Students of grade 7 participated in the Vigyan Samagam Workshop on Size Scales in Astronomy organised by National Science Centre on February 24, 2020. The first exercise was knowing the Solar system better , the planet size, interplanetary distance, meteors, comets and Sun. Students then visited the exhibition under ‘Vigyan Samagam’. Some of the displays were on ITER( International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) , TMT (Thirty Meter Telescope), Department of Atomic Energy, CERN, SKA (Square Kilometer Array) etc.

At TMT corner students learnt that it is to be the world’s most advanced and capable ground based optical and IR observatory to know the evolution of Universe. The ITER display presented India’s contribution to the project. There are 9 work packages in ITER-India scope.The SKA corner showed an array of telescopes, spread over hundreds of kilometres in Australia and South Africa. SKA will allow insights into the formation and evolution of the first stars and galaxies after the Big Bang.

The displays were explained to the students as per their level of knowledge and comprehension. This made the topics interesting and very absorbing for them. Students loved the model of the telescope with mirrors trying to observe the images. These were beyond the regular syllabus of our students but revolved around their knowledge and information as gained all these years. This made the exhibition interesting for the students.

Students also had the opportunity to see the National Science Centre and the various interesting facts and theories displayed there like the shape of DNA, human heart, brain, our muscles and joints, carbon content in our body as measured against the body weight, evolution of life on earth, evolution of our Post & Telegraph, role of chemistry in early lives, going back to early civilisation period, few topics from physics like sound, how it is produced, light and reflection, etc

A Visit to The Old Fort, Delhi
Class VII

On 19th February,2020 the students (131) of our school went to the Old Fort for an educational excursion accompanied by seven teachers.

The visit was organised by the school as part of developing pride in our heritage and appreciating the beauty of the architecture of our shared past

We left the school in buses at 9.45 am and reached our destination by10.30am. After deboarding we formed lines and entered the fort through the main Gate known as ‘Bara Darwaza’. It is a beautiful tall gateway with a dome and an arched entrance.

On the left-hand side of Bara Darwaza is the ASI Museum which has exhibits from ancient times to the Gupta period and later periods as well. The carvings and miniature painting were just like the ones shown in our textbooks.

Next, we went to another gate of the fort named ‘Humayun Darwaza’ after the Mughal emperor Humayun. It has two entrances, one on top of the other and the lower one is at the level of the moat which surrounded the fort at one time.

After this we walked to the observatory started by the first Mughal king Babur for his son Humayun which was later completed by Sher Shah Suri. It is an octagonal structure and has beautiful designs of stars on the entrance gate. Right next to the observatory is a bathhouse or ‘Hammam’ which is in ruins and we could not make much from it.

Next on the agenda was the ‘Baoli’ or the ‘step well’ which was quite familiar to us from our PBL research. But it is actually quite deep and has water even after so much time has passed.

Right next to the Baoli was the fort mosque or Qila-e-Kuhna mosque made up of red and yellow sandstone and marble. It was very wide and quite high. It was decorated with ‘aayats’ of Quran and geometrical patterns made up of marble inlaid in sandstone. There was a well alongside and a small pond for ablutions before the prayers.

Then it was time to return and we came back with lots of new discoveries and happy memories.

The complete life, the perfect pattern, includes old age as well as youth and maturity. Old age has its pleasures, which though different, are not less than the pleasures of youth. Old age is also called the second childhood, and is a time when one needs love and care of the near and dear. This is something which we realized when we visited Guruvishram Old Age home with a few students of classes V and VI on Wednesday, October 23, 2019.

The inmates were very hospitable and friendly, and they welcomed us with their beautiful smiles. To break the monotony of their lives, we sang and danced with them. The students then presented the residents, whom they addressed as dada, dadi, nana and nani, with Diwali greetings, sweets etc. We were able to make out that they were very happy to have us there.

Ms. Suman, the administrator at the home, was overwhelmed and said that the children had come with a lot of preparation, enthusiasm and with good intentions.

Though we spent only a few hours with them, they made us realize the value of our grandparents and the tenderness with which we need to take care of them.
The children realized that the opportunity, words and loved ones — once gone, they never come back! After spending the day at the old age home, their love for their family, particularly their grandparents grew stronger and deeper.
