The student delegates took on the roles of diplomats from different countries, representing their nation in discussion on a particular agenda topic at the conference, they also addressed International issues and how these issues affect humanity as a whole. The young delegates passed resolutions to the problems that were in discussion, which might be a real-time solution in the near future.

For the first time in MUNs across India, the UNSC committee did not fail, creating history in CPS Prime MUN by having its members march over to the UNGA committee and passing the motion to remove veto powers.

Such events prepare students to learn about diplomacy, international relations, research techniques, public speaking, debating, compromise, and writing skills in addition to improving critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.

CPS Thirumazhisai hosted Youth Policy Dialogue

“Taste the relish to be found in competition – in having put forth the best within you.”- Henry Kaiser.

Reinvigorated in the year 2016, with a reach over 8000+ schools, 164 cities and 25 Indian states, the Youth Policy Dialogue (YPD) the first of its kind in India is a student led dialogue. It kick started its Chennai round recently at Chennai Public School, Thirumazhisai – the school that is committed to create lifelong learners and future global leaders capable of ushering in a better social order.

The purpose of Youth Policy is to create conditions, learning, opportunity and experience, which enable upcoming leaders to develop knowledge, skills and competence. This allows young minds to be the actors of democracy, integrate into the society, play an active role in civil society and in particular, enhance their problem solving skills.

The IPN YPD focused on grass root issues in the shape of 4 committees:

1. Dynamics of achievement gap between private and public schools.

2. The need for India to import basic amenities rather than developing it themselves.

3. Exploitation of minerals and energy resources of the country

4. City press (photography, article writing, videography, caricature)

Although being debutants in Chennai, IPN YPD welcomed over 200 students making its mark in shaping up future policy makers of the world.

CPS-ANNANAGAR-MY ROOT. MY FAMILY.

The #preprimary tiny tots of #ChennaiPublicSchool, Anna Nagar had a cyclopedic learning on the importance of #family through an event “MY ROOTS”. Kiddos identified the types of family each live in, their members and the bonding they share, through stories, rhymes and Chit-chats. As roots hold a tree, love holds a family. Kids created a #memorabilia using vegetable painting, buttons pasting and drawing to portray their family. This furthered the children’s understanding on the significance of ‘Family’, an ever-lasting relationship between members agglutinated with love.
