Peace Celebration - My Home is the Home of Peace...
Posted October22, 2020

Peace-building over the long term requires the transformation of society, a transformation based on justice, involving education for all, the alleviation of poverty and the abandonment of deeply rooted prejudices.

Bahá’í International Community, 1993 Mar 15, Women Peace Process

The endearing students of the Primary Section were regaled by the profound concept of Peace Education on September 21, 2020, with a charming and unique celebration held on a virtual platform. This day which is also celebrated as the International Day of Peace or World Peace Day, found the young ones dressed in their best finery, meeting each other with a spirit of oneness and bubbling with exuberance. Each class had their own way of celebrating peace, replete with wonderful moments when the children displayed their inner beauty by hugging their younger siblings, sharing a bowl of popcorn and juice and swaying to melodious tunes. In their frilly frocks, they appeared like little elves who could beat the best dancers in the world! It was also heartwarming to see them stand up and sing soulfully in a synchronised manner even though they were participating virtually!

On this occasion, the black boards of all the classes were decorated with beautiful drawings, posters, and craft work. A discussion was held on Mr. Tim Rost's contribution to peace classes in the school and why peace is consequential to the entire humanity. Various topics such as Good Listening and Not- Listening, Active Listening with Empathy, Inner and Outer Peace were discussed at length to promote better understanding of the concept amongst the young minds.

The children who are new to the school also become aware of Peace Education and its importance. The golden rule “We should treat others as we ourselves would wish to be treated” was explained and memorized. Quotations were explained, such as, 'We should have good thoughts, good words and good deeds to be peaceful' as well as “O SON OF BEING! Bring thyself to account each day ere thou art summoned to a reckoning; for death, unheralded, shall come upon thee and thou shalt be called to give account for thy deeds”. The children sang and danced to the tune of songs such as ‘Love Your Fellowmen’..., ‘Love, Unity and Peace’, and “Be a fountain...”. They also drew different pictures related to the concept of Peace,depicting the emotions : Sorry, Sad, Angry and Happy; images portraying peace and resolution of conflicts; symbolic pictures of doves, of their own families leading peaceful lives and that of the World Peace Day. They made creatively decorated take away cards with quotations to be gifted to their families. The game ‘Simon Says’ added to the joie de vivre of the event. A video enunciating the importance of a peaceful life brought home the concept further to the minds of the children.

The young orators won all hearts by sharing what peace meant to them. While some said that peace meant that all the members of the family lived together while others opined that peace was achieved when all family members prayed together. They expressed that they should not hurt anyone, should make use of the Magic/Golden Words, must help their parents/ elders and obey them. A thoughtful child expressed that the best way to bring peace was to be polite with everyone.

The celebration was concluded with a feeling of harmony making the children feel elevated and strengthened in their resolve to bring peace to this ravaged world.

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!
