Manva Rachna International School, Ludhiana, prepares students to adapt to the international milieu. The School attempts to do so with the Paragon curriculum (Mosaica Education, U.S.A.) that apprises students with the history of mankind in addition to building their vocabulary, language, emotional quotient, creativity and thinking skills. To showcase the learning of the students, Paragon Assemblies are conducted at the end of every unit. The students of Grades K.G. to V presented the Paragon Assemblies in front of their parents; the experience filled the parents with awe for whatever the children had learnt through the unit. The students shared their learning about Africa, the Vikings, Castles in the Middle Ages, the Silk route, the North Americans and the community helpers in the Middle Ages. They compared and contrasted history with the present milieu.
During the course of the unit, they reflected upon various aspects of history and understood the reasons for it. They also shared a host of new words that they had added to their vocabulary during Paragon Sessions. The tiny tots of K.G. talking about tee-pee and galito amazed everyone. Grade IV students sharing their learning about feelings and expressions which was certainly a remarkable demonstration of their E.Q. level. The art work and models created by the students drew everyone’s attention. The students had created everything during school hours with the help of their teachers. No project work was sent home. The music and dance associated with the theme was also presented by the students. All the students were given a fair chance to showcase their learning. The parents were overwhelmed as they witnessed their wards perform with exemplary confidence. They appreciated the School’s effort at grooming the students so well. Mrs Shilpi Gill, Vice-principal, Manav Rachna International School, Ludhiana, congratulated the students and staff for the grand success of the Paragon Assemblies.
