The School Weekly 26th April 2021

 News & Events

23rd April is marked as Earth Day; every year we celebrate it and we forget about our carbon footprints. This year as we were locked into our homes we witnessed pure air, clear sky, clear waters and thriving tree, birds and animals. This indicates to us how concious we have to be in consumption of the natural resources, to be able to leave a better world for the generations to come. Our students served the mother earth in different ways to mark their gratitude. Students planted trees, pledged to save water and reduce use of plastic.

Earth Day Celebrations

Arman Khan has been taking care of his birds:

मेरे पास दो कॉकटेल पैरेट है। मैं उनको समय पर दाना पानी देता हूं और रोजाना उनके पिंजरे की सफाई करता हूं। मैं रोज ध्यान रखता हूं कि उनके पिंजरे में कहीं गंदगी ना हो। वो पैरेट मेरे दोस्त है और मुझे देखते ही बोलना शुरू कर देते हैं। मैं उन्हें कई बार अपने हाथ से दाना भी खिलाता हूं, गर्मी के मौसम में मैं अपने पक्षियों को पानी का स्प्रे देता हूं जिससे उनको ज्यादा गर्मी ना लगे। उनको हमेशा पंखे के नीचे रखता हूं ताकि उन्हें गर्मी महसूस ना हो। मैं उनके साथ प्रतिदिन आधे घंटे खेलता हूं। अगर मैं कभी बाहर जाता हूं तो मैं उन्हें अपने साथ ले जाता हूं क्योंकि ये हमें नहीं देखते हैं तो खाना या पानी कुछ भी नहीं खाते हैं। इन पक्षियों को गाना सुनना बहुत अच्छा लगता है। जब मैं गाना चलाता हूं तो ये गाना सुनकर बोलना शुरू करते हैं और नृत्य भी करते है। ये पक्षी मेरे पापा और मम्मा के बहुत अच्छे दोस्त हैं। पापा  और मम्मा उनके पिंजरे के पास से गुजर जाए और उनसे बात ना करें तो वह जोर से बोलना शुरू कर देते हैं। जब वे उनके पास जाकर उनको बुलाते हैं तो वे शांत हो जाते हैं और दाना खाना शुरू कर देते हैं। मैं उन्हें हमेशा मटके का ठंडा पानी पीने के लिए देता हूं ।

Student Testimonials
When I did Yoga, I felt very relaxed. Yoga is good for our physical and mental health. It improves the strength, balance and flexibility of our body. Yoga gives us energy to work more and keeps our mood refreshed. My brother, my father joined me for Yoga session, we truly enjoyed the session and look forward to more of such sessions.

Session was so joyful and enjoyable. In this pandemic time, we need this type of activities, like Yoga as this will help us release stress and we will not feel under any pressure. This type of sessions gives us relief and happiness and our day starts very well. We did some breathing exercises and stretching exercises. It really made our mind calm and our body strong. I was feeling active for the whole day. I am grateful to Abha Ma'am for such a wonderful session.

Experiences of Extempore Competition

Participating in the Extempore Competition was a great opportunity. It was a fabulous interactive session with our friends and teachers. The competition promotes development of skills like fluency in speaking, strengthens our vocabulary, brings confidence and improves pronunciation. There were two participants from my house Jhanak Devda and myself. The topic I spoke on was, "Impact of Covid on the world and changes you see". The session was full of learning. But the question which was left behind in my mind is 'Why did only two students participate?' Every student should attend all online sessions. I am very thankful to my teachers for conducting this amazing extempore competition to engage us in the continued learning process.

I had a great experience from the Extempore Competition. The competition which analyses the awareness of the speaker to speak on the spot on any random topic. It was a very interesting and informative competition. Judges in this competition keep their eyes on fluency, confidence and knowledge and pronunciation of the participant about the topic.
One issue is that just a few students participated and I really wish that more students must participate in such competitions. We can resolve this problem by having house meetings, House Captains and Vice Captains should build team spirit among their house members.

Lockdown couldn’t stop my love for Crickets. During the lockdown, I have taken special care of my body fitness along with my studies while being at home, so that I can give my 100% whenever I get a chance to play a match back on the field. For this, I exercise daily in the morning and do a Sedo Practice of various shots of Cricket such as cover drive, state drive, on the drive, pool, score, etc.  Thus, I also practice my favourite sport; Cricket while keeping myself fit in the lockdown. 
Please do watch my practice video and share your views or even suggestions.

Someone to walk with
I never cried doesn’t mean that I’m never hurt,
I was hurt many times
But I never saw someone to give their shoulder
Everyone was busy showing their pride
I was badly broken from inside
I was having no one on my side
No one saw my sorrow which was too wide
That was the time when I needed someone
When I pleaded for someone
You always saw me standing strong
Never asked for help you thought I was strong
But unfortunately, you were wrong
I was having no one who meant to me
I was not alone but had fear around me
I wonder why in that fear no one found me
I’m just done by walking alone
I need someone to put my head on
I need someone not to walk for me but to walk with me till the end
I wish that person could be my close friend
All the moments together we spend
I need someone till the very end!!!

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves
Self-help is the best form of help. When we do our work instead of depending upon others, we align ourselves to receive divine help. It is better to rely on our efforts and then pray to god to help us succeed in our hard work. Many things are shaped by prayer, but not merely by prayer. Our attempts and efforts are very much essential and our prayers will strengthen our purposes. Our foremost responsibility as God's creation is to do our best in whatever we strive we do. Only then God lends a helping hand. But if we choose to be lazy, waiting for someone else to do our work for us, God will not help us in any way because he has given us the ability to help ourselves and we should be using it constantly. If we observe we will see that the most successful men are the ones who are the most hardworking as well.  We know success awaits those who work hard.  Hence, we can say that God helps but helps only those who help themselves.

Why are Human resources important for a nation?
Human resources must be considered both from the angle of assets as well as the liabilities connected with the attainment of economic development. For the attainment of economic development, proper utilization of both natural as well as human resources is very much essential.
Proper utilization of natural endowments and the level of production of national wealth depend very much on the extent and efficiency of human resources.
But too much population will again eat up all the fruits of development. Thus, from the point of view of economic welfare, it is quite essential to study human resources in detail. It should be equally stressed that human beings are the vital instrument of production and at the same time, fruits of all economic activities are rested on the betterment of conditions of living of human beings.
