The budding poets of St Lawrence!

“Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity.” - William Wordsworth Every student has some hidden talent in them and we as educators need to pave the right way for them to find it. This year in Grade 3 we found some awesome poets excited to express their emotions through poetry. Our students learnt to write their own cinquain poem using nouns, adjectives, verbs, phrases and synonyms.Through this writing skill, the students also reinforced the various grammar concepts and turned them into some creative verses using their imagination. It was an amazing opportunity for our young budding poets to gain confidence and also to explore the hidden poet in them.

The Grade 3 student council takes responsibility of a clean Diwali!

Diwali is a festival of lights and is celebrated with great enthusiasm. We, the Lawrentians, have taken an initiative to share the importance of celebrating an eco-friendly Diwali with our students.We are proud of our Grade 3 Student Council students who have shared different ways to celebrate an eco-friendly Diwali this year. Each & every student has vowed to ban firecrackers and celebrate a pollution free festival.They are determined to protect each life around them. The pandemic has definitely created distance between us but our students are ready to create change in this world through their right and courageous actions.

Children's day at St. Lawrence!

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”This quote shows how every child is full of potential and if nurtured well they can become strong pillars of society tomorrow. We at St.Lawrence never fail to make children feel special every day, especially on Children’s Day and this year was no different even though we couldn’t personally meet them.This year our students celebrated Children’s Day in advance. They had beautiful interactions online about the importance of this day. They expressed their determinations to become strong individuals and make their parents and their school proud. They also spoke about how much they have learnt this year and have grown to become more prepared to deal with situations.We at St Lawrence are extremely proud of each child!

Diwali celebration at St. Lawrence High School!

Diwali is the festival of 'lights' and to let children know that the festival should only be celebrated with lights, St Lawrence High School and Junior college celebrated Diwali with a major message of 'Ban crackers'.The Covid pandemic has given an added reason why crackers should not be burst. The students were made aware of this and asked to take responsibility for the safety of infected people and recovering patients by refraining from crackers this year.They were also taught to be kind to animals because they can’t speak for themselves when they suffer the hazards of loud crackers.The other disadvantages caused by crackers such as waste creation, air and noise pollution, child labour, accidents and injuries were explained to children while making them aware. Every child was able to understand the gravity of the situation and determined to take action now to make a long lasting impact on Mother Earth.They demonstrated this understanding by making many art works and posters and slogans. All their work added beauty and joy to the overall celebration of Diwali this year.St. Lawrence high school and Junior college wishes everyone a very happy and safe Diwali!

The Lawrentians pledge to ban crackers!

The future generation will be safe if we take the right steps now. St. Lawrence High School initiated the complete program where the effects of bursting firecrackers were explained through detailed presentations.This year’s Diwali, we felt it was very crucial to take firm steps , hence the students were made aware of the facts that - smoke from firecrackers could prove to be dangerous for Covid-19 patients and if we wanted to support patients and take care of the other people especially those who have just recovered from the virus we will have to stay away from the fire crackers.The students of Grade 4 pledged to ban the firecrackers and also took an initiative of making posters and sharing them with the other classes and requested even the parents to follow the ban on crackers. This is how the Lawrentians celebrate a responsible Diwali in 2020.

Passionate poets of St. Lawrence!

Image Image Image Image Image

St. Lawrence High school and Junior college had a highly engaging and entertaining workshop on poetry writing for Grade 4. The inspiration behind this workshop was to foster young minds to be able to pen their ideas unapologetically. The students learnt how to write a poem by studying figures of speech in detail. They loved Alliteration. To add to the fun, the children were made to make their poems inside the first alphabet of their own names. They enjoyed colouring and decorating their alphabets with the poems inside. The rhymes and vocabulary used added beauty to the poems. The children at St. Lawrence have always loved to express their thoughts and ideas through poems. This workshop was a good opportunity for them to learn the craft and hone their skills gradually.

Enriching hands on learning experiments at St. Lawrence!

Image Image Image Image

We, at St. Lawrence, encourage the children to conduct experiments/observe and learn. An experiment named 'Milk Reaction', was done in connection with the theme 'Moo' in Grade 1.The experiment was performed by mixing milk with one drop of food colour and utensil cleaning liquid and the children observed the changes that took place in colour and texture. The students, of course loved this experiment and wanted to do it over and over again as they were fascinated with the explosion of colours and the swirling effects seen and also they could perform easily.They also enjoyed the activity because it fed their curiosity and also helped them learn a lot. The main objective of this experiment was to bring alive the scientists within the students and help them to record their observations confidently and share their thoughts.

The Lawrentians learn about the Presidents of India!

Image Image Image Image Image

It is very important for today’s generation to know that the President of India, officially the “President of the Republic of India, is the ceremonial head of the state of India and the Commander in Chief of the Indian Armed Forces. Hence, the Grade 4 students were made aware of these facts.A group of children were guided on the making of a PowerPoint presentation about the past presidents. They were also taught how to share screen on Zoom so that they could show the important slides to their friends.The students understood the significance of this task and carried it out sincerely which encouraged the other students to observe keenly and to learn well.The aim of reinforcing this topic was beautifully met and the parents were surprised to see their children taking charge of the lesson and delivering it with so much confidence.

Dussehra celebration at St. Lawrence!

Image Image Image Image

Dussehra, also known as Vijayadashmi , the victory of good over evil, was celebrated virtually in the primary section of St. Lawrence. It started with a great interactive session with the curious kids wanting to know more about Dussehra. The significance of the festival was shared with the students.Each child actively participated and interacted with the teachers, they were also explained as to that why the name of this festival is Dussehra that is Dasha ("ten") and Hara ("defeat"). The significance of the nine colours worn on different days of Navratri was also explained to the students. The aim of applying these values in our daily life was accomplished by correlating the significance of Dussehra with overcoming ones negativity every day. The students were made to realise how they can overcome their negativity by not being sluggish, lazy, jealous or hateful. At the end a beautiful art activity i.e. making a wall hanging was done with the help of our art Teacher. The children came up with unexpected masterpieces and cheerfully posed for the screen shot. It was indeed a victorious celebration which triggered an inner change in each child.

Learning to save Mother Nature, one wrapper a time!

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

At St. Lawrence, it's our constant endeavour to sensitize our students, the future leaders, towards the importance of taking responsibility for the planet. Every year, a variety of activities are conducted with the students towards this objective. This year though education has transitted from physical class to virtual classroom, we haven't lost sight of our goals. Hence a special activity for conserving the environment was conducted with the students. The students were shown what an 'ecobrick' is, how to make it and its uses. The students were fascinated that plastic wrapper, which they always looked at as trash, could be put to use positively without much effort. With great zeal and enthusiasm, the students made their own ecobricks with plastic wrappers and bottles. It is our pledge and aim to foster the future generation into conscientious and considerate individuals.

Poetry opens a garden of possibilities

Image Image Image Image Image

St. Lawrence High School and Junior College has always aimed at developing excellent language skills in students. In order to accomplish this aim, students were taught poetry writing and appreciation. The students were introduced to different types of poems and poetic devices but this teaching was incorporated along with art and craft. The students were taught strategies to compose different poems like Limericks, Haiku, Acrostics Couplets and to present their creativity using different shapes of trees, leaves, icecreams etc. They presented their poems with the help of beautiful colourful cutouts .These well-integrated activities were very productive as they not only brought the artistic talents of students but also helped them to develop verbal dexterity. This also helped the students to take a break from their regular academics and engaged in learning which was fun and beneficial.

A Tribute to the World Famous Author

The students of class 5 and 6 celebrated their favourite author Roald Dahl during their online classes. Students read books of Roald Dahl from class 2 as part of their curriculum.

Enthusiastically, they did not only dress up as their favourite Roald Dahl character but were also ready with their props and dialogues. The students happily shared their favorite parts of the book and why they liked the particular character. The most exciting was watching their class mates become the characters from the book they are reading and enacting a chapter out of it in the form of a video. This activity was aimed to develop curiosity and a love for books among the students and for them to explore drama skills.

"When the students became the teachers!"

Image Image Image Image Image

A General knowledge project was undertaken by the Grade 4 children of St.Lawrence High School. It all began with an idea to enable the children to do something extraordinary. This idea culminated into the children conducting an entire segment of class with the help of technology.The topic being Rajasthan, the children read the lessons, gathered information and organized everything on a PowerPoint presentation rather than on a paper file project. The images and animations added by them were unbelievably clever, as if they always knew how to use PowerPoint with ease.Within no time, the children came up with their project and explanation. They not only created everything on their own, but they also conducted the GK period during the online class. They developed an efficient style of quizzing so that every student could learn effectively. They also used an interactive Q n A method to present their topic.This GK lesson conducted entirely by the students was a roaring success and was met with huge applause. Such a confident and amazing performance by the students left the teachers full of pride and fulfilled.

"The Lawrentians Learn About Good Touch - Bad Touch!"

Image Image Image Image

In today's world it is very important to teach our children the difference between good touch and bad touch. A good touch can be a loving hug by a loved one and this same hug can become a bad touch if given forcefully by any unwanted person. It is therefore our duty as an educational institution to make a child aware about this.In St. Lawrence High School, we conducted online sessions on the topic 'Good touch and bad touch' with our primary section students to ensure that they are well aware of the ‘touches’ they encounter in their lives. Students were shown videos related to the topic and introduced to terms like 'strangers' and 'blackmail'.The students were taught what to do when an unknown person touches them and how to respond. E.g. - shout back, say a firm no, run away from that place or person, and tell someone they trust – like their parents or teachers or friends or anyone else whom they can turn to for support and comfort.Through this topic we tried to enable every student to become more confident & empowered to take defensive action. The aim was to inculcate the values of independence, courage, honesty & trustworthiness in them. We are very thankful to the parents who supported us throughout the session and understood how important it is to introduce such ideas early in a child’s life. We involved the parents because, we feel, the parents support, patience and listening ability at a time when the child is subjected to this is very important.

World Mental Health Day

All aspects of our lives are affected by our mental health and protecting our children’s mental health is our duty, not just as educators, but as responsible adults.

On mental health day, let us all look out and care for each other. Let us also pledge to be open and discuss mental health problems and ensure that the future generations never hesitate to discuss issues of mental health .

She read out excerpts from her book at the event and the children just couldn’t get enough. She masterfully weaved a tale full of witty humor and substance, wherein children encountered colourful characters. She conducted games and the children were bubbling with happiness and enthusiasm. The session was a new fun experience for the children which will also motivate them to write their own stories.

National Symbols of India at St. Lawrence!

Image Image Image Image

"It is our endeavour to teach students about their national flag and other national symbols from a young age, so that they can develop a sense of pride and belonging to their country. Keeping this in mind we, at St. Lawrence High School, have a complete syllabus on Indian studies for Grade 1, in which they learn about the all these national symbols of India and how to respect them.They are taught how the Indian Flag was designed by Pengali Venkayya and also about the significance of the “Lotus flower” and why it is our national flower. They also learn about the characteristics of our national bird – “The Peacock”. They are also made aware of the national emblem on Indian currency, stamps and important government documents. This help them to learn the importance and seriousness of this national symbol.The aim of teaching all these National Symbols is essentially for the students to understand that they represent the history, culture, values and ethics of our nation. This indirectly, helps to inculcate the value of pride in their Indian heritage right from very young age.
