The children of Class 3 prepared wonderful videos in February, 2021 to celebrate the season of new beginnings. Their feeling of elation was apparent with the arrival of spring as they sang, recited, danced and played various musical instruments.

‘GIFTED’

The last two Saturdays of February, saw the final activity of the academic year, 2020-2021, in the Primary School. The activity was named ‘Gifted’ as we feel our children, certainly are. They were asked to recite, sing, dance or play any musical instrument.All of them made us proud with their individual performance. The change from a shy youngster getting used to the online platform, to a supremely confident one, was heartwarming for the teachers and of course Ratna Ma’am and Sunitha Ma’am. Here we would like to mention our parents and thank them from the bottom of our hearts for being with us and supporting us right from the beginning of this difficult year.

Humans are a storehouse of wonderful ideas. Say you have an incredible aspiration; how do you go about achieving it? You need a plan, a blueprint to guide your actions. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are such a blueprint, designed to achieve a better future for all. The 2030 Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. Inspired by this strive for sustainability, our team has centred it’s presentation around one of the most pressing issues today corresponding to SDG 6: “Clean Water and Sanitation”

This presentation embodies the idea of “Change Begins at Home” and portrays how each of us just doing our own little part in conserving water can have an enormous impact on the quality of life of the people around us, as well as worldwide. Watch along to find out how one drop is equivalent to one life. As we step into this new decade amidst difficult circumstances, one must remember, we must strive to be the change we want to see in the world.

No-Fire Cooking October 2020

The lockdown has indeed startled us with a lot of surprises! Who would have thought that children who are usually known for their tantrums when it comes to eating healthy food, would be seen dishing out a range of delicacies from their very own home laboratory- the kitchen. Donning the Master Chef’s hat , the children of Class V were seen coming up with a variety of gastronomical delights- be it sandwiches or cupcakes, smoothies or lip- smacking ‘chaats’ during the ‘no fire’ cooking exercise. But that wasn’t all. Through this exercise that was aptly named ‘Beat the Heat while You Eat‘, the children not only appreciated the efforts that go into the preparation of meals, but also learnt the lessons of independence and responsibility by handling the intricacies and challenges in the kitchen. We hope that the children are now encouraged to go into the kitchen more often and lend a helping hand to their parents.

X-Uberance: A Report

St. Xavier’s Collegiate School hosted their fest X-Uberance on 17 and 18 October on a digital platform. 700 students from 17 schools of Kolkata participated in the event. As the host school aptly put it, the fest embodied the spirit of ‘Far But Together’.

X- BITORKO– the participants from Garden High School were, Sheersha Banerjee((9A) and Anuratna Banerjee(9E) who bagged the 1st position. The topic for the Bengali debate was, ‘মহাকাশ অনুসন্ধানে ব্যয় করা অর্থ দারিদ্র্য হ্রাস করার জন্য ব্যয় করা উচিত’ I X- MATE- Aniruddh Chatterjee (10 C) of our school checkmated his way to the 3rd position as he battled the opponents from 16 schools.

Our pupils participated in various other events. It was a great learning experience for them.

Crazy Kitchen Activity (Class III)

Click here or the image above to view the images…

Class teachers of class III organized a non-fire cooking activity in their respective sections just before the school closed for their Durga Puja vacation. The students made sweet and savoury food items during class with the help of their class teachers. It was held on the Zoom platform. The children had been informed about the required ingredients earlier. On the day of the class each child had arranged the ingredients nicely on their tables and were ready for the class to begin. No fire was used in the process of preparing the dishes. The students worked with excitement with their teacher as she showed them the process.

Class IIIA made Papdi Chat and Fruit Salad. Class IIIB turned out with an innovative Biscuit Pudding. Class IIIC came up with tasty Masala Sandwich. Class IIID also made a sandwich naming it Veg Sandwich. Class IIIE presented Fruit Dessert Cups. Class IIIF also made a dessert called Mud Rocks.

The children enjoyed making dishes on their own and relished them later too. It was a great learning experience for them which brought out their creativity and made them understand the value of food.

Non-fire Cook-In (Class IV)

Click here or the image above to view the images…

Pupils of Class IV took part in a Virtual Non-fire Cook-in organised in the month of October. All were dressed in aprons and chef caps. The children had all the ingredients ready. They followed instructions amid a lot of enthusiasm and did their work. Some of the items they made were sandwiches, ‘masala muri’, ‘papri chaat’, lemonade and ‘shikanji’.

Storybook Characters (Class V)

It is not often that you find Chacha Chaudhury,Count Dracula,Willy Wonka,Kadambini , Heidi and Red Riding Hood coming together.But that is exactly what happened in Class 5 when the ever enthusiastic students decided to add an element of excitement to their everyday lessons by dressing up as their favourite story book characters.

The exercise had a twin objective- that of entertainment and breaking the monotony of the lockdown as the children matched outfits and wore make-up while also instilling in them the habit of reading which seems to have almost become a forgotten habit in this virtual age. The children rose to the occasion by not only drawing lessons from the books but also putting their imagination to work by visualizing their favourite characters.

We applaud the efforts put in by the children and their parents without whom these characters would not have come alive. We hope that the children are now encouraged to spend more time to explore the fascinating world of literature.

However, fate was not as kind to the participants of Qurious (quiz) as the quiz team comprising Shubhrajit and Abhrajit Bhattacharyya with Monoshij Ghosh as reserve and coached by Ms. Nabanita Ghosh and Ms. Paromita Datta could not qualify for the final rounds despite a valiant effort.

Once the preliminary rounds were over, it was time for the final two days of the fest. After a short opening ceremony over a Zoom meeting, things started off in rapid pace, with the first competition being Battle of Brains – the chess event. The single player event played online over chess.com was well-matched and conquered by Aniruddh Chatterjee of class 10 C, who managed to secure the 1st position.

In the meantime, submission deadline for Brilliant Brushes i.e. the poster making event was around the corner. Dishari Chowdhury of class 10 B presented a beautiful display of vibrant colors conveying the message “If plan A doesn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters”. We sincerely appreciate art-teacher Mr. Subhabrata Nandi for helping us with the selection process.

We’ve all heard of the saying “the pen is mightier than the sword”. Well now it was time for the participants to prove it as Write to Ignite – the creative writing event, was underway. The team consisted of Pritika Paul of class 12 A for English, Anuratna Banerjee of class 9 E for Bengali and Nirjar Datta of class 9 C for Hindi. We would like to extend our gratitude to teachers Ms. Papiya Ghosh, Ms. Jayanti Roy, Ms. Arpita Mukhopaddhay Maiti, Ms. Saswati Mitra and Ms. Sharmistha Gorai Biswas for helping us in the auditioning process.
Pritika Paul secured the 1st position in the English category.

However, our dose of art for the day was not yet over. The submissions for Raas Ranjini – the event dedicated to Eastern Dance were coming through rapidly. The participants: Sneha De (10 E), Rajanya Dhar (9 A), Ahana Majumdar (10 B), Sheersha Banerjee (9 A), Samriddhi Ghosh (12 B), Shreya Sutradhar (11 C), Krityali Sau (9 D) as dancers and Soumili Hazra (9 A) as video editor, led by teacher Ms. Meghna Guha Mazumdar presented a beautiful display of talent. Their theme – An ode to the sheer courage and strength of women. The dancers, with the help of our video editor centered their performance around the likes of Razia Sultana, Rani Laxmibai, Kadambini Devi and other celebrated icons of womanhood. Besides the praise and appreciation of even their competitors, they also won the 3rd prize.

The first day of the fest concluded with GPS This – the treasure hunt event. This event, exclusive to the school representatives, tested the intelligence, logic and problem-solving skills of those in charge of leading the school team. Garden High School fared quite well, placing 3rd in the race to finding the final solution.

The second day was not as event heavy on our students, with only two scheduled events during the day for the participants.

The first among them was War of Wits – the debate competition. The participants Rannvijay Roy of class 9 A and Richik Chakraborty of class 12 A, helped throughout by reserve speakers Sheersha Banerjee of class 9 A and Sanjeevani Sen of class 12 B as well as teachers Ms. Trina Das Gupta, Ms. Ronjini Bose Correia and Ms. Crystal Fang, went head to head with schools not just across the country, but across the globe. Unfortunately, in spite of an excellent effort the debate team were unable to place in the top 3.

The team for western music brought to this journey a different melody and joy through Synthesize – the western music event. The group comprising Olivia Bagchi and Sarthak Dey as vocalists, Sayan Bhowmik as guitarist, Shounak Das for keyboard and composition and Aatmashri Sanyal as video editor put up an excellent performance. The team fused beautifully the songs My Melancholy Blues by Queen and Perfect by Ed Sheeran, under the guidance of teachers Mr. Anupam Halder and Mr. Gourab Sen.

With colours, literature and melody; wit, knowledge and intellect the arduous but fulfilling two days came to an end. From creativity to intelligence, ready-wit to knowledge, the students were faced with all sorts of challenges. However, with their steady will power, booming confidence and well-honed skill, our participants rose above all challenges and answered all questions that were asked of them through the course of this fest.

Garden High School would like to congratulate every participant for their contribution to the fest and can say with confidence that it has been a thoroughly enriching experience for all of us. We also appreciate all our students who have burnt the midnight oil and have worked tirelessly for days and weeks for the cause of the school team. Special thanks to all teachers involved in the fest proceedings and The Heritage School for providing us with this opportunity.

Regardless of the results, we believe all students have received important lessons in teamwork, collaboration and communication besides learning something new about their skill. The fundamental prize of all competition is not just the awards you win, but the knowledge you gain from it.
