The emotional feeling that one belongs to a classroom and School community is considered a necessary sign to the successful learning experience. In an era when traditional sources of belonging have diminished due to changing community life styles, the school plays an increasingly important role in meeting this need.
Every child should feel that it’s their school and it’s their duty to maintain the decorum. They should prove their belongingness through their well mannered behavior.
To make every kid feel that it’s their school and it’s their pride, an event – “My school My Pride” was organized on 12th Sep 2014 by the Pre Primary department.
The pre primary (UKG and Mont III) tiny tots went on a parade to all higher classes with Placards bearing slogans about how to behave in school and insisting them to maintain their classrooms and school surroundings neat. The higher class children were so thrilled and excited to welcome these tiny tots and patiently listened to them. Their loud applause showed how far they enjoyed the demonstration. This appreciation gave us a trust that they will surely have a change in them in developing their belongingness towards the school.
Junior Block (Mont I, II and LKG) children were involved in a mini cleaning up activity to make them understand that their school is their pride and it’s their duty to keep it clean. Children enjoyed this cleaning activity and they had a real competition in collecting the thrown papers and leaves from the ground (Unclean setup was created for this purpose) It was a wonderful scene to see the tiny tots with the gloves , collecting the unwanted things and throwing them into the dustbin along with their peer group.
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.

The teddy bear is one of the most popular toys for children, and holds a special place in many adults hearts, too. This loveable stuffed animal has a day all of its own, Teddy Bear Day!! The Superkidz celebrated this Day on the 9th and 10th of September. It gave a chance for the Superkidz to get their teddy out of the cupboard and make him the centre of attention. Superkidz of class 2 and above had an interesting story about their teddy to share with the other kids. Our tiny Tots from pre-primary and class 1 had a “show and tell” on their favourite Teddy. They played the game “Passing my Teddy Buddy”. It was a fun filled and giggly day for all our kiddies as we remembered our favourite Paddington Bear, Rupert Bear, Pudsey Bear and, of course, Winnie the Pooh. The days were filled with lots of amusement and all of them had a cuddly and huggable Teddy Day!!
“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life….a new dream?…. “
The reason we choose to fly kites is plain and simple, to have pure fun. It was also a real interesting learning experience for the students as these days kite flying game is not found much in the city.
The Junior Block children decorated the kites and made it fly whereas the Main block children (Mont III and UKG) were taught how to do and fly a kite.
It was a real fun and excitement to see the children make the kite fly. The determination of the teachers and kids finally favoured and the kites were made to fly. This made the kids really happy and they returned to the class with some satisfaction.

Learning is a continuous process and realizing the great responsibility; teachers are oriented by eminent personalities on various topics of interest off and on. One such program was organized on 8 September 2014 to celebrate Teachers’ day. Dr. L. S. Ganesh Professor & Former Dean (Students), IIT Madras addressed the teachers. He began by discussing the role of a teacher in this modern era. His profound knowledge was very obvious in the way he presented the session. He stated that nobody can remain indifferent to the upsurge of xenophobia and violence in the world. Overcoming prejudice, combating stereotypes and obstructing the emergence of intolerance are not going to be easy tasks; they are, however, areas for educational action. He added that every teacher ought to rise above difficulties, struggling for fulfillment. There were lots of crackles with wit which were worth admiration. He concluded the session with the reminiscence of his childhood in a humorous note.
This session awakened the teachers to recognize potential issues and identify ways to work with demanding professional challenges.

Reversal of roles at CPS on 5th September……
“ A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the world for others”.
Teachers’ Day is celebrated as a tribute to the valuable contribution made by teachers to the society by imparting knowledge and enlightening and shaping the career of students.
For students, Teachers’ Day is an occasion to pay reverence and gratitude to teachers for their selfless effort in shaping their career and enriching the education system in the process.
This was very true in the CPS Anna nagar campus. Every CPSite had a smile and a wish on their lips which showed their regards and respect for their teachers. This was a special day as the students swapped their roles for a day. The students of senior classes were given the allocations of teachers. The teachers took a back seat and the student teachers took over.
It was a nostalgic feeling for the teachers as the memories of their student life crept in. All the student teachers did a commendable job. The classes were highly enriching and interactive. This celebration at Cps was a proof of love and respect of the students towards their teachers.
A group of students also listened to the speech of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi who addressed teachers and students across the country on Teachers’ Day. To listen to his speech follow the link… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gxa2GpiFDFw
In Chennai Public School we made an elaborate preparation for the Teachers Day celebration. . The ceremony kicked off with a warm Teachers’ Day speech paying respect and thanking teachers for their contribution. This was followed by a range of colourful cultural programs, feast and other activities which made the event special and memorable.
Field trips are a regular part of many programs for young children. It serves a variety of purposes, such as exposing children to new things and helping children to see familiar things in new ways.
The first enlivening and exhilarating trip for the academic year 2014-15 was organized on 22nd August 2014 for the students of UKG and Mont III to Vandulur zoo. The excitement seen on the faces of the children became very evident when the bus started moving out the campus. The travel was filled with fun and frolic as they recited rhymes , spoke about the place they are going to visit. A magnificent tiger was the first one they saw as they traveled into the Zoo in a battery operated vehicle. Children were amazed by the sight of the white tiger playing with its cubs. As they walked they saw elephants, giraffe, bear, deer, monkeys etc. The reptile house with snakes and crocodiles was worth watching. The “oohs” and “aahs” from the children filled the air as they crossed by the peacocks, ducks and cranes.
Students came back to school with a fantastic experience and refreshed themselves with a fruit juice and snack served . They boarded their buses with rich experience and story to narrate to their parents.
Superkidz at Junior Academy are rocking!!! The kids have settled down finally and its fun all the way. The love and the camaraderie of the Superkidz has grown into a bonding relationship in a very short time. The enthusiasm in doing their activities has no bounds. The pride in them when they stepped on the dais to sing “Nanha munna rahi hoon.” for the Independence Day Celebration,…was in itself a battle to overcome shyness and stage fear…and bingo they did it!!! There was joy on their faces when they floated paper boats on the little puddle of water .The interactive session with the Dentist, during The International Smile Week, triggered their awareness on oral hygiene. They had a huge smile as they got a certificate from the tooth fairy and they made a tiny tooth pouch for their first tooth that falls.
The songs sung by theSuperkidz made many a heads turn ..as they travelled by bus for the library visit on The International Book Lovers Day. The ever encouraging Librarian helped the students to browse through the books and there eyes grew wide open as they fingered through big colorful pages. The visit served the purpose, as Superkidz have started asking for story books to read….mission accomplished!!!
World Joker’s Day-was a day of laughter and giggles… the little Superkidz couldn’t stop themselves and laughed till their tummies ached watching Charlie Chaplin’s “Circus”. They giggled and had fun as they all got dressed up like a clown.
It was a mystery for our littleSuperkidz , as they watched the way the paint spread as the solid ice block melted on it .They made beautiful ice painting on International Ice cream Day.
” The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives”. Truly said by Albert Einstein. ..AND OUR LITTLE SUPERKIDZ LIVE UP TO IT!!!
“Be a friend”.
“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.” – Woodrow T. Wilson
The most important relationship that we learn to make at a very early age and try to keep till we last on this earth is friendship. The value of friendship cannot be stressed too much. But in an attempt to convey this, the students of class 4 staged a special assembly on the 29th of August 2014. The students sang songs on the value of friendship and on what it is to be a friend; one of which was composed by our dance master. A small skit was presented on the value of forgiveness among friends and how anger jealousy and envy do not have place in true friendship. Students portrayed the essence of friendship through various dance styles. The students also spoke on the values of true friends using the alphabets of English attributing each letter to a particular quality of a good friend. After the program, a small discussion was held with the parents and they were asked to share their experiences with their friends and what role their friend has played in their life. This session was an eye opener as there were different perspectives shared and ideas conveyed.
The program was a successful attempt at educating the children on friendship and also making every child of STD 4 to participate and to take away their fear of the stage. The special assembly on friendship has brought out the best in everyone.
“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allow you to grow.” – William Shakespeare
