Labor Day



COMMUNICATION BEFORE CORRECTION – Strategies to Handle Adolescents

The only journey one has to undertake is the journey within.

Parenting is a learning journey and children don’t come with instruction manuals. To help put all the agony created by these unprecedented times, The Indian Heights School invited a renowned Child and Adolescent Psychologist – Dr Roma Kumar – who has been associated with the field of psychology and mental health for over 30 years for a webinar exclusively designed for parents of Class XI-XII on 5th June 2021. The theme of the session was “Communication before Correction – Strategies to Handle Adolescents”. The Pandemic has affected each and every one in some way or the other, but the adolescents have been greatly impacted by it. The schools are closed and they are confined to their homes. Disconnection from social outlets and peers have made them aggressive, irritant, lethargic, negative, depressive, anxious and fearful. Dr Kumar enlightened the gathering by sharing her valuable inputs on how to cope up with these changing temperaments of children, while ensuring a healthy and proactive environment. She encouraged the parents on using ‘I’ statements, instead of ‘YOU’ statements while communicating with children of this sensitive age group. She also emphasised the importance of “practicing before preaching” as parents become the primary role model for any behaviour displayed by the children. She also discussed the healthy alternatives to punishment and the strategies to be adopted in extreme situations.

The School Principal, Ms Archana Narain, also emphasised the changing emotional and behavioural aspects of children as well as families. She made everyone aware of the fact that most of the times, a disturbed child’s behaviour is attributed to the type of parenting and family environment they are brought up in, and thus it becomes imperative for the parents to pick up the “right” choices when communicating and dealing with their children.

The session helped our parents refresh their parenting skills, learn some wonderful new ways to positively parent and to develop some strategies for dealing with challenging behaviour. It equipped parents to deal with all the confusing doubts, puzzling moments, and contradictory emotions that parenting entails.

They were elated after performing the experiment since it planted the seed of reasoning and curiosity in their young minds.

As students enter senior classes, they have to deal with more subjects, assignments, tests and many  extra-curricular activities. Good time management skills can help keep them on track and reduce stress as they take on more work.

One could see the eagerness and excitement in the toddlers for the activities of day 3 of Kidzz Number Carnival Week.

Treasure Hunt-Students of Step I played Treasure Hunt in which different cutouts of shapes and numbers were hidden in the foyer. Teacher called out the name of shape or a number and students had to find out the number or shape. A Treasure Hunt gave kids the experience of using their brainpower and insight to accomplish a given task.

Identification of Shapes- Students of Step II played the game of identifying the shapes where they had to pick up an object from the frog box and tell about the shape of that object. Learning to identify and understand different shapes are important concepts as each day children are exposed to shapes in their environment. They see and interact with them everywhere daily. They need to be able to recognize shapes, verbalize what they see, and understand why they are there.

No doubt, learning through play not only develop social and cognitive skills but at the same time children gain self-confidence required to engage in new experiences and environments.

When we read, we learn new words, enrich our literary language, widen our vocabulary and we gain knowledge about our surroundings, different people and their culture, nature, history,etc. This kind of knowledge helps us in better understanding of the world around us. Besides, books open our minds, they open vistas to different views and lives, and also give us the feeling of relaxation and peace, it inspires us to discover new things.

The Alpha Fest Week (English Week)

Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning

At the Indian Heights school our objective is not to teach the students by force instead they are directed to what amuses their mind so that the genius in each child can be discovered. Keeping the above objective in mind the school organizes various activities for the students to make learning fun for all. The Alpha Fest Week (English Week) is one such initiative that has been organized for the students of Little Steps from July 24 to July 28, 2017. Although all learning in the Little Steps is play way learning but the goal of organizing this fest is to make students enthusiastic about learning their letters, alphabets and words in a fun way. First day of the Alpha Fest Week saw the students playing Alphabet Hunting  in the foyers and learning to identify the letters and their phonic sounds. Students of Step I excitedly matched the alphabets given to them in the form of flash cards with the alphabets printed on the dices before sitting on the dice. This made recognition of alphabets for the little ones easy & fun. Students of Step II hunted for the upper case letter of the cursive small letter handed to them by the teacher and thus matched the cursive small letters with the capital letters.We are sure that learning of the concepts through these playway methods will go a long way



Cultural Fiesta

“Rain or Shine we grow together”

Education must not simply teach work- it must teach life.

It was an overwhelming feeling for the parents and facilitators alike to see the growth and confidence of the tiny tots, who joined our school last year in Step I. The little singers, dancers & orators amazed one and all with their performance.  These presentations not only help in the holistic development of the students but also strengthen the home school partnership as parents take active part in the functioning of the school.  We thank all the parents for joining us for the programme as it raises the morale of the students and motivates us to do better. The highlight for the day was the enthusiastic participation of the parents in the balloon dance game organized for them. Kudos to their spirit.

Thank you all for making the morning fun filled and memorable.

 



Healthy Snack Making Activity

Our food choices each day affect our health — how we feel today, tomorrow, and in the future. A ‘Healthy Snack Making Activity’ was organized for the students of Little Steps on July 17, 2017 in the school premises. Students brought ingredients from home and with the help of their teachers prepared and enjoyed healthy snacks full of good nutrients. Healthy meals equal healthy minds, and as the caretakers of young minds we, parents & teachers, have a duty to ensure that the nutritional needs of all students are being met right alongside their educational requirements. Encouraging children to eat a nutritious, balanced diet early on is important for a number of reasons. Ensuring they get the right vitamins and minerals in their diet will help them grow and develop optimally. They are also more likely to be energised and motivated, supporting their ability to learn. Educating them on healthy eating during childhood will also help them make healthier choices as they become adults. We strongly believe that by teaching and encouraging healthy eating habits, we are giving our children important tools for a lifetime of healthy living.

Trip to Jim Corbett-Nainital

Fill your life with adventures, not things. have stories to tell not stuff to share.

Memories of school Educational trips are among the most prominent of the formative years, largely because they are a welcome break in the routine for both students and teachers. While their purpose is essentially to educate, they can also be a fun bonding experience for everyone involved, experience new environments and enjoy days away from the classroom. They may be able to connect on more of a personal level without the structure of the normal school day. Keeping the same spirit in mind the school organized a three day trip to Jim Corbett-Nanital for the students of class VII-XII from May 18th o May 20th, 2017. The stay at Corbett gave the students an opulent opportunity to be in nature’s lap, in the serene arms of tranquility, far away from the hustle and bustle and baffling city lights. The students savored the true nectar of adventure. On the first day of the trip,  students visited Garjia Temple and stayed by River Ramganga and enjoyed the shallow, serene and placid waters. On day two they went to Nainital and visited the temple of Naina Devi and strolled on the Mall Road to buy souvenir for their loved ones. Day Three was full of excitement as the students explored the sounds of  nature as they went for Jungle Safari in natural reserve and learnt about some endemic species of flora and fauna. Nights were made more happening with DJ and music before dinner. The trip was a memorable one for all the students.
