The School Weekly - 23rd August 2015

Founder's Day Issue
Weather remained dry for most of the week, except that school felt a rising discomfort due to humidity and rising temperature. Though it has been raining in East India, rains at Bali are a far cry! Lowest temperature was 25°C and highest was 34°C. Humidity is at 71%. It seems as if monsoons are over. Though the sky was covered with nimbus clouds the whole week, yet there were no rains. Wind blew at 18 km/hr.

Saturday, 22nd August: Picnic was organised for students of Class II-XII. They were divided into two groups. First group -Class II-V went to Ranakpur and second group - Class VI-XII went to Thandiberi. They played games and went for nature walk and trek. All students returned home by 4:00 PM safely.

The students of Class VI- XII went to Thandiberi for a picnic. They were divided in seventeen groups with a teacher escort to supervise and instruct them. In all two hundred students, seventeen teachers, principal and three peons went. Thandiberi is 57 kilometers from Bali. It is a wildlife sanctuary, perfect place to trek and be in the lap of nature. It is the most appropriate place for trekking, picnic spot and peaceful place for meditation. When the students reached the place they were excited to trek and see the lush green beauty of nature. They walked through the running water of the brook and started their three kilometre trek up Thandiberi. The bus had dropped the students to a point where buses can’t drive. They returned to an open ground by 12.30PM where lunch was served. Before lunch students visited the dam which was overflowing with water. It was a beautiful sight and looked like a waterfall which tempted some of the teachers and senior students to bathe under the fall. At 1.00PM they had lunch and then the students played antrakshri. Refreshments were distributed to them. The students walked down 1km at 2.00PM to board their buses. They had fun all through their journey singing songs. The day ended with great fun and joy. -Bharti Rao/ Faculty
It feels free to be a bird,
So lovely are the two wings,
Feathery and soft touch,
Cozy and snuggly shrug!
Splendid is the feeling,
Flying high in the sky,
Everything looks tiny and little!
To fly with other birds,
In symmetry and line,
Is heavenly experience!
I wish I could be a bird in all my lives!
