Being green is an unshakable commitment to a sustainable lifestyle and it all begins with us. One cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around us. What we do makes a difference, and we only have to decide what kind of difference we want to make.
Imagine if trees gave free Wi-Fi, we would be planting them like crazy. Isn’t it?? Planting trees teaches us to gather strength from our deepest roots. It’s our duty to save environment’s beauty. The key to greener planet is in our hands. One who plants a tree, plants a hope.
With the aim of spreading awareness about environment, Seth Anandram Jaipuria School has always taken the lead and has been a source of inspiration. To take the objective of plantation forward, the school has successfully registered itself to the ENO Tree Database
Environment Online – ENO is a global virtual school and network for sustainable development. Since its launch in 2000, over 10,000 schools in 157 countries have joined ENO and made concrete deeds for environment like tree plantation.
The school’s Principal-cum-Director, Ms. Manju Rana along with the students participated with great zeal and enthusiasm. Tree Plantation Program was conducted at the green belt near the school premises. Teachers and students joined hands in large number to make this event a great success.
Taking initiative is the commencement of being a leader. It’s doing the right thing without being told. Seth Anandram Jaipuria School takes initiatives with different communities to make the environment clean and green.
When we plant trees, we plant the seeds of peace and seeds. The students of Pre-Primary, Primary and Middle classes along with the gardeners and teachers participated in the plantation drive with great enthusiasm. Many different trees were planted and then registered on an online app – ENVIRATE.
Plants elemental to the ecology of the region are chosen for the purpose. Registering trees, taking pictures and rating the environment online on a mobile phone was a great fun. This drive is, thus, a perfect example of how virtual connection can work in tandem towards a cleaner, greener globe. May we and generations to come, bask in their glorious beauty.
Not only this, Seth Anandram Jaipuria School has also participated in ENO – Climate Cycling organized by Climate Circle Association based in Finland. Climate Cycling – A first time cycling event in Helsinki which was held on 11th September, 2019. It’s the simplest approach to remove carbon dioxide. Principal-cum-Director, Ms. Manju Rana initiated the event by giving a green signal to all the participants.
Students in large number enthusiastically participated in the event and learnt how much carbon dioxide a small cycling event helps to remove from the atmosphere. The Jaipurians today are always ready to reduce a little amount of carbon dioxide.
Let’s all enjoy a healthy and a better life. Let’s win the
battle against climate change!!!
let’s follow a few green tips:
> Leave nothing but footprints.
> Take nothing but pictures.
> Kill nothing but time.
Play is the beginning of knowledge and it comes naturally to each child. An Outdoor play is an inevitable part and equally important for the holistic development of a child. With the advancement of technology, children have lost their fun and miss the experimental and creative part of learning.
Encouraging children for outdoor play during the early years of development helps them to learn and grow rapidly. It not only makes children energetic, creative and enthusiastic but also provides an opportunity to explore, discover and develop their critical thinking.
Keeping this in mind, at Seth Anandram Jaipuria School we emphasize to work and help children towards gaining an overall development. Various structured outdoor activities like Edu Sports, Adventure Camp, Multi Intelligence Camp, and Sensory Garden along with free play, swings, sand pit, water area etc are organised to cater their academic need as well as to enhance their physical abilities. Each activity is designed and conducted under the supervision of well-trained faculty to ensure a safe and happy environment for children to learn. All the activities are collaborated with the curriculum to help children to learn differently.
Free play is also an excellent way to enhance the social skills of the children. It gives them an opportunity to communicate freely with their peer group .They learn to share and to work in collaboration with team. It also teaches them to remain patient and helps to infuse curiosity to learn with their immediate environment.
It is now time for parents also to participate equally and provide them ample opportunities for the holistic development of their child. They should spend some quality time with them to strengthen their bond and encourage them to explore, experience and enhance their abilities. Together we can help them to grow happily in the lap of nature.

“Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students” – Solomon Ortiz
Developing positive relationships between a teacher and student is a fundamental aspect of quality teaching and student learning. We teachers at Seth Anandram Jaipuria School right from the beginning aim to create a special bond with our kids, as teachers play a magnanimous role in shaping the lives of their students. It is important to realize how special a teacher and student relationship is.
As kindergarten teachers of Jaipuria we create a safe, caring and supportive environment for our children by involving them in various activities like circle time, free play, swings, etc. Activities like circle time give opportunity to each and every child to express himself/herself. We believe that children do differ in their ways of learning and hence it is the responsibility of every teacher to cater to the individual needs of the students. While some students grasp the concepts quickly and take part actively in the learning process, some may find it difficult.
It is the teacher who has to create an atmosphere that is conducive to an engaging learning process. Jaipuria establishes a supportive classroom environment, coupled with productive student- teacher relationships, to provide a robust platform for students so that they stay encouraged and motivated to grow not only academically but also personally.
When it comes to raising children to learn and lead, a positive teacher-student relationship is as important as academic performance for students to achieve more and empower themselves for the life ahead of them.
The space and universe has always created a kind of fascination and curiosity in the minds of young learners and budding scientists. The mystery of stars, planets and other celestial bodies have attracted everyone as powerful magnets since time immemorial. But as it so not just possible for everyone to explore the space and its enigma, the planetarium shows at school have provided a great opportunity to the children of primary classes to experience the heavenly bodies at their doorstep. To give the children of primary classes an out worldly feeling, Seth Anandram Jaipuria has organised a mobile planetarium show in the school premises for grade two, four and five which provided the children an incredible way to learn about the wonders of space due to the unique environment the dome creates. It was completely dark and immersed the children into a wonderful experience of the universe. These shows were also linked to the curriculum of primary schools and were led by presenters who are passionate about space.

As Delhi/NCR celebrates a quieter Diwali, cleanest in four years, optimism for having a less polluted aftermath were dashed on the day after when the reversal began with firecrackers inspite of being banned by the authorities, taking centre stage, aided by a drop in the wind speed and a high share of stubble burning, that resulted in Delhi’s air quality touching ‘severe’ levels for the first time this season.
In fact, much of the pollution is coming from farms in nearby states of Punjab, Haryana, and Western Uttar Pradesh. With the rice harvest over, farmers are burning crop stubble — specifically the remnants of the rice crop to prepare the fields to plant wheat and return nutrients to the soil. As winter begins to roll in and Delhi suffers from seasonal smog, calls are once again going out for drastic measures.
A graded response to worsening air pollution in the national capital and adjoining areas has already been triggered and the Delhi government has announced another round of Odd-Even vehicle restriction which is to begin from Monday i.e. 4th November. Anti-pollution face masks are already flying off the shelves as Delhi’s denizens seek relief from the gas chamber like situation. The city is on high alert.
None of this is new now. It has been clear over the last few years that the air quality in Delhi/NCR is progressively worsening. But what’s unique about Delhi’s smog is that the smoke from the burning outside the city is mixing with pollution inside the city — from construction, vehicles, and fires used to cook and keep warm and the annual crop burning in the neighbouring states of Punjab and Haryana. This mix of rural and urban pollution intensifies in the cooler winter months and this year’s air currents through the region have been unusually slow, allowing the dirty air to linger.
Delhi and NCR has earned the unenviable distinction of becoming the most polluted cities on Earth this month, as air quality has reached epically bad proportions.
The airborne particles and toxic chemicals that make up the smog have choked the heart of the metropolitan area, where merely breathing the air was, at its worst, like inhaling poison.
Hospitals reported a 20 % surge in patients with pollution-related illnesses, and doctors have declared a public health emergency. This is the third year in a row that air pollution in Delhi/NCR has become very severe, despite the Indian Supreme Court’s attempt to mitigate it in October with a fireworks sales ban ahead of Diwali.
The Central Pollution Control Board has declared a public health emergency in Delhi and nearby areas as the region chokes due to rising air pollution levels since Diwali. The Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority has banned construction activity till November 5 as the pollution levels entered the “severe plus” or “emergency” category.
As air pollution reached alarming levels in the national capital, hospitals reported a surge in the number of patients suffering from respiratory and breathing complications, with doctors advising residents, especially children and the elderly, to stay indoors as much as possible.
If this continues Delhi is going to be a living hell for all……
It is high time now to stop blaming others specially the authorities for the present scenario and to take some positive steps ourselves.
Knowledge comes from learning and wisdom comes from experience of living with with others
‘PUAAAAAH!’ THE ALPACA WAVES TO YOU! The 2019 World Scholars Cup Global round was held in the capital city of China, Beijing with more than 3000 participants who got Alpacas and Jerry’s which are the mascot of WSC. This was the biggest global round with participants all around the globe having an amalgamation of several cultures and languages. The eight-day trip to Beijing was a magnificent one with a plethora of opportunities to explore. The two-day city-tour gave us a glance of the Chinese history dating back to 5000 BCE. All the students got a glimpse of the Chinese architecture as well. The competition itself gave a chance to all the students to introspect themselves and do a self-analysis of their potentials and capabilities. There were several participants who were awarded with laurels for their exceptional performances in all the arenas.
Apart from the competition, a Scavenge Hunt was organized by the WSC community in which there were students from all the countries in one team and this gave an opportunity to the people to interact with each other and understand the customs of other countries. The dialogue between the students helped them make new friends from all around the globe. WSC aided the students to comprehend the inner abilities and made them experience a new way of life. it gave us a new outlook towards community, communication and many more paradigms. The informal events gave all the participants an opportunity to deepen their friendships with their newly made pals from other countries. It aimed at making an integrated family, a cohesive community with students from all corners of the world. WSC is the perfect example of learning from the visuals, it made us grasp the diplomatic concepts and helped recognize the international relations between the nations. The syllabus of WSC widened our knowledge and made us learn and comprehend the perspective behind the several theories and concepts. The competition enabled the students to chalk out the relation between science and history, between literature and music, thus making us an intellectual being with a sense of relations.
In my opinion, WSC is the best platform to increase the knowledge of a person in all the arenas of life that too in a practical, logical and socially integrating manner. This WSC Global Round 2019 gave me a bag full of memories and it was a new beginning for several friendships as well. Indeed the rooms of the WSC venue, the air of China holds the chatters and reminiscences of several languages and cultures and have given birth to budding lifelong friendships to cherish throughout.
PRINT-RICH CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.
Healthy environment is the key to healthy learning. It is important to create and provide print-rich environment to the Pre-primary children. They learn as they explore, interact and have meaningful discussion about the written words. It helps the children with countless opportunities to learn about letters and letter sounds. A print-rich environment is one in which children interact with many forms of print and it helps foster skills needed for reading.
Classrooms of Seth Anandram Jaipuria School have all the quality indicators that relate to literacy and in developing pre-reading skills. It includes flash cards, word cards, teacher made books, word walls, printed word labels, cozy book areas, theme display, bulletin boards showing students work, picture book and attendance chart. Students learn best through hands-on, meaningful play experiences within this prepared environment.
Children begin to discover cues that help them figure out words they see which lays the foundation of reading. They want to model what they see around them. Our school provides an environment that has labels, signs, charts, name tags to help so children learn letters, words, numbers easily and are able to make connections between the letters and the functions they serve. Students are able to learn concepts in a way which is both meaningful and fun for them – instead of rote learning or by being forced to sit and write. Learning for them in Seth Anandram Jaipuria School is spontaneous and fun.
