Our friendship theme at CPS “Dosthi Masti” saw the children celebrating the joy of making and having friends. During the week they were engaged in sharing and caring activities. They were engaged to get to know their friends better through fun activities. The morals learnt from the stories on friendship not only got them thinking but practicing them as well. At the end of the week the children from Mont-III and UKG lovingly made colourful friendship bands and tied it with pride on their best friend’s wrists. At Junior Academy children enjoyed taking photographs with their friends which they will cherish for years. The students also enjoyed exchanging friendship puppets which they made in class.
We all live in a super-fast, crowded and busy time period. We have to perform multiple tasks throughout the day and the area which has been the most affected by this phenomenal change is the physical well being of humanity on the whole. Generally adults and children have failed to maintain good health because of their lazy ,idle and precarious eating habits. Inculcating healthy food habits in our children has become a herculean task. Thus recognizing the need of the hour, a science activity on “Fireless Cooking” was organized and orchestrated by the grade IV students. The children participated very enthusiastically and presented some very unique and mouth watering delicacies. They were made aware of the importance of different nutrients present in the food and how the lack of these will lead to different health issues. A quiz competition was also conducted to re-iterate the fact that good health provides us freedom from all the sickness and diseases and is the most costly and precious gift of life.
Pre-Primary students of Chennai Public School, Thirumazhisai had a gala-time on August 1st 2016 at the school’s multipurpose hall where they played multifarious games with their friends and teachers. One would wonder about the number and variety of games that were displayed. Right from the contemporary LEGO blocks to the age old Pallanghuzhi; It was a feast to the eye to see such varieties. To name a few there were small ludo boards, small carrom boards, magnetic fish ponds, small chess boards, small business boards, snake and ladder boards, puzzles, blocks, small badminton, Chinese checkers, spinning top and what not.
Class teachers, Co-ordinator and the Principal played a few games with them; Principal Mrs. Subhashini Govindan appreciated this special activity organized by and for the Pre-Primary alone which was directed towards development of their fine motor skills.
Today’s generation is plagued by short-term concentration spans! Since it is difficult to hold kids’ attention these days, it is extremely important to encourage our little ones to communicate more.
We in CPS had a colourful event “Tell a Tale” A story telling competition on 5.8.16. The kids were excited, clad in costumes of different characters of their choice. Parents helped in preparing the wonderful props and the children enthusiastically participated in the event. This Little Story Tellers contest will help our little ones work on their communication and language skills and create their own magical world.
