The School Weekly - 11th August 2014

Monday, 4th August: The week saw heavy showers from Wednesday to Thursday. At long last students’ wish was granted! The Principal declared this term’s first rainy holiday! Lowest temperature in Bali was 21°C and highest was 29°C humidity was at 80%. The whole week sky was overcast with nimbus clouds.
Monday, 4th August: Students saw a huge change in their lives when from Monday onwards Class XII put up a school cafeteria as their Economics Project, during Break. They bought eatable and drinkable to open this shop. The new canteen nicknamed “Fabeteria” was supposed to be inaugurated by the Principal but such was the excitement of the students and Class XII that they began their business before Principal could arrive. But the Principal also joined the line over looking such a slip. The project is Mr. Kanik Goyal’s brain child. He feels this opportunity will teach them business skills. Hands-on experience gives practical knowledge of business. This is a very new feature in class room teaching in Fabindia!

Besides this, march past and dance practices took place. Each day of Fabindia is unique and wonderful! In march past students learned how to “Look Front” and how to Look sideways” how to hold the flag at half way mast while passing in front of the Chief Guest.

Tuesday, 5th August: Admin Office underwent a change. Now Mr. Bharat Ojha sits in the Store with Mr. Kuldeep. Admin Manager’s Office has been shifted to the first room in the Administration Block. The Admin Manager’s Office has been converted into a meeting room, will be used for visitors and parents. 

Report of “Fabeteria”

Today our Class XII commerce started a canteen as a project, in the school called “Fabetaria'. The canteen started was with the objective of providing the school affordable food. The work was allotted to every student of our class and everyone did their job perfectly and efficiently. The first day was very successful because of the hard work of our class-such was the team work tht it seemed anyone hardly worked!
We all tried to do our job effectively. Fabeteria provided chocolate, chips, packed juices, etc, student really enjoyed our canteen. Each and every student maintained accounts. Our Class Teacher instructed us how to prepare files for accountancy as well as business management. The capital of our canteen was provided by school, but school has allowed profits of the Fabeteria to be shared among students. 
Though this Fabeteria was planned to run for a week but seeing its response, we have decided that we may continue it for a month some other time.
We have liked our project and hope to learn more from it the next time. We want our school to feel proud on us. We are happy to contribute towards the happiness of our school.

Wednesday, 6th August: During the assembly and sixth lesson a peacock was seen dancing, the scene was so fascinating that students  watched it with great rapture and surprisingly without any instructions were more quiet than ever. It changed the atmosphere of the playground from a noisy one to a peaceful one. But it was sad that we could not capture it in our camera. 

Saturday, 9th August: The whole day senior school practiced march past and dance. While Class I and II made beautiful Rakhis and displayed it on their class corridor display boards.

Class I to V participated in Inter House Role Model Competition. Dressed as country’s best known leader students seemed to live their roles with passion in their voice matching that of the freedom fighters, actors, political leaders, parents and teachers, their dialogue  delivery was fantastic and they looked cute parading their style.

Value of Time
Somebody has said very correct that ‘Time and Tide never wait for anyone’. Time is not a thing which we can buy from anywhere or it is not that which we can borrow from someone. It is more valuable than money. Life is also a time period within which we live, so it is also valuable or it can be said that it is the most valuable thing we cannot think even the starting and ending of time.
When we face troubles, we feel pain and we say time is bad. When we are happy we celebrate something and we say time is good. Both the times, time is responsible for good and bad but it’s not true. Time does its work. It provides them good or bad situations, which they blame on time. Time is not a person which can be called good or bad.
The value of time is infinite. No one can buy it. Everyone have it. Time never finishes.
T- Too
I- Infinite
M- Many
E- Endless

भारत  अनेक  राजाओं / बादशाहों  के  अधीन रहा | पहले  अफगानों  ने  लूटा, फिर  मुगलों  ने  और बाद  में अंग्रेजो  ने  लूटा  और  अब  यह  भ्रष्टाचार  हमें  लूट  रहा  है | यह  हमें  अंदर ही अंदर खोखला करता जा रहा है | हम इसे रोक तो  सकते हैं पर इसे रोकना नही चाहते | सभी सोचते हैं कि यदि थोड़े पैसे देने से काम बनता है तो इसमें हर्ज़ ही क्या है | भ्रष्टाचार की शुरुआत बड़े बड़े नेता से नही हम हीं से शुरु होती है | भ्रष्टाचार को बढ़ावा देकर हम अपने ही देश के साथ गद्दारी कर रहे हैं | यदि आज इसे नही रोका गया तो आगे चलकर यह एक भयंकर बीमारी का रूप ले लेगा जो लाइलाज होगा यानी भ्रष्टाचार इतना बढ़ जायेगा की इसे रोक पाना असंभव हो जायेगा | अतः हमें छोटी छोटी चीज़ो से शुरुआत करके भ्रष्टाचार को रोक कर अपने देश के प्रति कर्तव्य निभाना होगा |
