An inter-house Wall Art Graffiti competition was held on 3rd September at G G International School. The students created beautiful wall art based on the theme- Each child is important. A healthy competition was organized to boost up their creativity expression and elicit in them a sense of responsibility.

REPORT- ORGAN DONATION TALK

 

 

Don't take your organs to heaven with you.  Heaven knows we need them here. 

 

 

Don't think of organ donations as giving up part of you to keep a total stranger alive.  It's really a total stranger giving up almost all of them to keep part of you alive. This was the motive behind GGIS wanting to drill in the mind and heart of the students by organising a talk on the importance of organ donation was conducted in school on the 4th of July 2016.

 

 

 

       

 

 

The speaker- Dr. Prashant Borate, form Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital Mumbai, the eminent speaker for the day, enlightened the students about the benefits of organ donation.

 

He enumerated upon the various kinds of organ donations and also discussed the conditions in which such donations take place. Most importantly, he discussed about the reasons why people hesitate to go ahead with this noble act.

 

He presented statistics which revealed the sorry state of donations in India exhibiting a poor percentage of 0.08% as compared to Croatia, topping the world with 36.5% organ donation.

 

 

                                                                

 

 

Speaking on the issue he further stated that a brain dead patient can actually save as high as eight lives, and therefore insisted upon the fact that people should consider organ donation whether in case of brain dead or natural death.

He beseeched the students to spread the message and inspire people to take up this noble task for a more sensitive society.

Field Trip to Rail Museum

 

At G G International School, we believe that students should be exposed to a variety of activities and field trips as it is an essential tool for hands-on learning. Students can improve their interaction skills with peers and others, organizational ability, observation, learn to be independent and imbibe invaluable insights into life from the environment around them.

 

With this thought, students of classes II and III were taken for an educational trip to the Joshi Rail Museum, Kothrud.

 

The students had a very adventurous experience and enjoyed the journey to the museum. After reaching the location, the students were carefully taken from the buses to the museum.The museum hosted working models of various types of trains. The model trains on exhibition ran through a miniature city. The layout included 65 signals, fences, lamp posts, flyovers, etc. that could be controlled manually as well as through a computer. Along with train modelling products, structures such as railway stations, freight depots, shades, factories and warehouses are also displayed.

 

This field trip provided a great learning experience to our students.

  Report on Proverb expansion and story writing competition.

 

“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.” 
                                                                                                                                                  ― Louis L'Amour

 

Writing is the primary basis upon which your work, your learning, and your intellect are judged. It expresses who you are as a person.It makes your thinking visible. It also helps you refine your ideas. Keeping all these points in mind, GG International School conducted an Inter house story writing competition for the primary level students.

We as a school believe in the overall development of a child. It is very important for every child to get a platform where he or she can express their feeling and ideas by writing it in their own sweet way. To promote this , classes III, IV, V were given three different proverbs- ‘Think before you speak’ , ‘Honesty is the Best Policy’, ‘Look before you leap’ respectively, on which they had to write a story. All the students participated and wrote various stories relating to the proverb.

 

The Judges for the activity, Mrs.Varsha Puri and Mrs Tambhekar(Parent Judges) were  highly impressed by the writing format and the use of vocabulary by the children. The judges believed that writing is one of the most important skills in any language and appreciated our school for conducting such activities for our students.

The winners of the competition were: Class III Jagruti S and Bhavya from Abhimanyu house and Dhruv house secured the first position. From Class IV Prajakta M from Abhimanyu house and from Class V Bhumi Pandhare from Abhimanyu house secured the first position.

Report on Inter house Debate Competition

 

 

G G International School has set the benchmark for conducting activities in such a way that the students not only enjoy but also learn a great deal from it. With the same perspective in view, the school organised a debate competition for the students of class IX and X. The topic of the debate was- 'Should one year of community service be made mandatory for students'. 

 

The representatives of the various houses spoke vehemently on the issue and came up with their perspective regarding the same. They cited reasons and supported them with suitable examples from real life, to justify their stand.

 

The judges for the day, Ms. Svanai  Laddha( C A) and Ms. Ashwini Kshirsagar(Trinity Speech and Drama Trianer) were deeply engrossed in the ideas of the students, to the extent that they had to ask a tie breaker question in order to reach a concrete conclusion.

 

They adjudged the Eklavya house as first and Shravan house as second. Speaking on the occasion they praised the school management and principal for designing such innovative topics which are so socially relevant.

 

The students of class IX ans X, who were an audience to the show, thoroughly enjoyed the event.

GGIANS VOW TO CELEBRATE ECO FRIENDLY GANPATI FESTIVAL

 

The nature of our future depends on the future of our nature.”

 

             GGIS has vowed to go green this ganpati festival and follow the ancient traditions that prescribed that people make their own idols, worship them and then immerse in water.

 

           A coordinated effort was made by the Lokmat group and the school to spread the awareness of celebrating an eco-friendly Ganpati festival this season. To facilitate this concept  and for saving the environment,a two- day workshop was held for the students, teachers and parents to make the ganpati idols with natural clay(shaadu mud).The workshop began with highlighting the practices during the festival that are detrimental to the environment. Clay kits were provided and the Ganesha idols were made following the step-by-step guidance provided by the instructor, starting from making the basic structure, modelling the 4 hands, making the face, the trunk and lastly, adding ornaments and other details to the idol. A number of creative idols were made and left for drying. On the second day of the workshop, these idols were painted with non toxic colours.   

 

The workshop concluded with hightlighting that after  paying the Obeisance to the lord, he is to be submerged in indoor water container instead of Rivers or Seas to avoid water pollution. This water to be later used to water plants that explains the main motto – ‘What Nature has given to us, we are giving it back to the Nature ‘
