On the 18th of august, 2017 about 30 solar panels were inaugurated at the campus. The students were given demonstrations and explained how the panels work. We were told about how this step would help us save large, amounts of electricity. We thank Mr. Roshan Gandhi Forouhi and Principal Mrs. Abha Anant for providing us with such facilities that aim at the making the school better.
Members of eco club celebrated 'WORLD LION DAY' by speaking about dangers faced by lions these days in the school assembly. They also explained the ways to save and preserve the endangered animals. They had made rakhis for trees and tied them to the plants in the Science park of the school. They had also made posters which were displayed on soft boards in school. They had also made paper bags which were distributed to the vendors in the market outside the school, which included food stores, stationery shops and in the school canteen.
The World Lion Day was celebrated today (10th of August) in the assembly to educate and create awareness among the younger generation about the plight of the Lions in the contemporary world, as they're declared one of the endangered species. Students put up the whole show with the help of a powerpoint presentation followed by a quiz based on the majestic animal with the theme "KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND HEART STRONG". Afterwards they gifted beautiful lion masks,written quotes on lion on it.
Rakshabandhan is a festival to celebrate a sacred bond between brothers and sisters. On this occasion when millions of sisters will tie rakhi to their beloved brothers, we are tying the thread of love and affection to the beloved brother trees and vowing to protect them...and make our bond stronger!
Instilling scientific knowledge and logical acumen in the children should start at the earliest possible age. It will help children question and understand various processes around them and their environment in an intelligent fashion.
Keeping this thought in mind, we the Pre Primary section of City Montessori School, Gomtinagar 1 observed and celebrated “Science Experiment Day” On July 2nd 2017. This day kicked off with a usual dedicated board on the said theme, put up in the lobby. Later it unfolded by setting up various experiments in the lobby to sensitize the children with real world scientific information. To name a few the following experiments were performed in front of the children, which made the children awestruck and spellbound.
Creating a Glass Harmonica with water in bowls.Showing the concept of -heavy items sink and light float using a coin and a thermocol respectively.
Air pores help in floating was shown by using an orange that floats when it has the peel and sinks when it is unpeeled.Air has weight was shown by deflating a balloon hung on a stick which causes it to tilt.
Filtration was shown by using a filter paper.The concept of primary colours was also demonstrated and how they mix to give various shades of secondary colours.Vinegar and baking soda when mixed evolves Carbon dioxide which was used to inflate a balloon.
All the experiments were very eye-catching and made an indelible mark on the tiny brains of the students, which was precisely what we wanted and strived towards.
To create awareness and a sense of responsibility for the conservation of ecology among the children and society, the Pre Primary section of City Montessori School, Gomtinagar 1 observed and celebrated “Global Tiger Day” on July 31st, 2017, although it was scheduled for July 29th, 2017, but that being a day off for the students it was celebrated today i.e. Monday July 31, 2017.
Tigers naturally exist and thrive in the forests and jungles. If their habitat is protected and conserved it will naturally translate into their well being .Therefore the children were educated about conserving the green cover on earth which would subsequently transform into conservation and preservation of the wild life on the whole and tigers in particular. Poaching and killing of tigers for their skin for aesthetic purposes was also brought forth as a concern and the students were told to mitigate that as much as they can by boycotting goods made directly from tiger skin and other body parts.
The children made tiger masks in the class as part of their activity of the day and coloured on the sheets specifically designed to mark the day. A dedicated board stood tall in the lobby to assert the message it conveyed. The assembly as well reverberated with the theme.
As always we were able to pass on a socially relevant message in a picture perfect manner which is what CMS is known and stands for.
Van Mahotsav celebrated in CMS Gomti Nagar Branch.Planting of trees done by principal ma'am & ecoclub members.
Because of the shortage of time, we couldn’t perform our skit also on 24th April (Earth Day- 22nd April), so we had performed our skit on 25th April in the morning assembly!
It was really a good time while we found the matter for the skit, practiced it, and fought funnily for getting longer parts to speak in the skit. We arranged for some flower pots, some props to use and many more things which made our skit more interesting.
It was really good to experience the feeling of not only speaking but also enacting on stage, and we enjoyed a lot speaking about our BEAUTIFUL NATURE!
Our skit was all about telling people to save their environment, by not cutting trees, saving animals and not overusing fossil fuels. So actually we spread the message of “Saving the Nature”.
