Yoga is an integral part of our curriculum. Our Annual Sports Day is a keenly awaited event where the children showcase their sporting prowess. We conduct a Mini Olympics in our school every four years to create awareness about this mega sporting event amongst our little ones. For our children with Special Needs, an interactive Sports Day is organised every year where the parents are invited to be a part of the proceedings.
In order to inculcate basic human values in our children, a value is selected for the week and incorporated in a make-believe story which is then narrated through the week. The same story is mailed to the parents as well. The purpose of doing so is to encourage the parents to read out the story to the child on a daily basis to reinforce the value that has been taken up. Every Friday, the story is enacted by the teachers in the Morning Assembly. In the case of our four-year olds, they themselves enact out the story with the entire school as the audience. The teachers are the role models in school and the parents at home.
It has been our constant endeavour to sensitise our children to the hardships faced by our fellow countrymen and people the world over. We sent money, and dry rations to a school in Orissa meant for the underprivileged for a few years. Another year, we donated blankets during the winters to the homeless across the city via an NGO called the Uday foundation. Dry rations were sent to Nepal when an earthquake ravaged property and lives in that country. Children are made to appreciate the sacrifices made and hardships faced by our soldiers while protecting our borders. They have made rakhis and cards for our soldiers from time to time.
