A dream doesn’t become reality through magic, it takes sweat determination and hardwork

To welcome the new Academic Session with open arms and to instill the air with immense positivity, the first assembly at St. Xavier’s High School, Gurugram was conducted with great colour and vigour by the talented Xavierianson April 1, 2019. The students took an inspiring topic “Mighty Oaks grow from Tiny Acorns” to set the induction right.

The assembly began by seeking theLord’s blessings. The students came forward and joined hands together to display a harmonious synchronization. The Lord’s Prayer followed the news update and pronunciation.

Daksh Mittal and Sujal Kumar recited excellent poems in Hindi and English emphasising the importance of dedication and commitment in the work one performs. The assembly focused on making regular effort every day for the accomplishment of big dreams.The students also performed a well-coordinated dance performance followed by a musical symphony.

The assembly was well appreciated by the school principal and the Headmistress- Middle School. The principal also updated the students about the school rules and the norms regarding the leave.

“Believe in your dreams, they are given to you for a reason”

 

    The all-inclusive education provided in St. Xavier’s High School is premised on the ageless proverb, “A sound mind resides in a healthy body : Mens sana in corpore sano’’

    To provide hands on experience and to enrich knowledge,St. Xavier’s leaves no stone unturned and persistently organizes workshops, seminars, conferences and symposiums for the students as well as the teachers. Following the trend, in the month of April 2019, a workshop on the theme ‘A to Z of Empathy’ was organized for the students of grade V to VIII.The resource person was a renowned psychologist from Fortis Hospital.

    She enlightened the students of the fact that having empathy is a key ingredient to becomethe best person one can be. It helps us to get along better and to feel better. It is, seeing the world through another’s eyes.  She guided the students and encouraged them to be empathic. For the same, theyshould think beyond themselves and their own concerns. And once they are able to see beyond their own world, they'll realize that there's so much to discover and appreciate!

    The workshop ended with a thunderous applause and students had a great time being a part of it!

      “The human species thinks in metaphors and learns through stories.”

      Being a part of any workshop is like being part of a really big family. On April 06, 2019, twenty educators from St. Xavier’s High School, Gurugram got an opportunity to participate in one day Training Programme on ‘Intelligence and Wellbeing’ conducted by the esteemed Professors and Counsellors of Jindal Institute of Behavioural Sciences at O. P. Jindal Global University, Sonipat.

      To explore ways to integrate Multiple Intelligence theory to curriculum, a number of interactive activities were conducted. Wherein, it came to life that intelligence is not numerically quantifiable, rather it is exhibited during a problem solving process or a performance.

      The educators were briefed about the Multiple Intelligence theory with the help of a power point presentation. The eight major areas of Multiple Intelligence namely: Linguistic, Naturalistic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Bodily - Kinesthetic, Logical-Mathematical, Musical, Spatial were talked about.

      ‘The Education that treats everybody in the same way is the most unfair education.’ It was strongly emphasised that here is a great prominence of assessing the multiple intelligence in all the students. It can be done through simple observations, maintaining school records, interaction with parents, students etc.

      Dr. Tithi Bhatnagar conducted a session on Coping with Stress and understanding Subjective Well-Being for effective relationships. Dr. Manjushree Palit talked about the best teaching practices and Emotional Intelligence. Gardner’s ‘Theory of Multiple Intelligences’ encourages educators to start thinking of intelligence as a set of many different abilities and skills that help an individual learner comprehend, examine, and respond to different types of content. The educators were told that the Teaching aids should be only prepared keeping in mind all these intelligences.

      The workshop concluded with an interactive activity for teachers to help them understand the application of the Multiple Intelligences in the classroom. Overall, it was a highly interactive and application-based workshop. 

        Taking forward the flagship project Our School Our Family, the school had organised Intramural Basketball on Saturday, 06th April 2019 for fathers only of our students of Grades PreNursery to X from 6.30am to 8.15am. The adrenaline rush and excitement in the participants was boosted with the moral support and presence of their family members during the friendly matches. It was indeed a stress buster time for parent participants who are looking forward to such engagements.

          “The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful then a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”

          When we give someone a book, we don’t give him just paper, ink, and glue, we give him the possibility of a whole new world. To spread the joy and happiness to the deprivedand to supplement the resource pool of books, from 3rd April 2019 to 9th April 2019, St. Xavier’s High School, Gurugram had initiated a ‘Books Donation Drive’.

          This edge, not only supported the vision of reaching out to the underprivileged kids to help them study, but also, reinforced that books are a unique portable magic and they need to be made a part of the environment a child grows up in. 

          A totalof 1440 books were donated by the parents. Along with contibuting towards the society, this initiative also intended to enthuse reading habits and literature appreciation in children.

          Proud Xavierians have rightly proved, ‘A true bibliophile knows the value of a book and most would go to any extent to share the joy of reading!’ On April 12, 2019, a group of 15 Xavierians along with 2 teachers visited an NGO to donate these books. This emotion of kindness, this experience of giving will forever remain threaded into the lives of the students.
