A Thematic Activity on Terrarium: Garden in a Bottle
Posted June 03, 2024

“The Almighty Lord is the provider of water, and its maker and hath decreed that it be used to quench man's thirst, but its use is dependent upon His Will. If it should not be in conformity with His Will, man is afflicted with a thirst which the oceans cannot quench.” ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

To create an awareness about the value of water conservation amongst the young ones, on May 30, 2024, the Primary Department held a thematic activity titled “Water is Life, Let’s Value It!” It was conducted by the Mumbai-based Adventure Team and was called “Garden in a Bottle,” centred around the theme “Water Sustains Life.”


The students learned that terrariums are ideal for small plants that do not thrive in typical home environments. When properly planted and positioned, terrariums provide a novel way to grow many plants with minimal care. They offer a practical method to keep plants indoors with little maintenance.

To understand better, a terrarium is a transparent container, often made of glass, in which plants are grown. It's like a miniature greenhouse, allowing light to enter while maintaining a controlled environment for the plants. Terrariums are typically used for small plants that do not thrive in the normal home atmosphere. They are popular because they require minimal care, making them ideal for indoor gardening.


The bright countenances were introduced to various water bodies, the water cycle, the availability of water on Earth and the importance of water conservation. In line with this theme, the students participated in an activity where they created beautifully decorated gardens inside bottles. These gardens require less water and low maintenance. The plants used were indoor air-purifying varieties studied and reported by NASA. Each child created a “Garden in a Bottle” and took it home as a small step toward environmental conservation.


The lovely blossoms were thrilled to grow their own plants in the terrarium workshop, which allowed them to connect with nature, learn new skills and create something beautiful. These activities helped the little ones to boost their own creativity and provided them with a sense of achievement.

The Energetic and Cute Primary Sports Week    
Posted June 03, 2024

"Sports, in general, have had an important and estimable function in life and will inevitablyin future be regarded as the indispensable factor for intellectual and moral growth.”

 - Shoghi Effendi

On May 23, 2024, the Primary Sports Week commenced to instil team spirit, sportsmanship and camaraderie among new and existingyoung students. The activities began at the football turf (futsal), where the mentors organized fun drills and exercises focusing on dribbling, shooting, and motor skills. Subsequently, students moved to the basketball court for a colourful drill led by coaches, emphasizing hand-eye coordination.

The following games were planned for the young ones on May 24, 2024:

Basketball Shooting with Hula Hoops:The students aimed to accurately shoot into the hula hoops, enhancing their hand-eye coordination.

Adventure Race: This race featured various obstacles and hurdles, providing both enjoyment and learning opportunities.

Hockey Dribbling:The students dribbled balls in a zig-zag pattern using hockey sticks, testing their motor skills.

Ping Pong Toss:The young players aimed to toss ping pong balls into baskets, with multiple chances to succeed.

Balancing Act with Agility Ball Roll Race:The sweet participants balanced objects on their heads, striving to avoid tripping.

Football Match on Futsal Turf: A thrilling football match saw participation by Classes IV and V, with Classes I and II actively cheering as spectators.

The excitement throughout the events was palpable, with young athletes playing each game with enthusiasm and joy. Each activity contributed significantly to the physical and mental development of the students, embodying Joe Phillips' sentiment: "Sports is the greatest physical poetry."

Exploring Wood Art Painting
Posted June 03, 2024

“When the Light of the Sun of Truth inspires the mind of a painter, he produces marvellous pictures. These gifts are fulfilling their highest purpose, when showing forth the praise of God." Lady Blomfield, The Chosen Highway

On Thursday, May 23, 2024, the Amphitheatre was buzzing with creativity as the students of Class VII explored the world of wood art painting!

Guided by their beloved art teacher Mr. Pravin, the students learned this fascinating art form step by step. They started with basic techniques and moved to more advanced ones, receiving hands-on demonstrations along the way. This ignited their passion for painting on wood. With brushes in hand, the students transformed plain wood pieces into beautiful landscape paintings. The workshop encouraged them to express themselves and explore their artistic abilities, with each brushstroke telling a unique story. The students' enthusiasm was clear as they eagerly participated, adding personal touches and creativity to their artworks. This workshop was about more than just painting; it was about learning, growing, and enjoying the creative process.

The combination of learning and practice made a lasting impact on the students. They finished their artwork by adding quotations and spiritual qualities learned in their moral classes, giving their creations deeper meaning.

The Art Workshop on Wood Art Painting was a valuable and fun experience, nurturing creativity and leaving lasting impressions on our young artists. Kudos to more masterpieces and moments of inspiration!
