Primary Talent Search 2015-16

Finally it was here!!!!!! That time of the year, when the talent search had to be held. With great enthusiasm the entry forms were given to the children and entries were eagerly awaited. The categories for the Talent Search were as follows- Instrumentals, Vocals and Sketching. A thunderous response was received for the Sketching category competition, while a fairly good number of children gave in their entries for the Instrumental and Vocal categories. As the competition was to be held on the 12th of March, , the eliminations for the same were held on the 8th of March.

On the day set for the eliminations, the children came to school ready with their instruments and pieces, songs and crayons. Each participant put in his best effort. The members of the Talent Search committee - Ms. Malaika Rodrigues,  Mrs. Michelle D’souza, Mrs. Christine Periera and Mrs. Lorna Bhantu enjoyed listening to every piece that was played and every song that was sung. As for the sketching- the class teachers were asked to select the best three from every class and the final three from each standard were chosen on the 12th of March. Since there were few entries in the instrumental and vocals category the finalists were chosen on the 8th of March itself. The winners were awarded story and art books as prizes.

As it is rightly said,’ Your talent is a gift from God to you, what you do with it is your gift back to God.’

Kite flying day (Primary)

Makar Sankranti, the festival of kites and til chikkis was celebrated on the 14th of January. Makar Sankranti literally means the movement of the Sun into Capricorn. It is the festival of til-gul where sesame and jaggery laddoos or chikkis are distributed among all and they are generally accompanied by the saying “ til-gul ghya ani gud gud bola” which means “ Eat these sesame seeds and jaggery and speak sweet words.

The boys from Stds I to IV were asked to bring their own kites and phirkis to fly during the durated time. It was an amazing sight to see the colourful kites in the sky and each little boy trying hard to keep their kite flying high. One could also see that special bonding between the parents and their boys while flying their kites, it was like ‘My Dad is the bestest!!’. Some parents even re-lived their childhood days and kept encouraging their sons by shouting ‘ Come on son, you can do it!’ . The boys thoroughly enjoyed this activity to the fullest and returned to class exhausted.

Primary Reading Day

The birth anniversary of our dear Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was celebrated on the 15th of October. As he was an avid reader, we at St. Stanislaus High School celebrated it as reading day. There were numerous activities held to encourage reading.

The children were asked to bring their favourite story books to read in class. The 1st and 2nd std. boys were also informed to come dressed as their favourite fairy tale character and a few boys read their stories out aloud in class. The boys of std. 3 and 4, after reading their books, either gave a gist of their story to the rest of the class or they wrote a character sketch on the book they read.

For Craft, they made a bookmark in class. In the Media Centre the teachers encouraged the boys to read by putting up informative reading software. A book fair was also held, where a variety of books were displayed.

The importance of reading was stressed by the teacher to make them aware that reading improves concentration, vocabulary and develops language and writing skills. Reading also helps their imagination soar and relaxes and calms their minds.

This poem sums it nicely:
‘Books are our friends
Forget them not
They expect nothing but
Offer you a lot
Give you knowledge of all sorts
Books are your best friends
Forget them not.
