      UKG ICE-CREAM PARTY – 10 MAY 2019

      Ice cream, ice cream, in a bowl,

      Ice cream, ice cream, nice and cold,

      Ice cream, ice cream, good to eat,

      Ice cream, ice cream, what a treat!

       

      Enjoying a cool treat on a hot day is a favourite summer time activity. To get some relief from the heat of the Delhi summer day our kindergartners enjoyed an ice cream party on 10 May 2019 at school.

      Stirring their taste buds they enjoyed the delicacy with their classmates, teachers and Ayah didi. After having their delightful cup of ice cream, they danced to some peppy music and merrily sang songs on summer. They also indulged themselves in colouring activity and had their colourful paper ice cream cones displayed in the class. The video on how ice cream is made added to their high spirits and they learnt about the various ingredients of ice cream. The puzzles on vegetables and fruits helped them to gain understanding about seasonal food. They also gathered information regarding healthy eating habits and good hygiene during their hearty discussion at circle time.

        VISIT TO BUTTERFLIES NGO (XI-E)

        “Education and essential life skills enables children and young people to lead better and more independent lives. If knowledge and experience are passed on, a sustainable and self-perpetuating effect is achieved that allows families and whole communities to progress.” 

        28 students of class XI-E visited the Butterflies NGO, an initiative to help Street Connected Children, on 7th May 2019. The students were taken to the Presentation room there, wherein they were addressed by the Founder, Executive Director of Butterflies NGO, Ms. Rita Panicker. A presentation was shown to the students that highlighted the various aspects about the NGO and details of the programmes run by the NGO.

        In this world where people work for monetary benefits, where greed and unethical practices have taken place above the ethical social values, there are many who are trying to stand out and do something apart from gaining monetary benefits. This NGO works for children’s upliftment and welfare. Children who are connected to the streets, homeless children crisis and children on substance use are the many focuses of the NGO.

        Butterflies has employed various policies and schemes for upliftment of these children. These policies include ‘khazana’, which is a financial management programme for children. They have also introduced mobile education for children. Butterflies also has a school for culinary and catering. This school has graduated many chefs who are successfully in many reputed hotels.

        The students of our school enjoyed watching the presentation and asked about the various ways in which they can help the children. The students then gave the gifts that they had brought for the children there as a sign of care and compassion. This included gifts such as stationary items, few books, clothes, bags. The children in the NGO were very excited and happy on receiving gifts. They also showed their drawing files and other notebooks to our students and our students appreciated their work.

        The NGO is like a safe heaven for these Street-Connected Children. Interacting with everyone present there the students took back a lot of knowledge and values. It was an enlightening experience for all those who attended the same. It was a great learning opportunity and the students would like to engage in more such visits to increase their knowledge as well as help the society.

              Report on Visit to Mother Dairy

               

              Educational tour provides students with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices. An industrial visit to Mother Dairy, Patparganj, Delhi was organized on May 9th, 2019 for students of class XI B and XI C. 

               This plant deals in production of about 10 lakh litres of token milk(out of 31 lakhs of total milk) and other dairy products distributed in Delhi & NCR on daily basis.

              The students got excited and curious after reaching at Mother Dairy plant. They were directed to a conference room where they were welcomed by Engineer-in charge Mr. Pillai. He gave a presentation on the working & vision of the company. He gave a brief introduction of White Revolution Movement led by our former Prime Minister Shri.Lal Bahadur Shastri to provide an uplifting growth & a transparent system in the milk production in our country. He also demonstrated about the milk processing stages (1.Cleanisation, 2.Homogenisation, 3.Standardization 4.Pasturization) with the help of PPTs. This was a great way to learn about the milk production process in such a renowned plant and to get exposure about the industrial conditions. The students also learned about how milk is collected from the corporate farmers, strictly undergoes 23 quality control tests (mainly comprises of adulterants, temperature, taste, fragrance & weight).Then how this processed milk is transported using thermally isolated milk tankers, and how all of these were installed with wireless GPS System to get alerts in case of emergency conditions. After the question and answer session, they finally got a chance to visit the factory. 

              The students were shown some adulterant tests, cleaning of milk transport tankers & large SILO containers (each with 1 lakh litre capacity). They gave the information about importance of milk(mainly for teenagers & working class) and its composition, about all the milk varieties (token ,toned, full cream & skimmed milk) based on its fat and SNF (Solid not fat) and how these are to be used by different age group peoples. They took the students to a room where fully automatic human operated cleanser, homogenizer and pasteurizer machines were present. As collateral benefit students got to see humongous solar dishes which rotated with the suns direction. Finally on the completion of tour, the appetite was duly taken care with some refreshments.

                Workshop on First Aid held for Class IV students (09.05.2019)

                At the most basic level, first aid is the initial assistance given to a victim of injury or illness. Unfortunate as it may be, the fact remains that at times an injury may take place in our surroundings.

                In order to keep our students prepared for such an incident the TAFS junior wing organized a First Aid workshop on Thursday 9th May 2019 at the Activity Hall. Conducted by a team of four doctors from Maulana Azad Medical College hospital. This workshop proved to be an eye opener for the over 200 students from Class IV who attended it.

                 The session was very interactive and was peppered with several anecdotes from the experiences of the doctors. The students were given a run through of the basic first aid to be administered in case of an emergency. Right from running cold water on a burn to first washing an animal bite, before going to the hospital, everything was explained to the students in a very engaging manner. With the help of student volunteers a demonstration was given on how to put a splint in case of a fracture and a live CPR was also conducted. The exhaustive PowerPoint presentation helped the students to understand better the first aid given for different situations which could arise in case of an emergency.

                The workshop which lasted for well over an hour is sure to be something which the students will remember and be able to implement in case such an occasion arises.
