World Tourism Day- Celebrating Diversity

The students of MYP-2B presented a very well collaborated and creative assembly on 22.09.2016 with the theme being ‘World Tourism Day’.

The assembly portrayed different tourist attractions and cultural diversity of different continents. To spice things up a little bit, students representing each continent put up different performances: Jingle on Australia - created by the students, on stage - drawing on Africa, a song on Antarctica, a dance on North America and Europe, and finally a Quiz on Asia. Thus, students expressed different ideas and information creatively through varied modes of communication.

Then the students reflected on the learner profile and ATL skills.They understood and appreciated other cultures and personal history around the globe.

This was followed by a well-designed movie of the service activity.The assembly came to an end after the students showcased their zeal and enthusiasm.

Saturday Sports - PYP!

Sports is an integral part of learning at CI. The young learners hone the skills required to play different sports as we provide them with several opportunities. One of this, is participating in Saturday sports, where they choose any one game from cricket, badminton, table tennis, skating, football and lawn tennis.

In today's lesson, the learners were introduced to the basic skills, rules and regulations of the chosen sport. They started with basic warm up and then were seen enjoying and happily playing their chosen sport.

PYP Parent Info Session!

Parent Info Sessions are a great way to strengthen the Parent Teacher Relationship and open doors to better understand the school's philosophy and intricacies of the programme. At CI we believe in the holistic development of our students to shape them as tomorrow’s global citizens. Understanding of the programme, helps the parent to gain an insight about their child’s learning at school. This helps them support their child at home, making the right learning environment for the child. Today’s session gave a platform to the facilitators to share the Concept Based Learning and Assessments in PYP. This was followed by demonstration of the various sports techniques. 

"Blood donation drive" Service activity initiated by #MYP 5 Students

“To the young and healthy it’s no loss. To sick it’s hope of life. Donate blood to give back life.”
Students of MYP-5 actively participated in a self-initiated service activity wherein they first created awareness regarding importance of blood donation among common people and today they organized the blood donation camp in Choithram Hospital, Indore. Many individuals including college students, Teachers, Parents and others actively participated in blood donation. Students enthusiastically motivated all the donors and had successfully collected the blood units from 40 donors which had helped greatly in increasing the availability of various blood groups in the blood bank of hospital. The service activity reflected caring and responsible behavior of students.
The initiative taken by students was well-appreciated and encouraged by all the donors as well as the staff at Choithram Hospital, Indore because the blood is red gold in time of saving a life.

Community and Service by MYP 4

On 17th September students of Grade 9 went for a field visit to the garden in the choithram hospital campus along with the teachers-in-charges Ms.Badhuli, Ms.Harsha and Mr.Nand Dani .This visit was an unplanned one since previously planned gardening visit behind the tennis court area was cancelled due to rains.The resource person Choithram Group Horticulure Head Mr.Devender Singh Rana led the students to the garden in the Choithram Hospital campus.After having introduced himself, with his vast experience, genuine love for plants and a supple sense of humour he started revealing many unknown facts about plants. He explained many important gardening terms such as planting, cutting, plants without seeds, air-layering, moss grass covering. Later, he cut a small branch of Woody tree which is a seed-less tree and demonstrated the procedure of air-layering in order to be able to grow its off-spring. Though this visit was unplanned and short, it was a great learning experience for the children. It was quite motivating and informative for gardening lovers.
