October Month Activities
CLASS I & II – CARD MAKING
A greeting card expresses all the human emotions, joy, thanks, sympathy, humor, love and admiration. It allows us to connect on an emotional level with the people who have touched
our lives. We send greeting cards during festivals, birthdays and many other occasions to the
people whom we remember.

all the four houses participated earnestly and with enthusiasm. This competition motivated the

activities that they are comfortable with.

theme based on a festival to perform. All the videos were shot at the residence of the children

CLASS IX – ADVERTISEMENT MAKING
"A good advertisement is one which sells the product without drawing attention to itself".
On 21 st October 2020, the students of Std IX participated in an ‘Inter House Advertisement
Competition’ The topic given was something we have all been waiting for, a vaccination for
Covid-19. Time limit allotted to each house was 3-5 minutes. The medium of delivery was in
English and Hindi. All the four houses came up with different innovative ideas related to the
current scenario. There were dialogues, songs, dances and creative ideas of inventing a
COVID vaccine to deal with the pandemic situation.
The whole of the making of Advertisement – script-writing, acting, editing, shooting and
recording was done by the students of Std IX under the guidance of their teachers.
CLASS X – MONO ACTING MAKING
The best acting is instinctive.
It's not intellectual, it's not mechanical, it's instinctive.
Competition motivates and drives people to excel and enables them to learn and understand
their strengths and weaknesses. It also encourages people to come out of their comfort zone
and do something that is not necessarily their strong trait.
Our school recently organized a virtual Inter-house Mono acting competition on ‘Navras’ theme for Grade X on 22 nd October where the efforts and talents of all the four houses were put to test. Each house had to present two acts of two minutes each. As soon as the theme was announced, it sent students into a frenzy and they put in a lot of thought in picking the topic, deciding the storyline, drafting the script and practicing the perfect way to emote. It was
followed by the real fun of shooting the videos that was eventually modified elegantly by the
editing team. All the houses performed brilliantly and every house came up with an extremely
innovative and sensitive topic and made an honest attempt to deliver a meaningful message.
