‘In a world full of game players, the only way to set yourself apart is to be a Game Changer’.
We at Chennai Public School believe in imparting knowledge through innovative methods and one of the most novel one, is through the assemblies which makes it mandatory for all students to actively participate in one programme or the other.The assemblies offer a visual and fun way of gathering information that is easily understood and retained in the minds of an onlooker.The Special Assembly, presented by Grade V began with the ‘Sanskrit Prayer Song’ invoking the blessings of God followed by a variety of programmes. The topic seemed pertinent and all the programmes were in coherence with the topic. The program started off with Yoga which highlighted on ‘Thoppukarnam’ or Super Brain Yoga which helps a person to achieve mental, physical and spiritual well-being. The Tamil ‘Therukoothu’ team enthralled the parents reiterating the usage of copper and mud vessels over plastic.The choral speakers convinced the parents that though they seem to be “Young and Restless” , they are completely focused and will turn out well in the long run. The ‘Dance drama’ and the ‘Carnatic Choir’ emphasized the fact that every one of us have the responsibility to be a game changer in the lives of the under privileged.
The performance of the students was very heartening& uplifting and there was a general air of exuberance among the audience.
“Our Culture, our traditions, our language are the foundations upon which we build our identity.”
Traditions help create memory and help impart our life values in children. In order to instill such values in our young children the Special Assembly of Grade II “Reminiscing our Traditions” entertained their parents with an array of cultural programs like songs, dance, skit, yoga and debate. The program began with a salute to Mother India through our National song. The children displayed their proficiency in three different languages, English, Tamil and Hindi. Through the skits the children showcased the changes in lifestyles and traditions over the years and emphasized on keeping the traditions alive. The students danced gracefully on the stage and mesmerized the audience through the folk and traditional dance forms of South India. The yoga performance by the students was breath taking and received standing ovation from the audience. The program concluded with a melodious song on family traditions. It was a memorable day for the students and parents.
The Special Assembly for Grade IV “Life is Beautiful”, focused on creating a platform to encourage all the students to display and identify their innate talents and in the process imparted value based knowledge.The event was diligently organized and children participated enthusaistically delivering their part with style and grace. The variety of programes brought out the blatant fact that life is beautiful and it is in the hands of the beholder to choose a life of Joy, positivity, compassion, love or dwell in things that don’t see the innumerable opportunities that life offers. The Carnatic and the Western Choir brought out the essential truth that it is the little things in everyday life that makes each one happy. The choral speakers urged the audience to throw the Idiot Box, TV and replace it with knowledge giving source “Books” . Life is beautiful always, and beauty can be found nearly anywhere if we look with light in our eyes.This indispensible reality was tactfully brought out by the Tamil Debaters and Dancers too. To conclude the program, the students summarised with the profound thought and that it is pertinent to honour, the beauty inherent in all experiences and to prioritize the way we want the world to be and empathetically contribute to a loving world.
“Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory”
The Tournament of Champions was everything one can ask for. It wasn’t just about academic growth, it was about how you can grow as a person and benefit the global economy. It is an amazing opportunity to behold what the world has to offer. It is a chance to meet and mingle with people with various age groups and cultural backgrounds. To be honest it was a leap of faith for us. It was an experience everyone earns for.
In such events you realize you have so much to learn, and there is always space for us to grow. Only when we grow higher, we realize how little we were. It was an amazing experience not because it is an international but because it was an amazing platform to groom your leadership skils.You look around you and you find people from various countries across the world who are here together to celebrate the joy of learning. You may not believe but now we have a friend circle that spans the globe…from Japan to Botswana and beyond we made friends to last a lifetime. Well, lets not forget that it is a competition. It is a magnanimous stage to put up your debate skills, international knowledge and articulate your writing skills. We are proud that we had great individual and team achievements. Some of them are our team was top 200 in both debate and writing and we were top 50% top scholars and we got 20 silver medals and 3 gold. But still the true accolades of the journey were the exposure and experience itself.
Keeping the competition aside, it was amazing to witness the grandeur of the Yale University. We could feel the rush of history in our Veins as behold the magniloquence of the 400 years old institution. Well not just Yale, how can we forget the home of lady liberty? It was also amazing to witness the scenic skyline of the city that never sleeps “New York”. From the amazing statue of Liberty to the Royal Empire State building, it was a trip of a lifetime.
