      MAKING OUR SCHOOL AN ANGER-FREE ZONE (06-24 JAN 2020)
      JUNIOR SCHOOL

      It is very important for a child’s environment to be an emotionally safe zone. At TAFS we strive each day to help our students not only to be aware of their emotions, but also be able to identify their own as well as other’s emotions as well as appropriately reacting. The process of this emotional learnedness is a part of everyday curriculum at our school.

      Anger being an effective emotion, its exhibition plays an equally important part in a child’s growing years. With the objective of ‘Joyful Education & Holistic Fitness’ some interesting activities were conducted, from 06 Jan to 24 Jan 2020, in order to help students learn effective tips & tricks to manage their anger. 

      Signage boards displayed at the most visited alley of the school stating positive anger management quotes helped expose children to positive thoughts. Anger Management workshops were conducted by the school counsellor for all the students of classes UKG to V. Students discussed and shared their worries, experiences and learnt ways of handling their emotions. ‘Joyful Environment at home and at school’ was the theme for the painting activities conducted for students of classes III, IV & V which gave them a creative medium to express their feelings. Appreciation cards were awarded to students who used effective anger management techniques in order to calm them down in stressful situations. Breathing exercises are being done as a part of morning assembly, regularly, for positivity & calmness. 

      These activities helped provide an environment of holistic happiness & emotional learnedness. We will continue to help our students in this journey of learning to manage their anger.

                                          MEASUREMENT WEEK  AT JUNIOR SCHOOL (13-17 JAN 2020) 

                                          Mathematics is an incredibly important subject which is used in all walks of life.

                                          To encourage young learners to get involved, to dispel math phobia, to create a love for the subject and to perceive the connection of mathematical concepts with real life situations, ‘Measurement Week’ was celebrated at TAFS junior school. This was a fantastic opportunity for students of classes I-V to engage in Math activities, designed to challenge their thinking and develop their math problem solving skills.

                                          Children worked in small groups and used cuboidal and cubic shaped objects to measure the length and breadth, and use it to find Area and Perimeter. Students of class I used crayons to measure various objects in the class. Students also measured the dimensions of the school stage, and classroom using metre scale and 1m ribbons. We also calculated the BMI of each child after measuring their weight and height. They learnt the significance of maintaining the right weight for a healthy body. It was great fun for the students to measure their bags, water bottles etc. and record these measurements. The celebration also saw a lot of mathematical games like ‘Array Capture’ game and other fun games.

                                          These week long activities generated intense interest in the students and it was indeed an interesting and educational experience for them.

                                            HINDI POEM RECITATION COMPETITION – CLASS IV (16.01.2020)

                                            A Hindi recitation competition was organized on 16th of January 2020 by the junior wing for the students of Class IV. All students participated in the preliminary round of this event during the last week and 30 students were shortlisted for the final round.

                                            With the 71st Republic Day just a few days away, the theme of the competition was chosen as ‘Love for one’s Country - Patriotism / Courage/ Bravery’. Some of the poems recited were - gk¡ bl ns’k dk oklh gw¡] fla/kq esa Tokj] eSa Hkkjr dk toku gw¡] 'kfDr vkSj {kek] gS ueu mudks] psrd dh ohjrk] flikgh dh vkRedFkk] deZohj

                                            With the zeal of a true patriot, the enthusiasm of the participants, the audience and the judges had to be seen to be believed. At such a tender age, the students displayed an amazing amount of passion while reciting the poems. The atmosphere in the room was electric and the audience was left spellbound by the performance.  This pride for one’s motherland will surely hold these students in good stead in the years to come.

                                            The winners of the competition are listed as follows –
