Festivals : Upholds Culture and Brings Joy of Togetherness

22/10/2023, SUN

#Founders’ Pen


I am writing to emphasize the profound significance of festivals in our rich and diverse country, India. Festivals in India are not merely celebrations; they are threads that weave the cultural fabric of our nation, binding us together in unity and harmony.

Our festivals carry centuries-old traditions, values, and customs. They serve as a reminder of our shared heritage, teaching us to respect and appreciate the diversity that defines our society. Diwali illuminates the triumph of light over darkness, symbolizing knowledge dispelling ignorance.

Holi, the festival of colours, exemplifies the joy of unity in diversity. Eid fosters the spirit of generosity and communal harmony. Christmas brings in the value of compassion and sacrifice. Each festival carries unique teachings, promoting understanding and acceptance among all.

Furthermore, festivals play a pivotal role in promoting social cohesion. They provide opportunities for families and communities to come together, reinforcing the importance of togetherness and mutual support. Through these celebrations, our children learn invaluable lessons about empathy, compassion, and the spirit of giving.

In the spirit of these festivals, let us embrace the diversity that makes our country extraordinary. Let us celebrate our differences and similarities alike, fostering an environment of love, acceptance, and understanding within our school and beyond.

Added Part about Dussehra

Now, that we are celebrating Dussehra with great fervour and joy I would like to say a few things about this festival in particular.

Dussehra, also known as Vijayadashami, holds immense social and religious significance in Hindu culture. Socially, it symbolizes the victory of good over evil, encouraging people to embrace righteousness and reject negativity. The festival fosters a sense of unity and joy within communities, as families come together to celebrate. It also promotes cultural harmony and understanding among diverse groups.

Religiously, Dussehra marks the triumph of Lord Rama over the demon king Ravana, signifying the victory of dharma (righteousness) over adharma (unrighteousness). It is a time for devotees to reflect on moral values and spiritual principles. The day is often associated with the worship of Goddess Durga, representing the divine feminine energy and strength.

Dussehra instils moral and ethical lessons, reminding people of the importance of truth, courage, and compassion. The celebrations strengthen social bonds, promote religious tolerance, and inspire individuals to lead a virtuous life, making it a vital festival in the rich tapestry of India’s cultural and religious heritage.

Wishing you all a joyous festive season filled with love, compassion, and unity.

“Importance of learning Child development”

A solid understanding of milestones and developmental pathways across each domain of children’s development can benefit teachers as well as parents in several ways.

Knowledge of how children within a given age span typically develop and learn provides a general framework to guide teachers in preparing the learning environment, considering curriculum, designing learning experiences, teaching and interacting with children.

Also important for parents to know the sequences in which children gain specific concepts, skills, and abilities, building on prior development and learning familiarity, for the better understanding of their wards learning abilities.

Knowledge of child development and learning provides the best foundation for planning for children.

Knowledge of individual child, and knowledge of family, community, and culture from which the child comes helps to understand the individual needs.

Knowing what is typical at a certain age is the best place to start when experiences and environments are planned for children. Plans based on typical child development and learning meet the needs of the majority of children, then make changes to accommodate individual children who may be ahead or behind.

Knowledge of child development and learning helps to plan next steps for supporting children’s progress.

Knowledge of the sequence of knowledge or skill development in any given area helps schools to set achievable, appropriate learning goals for children. It also helps to plan activities and experiences that challenge children just enough to progress without frustrating them with a challenge that is too far beyond their abilities.

We continually expand our own knowledge of child development and learning, and apply that knowledge when we plan and make decisions in their program, can feel confident about their practice. We also have a solid foundation when we explain our decisions and practices to parents and colleagues; a foundation that goes beyond personal opinion or feelings.

How do Social and Emotional Development Affect Learning?!

There is no doubt that social emotional learning teaches character. Social-emotional competencies empower kids to grow self-aware and confident, to manage difficult emotions and impulses, and to embody empathy, which translates to not only improved behavior but also test scores.

  • Character matters
  • Character can be taught
  • Character improves academic, social, and professional achievement

By providing a kind environment, it helps to encourage optimal brain development as well as social connection and collaboration. In other words, it affects learning by shaping children’s developing neural circuitry, particularly the executive functions.

As children feel safe and learn how to inhibit disruptive emotional impulses, they exhibit greater self-confidence, better behavior and enhanced memory. They enjoy the learning process and thus, readily engage and fully immerse themselves in gaining new information and skills.

From the Director’s Desk…

Dear Students,

My warm wishes to you. I want to suggest you how to utilize our REVISION PROGRAM to get maximum benefits.

I feel that no one in this world is born without intelligence.

God has given every one the same composition of mind. It depends on you how to utilize it for your success.

If you have a definite target in life, you can easily collect all your
powers and focus them on that goal.

If you remain determined for your goal, just like the pole star, you would not be affected by any challenges or struggle of your life. If you become a pole star, your future generations would respect you and follow in your footsteps.

The famous English poet, Robert Frost, has written a poem. I would like to quote some lines here to focus more on that topic

Woods are lovely, dark and deep,
And I’ve promises to keep.
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Here, the line “And miles to go before I sleep” has been repeated.
This is an emphasis on the self-determination and strong resolution of a person who wants to do a lot before he sleeps (dies).

You are self-illuminated, just like the Sun. You possess fuel in the form of energy and wick in the form of willpower. Then, which power can stop you from getting lighted up or move towards your goal?

You keep sharpening your willpower and caliber at all points of time. Learn to trust yourself. You possess unlimited powers within you. Do not let your self-confidence go down. Keep yourself enlightened and aware;

if you do so on a consistent basis, no one can stop you from succeeding.

The most beautiful thing in this world is to see your parents smiling and
the next best thing is to know that you are the reason behind that smile.

Most of the students are functionally very strong and behaviorally very weak and often their reason for failure is not lack of knowledge or hard work but lack of motivation and positive attitude. And for you to have positive attitude towards your preparation, it is very important to answer the following question.

” Why am I studying” ?

Every task should have a sense of purpose or motive behind it.

So, first define the purpose whether

  • it is your passion
  • to make your parents happy
  • or something else.

Some important tips to follow :

# Results of a survey said that the difference between topper and slow learner is not much in terms of subject knowledge, intelligence or hard work, but the major difference is in terms of study techniques and approach towards exam.

# You should possess a great determination so that you are ready to quit (sacrifice) the most important things you like. (Watching movies or chatting with friends or something else)

# Have concrete faith in you. You are what your thoughts are. If you think you can, then you can.

Small Tip: To achieve this state of mind, stop speaking negative about anyone or anything and see the magical power of your brain.

To get benefit in revision plan :

# Though we give a revision plan, every student must plan again in that according to his/her abilities. Suppose if you are given 2 hours for Social, then you should preplan how and what to study in that given time.

# Analyze yourself daily in the night whether you prepared the whole day as you wished. If not, then list out the mistakes made by you like chatting with friends, wasting time, not taking care of health etc. and plan accordingly how to rectify them the next day.

# Write your purpose in a book to excel in exams and read that daily at least once.

# Teachers are there to guide and support you. So, you should not hesitate to ask them even a single thing which obstructs your growth.

# This is exclusively for those who struggle to pass in the exams. Follow the
instructions given by your teachers sincerely. Do not think negatively about
them. They are just to guide you and support you.

# Suppose if you are good at Maths then give more time for preparing other subjects.

Mindset before writing an exam.

# Say to yourself before writing every exam that this is the final exam and you should put forth your maximum efforts to excel in it.

# Don’t forget to revise what you had read so many days before the exam.

# Every exam conducted will show how you have prepared for that exam.

# Your performance in exams indicates your preparation.

# Every exam gives you a chance to rectify yourself before writing the final exam.

What to do after an exam is conducted (or) papers are given back?

Analyze yourself in the following areas.

Have I presented in order ?

  • Handwriting
  • Neatness
  • Mistakes
  • Your absolute ( maximum) score.

Plan yourself how to rectify the above .

Write all the mistakes done by you in a book, Inspite of your sincere efforts, you have committed that mistakes. Hence, you should revise every time from then onwards before writing any exam in that chapter.

# Rectification is the only way to develop yourself.

Things to be kept in mind:

# You are going to revise each chapter you have studied only after 2 months. So you have to revise thoroughly now itself so that it takes very less time after 2 months.

# Your daily analysis and performance analysis in exam are going to take you to the expected peaks.

# Never think of any other thing or the persons till you reach your goal.

How to overcome exam tension?

  • Speak openly with your friends or teachers about your problem and follow their suggestions.

(Mind is like a parachute, it works best when it is open)

  • One more suggestion is that it would be better if you get experience before writing the
    schedule tests. i.e. ask your friend / teacher to conduct a pretest and analyze not to repeat the mistakes.

NOTE :

Whenever you are not getting out of your problems,

read this once again. You will definitely find a solution.

HAVE A GOAL, A GOAL IS JUST A DREAM WITH A DEAD LINE……

WISH YOU ALL THE BEST

#Discipline #Learning #Success

Is self discipline important in one’s life?!

“Discipline is rarely enjoyable but almost always profitable” – Darrin Patrick

Discipline is considered a particularly valuable skill in students’ life, where they encounter tough situations on a regular basis.

People who are disciplined are also more likely to be able to focus on long-term goals and solutions rather than seek instant gratification.

This means that disciplined individuals will work hard to meet goals and they will continue to push forward even when working on tedious, boring or otherwise difficult tasks at their learning stages.

Not giving in to something is considered a sign of strength and leadership, and it’s commended and respected at all levels of societal interactions, especially at higher level tasks.

Self discipline can help students to achieve.

Self Control : Which helps them to adhere to the given task, therefore, they can get better with their efficiency.

Time Management: They can spend their time in doing productive works, can control their tasks and complete in advance, therefore they will have more time to spend with friends and family.

Reduces stress levels : It helps them to elevate their productivity levels and quality parameters as they have more time in hand. Also they can spend their time sharpening their skill sets by reading blogs, article, and reference books related to subjects.

One becomes a source of inspiration to their friends and peers. They look up to them for all the inspiration they need.

There are a lot many qualities and aspects required to taste success in our life. But of all, the quality of discipline supersedes as it starts from the ground level shaping our entire lifestyle and personality to the core.

Hence it is vital to realize and follow the importance of DISCIPLINE not only at schools but also during our personal endeavors, as it is easy to inculcate at their young age.
