Early Years marched with confidence into the month of March. The month was packed with multiplicity of learning and fun engagements to keep the students motivated, engaged and enthusiastic to try out something new, like this awesome painting by Kabir or a perfect picture being clicked by Abhisha for 'ph' photographer clicking spring.
Sports Fun Fest: The Online Sports Fun Fest was organised by the PE department to have fun and make the children aware of the importance of playing games, movement to music and calming yoga. They had 'Cushion PE drill' fun games, Om session, Balloon Bounce, and loads of fun laughing and moving to music. It made the children have fun together with their friends. A thank you video clip to show gratitude came from the enthusiastic students, right after the session.
All the students had a wonderful interaction time with their parents and the teacher. The little 'VIPs' had all the attention from their teacher and the parents, it was of course, different from our usual SLC; which means a long walk for the parents to visit all the learning areas, being led by their child to listen, look and appreciate their handwork. This time, the teachers had a glimpse of the environment provided by each home and how beautifully the learning can happen with the collaboration between the parents and the teachers. The students spoke about their learning, favourites and what they enjoyed the most and shared their secret Superfoods that kept them healthy and active too. The students showed a snapshot of their learning to the parents at Student Led Conference, an opportunity for them to talk about themselves with confidence and application of communication and social skills. The perfect example of the learning communities!
Celebrations: The students had short sessions on the significance of Holi and Easter introducing them to the different celebrations and the stories associated with the same. The festivals are colourful, celebrating new beginnings and new life. The students made cards, craft for Easter and Holi.

PYP4: The summative Task for the Unit on 'Advertisements' under the Transdisciplinarytheme 'HowWe Express Ourselves' was to Create an advertisement of their own school using different ways and elements of advertisement. All the students were enthusiastic to advertise their own school. They really did a wonderful job. This summative task proved that all the students love their school, love the conducive environment for their growth, love the joy and laughter of school life, love the caring and approachable facilitators, love all the amenities and last but not the least, they all are profoundly proud of the beautiful landscape of the campus. It is indeed a treat for us to see them blooming as proud Gurukulians. Read More
A student-led conference is a meeting with a student and his or her family and teachers during which the student shares his or her portfolio of work and discusses progress with family members. The student facilitates the meeting from start to finish. This year on March 18th and 19th PYP of Vishwashanti Gurukul successfully conducted their very first online SLC. The students worked diligently on their presentations and took their parents on their mesmerizing learning journey. They put up their best work in each subject and reflected on why they chose that particular piece. They were trained well to give a confident and effective presentation and collected big smiles and a loud applause.
