Grandparents are the backbone of a family, the root of our lives; their importance is inevitable in our lives…..
To express their love and gratitude towards their Grandparents Kindergarten children of Scottish High International School celebrated their Grandparents Day on 15.9.16 with full zeal and gusto.
Teacher’s day is a very important day for every student as they get to thank their mentors for all the hard work and effort they put in to shape their personality. A special assembly was conducted by the students of Kindergarten of Scottish High International School on 5.9.16 to make their teachers feel good and special. Children also witnessed teachers participating whole heartedly in the various games and dance competitions.
Exposure to international learning is all about experiencing, learning about and from, engaging with and learning to be at ease and comfortable with ‘others’. With an intent to be open-minded, respectful and mindful of the fact that other people with their differences, can also be right, the Early Years PYP students of Scottish High International School celebrated the International week from 22nd to 26th August, 2016, with full gusto.
While some explored the culture and traditions of different countries through food eaten and festivals celebrated in different countries, others were encouraged to share their experience of visiting a popular monument and what it stands for. Others were seen delving into global issues like Pollution, Water conservation and as young learners processed information shared by one and all, they gave their invaluable inputs for making Earth a better and greener place to live in for all and pledged to take necessary steps and advocate for the same. Some chose to delve into the values and leadership qualities of eminent personalities across the world, while others probed into the significance and importance of family for all and how one can stay connected with family members living in faraway places.
The young Highlanders also were seen exploring different dance forms and understanding the fine nuances of the techniques used in those; in the games class while learning about the popular sports played across the world they also delved into the fact that to demonstrate the spirit of sportsmanship and to be caring towards each other on the field is what the stuff champions are made of and in the music class they discovered how music has no language and unites the world.
Culture does for the world what the only culture can. The month of July saw Scottish High transform into a social science laboratory as we held a SAARC-themed exhibition.
Food, charts, map, clothes, performances and songs, each specially created to represent the unique nature of every SAARC nation, came together to create a special day. The highlight was a magnificent 3D model showing each nation in full glory with detailed topography, information about all the SAARC offices and political borders.
Few celebrations are complete without a skit and our senior students, not ones to fall behind, enacted the 18th SAARC Summit on the topic of ‘Deeper Integration for Peace and Security’. If you thought that was the icing on the cake, think again. The show was entirely organized by the students from classes VI-XII under the guidance of their teachers.
One small step for highlanders, one giant leap for mankind! A great day deserves a spot of paraphrasing after all.
The beauty of the world lies in the diversity of the culture and its people….
Respect for other faith and inculcating religious tolerance is one thing that we aim at striving in Scottish High. Growing up to be global citizens of the world, the young Highlanders of Kindergarten displayed attributes of being open-minded while conducting a special assembly on the occasion of the festival ‘Eid –Il-Fitr’ on 5th July’16. They shared about the significance of this festival, a day that marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. The little ones through a role play and a dance performance not only demonstrated the way people greet each other, what they wear and eat on this special day but with their actions helped in creating a spirit of peace, love and brotherhood!
