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

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
The Teacher’s Day was celebrated with great pomp and splendor at Chennai Public School, Thirumazhisai. The day kicked off with a special assembly done by the tiny tots and won the hearts of many through their innocent voices. A student emphasized in his speech, the need for a teacher in one’s life by quoting the story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan. This was followed by various games and activities planned for the teachers which was organized by the sparky students of CPS.
The whole school was highly motivated to show their dedication and care to their teachers and everyone worked towards it. Our Principal Mrs. Stella Pauline Punitha addressed the children with her beautiful homily saying that, “Today, you gave us momentary happiness with this program, but then we expect you all to keep us happy always by being responsible and positive”. She also added that technology can never replace a teacher. Valuable messages were delivered by Dr.Meenakshi, Headmistress and our Vice Principal, Mrs. Chitra Srinivasan, saying that teachers must be a source of guidance and support and not mere instructors.
Teachers were entertained with various mind boggling games, dazzling dances by the bouncy students, all of which filled the teachers’ hearts with utmost appreciation. A teacher even said, “I am overwhelmed with joy by looking at the way children can organize such an event flawlessly”.
Students of CPS organized the cultural program with various performances which synchronized with the theme of celebration. This was followed by the telecast of the programme of The Honorable Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi.
This day proved to be a sample of the students’ association with teachers. At the end of the day, every teacher was pleased and thrilled to experience the gratefulness of students painted throughout this celebration.
The birthday of Lord Ganesha was celebrated with great gusto on 28th August 2014 by the tiny tots of preprimary department of Chennai Public school Thirumazhisai. The spirit of festivity surrounded the assembly hall with the fragrance from the agarbhathi and flowers. The program began with the pooja done to the Lord praying for education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. The dance performed by Swetha of Mont III enhanced the festive mood. Slokas recited by the little ones invoked God and added fervor to the celebration. Skit enacted on “How Ganesha got his Vahana”, and “Why Moon got the curse” highlighted the value not to criticize others.
