“There is no garden as beautiful as childhood”
Children’s Day this year was celebrated across the city virtually due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. Besides the grave social, economic, and health impact on people around the globe, the COVID-19 pandemic’s silent blow on children of all ages is profound. But in spite of all these odds, Children’s Day was celebrated in little fairy with a lot of vigour and enthusiasm, virtually. It was definitely not the same as regular celebrations but the teachers went out of their way to use technology and do the best they could in the times of pandemic. We may not be in the physical space but are connected digitally. Teachers recorded their motivational speeches, sang songs, played games, recited poems etc., all this was live-streamed by the teachers on 14th November in their respective classes.
The Principal, Sr. Mary Alice beautifully explained the students how they need to take up personal responsibility and learn about personal growth and metamorphically stated that children are the light in this world. She also focused on the fact that real education enables us to handle any situation peacefully, finding the good, even in worse situations. She blessed the students and their families, quoting the famous adage,” There are things which you cannot buy which also includes childhood days!”. Students appreciated the creativity of the teachers amid the ‘New Normal’. The programme had a series of interesting and exciting events all planned meticulously for complete entertainment. It was an effort to give back a little, what the children had been deprived of, after the outbreak of this pandemic.
Last year, Greta Thunberg, a Swedish climate activist, took the world by storm after she gave her speech on the importance of active participation to fight climate change. Thunberg is proof of the fact that children are aware of the changes around them and wish to do their part in making the world a better place.

The students of class VII, VIII and IX visited The National Science Center, Delhi as a part of the educational tour this month. The National Science Center is a science museum that is engaged in popularization of science among the students. The aim of the visit was to develop the science awareness and scientific temper among the students.
The students were first invited to the auditorium for a short program on optics, and later they explained them about the functioning of India's Thirty Meter Telescope. A short quiz was also held in which the winners were awarded small gifts.
The students were greatly excited about the exhibition halls, especially the galleries 'Our Science and Technology Heritage'. Besides these, there were small but attention grabbing exhibits and a maze 9f mirrors which gives illusionary effect which invoked much interest in students. The students thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the plethora of exhibits left them spell bound. They were really drawn in the magical world of science and were greatly inspired. The trip was an enriching experience for all.
Joy to the world
