To inculcate sportsmanship and team spirit among the young ones, the sports week of the Primary was held from June 15 to June 17, 2022. The children were divided into ten groups ranging from Classes I to V where every group got an opportunity to participate in all the games planned for the sports week.

The games which were highly enjoyed by the young children were basketing the ball, Hockey dribbling, Table Tennis, Balancing the ball, Rolling the ball, and Football dribbling. The students were delighted to play a variety of games on the playground such as football - shooting the goal, running to understand their own strengths, balancing the marble with a spoon, and the circle game where a hula hoop was passed from one student to the other and the passing of the basket, up and down.

On the last day, the children had marvelous fun going through various hurdles which started from the Tarzan swing, crossing the hurdle, swinging its way, crossing the squares, jumping the stairs, and balancing on the log.

The Sports Week was a wonderful experience for all the children of Primary as each one was seen participating with lots of enthusiasm and love towards sports

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." This adage was evident in the activity-based learning applied from Primary to Secondary as the students were involved in creative activities to manifest their understanding of the concepts taught during classes

We are greatly delighted that the school has bestowed the opportunity to the children of the Primary to begin with the Furtado Music Classes. All the children are very much excited to take music lessons and we can see their interest being taken by them during the classes as well as their enthusiasm to learn the different genres. One good thing about music is, when it hits you, you feel no pain!

It was heartwarming to see the students of Class VI, VII, VIII, IX, and X participating in practical activities in the school's laboratories under the guidance of their teachers. This was particularly special as it was another indicator of life thankfully returning to normalcy, after two years of online learning during the pandemic.

The two teams of excited boys and girls of class VIII enthusiastically participated in the Lawn Tennis friendly matches which were held at Hotel Ravine on May 24. Mr. Javed (Owner of Ravine Hotel) greeted the students warmly and motivated them with words of encouragement. It was indeed a treat to the eyes, to watch our teams display a wonderful act of comradeship and sportsmanship on the field after a gap of two years due to the pandemic. The staff members also got their hands on the field and showcased their skills. Heartiest congratulations to all the participants for their brilliant performance. Bravo!!

The junior youth of Class IX were the pioneers to embark upon a spiritual journey from July 5 to July 10, 2022, to participate in the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Camp to study the book, 'Drawing on the Power of the Word
The study sessions pondered over the concepts of meaningful words, achieving one's goals and cooperation, friendship, spiritual and material progress, selfless service, unity, and youth declaration. They did interesting activities of analysing the name of their native places, painting letters to make meaningful words, drawing emojis of happy faces, and memorised the quotation, "Let each morn be better than its eve and each morrow richer than its yesterday." Contemplation over the concepts of unity in the family, true friendship, true education for spiritual and material progress, knowledge is the heart of progress, and community gathering was a few concepts discussed. Interesting activities like preparing the family tree and filling it meticulously, discussing the role of each member of the family, delivering short speeches and reciting wonderful poems on true friendship and true education, and enhancing their vocabulary and grammar skills by engaging in a series of exercises were few more activities. As a part of vocational skills, the junior youth prepared beautiful flowers using colour paper. The concepts of the role of media especially newspapers that are indeed the mirror of the world, propaganda, sensationalism, power of the word to attain material and spiritual progress, and community gathering were discussed in the next session of the camp. They were engaged in eloquent and creative writing activities like analysing the articles from the local newspapers, writing articles on local news, preparing skits and advertisements on propaganda and sensationalism, and enhancing their vocabulary and grammar skills by engaging in a series of exercises.

To conclude the days in the camp the junior youth groups reflected on the lessons studied during the camp. They presented the skit on knowledge that should be accompanied by humility, recited the quotations memorised during the study sessions, played the game of unscrambling words, and asked the audience to make meaningful sentences using the words suggested. The anchors appreciated the volunteers answering the questions by giving them a small token of love as a gift. They presented a wonderful skit on knowledge is the heart of progress. The students recited the quotations memorised during the study sessions and had an interactive session by conducting the family tree activity and asking the audience to speak about the qualities to be acquired by each member of the family. The junior youth delivered eloquent speeches and recited a wonderful poem by Edgar Guest. They presented their youth declaration focusing on the virtues of unity, equality, and striving hard for the betterment of humanity.

Cherishing the joyous moments of camaraderie and learning the junior youth and the animators boarded the buses to return to their destination, Panchgani. They didn't forget to beseech the Almighty for His bounties and favours before settling in for breakfast. By His grace, although high alerts were announced everywhere, not very heavy showers were witnessed enroute. All's well that ends well!
