Middle school workshops
Posted June 29, 2020
Walking a Mile Further to Impart Comprehensive Learning
To broaden the horizon of the young and zealous learners, the Middle School has just completed a series of distinct sessions on a variety of topics for the students to explore.
A workshop was arranged for Class VIII on June 18 and 19,2020, on the legendary work of Shakespeare by an extremely well read English faculty. The famous characters of Shakespearean plays were introduced. The playwright’s sonnets and quotes were mentioned explaining the significance of some. The genres of various plays like comedy, tragedy and so on were discussed. It was explained how Bollywood was also inspired to render his plays into movies. The young audience was taken on a virtual tour of Shakespeare’s home at Stratford on Avon, England. At the close of the workshop a short quiz was offered by the resource person in which the students participated very enthusiastically. The students were inspired to take up reading of Shakespeare’s plays. The workshop was wound up with the famous quote from the play, Romeo and Juliet, “Parting is such sweet sorrow that I’ll say goodnight till it be morrow.”
'The Magic of Vedic Mathematics' was yet another initiative for the students of Class VI on June 18 and 19, 2020 held in two sessions after the school hours. It was facilitated by an experienced Mathematics faculty. The facilitator introduced easier and faster ways of calculating and discussed multiplication of the numbers with the same base and different base. The joy of achieving correct answers to complicated calculations within seconds, was accompanied with the feeling of accomplishment. As the session was drawing to an end, the students had developed confidence in solving multiplication of larger numbers with great ease!
A special Social Science workshop for Class VII was on June 19 and 20, 2020, to provide an insight into the Preamble of the Constitution of India. With the help of senior Social Science faculty members, the students gained knowledge regarding many civic terms such as sovereign, secular and fraternity. The guest speakers enlightened the students to assist the young minds and hearts to become more responsible citizens of the country.
‘Health Awareness and Hygiene’ was another theme of a series of different workshops. The girls of Classes VII, VIII and IX were addressed by a renowned gynaecologist, Dr Bharti Bodhe, on June 27,2020. The students of Class VI were also guided on ‘Health Awareness and Hygiene’, through a counselling session facilitated by Dr. Radha Rost. Dr. Shantanu Abhyankar , the renowned gynaecologist and counsellor, addressed the boys of Class VII on June 30, 2020 and of Class VIII on July 1, 2020. Dr. Bodhe gave an engaging talk on an array of topics ranging from self-care during the pandemic to understanding the benefits of physical hygiene and fitness. The respected doctors also provided knowledge about simple home remedies for minor ailments, stressing upon the importance of exercise and physical activity to build up a stronger immune system. Dr. Radha's talk was based on the writing of Abdu’l-Baha. ‘And although bodily cleanliness is a physical thing, it hath, nevertheless, a powerful influence on the life of the spirit. It is even as a voice wondrously sweet, or a melody played: although sounds are but vibrations in the air which affect the ear’s auditory nerve, and these vibrations are but chance phenomena carried along through the air, even so, see how they move the heart. A wondrous melody is wings for the spirit, and maketh the soul to tremble for joy. The purport is that physical cleanliness doth also exert its effect upon the human soul’. The facilitator brought forth the value of cleanliness, not only of the body but also of the soul by giving an example where the body is compared to the chariot, the soul and the intellect to a charioteer and the mind to the reins. The senses are controlled by the mind and when they are controlled well, it is like a good charioteer with trained horses. Our soul and body have close connection and hence it is important to take good care of the body as well as the soul. Physical health impacts spiritual health and vice versa. A few short stories related to health and hygiene were narrated to the students. On a very friendly note Dr. Shantanu Abhyankar addressed the boys of Class VII. Introducing adolescence to them, he explained with precision the physical and emotional changes in boys during this period. He also praised the school for arranging these sessions, else the students of this age might seek information from misleading sources.
These special sessions for the students on varied topics were very well received by the enthusiastic students. Apart from providing regular academic learning, New Era once again walked a mile further for its dear students!
