Inviting guest instructors at school is always an enriching and motivating experience for dancers of all ages. One of our parents, Ms. Shefali Gupta volunteered for teaching dance to our Nestlings students and the workshop was organised on December 22nd, Thursday in the dance studio. She was amazing in fully engaging each child as a host. Children enjoyed dancing on the peppy Christmas songs and were able to follow the steps throughout the session. Ms. Gupta also made them do Om chanting for relaxing at the end of the session. Team Manthan extend our heartiest thanks to her for taking out time for our kids.
A friendly Meditation session was conducted by a meditation expert, Mr. NischalKapoor from IBM for students at the Manthan School Campus .The session was intended to build students’ attentiveness, respect for fellow classmates, forgiveness, self-control and empathy, all the while reducing stress and hyperactive behavior.
Students were given an understanding the relaxation body techniques through deep cleansing breaths while sitting in quiet, calm and peace.
The second day of Earth Week Observation had a guest speaker Mrs. Paroma Singh who is an esteemed parent of The ManthanSchool. She took an interactive session with the students outlining the need to save water, electricity and energy. She talked about children being the future generation, the caretakers of a beautiful dream world.
The session ended with students promising to take instant action against any practice which deters the serenity and scenic beauty of the Earth. Students were taken to gain firsthand knowledge on farming within the schools vicinity where they were given an opportunity to sow seeds, add manure and water to small plants . Students also gained knowledge on the content and composition of the manure which is used for farming.
Students of Fledglings participated in a Poetry Recitation Competition on Save the Earth. They were judged on the content, presentation and expression by their teachers. The participation and response was overwhelming.
