‘Collaborators’ is a specialized initiative of the staff of the Senior Secondary Department wherein each member shares a soft skill/a tool used in classroom teaching, with the department. This peer learning-sharing venture continues to equip educators with the latest technology. Mr. Dhirender Sharma and Ms. Sujata Sharma conducted a session on ‘Hybrid Teaching’ and ‘Google Earth’ respectively.


In order to teach the concepts of Science in an interesting way, a new initiative ‘Newspaper in Education’ has been started in Class V. Important topics, such as ‘Pollution’, ‘Global Warming’ etc. are explained more explicitly by the teachers through sharing and discussing the relevant news articles with students. This initiative has not only helped inculcate the habit of reading among the students, but also improved their general awareness.


The Primary Department has initiated the Financial Literacy Project for its students with an aim to sensitise them to the value of money, making them aware of its journey and evolution through trade. Worksheets have been designed and shared with students. A Financial Literacy Manual is being created.


TED talk videos are shown to the students of Class II during the Class Teacher’s Period every fortnight to discuss topics such as ‘Importance of Reading’, ‘Importance of Family’, etc. During the discussions, students share their experiences and opinions.

A Laughter session is organised for the children of the Pre-Primary during their Talk Time. The teachers and the students dress up in creative and funny attires, perform humorous acts and make the classrooms come alive with joy and merriment.


To instill the feeling of pride for our country’s rich and varied culture, the students of Classes VI-IX prepared a digital monograph for different states of our country as a part of a group activity. The students compiled comprehensive write-ups, giving detailed accounts of the topography, historical significance, monuments, culture and cuisines, art, dance, music, festivals, and important personalities such as artists, freedom fighters, scientists and musicians of the states assigned to them. Working in groups enabled students to develop the competencies of communication and collaboration, apart from inculcating in them a sense of honour for their country.

To make textual learning more vivid, graphic and enjoyable, CBSE has launched the Graphic Novel Project. A group of teachers from our school is working on  converting  chapters of 10 different subjects into  fascinating graphic stories.


The more words you know, the more clearly and powerfully you will think…and the more ideas you will invite into your minds.’
With the aim of enriching the vocabulary of our students and honing their communication skills, an initiative ‘WORD OF THE WEEK’ has been started across all departments. One age-appropriate word/idiom/phrase is shared along with its meaning, pronunciation and usage with the students on a weekly basis. The students and all subject teachers are encouraged to use the word as often as they can and make it a part of their active vocabulary.


Being sensitive to the fact that the circumstances were challenging, and  many families were terribly affected by the pandemic, the Holiday Homework across all classes was shared with the students on a weekly basis. The teachers virtually met the students every Monday, during the Summer Break, to brief them about the homework shared for the following week and guide them on the same.  This was much appreciated by the parents and enabled the students to work on their assignments themselves.


As an initiative towards strengthening the bond with the students, especially at a time when the students are not able to meet their peers and teachers physically, the Class Teachers across all classes meet five students by rotation everyday for 20 minutes at the end of the school day. During this period, the teacher asks them about their well-being and anything/any subject they need help with. This quality time gives a platform to the students to express themselves freely and form a personal connect with their teachers.


During the summer vacation, the students across all classes were given an access to a Digital Library to read any book on their tab, PC or smartphone. The parents and students really appreciated this initiative.

Several activities are organized on a regular basis to keep our students across all classes connected with the world of books and motivate them to read more :

  • Online Library Classes
  • Story Telling Sessions by renowned storytellers
  • Reading Day/Week
  • Virtual Book Fairs
  • PDFs of the books by some of the renowned authors like Enid Blyton, Ruskin Bond, Roald Dahl are shared with the students. Online quizzes and worksheets based on books are attempted by the students.


Reading builds many important foundational skills, introduces vocabulary and helps children concentrate better in their studies. In keeping with this idea, Virtual Book Fairs were organised for our students to give them a chance to choose and buy their favourite books


‘Dancing stimulates the mind, body and soul-That is the Miracle of Dance.’

When you dance, it releases dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins, neurotransmitters and hormones in your brain that are commonly linked with happiness and well-being.With an aim to help the students rejuvenate and be stress-free during these tough times, Western Dance Classes have been started in Classes I and II. The same are held once a week for each class. The students have been participating in these classes most enthusiastically.

During adolescence, imagination is boundless and the urge for self-perfection is at its peak. In order to ensure holistic development of children and to bring in the element of fun in learning, Western Music Classes have been initiated in class IX. Students are thoroughly enjoying and look forward to these sessions as they provide the much needed outlet in these challenging times


To help students express their views freely on various issues, the TED Club of the Primary Department has initiated ‘Happy Morning Mantra’, a weekly video chat show run ‘by the students and for the students’.
