 The Annual day celebration plays a crucial part in any child’s school life as it provides a platform for the students to showcase their talent, develop stage presence, the art of socializing and linguistic skills from an early age. It is more so with the pre-primary section as children are on stage for the very first time in their life and parents are eager to see their children perform.

The Annual day celebration plays a crucial part in any child’s school life as it provides a platform for the students to showcase their talent, develop stage presence, the art of socializing and linguistic skills from an early age. Our Pre-Primary Annual Day celebration was organized on 1 February 2020 with the theme ‘Pancha Tattva (The 5 Elements) where our students highlighted the essence of our earthly elements by showcasing their wonderful talents to their parents. Our students put in great performances that told stories on why preserving these elements will make the world a better place to live in.

The program started with the lighting of the ceremonial lamp by our chief-guest Mrs.Rashmi Hegde Gopi, Trustee- Ekya Schools,  Mrs. Ayesha Sirajuddin, Head of School’s South Campuses and Mrs.Deepa S, Head of School, JP Nagar.

This was followed by the invocation song and Mrs.Deepa’s speech, wherein she read this year’s annual report highlighting the achievements of our pre-primary students in various co-curricular arenas. Then, our chief guest Mrs.Rashmi Hegde Gopi addressed the audience sharing her experiences.

It was then time for the much-awaited event of the day,  the mesmerizing performances by our kids who left the audience at awe by their wonderful talent.

The event ended with our pre-primary coordinator Mrs.Lakshmi Umesh thanking the audience for their presence and support.

The Power of Learning with Intent: A Guide to Purposeful Education

In a world brimming with information, the art of learning has evolved beyond the mere acquisition of facts. Learning with intent, a deliberate approach to education emphasises quality over quantity, depth over breadth, and purpose over passive absorption. It’s about cultivating a mindset that transforms knowledge into meaningful action and empowers individuals to navigate the complexities of the modern age effectively.

At its core, learning with intent involves setting clear objectives and actively engaging with the subject matter. Whether exploring a new language, delving into scientific principles, or honing a creative skill, intentionality infuses each learning endeavour with purpose and direction. As Albert Einstein aptly said, "The only source of knowledge is experience." This quote amplifies the importance of active participation and hands-on learning, highlighting that true understanding arises from deliberate engagement with the material.

Furthermore, engaging actively with the material is paramount. Embrace challenges and embrace mistakes as opportunities for growth. This proactive approach not only deepens your understanding but also cultivates critical thinking and problem-solving skills essential for success in any field.

Moreover, learning with intent emphasises relevance and applicability. Seek out opportunities to apply newfound knowledge in real-world scenarios, bridging the gap between theory and practice. By contextualising learning within your personal or professional sphere, you enhance its significance and utility, making it more likely to stick.

In conclusion, learning with intent is a transformative approach that transcends traditional notions of education. By setting clear objectives, engaging actively, prioritising relevance, and fostering a growth mindset, individuals can harness the full potential of learning to achieve their goals and thrive in an ever-changing world. So, embark on your learning journey with purpose, and let each lesson propel you towards a brighter, more fulfilling future.

Gadget-free Summer Break

With summer vacation around, I urge parents to explore various ways to facilitate children to make healthy choices during their vacation time.

Last week, when we asked our Early Years to visualise their characters and create a story, most of them came up with stories about ghosts and monsters attacking others.  When we had conversations about what gave them this idea, we understood that these story ideas emanated from their online games. While gaming per se develops specific skills and requires focus, it also stifles the imagination of young children. Since it is visually appealing, children tend to remember those images in their heads all the time.

I often see parents providing very young children (1 year to 3 year olds)  with gadgets as the means to keep children engaged and entertained. I see children watching phones in the waiting areas of clinics, hospitals, school lobbies and banks.

This brings us to a fundamental question “ Should children be engaged by parents all the time?” Not necessarily. What is likely to happen if children were not handed over gadgets at the waiting lounges? What would they do? Some of them may cry, some may throw a loud tantrum, and some may crib. If parents show resilience and allow children to settle down themselves, they will soon find ways to keep themselves engaged. Likewise, during summer vacation. What if this is a “no gadget” vacation and parents do not take up the responsibility to engage their children? What would children do? How can parents show resilience here and facilitate children to make healthy choices? I leave the readers with this thought for this summer vacation.

The Eye of the Storm

In the hushed embrace of an Indian evening, our journey began, a symphony of anticipation orchestrated by the hum of jet engines and the flutter of boarding passes. The promise of adventure beckoned from distant shores as we boarded our flight bound for the United Kingdom, our hearts aflutter with dreams of far-off lands and newfound horizons. But as we soared through the velvet sky, a foreboding shadow loomed on the horizon, a harbinger of the chaos that was soon to unfold. In the blink of an eye, the tranquil serenity of our airborne sanctuary was shattered by a deafening crack, a burst of purple lightning that danced across the heavens with an otherworldly fervour. The air crackled with electricity as the plane shuddered beneath the force of the storm, its metal frame quivering in defiance against the tempestuous onslaught. And then, in a heart-stopping moment of sheer terror, the heavens unleashed their fury upon us, casting our fragile vessel into a maelstrom of chaos and uncertainty. The sky darkened to a shade of ominous charcoal as the winds howled with a primal ferocity, tearing at the wings of our faltering craft with savage intent. The cabin was awash with panicked cries and frantic prayers as we clung to our seats with white-knuckled desperation, each passing moment stretching into eternity.

And then, as if mocking our feeble attempts at control, the plane tilted almost 180 degrees, its nose plummeting towards the earth with a sickening lurch. Time seemed to stand still as we hurtled towards the ground, our fate hanging in the balance as the world spun wildly out of control. But just when all hope seemed lost, a glimmer of salvation emerged from the chaos, a beacon of light amidst the encroaching darkness. With a mighty roar, the engines surged to life once more, their thunderous symphony drowning out the cacophony of the storm as we clawed our way back from the brink of oblivion. As the storm clouds parted and the sun cast its golden rays upon the horizon, we emerged battered but unbroken, our spirits buoyed by the triumph of the human spirit in the face of adversity. And though our journey had been fraught with peril and uncertainty, we emerged from the crucible of the skies stronger and more resilient than ever before. For in the crucible of adversity, we discovered the true measure of our strength, our courage, and our unwavering determination to defy the odds and chart our course through the tempestuous seas of life. As we touched down on solid ground once more, I couldn't help but marvel at the beauty of the world around us, a testament to the indomitable spirit of the human soul.

Events@Ekya: Triwizard- Intra School – Throw Ball Tournament

This time in Ekya School, JP Nagar we had a Triwizard tournament. Yes for real! I am not kidding! The only difference was that instead of wands, dragons, mazes, Voldemort showing up uninvited we had throw balls, nets, and commentators. On 11th of February, 2020 Ekya School, JP Nagar opened its doors and hearts wide to welcome its two other branches, BTM and ITPL along with CMRNPS for a Throw Ball Tournament between the schools. The hallways of our School were filled with excited students peering towards the ground in order to get a glimpse of the match but unfortunately, as we had classes we could not do that. However, there is a catch my friend. Thanks to the amazing commentary by Nihal and Sutej, the ones who could not view the match knew what was going on. Before I tell you the results of the Intra School Throw Ball tournament results, I need to say, all four campuses had put in a lot of effort and proved that in the way they gave a tough competition to each other. There were two categories of the tournament Under 11 girls (Grades 5 and 6) and Under 13 girls (Grades 7 and 8). The first match was between Ekya JP Nagar and Ekya BTM Layout and then followed by CMRNPS and Ekya ITPL. In the finals, Ekya JP Nagar played against Ekya ITPL (under 13 categories) and Ekya JP Nagar against Ekya BTM Layout (under 11 categories). The winners of both the categories of this tournament were team Ekya JP Nagar lead by captain Parmita Vijay (under 13) and Dhrishya Mohan Reddy (under 11). The best player position was given to Ananya Sharma of Ekya ITPL (under 13) and Natasha Chethan of Ekya JP Nagar (Under 11). By Mahashree G Das, Grade 7A, Ekya School JP Nagar

FieldTrips@EkyaByrathi: Trip to Freedom Park

On 20th February 2020 students of Ekya Byrathi visited Freedom Park in Bangalore as a part of study exposure. As a site of commemoration that materially enshrined the democratic values of reconciliation and freedom, the central jail of Bangalore has been revamped and reformed as a park. From Montessori to Grade-7 students were taken on a tour of the place where they observed the amphitheater, where the prisoners used to perform, ‘jail cells’ for various layers of crime, the hospital which used to treat the inmates, the watchtower, the parallel walls for movement of the prisoners, etc. The students also played in the children’s park and also took an active part in the team bonding games organized for them. Post lunch, they head back to school and wrote a reflection on the important things they learned or saw during the field trip. It was an illuminating trip filled with fun activities.
