibition in school & pictures

The Children Of The Palace School put up a fine exhibition of their  summer projects in the school premises on Saturday 24th July 2010. Along with beautifully done up scrap books on various topics ranging from dental hygiene to first and tips and general awareness, the children displayed beautifully done up models of the Thar Desert.

The most interesting display was of hand painted T-shirts and napkins done by young eight and nine year old children. The parents also appreciated the clay figurines and craft items made of waste materials by the students of the primary classes.

SPELLWHIZ

The above mentioned names will be appearing for the final round of Hindi and English spelling competition to become the SPELLWHIZ of the school.

Workshops conducted for teachers in the school


WORKSHOP ON TIME MANAGEMENT

A workshop on time management was conducted by Mr Hemant Gupta,alumni of IIT Kanpur, for the teachers of the Palace School. He gave very useful tips on how to get the maximum output from the limited hours everybody has in hand.The most interesting aspect was that one cannot manage time because number of hours available to everybody is fixed,rather one needs to manage ones ownself, so the term TIME MANAGEMENT in itself is a fallacy.


WORKSHOP ON MATHEMATICS

A two day workshop on latest trends in teaching/ learning methodology in Mathematics was conducted by Ms Archana Raj for the teachers of our school.Ms Raj ,who has 28 years of teaching experience in this field, shared some highly interesting and innovative techniques of teaching mathematics which would go a long way in making a child love the subject rather than fear it.

Both the workshops proved very useful not only for the personal growth of the faculty but also went a long way to enhance their teaching skills.

Thank you,

Mrs. Urvashi Warman
