Say No To Polythene
Cleanliness was an issue very close to Mahatma Gandhi’s heart. He once said, “If we have time to lean, we have time to clean.” As per the motto of this year Environment Day, our school promises and promote “SAY NO TO POLY BAG”.
Realizing well, the damage that plastic bags cause on the environment, the little green crusaders of the school initiated “Say No to Polythene Bag” campaign in different societies on October 2, 2018, besides creating awareness among the people about the ill-effects of plastic bags on the environment. Students spread the awareness with their mesmerizing dance performance. The campaign aimed at sensitizing the mass towards the need to protect the environment from plastic and to promote love for the environment among people.
Best Out Of Waste
"Creativity, as has been said, is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality.Hence, to think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted." --- George Kneller.
In order to make children aware of uses of waste material and to give them a lesson on reducing waste to save our future, a ‘Best out of Waste’ class activity was organised for students of classes I to V on 24 September, 2018.
Mind-blowing, beyond expectation, fantabulous ideas were demonstrated by students. Right from waste bottle, bottle cap, newspaper every waste material was used and the result was a many items made out of waste.
It is one such craft which follows this environmental friendly principle and at the same time creates useful and picturesque objects out of waste products. Little hands and imagination minds came together in a creative burst of energy during the activity.
3D Learning-Evoke,Engage And Evolve
Gurugram Global Heights School took their educational curriculum a notch higher by 3D virtual classrooms and interactive learning experiences in all the subjects for students. It is no secret that students of today live in a multimedia world where they use video as their primary form of engagement and communication. The school has planned 3D learning software as a part of their curriculum, which enables them to keep up with the changing times and make the students capable of coping with changing trends. Aside from the obvious benefit of it being engaging and fun (which is why virtual reality is currently making waves in the gaming industry), it really helps to deliver key learning points and deepen a child’s understanding of a subject. The teachers recapitulate the topics covered in the classrooms through virtual media which makes the topic more interesting. Virtual media helps in engaging students by bringing the topic to life through 3D animation by making the lesson a journey, not a lecture. The fun and interesting nature of the third dimension maintains a student’s focus. 3D classrooms have broken the conventional learning criteria and have made the session more interactive and engaging.
