Indo- Nepal Virtual Meet- 14 December 2020
Indigenous games are a very important part of a people’s heritage and culture. They preserve age- old traditions and stories of the people group. Indigenous games have an origin, which is the story behind the invention of the particular activity or game.
We, at K.R. Mangalam World School, G.K-II, feel exasperated to join hands with MACCHAPUCHCHRE SCHOOL, NEPAL on a collaborative project: ‘EVERYONE IS A WINNER’.
Traditional Indigenous games taught valuable skills but also combined mental and physical wellbeing. Virtual Exchange is the coming together of seemingly distant and faraway classrooms. These classrooms from different corners of the world connect with each other through video, chat, call, or any other form of technology. It’s made possible virtually! Virtual Exchange allows classrooms to not only communicate with diverse perspectives but learn with those perspectives as well. Exposure to diverse, intercultural perspectives is imperative to building the future global leaders of today. In regard to same, a virtual meet was scheduled on December 14, 2020, Monday wherein the association was made between the Principals of the two school, Dr. Sangeeta Arora (KRM) and Mr. Swampoorna Dewapatey (Macchapuchhre). The meet commenced with the introduction of the in-charges and concerned teachers of both the schools. The primary aim of this project is to study the indigenous sports of India and Nepal and understand how these games reflect their indigenous cultures and traditions along with its functional role in educational programs. Activities planned for the project were discussed in details step wise for a better outcome of the project.
This virtual exchange program is an opportunity for students to see these capabilities come to light. It’s done through collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, analytical skills, and more!
At K.R. Mangalam, G.K-II, it is believed that students discovered are not only the leaders of the future, but they are leaders now.
