During Diwali Festival students have decorated their homes, dressed up in new clothes and lighted up diyas: Light wins over Dark. Now it's time to come back to school and practice to have the victory of Knowledge over Ignorance.
Annual day is coming - it will be 5th of March. Can`t wait to see that! Children are rehearsing in the schoolyard. They are really glad to be pictured!
If you work hard you deserve some rest. As for me the best entertainment and relaxation will be the Annual Day - I am waiting to see all the traditional dances and colorful costumes. Though for children and stuff it is hectic time - they should be prepared and the show should be on the highest level! Still I believe that they are enjoying the process!
Sophia from Russia and Wendy from China are here to teach children of St.Mary`s School and to experience true life of India! Teaching is a hard work, but it is also a creative work and you can develop your professional skills and build a 'New you' - cause no one will deny that you grow as a person when you challenge yourself!
Today we had the pleasure to give our students the possibility to learn with the new DELL laptops that were provided through the big efforts of our volunteers Gillian Cooper (USA) and Greta Riva (Italy).
These two girls did, each one, their own fundraising project to reach money for four and three computers. So, with these amazing help, our school now has seven BRAND NEW DELL systems.
All school is very grateful to these two girls!
On the 15th of August in India it`s the Independence day and every years the students of our school celebrate this important day for our mother-country and for all of us.
During the previous weeks they prepare dances and speeches that they will perform on this day.
And so they did!
The school was an explosion of colors and smiles: everybody was deeply involved into the ceremony: parents, staff, and children were all together under our national flag sharing the feeling of Indian proud.
The celebration was even bigger than usual because on the same day we had the privilege to inaugurate the new Gillian Block! Another little step forward for our school.
But pictures sometimes speak better than words so, here there are the photos of this amazing day!
In this days, our students had the big possibility to join the relaxing yoga classes of the well known yoga master Asaithambi. We think that for our students it was a great opportunity to approach to this discipline, witch is useful for both, mind and body.
At the end, everybody was really satisfied!
"For me the best moment was when we went downstairs in
the Shiva's Temple and stayed with the children in silence,
meditating for 2 mints in a really peaceful room."
"to see these things through children eyes and being part, just for few hours, of their world is special!"
