“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

A day to learn about road safety and traffic rules were planned for CPS Pre Primary children on 04.09.2014
Junior block had lot of class activities based on traffic signals and safety. For UKG and Mont III level, a model environment of road was created on the School ground to help the students learn the rules and safety more practically.
To simulate the traffic environment, small bicycles, Traffic light models and cut outs of zebra crossing were displayed. Our PT sir acted as traffic police and there was an atmosphere of learning and enthusiasm during the entire demonstration. Children thoroughly enjoyed this outdoor leaning session as they were also participating and enacting as cycle riders, general public and pedestrians on road. Thus the importance of adhering to traffic rules and meaning of traffic signs was explained to Mont III and UKG students.
Being road smart doesn’t necessarily come naturally. We need to teach our children how to be safe pedestrians and how to be safe passengers whether travelling in a car, bus or train. It’s not just about telling them what to do – children learn from what adults do, so we need to model safe behaviour
