Blogbait – My first summer camp class

by

Today was the first day of the summer camp. I have enrolled for Indian Instrumental music.

In the special Tabla Class I got a chance to learn ‘Kayeda’ of ‘Teen Taal’ and our tabla teacher showed us a video of PanditKishanMaharaj where he played Ganesh Paran on tabla. I was astonished to see it. The two things that touched my heart were- one it’s a blessing to learn tabla from a great teacher as it gives a person a sense of immense pride, and secondly, even when he turned 81 and was a great well-known figure, he asked for everyone’s blessings after listening to ‘Ganesh Paran’. It taught me a lot about our Indian culture. I am blessed to be apart of such a great cultural heritage.

A Splashing Experience At Neelansh Theme Park

by

On May 14th, 2018 we went to Neelansh Theme Park, Sitapur Road for an exhilarating experience full of fun, frolic and laughter. The resort was a fun place with a huge water park. We went there with an excited heart and songs on our lips. The bus journey was full of laughter and jokes.

On our arrival, the sight of the water park made us feel super excited and charged up to have lots of fun. There was an expansive pool with exquisite water slides. We did not waste much time and jumped into water to beat the sweltering afternoon heat, splashing about in the cool water. There were many things to enjoy like the Rainbow Shower, Rain Dance, a 400 ft Tube Slide, Wave Zone, Waterfall Zone, Wave Pool and many more exciting rides and slides.

The children enjoyed in the pool by showing off their swimming skills, splashing water on each other, sliding through the thrilling water rides and dancing to the beats of various songs. For many of them it was their first time, which helped them get over their fear of water whereas for some, it was a recollection of memories of the days spent on the beach.

The visit was the perfect way to break off before our summer vacations as it gave us a chance to relax and unwind after a lot of studies. We are extremely grateful to our Principal who gave us this opportunity and got this trip organized for us. It is definitely going to be the highlight of this academic session for us.

Blog Bait – Controlling AC Appliance With Computer

by

Hello everyone, today I will share my experience of controlling AC appliance with the help of a computer. During our last hobby club we, the children of IT club, had switched on and off the electric AC bulb (220V) with the help of our computers by accessing the local IP address of raspberry pi, which is a small single-board computer.

It was my first experience of controlling an AC appliance with the help of a Local Area Network. We can exercise this control even from a long distance with the help of internet as internet is the net of connections, interlinked to each and every computer in the world, for sharing information and other resources.

Raspberry Pi is a small computer which has 40 GPIO(s) (General Purpose Input Output) pins. Each pin is programmable and the programme is stored in the micro SD card in it. It uses python language for controlling AC appliance as python is the language which helps computers to control hardware with the help of the software.

We have programmed in such a way that when we sends 0 (input command)from our computer to raspberry pi (processing) where it is processed and then the solid state relay turns on the AC light bulb (220V) (output). And, when we send 1 to raspberry, the relay switches off the bulb. A relay is a very small device which acts like a switch for AC connections and can be used to complete or break the circuit, which in result helps us to control the AC appliances. It works on the principle of electromagnetism.

It was a very good experience for me and I think this technology should be used in home automation as well as in our school with adding photoresistors which will help us to reduce the electric bill as well as switching on and off the electric appliances at the right time.

Blog Bait : Young Achievers

by

“Magic always happens when you direct your inner powers to the object you want to change.”
― Bangambiki Habyarimana

Yes, it was a magical experience! Students of our school got a golden opportunity to attend an inspirational and interactive session organized by Mind Mingle, in CMS auditorium, on 27 April’18 where young achievers were invited to interact with students. 53 students were selected to represent our school.

The auditorium was packed with students from different schools of the city and outside too. The host for the event introduced the awe inspiring child prodigies- Harsh Songra, IshitaKatyal, Truptraj A Pandya, Babar Ali and Aryan Mishra.

Harsh Songra, who has developed an app called ‘My Child App’ was the first to interact with us. Harsh was diagnosed with dyspraxia at the age of 11, a neurological disorder that affected his motor skills. He suffered for five long years, but that was not a deterrent. He developed this app that helps parents monitor their child’s growth between 11 and 24 months. He inspired us by telling us the secret mantra that he followed and that was discipline. He said that we can do what we want to do in our lives with discipline.

IshitaKatyal, the youngest author and TED speaker, came next on stage. At the age of 8, she authored ‘Simran’s Diary – the happy, sad, and funny experiences of an eight-year-old’. Her mother encouraged her to pursue her desires. She said that the difficulties we face, the confusion which we have are all part of our life. Her pearls of wisdom, ‘Be accepted by yourself and not by anyone else’ still rings in my ears.

Truptraj A Pandya, the youngest tabla player, walked on stage with the confidence of a master. At the tender age of 6, The Guinness Book of World Record proclaimed him as the world’s youngest table player. He said that he started playing tabla at the age of 2 and performed at the All India Radio when he was just 3 years old. He played ‘Shape of You’ and we all sat there spell bound.

We met Babar Ali, the youngest headmaster. He became the youngest headmaster at the age of 8. He gathered a few of his village friends and started teaching them in the backyard of his house. His small initiative has turned into a revolution in the field of education. He now reaches out to three hundred students.

Aryan Mishra, the youngest astronomer, opened our eyes to the beautiful and amazing possibilities that the cosmos has in store. He started his journey at the age of 11 and wants to continue inspiring students to ‘look up’.

Listening to all these inspiring youngsters, we realized that the power lies within us. Age does not matter. We just need to focus and follow our heart. A big ‘thank you’ to our Principal, Ms. PoonamKochitty, for letting us be a part of this magical experience.

Blog Bait : Future prospects – IT Club

by

Today was a special day for me, because I learnt something new and good. As I am a member of the IT (Information Technology) Club, we worked on Raspberry Pi 3 Module last week. We learned how to program it and the fields where we can use it. I was also surprised to see that the home appliances can also be controlled by it. We tried to control a bulb using Raspberry Pi 3 Module, a relay and a bulb. I was amazed to see that we were successful. We controlled the bulb using the programming of Raspberry Pi 3 Module. I thought that it could help to save electricity and energyfor the future use. It was a great learning experience for me. I sincerely thank my teacher Mr. Sarman Singh.

Blog Bait – An Insight Into Mining

by

Our class had an amazing workshop on coal mining by an ex-student of our Principal Ma’am, Mr. Anuj Jaiswal, a coal mining engineer working in Coal India Limited at Bhubaneshwar. A pass out from I.I.T Dhanbad, he has now qualified for I.I.M Lucknow for an M.B.A.

The workshop was a surprise as we were having our regular classes. All of a sudden ma’am came and introduced him. Co-incidentally his job and our current topic in Geography happen to match. He told us about different types of mining and which mining is economically beneficial for the country.

Being the son of a businessman, I really enjoyed this workshop because my father had initially been engaged in sand mining and I had never been to a mining area so I was curious to know about it. He made us aware about a lot of details and answered our queries.

I was also really surprised by the amount of hard work he did in his studies as shared by him. His favourite subject was Physics and Chemistry. In Class-12th, he used to study I.I.T level books. He spent 14 hours a day on his study because his goal was very clear and his ambition was to join I.I.T. He said it was only self-motivation that can make the impossible possible.

Blog Bait – Respecting Parents

by

God couldn’t be everywhere so he made parents.

Today’s morning assembly was based on the theme of loving and respecting parents. This thought was beautifully woven in the presentation made by the senior students under the guidance of Mr. Devesh Agnihotri. Students were able to bring out the meaning of the beautiful relationship between a parent and child.

It touched a chord in everyone’s heart and brought tears to our eyes.. Everyone was able to connect with the theme. Sacrifices made by parents for their children like sacrificing their freedom, their desires, their social life, their own comfort for their children’s sake, cannot be measured. Children are so busy growing up that they forget about the little treasures of life and have no time to thank parents for all the sacrifices they made. No time to thank mothers for all that they have done in the process of raising their child. Blessed are those who have parents to guide them in this journey called life.

We must spend quality time with our parents. Personally, I can relate to it because everyday I am borrowing quality time from the Almighty.

My First Day In The Science Club

by

In 2018, I choseto join the Science Club as my new hobby and I don’t regret my decision at all. The Science Club is headed by Mr Pankaj Rathore and Mrs. Monika Taneja who gave us the best first day experience that was possible. We did some very fascinating experiments .First we made a mosquito repellent that was as powerful as those in the market and at just one-eighth the cost .To make the repellent first we took some camphor and crushed it .Then we sprayed it with turpentineoil. To make it more powerful we decided to add some neem oil to it but our Science club is all about ‘Do it yourself’ .So we had to extract Neem oil out of neem leaves .For this first we plucked out neem leaves and flowers and ground them to a paste .After this we added a little water to the paste followed by oil. Then we boiled this liquid under the guidance of Monika ma’am. Filtering this we extracted neem oil. In the process we learnt many facts about neem. We learnt about how India is one of the few countries which possesses neem in abundance. We also researched about the medical properties of neem and got to know that this wonder plant can cure almost any skin disease. We came to know that Neem Oil is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-allergic and has many more properties. So overall my first day in the Science Club was a fantastic learning experience.

BLOGBAIT – The First Assembly of the Session

by

The assembly of the first day of the third session was extremely fantastic with innovative thoughts and ideas. As we know that our Assembly is dramatically different to that of other schools where there is generally a prayer and pledge along with the news and thoughts including National Anthem. But here at Seth AnandramJaipuria School, Lucknow we have a “memorable and inspiring” morning assembly every day. It includes prayer motivational videos and discussions.When we enter the Assembly hall, Principal Ma’am and other staff are already present.

On the first day our music teacher and all of us sang a very sweet and energetic song. Many new and talented students were introduced. After that our co-ordinatorMr.Pankaj Sir welcomed all the students and the staff. He inspired us all through the topic “Never take steps back after seeing a difficult task.” We should persist and if we fail we should try harder. But never say no. He showed the video of the second woman IPS officer Kanchan Chaudhary. She was the only girl amongst men training to be a police officer.She didn’t have much physical strength then, but she had courage.

Once she failed to do a task in the police training but after that she recalled the teachings of her father that we should never give up. She continued practicing and finally, she succeeded.

It was an emotional and touching video. It taught us that we should never give up. I was greatly inspired.

Blogbait : Empower, Enthuse & Excel

by

I could not be a more proud Principal than I was today. Within a year, our school has won the coveted Microsoft Showcase School Badge .Our teachers are using Sway. Our children are now globally connected and being exposed to experiences through virtual field trips & Skype sessions. They are coding, creating apps, using Kodu and Minecraft. The speed with which the transformation has happened is mindboggling. All credit to my team, especially my Computer teacher Reetu Pandey and Coordinator Pankaj Rathore, both of who have the distinction of becoming MIEE’s Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts.

Today Ms Reetu Pandey conducted an intensive three hour training of all my staff members to ensure that we make further headway in this journey .She insisted that all teachers first need to become MIE’s Microsoft Innovative Educators. She gave detailed instructions on how they need to go about it. Mr.Pankaj Rathore spoke about SDG’s and the value that Microsoft Certification is going have in future jobs .I gazed at these two teachers –two “enthused” and “empowered” educators who were showing the path to “excellence”!!

We then had a Skype session with Mrs. Paramjeet Dhillon Head of Kamla Nehru School in Phagwara, that are forerunners and are world famous for the immense initiatives they have taken in becoming a truly technology driven school. Mrs. Dhillon and her team of of five teachers shared the work they are doing and promised to extend every support that we needed .This was a bunch of passionate teachers transforming lives in a small village school, and placing it on the world map.

Swati Bhushan my pre-primary teacher than took up a session on 3D-Paint and it’s use in all subjects .I couldn’t be happier at seeing how not just my children, but even my teachers have grown.
