Theme Assemblies are an integral aspect of an academic session at MRIS. Our students learn a lot through the various subjects and themes undertaken during the session. Theme Assemblies are a way of presenting what has been learnt and understood by the students. Besides showcasing their knowledge and understanding of the various subjects, these assemblies aid in enhancing the confidence of the children as they perform on the stage. It not only helps them to get rid of the stage-fright, but also helps them become better orators, dancers, singers and performers.
Theme Assemblies focus on 100% participation from the students, i.e. each and every child from every group in the school participates; which means a theme assembly being conducted for Nursery would have all the Nursery students participating and performing on the stage.
Theme Assemblies are also a unique way of involving the parents in the teaching-learning process. The parents are invited to be a part of the Theme Assemblies and watch their child perform on the stage. This is one of the ways of informing them about the learning that has happened at school, and it goes without saying that it is always a good experience to watch ones child performing on the stage.
Graduation is a ceremony to celebrate the passing out of the Kindergarten students from Early Years, while also ushering them into their “official” start of Grade1. Each Kindergarten student at the year end is conferred with a Graduation Certificate by the Principal of the school, with parents as audience. While the certificates are being handed over to the children, the Centre Incharge speaks a few lines about each child and at the same time wishing the child all the best for the years to come. Thereafter, the students perform in front of the parents in which they showcase their skills learnt during the year.
With parents admiring and smiling, cameras in hand, their children looking like university Graduates with their gowns and caps, it is indeed, a picturesque moment It is a lovely ceremony, and one that will stay in the children’s memories for a long, long time.
Equity Projects and Life Skills
In the previous year, the students actively participated in the cleanliness drives conducted in the school. They also visited orphanages and lepers’ colony. Each One Teach One Policy was followed by the students of this club.
The students also made projects on life skills, health and well being.
This club emphasizes on the development of life skills, teaches the positive and negative effects of peer pressure, abstaining from alcohol and drugs.
The students are given tips on gardening. They plant saplings on the environment day, earth day as well as on their birthdays. The students had also made compost pit in the previous session and were taught the benefits of composting. The students are taken for nature walks and taught about the different kinds of plants and flowers.
