The Brigade School, Malleswaram
Loud. Louder. Loudest!
The World Read Aloud Day was celebrated in full literary fan and fervour. The significance of this day was highlighted during the morning assembly tracing its inception to 2010. Making reading aloud an engaging experience for both the reader and audience, it provides an opportunity for people all around to celebrate the joy of reading. The special sessions held at the school were a rare sight to see while teachers turned storytellers and enthralled students.
Online Classes learning in the new normal
Although students are now logging into the school-like atmosphere from the comforts of their homes, it is exciting to see exuberant enthusiasm and never a dull moment surrounding them. Students of Classes 9, 10 and 12 have begun their academic year by attending virtual classes for all core subjects, while teachers have taken to using innovative teaching aids and powerpoint presentations to effectively engage with them.
Making sweet music while the world is locked down
The Greek philosopher, Plato, once said “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” Thus, acknowledging this fact, The Brigade School unlocked the magic of rhythm and tune on World Music Day. The school organised a virtual event that brought together students, teachers and parents. What started off with teachers highlighting the significance of music in our lives, ended in a crescendo of voices, finger snaps, hand claps and rhythmic swaying, as they joined students in singing ‘Good things just take time’ composed by the Gaither Vocal Band.
Going places Going native
The field trip to Our Native Village, Hesarghatta, was met with oodles of excitement by students. It was an enlivening experience to see students opening up to the greener side of the world as they took in the sights and sounds of a truly natural environment. Watching livestock and playing with pets, they absolutely immersed themselves in the moment. They were fascinated by the bullock cart ride and even got their hands dirty, learning pottery. This was truly an ‘out of school experience’ that taught them a lot while having immense fun.
