Activities

 

“All study and no play makes Jack a dull boy” – a famous proverb well entrenched in our minds since childhood. 

It is widely accepted that extracurricular activities are the best way of developing an individual’s personality and trimming down mental stress. A child can improve his/ her skills and enhance their confidence level.

At Goenka, we firmly believe that textual studies are a part of the full development of a child and therefore we provide a spectrum of activities. The main thrust of activities here are planned and executed to promote the holistic development of the students. 

 

SPECTRUM: Prism of Creativity

 

It is said that knowledge is like a garden, if it is not cultivated, it can’t be harvested.

 

The students of grade1 unraveled their amazing talent where they confidently explained different concepts whichever they had learnt so far with creative holidays homework theme of cultural depiction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Science Club

Astronomy Grade 

The session on ‘Telescope and it’s Power’ was conducted for the students of grade II to aware them about the importance and usage of Telescopes. The story was being narrated about the invention of the Telescope and was also told about the parts of Telescope. They saw a distant object through the Telescope.

ASTRONOMY

GRADE II

The session was about “ MOTIONS OF THE EARTH” in which the students learned about the two types of Motion of the earth which are Rotation and Revolution. The students performed an activity in which they behaved as the Earth and showed the two types of Motions around the table which depicted the Sun. This helped the students to distinguish between the two of them.

GRADE III 

 

The topic was Let’s Explore the Earth in which the students learned about the Axis of Rotation, Poles, the Equator , the Northern and Southern hemisphere and their importance. The students also performed an activity in which they made their own Earths with the clay and indicated the Axis and equator on the Earth with the help of toothpicks. The activity helped the students to visualise the things and understand the concept better.

GOENKANS’ SUMMER CAMP (2019-20)

“The perfect summer time is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing and our little GOENKANS are enjoying.”

 Summer programs offer opportunities for learning and laughter, as well as plenty of chances to experience new things and to work as a team. Away from the routine of traditional school days, we take an iniative to organise a CAMP for our tiny tots which include several activities like swimming, dance, computers, language development skills and “me time” because a little bit of summer is what the whole year is all about.

Online Interaction: Scientific Interaction Program for Inspiring Students

DETAILS OF THE EVENT:

Our Guest Dr. Koushik Chatterjee, Doctoral Candidate at the University of Amsterdam. He worked with the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) theory team, which helped to interpret the recently released black hole image using multiple simulations. Also, he is working on projects related to theories of Astrophysical processes.

The topic of the interaction was “First Ever Picture of Black Hole”

 

SIPIS.box is an online interactive program organized to inspire and provide a platform for our students to interact with distinguished personalities in the field of Astronomy.  Students got an opportunity to share their ideas, views and created a platform where the exchange of knowledge takes place. It helped students to enhance their analytical, critical and quick thinking, explored questions of identity, note-taking, speed reading, and in-depth research.

 CULTURAL EXCHANGE PROGRAMME

“Culture is a window reflecting the history, culture and spiritual world of a nation. Cultural exchange is a bridge to enhance the mutual understanding and friendship between the people of different nations”.

Our academic and cultural exchange programme began with the coming of two teachers from Wimbledon High School, London. The teachers interacted with the students and teachers during the programme and observed the teaching methods in our school. They also enriched the teachers about the teaching methods in their school in London.

The school organised a tour around Delhi taking the teachers to various centres of Indian culture and craft production such as dilli haat. The teachers got a useful insight about the culture, tradition, values and artefacts of India through the visits. The school also organised a visit to Agra where the teachers visited the famous historical Agra fort and the mesmerising Taj Mahal which stands as an epitome of Indian culture and heritage. Throughout the exchange there were several enriching and enlightening conversations between the teachers of the two schools wherein they spoke about various activities conducted in schools and the various methods of teaching and learning aids that could be incorporated.

Over all the exchange programme was very fruitful for the teachers and opened a window of culture which will be useful in the future as well. As we are moving towards becoming a global village, it would be rightly said “Perhaps one of the greatest means to achieve global peace and harmony is cultural exchange”.

Our school is looking forward for a similar cultural exchange programme in the near future where teachers from our school will get an opportunity to visit the Wimbledon high school so as to get a first-hand insight about the culture and teaching methods so as to make teaching a globally interactive platform.

“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.”

Children of grade 1 celebrated Earth Day by making ‘HAPPY EARTH DAY’ badges for themselves. They learnt about the different ways through which we can save our ‘Mother Earth’. Use the 3R’S( reduce, reuse and recycle) to cut down the amount of waste we throw away.

‘Grow Trees, Save Life, Save Earth!’

GRADE II

 

 SCIENCE CLUB

 

As a part of the indoor activity ‘DEXTERS LAB’ our little Einsteins did some mind tingling experiments.

In the first session, they did an experiment with vinegar and baking soda. They added baking soda in vinegar filled inside a plastic bottle. The mouth of the bottle was covered with a balloon which got inflated due to the formation of CO2.

In the second session, they learnt that ‘AIR OCCUPIES SPACE’ by a simple yet brain storming experiment using a zip lock pack and a straw. The straw was fixed into the zip lock pack such that one could blow air in it. The pack was kept in between a book. Upon blowing the air, the book opens up proving that air occupies space.

 

Thus, this amazing indoor activity helped in quenching the curiosity of little budding minds of our little Goenkans.

EARTH DAY

 

Earth is the God’s best gift to us, we made it worse, lets care for it, by pledging to save the green THE EARTH.

Our little Goenkans took a pledge to save the mother Earth, by making ‘PLEDGE CARDS’.

The students promised to alter their habits to save mother Earth.

The children were made aware that every day is an Earth Day and the purpose of celebrating Earth Day is to help to keep our grass green and our skies blue with more trees and less pollution.

* Khushi Singhania of 3B come up with a thoughtful gesture of giving a sapling of Jade Plant (indoor plant) to our Principal Ma’am. She took an initiative to create awareness about the need to save our planet Earth.

 

INDEED! A THOUGHTFUL AND APPLAUDABLE GESTURE.*
