My Mother 
She is the one who makes me smile,
She is the one who helps to make my project file.

She applies on my face, cream,
And fulfills my dream!

I am thankful to God,
As she cares for me a lot!

She makes me drink milk,
And gives me medicine when I’m ill.

She is everywhere where I go.
She is a bow and I an arrow.

Earth is nothing without Sun.
So am I without her.

दूरदर्शन का अर्थ है जो दूर के दर्शन करवाएँ। इसके कारण हम आज एक कमरे में बैठकर पूरी दुनिया की जानकारी ले सकते हैं। यह संचार का एक महत्वपूर्ण साधन है। यह न केवल मनोरंजन के लिए बल्कि विभिन्न प्रकार की जानकारियाँ भी प्रदान करता है। दूरदर्शन से हम फ़िल्में, गाने, धारावाहिक, समाचार इत्यादि देख सकते हैं। किन्तु इससे एक हानि भी है कि हम एक दायरे में सिमट गए हैं। यदि इसका सही उपयोग किया जाए तो ज्ञान प्राप्ति का महत्वपूर्ण साधन बन सकता है। लगातार देखने से आँखों पर अनुचित प्रभाव पड़ सकता है। जैसा कि कहा जाता है अति सर्वथा वर्जयेत अर्थात आवश्यकता से अधिक नुकसानदेय होता है। जरुरत के अनुसार उपयोग करें तो विष भी औषधि का काम कर सकती है। अतः हमें इसका उपयोग सोच समझकर आवश्यकतानुसार करना चाहिए। यह संचार का एक महत्वपूर्ण साधन है क्योंकि दृश्य श्रव्य साधन है। आजकल यह सुलभ भी है।

Teacher of the Month
In order to recognise new teaching ideas and practices, the school has begun to recognise its teachers through "Teacher of the Month". The Staff meets at the end of the month and shares any new methodology in class teaching that they tried during the month and how it worked for them. Once all have shared, in a very democratic way they decide which teacher's work deserves to be appreciated and unanimously select the "Teacher of the Month".

Our congratulations to Mr. Suresh Negi for being our first Teacher of the Month (August) for 2014-15!
