“We are all storytellers. We all live in a network of stories. There isn’t a stronger connection between people than storytelling.”
To carry forward the tradition of storytelling,  'Aphorism: Telling a tale using proverbs' activity was organised for Class IV on July 25, 2019 at DPS, Jaipur. The activity was conducted in respective classrooms. The students in each class were divided into three groups and each group was given a tale based on a proverb. Every group presented the given story in their own creative way adding a unique flavor to the original plot. All the groups were able to capture, direct and sustain the attention of their friends and teachers in class.The stories indeed transported the listeners to a different world. 
As the stories were based on proverbs the children also learned about different and important  values while expanding their vocabulary as they presented their play.
The age old art of storytelling was indeed enjoyed by one and all.
    “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

      PowerPoint Presentation activity on OUR SCHOOL LIFE where they learnt about the education system of different countries especially France & India.

      The purpose of the activity was to imbibe the habit of researching and gaining a global knowledge on education. There were six groups and they devised methods to drive the activity to the end to show effective pedagogy through their presentation. The various countries that were researched on were France, USA, Russia, Japan, Finland, Israel, China and their very own country India. The students voiced about their learnings on various countries’ education system and the information that they received from their pen pals from France helped them in procuring abundance of knowledge about their effective pedagogy and almost everyone agreed to incorporate quite a few of those techniques to enhance our own system.

      The activity was a gateway for our students to learning and enlightened them. This activity not only gave an equal footage to every child participated but also boosted their confidence and spirit of independence. Students learnt to contribute, manage and organize, individually as well as in a team. It sparked their innate skill of leadership, responsibility, innovation and creativity. It provided a golden opportunity to promote original thinking and skilful implementation.
