El Campeonato | March 17th 0800hrs | Mystic land of Epiphany

Some things are just worth fighting for. Some are just worth dying for. More so when legends need to be told and champions honed. This championship is what we believe is the beginning of the end of a school of thought.

THE CHAMPIONSHIP:

A day long intra-class athletic championship. Just sports. No books. No gyan – Just before the examinations.

WHO’S INVOLVED:

The Pegasus, the Dragons and the Unicorns from the mysterious land of the epiphany dynasty-each with 15 members chosen to handle their intra-team dynamics while fighting it out on the ground for their team’s honour.

The Ammi-Abba race

Most of this term, we’ve been making a conscious effort to get the kids down to the playground and smell some dust. Early this month as we were trying to infuse the elements of team work in them, we decided to get them to do the ‘Amoeba race’. After a brief description of ‘Amoeba’ we…

Emotions and Equations

Was it the impeccable sound system? Was it the unwavering emotions in the song? Was it the crowd or was it the realization of the importance of the whole event. Some days are just worth living. Today is one of those. The kids had their annual day showcase today and as I walked out after their performance, the…

Midway to the Supreme Showcase

This is it. We now have the data. We now have the proof. Two more units and we should be all set to perform in front of an audience 15000 strong. THIS is the tipping point.

The Three doctrines of Transitional Leadership

[Pun intended] The Event management team in the Epiphany Dynasty decided to raise funds for their third unit projects. Besides organizing a movie showcase they also ran a sale of important commodities. Through these activities – under the hood- they formulated and exhibited the three doctrines of Transitional Leadership. Readers are advised to read through…

Gearing up

Tomorrow as the dawn cracks in, we’d be introducing our kids to their new projects for this unit. We plan to make this units showcase much better organised than the last one and give them a better support structure. We consciously decided to make do with their extra classes and just give them time to…

The battle so far

It’s just about a month that the second academic year has started. The past four weeks have been really hectic juggling the plethora of tasks left on the table. The kids have slowly started getting back to the regular schedules and attendance is almost touching 100 percent. The much needed break that I took hiking…

When a Dynasty is born…

Yet another day was coming to an end and the people of the land were tending their chores. It was all one peaceful ambiance with just minor disruptions here and there.  To help manage the affairs, the architect of the land decided to pull up a few responsible men and women and give them the authority…

Dynamics of the playground…

Couple of  hours back I opened my student tracker,  just sat back and started mulling over how each of my kids have changed over the past few months. As I went through the list reading each of the kids names, images of the kid kept flashing in and out of my mind and most of…

Reflections by the roadside…

As I take one last gulp of hot tea from a roadside stall, Ronnie wickedly smiles and brings his hand forward with a congratulatory gesture. He just says – ‘One month’ and grins wildly! I wink back, pay for the tea and walk back towards the school gate. As we quickly make our way through…

Brain Gate

Asked the kids to form a song/poem for their kingdom. This is what one of the teams came up with in fifteen minutes! Read: Our team love me so much. I also love them. Thank you. Math Oh Math you are so great. I know this addition so how much I eating I can tell…

Tell me why…

Was stumped by this innocent letter from a kid in my class. Yukta – One of the smartest kids, questions me[ In RED and gives place for me to answer!] on how I came across the idea of playing the Age of Empires game! In this game that we play in the class, she happens…

Home visit

Yukta and her sister Pooja[From another section in the same school] have been asking us to visit their home for quite sometime now. And now they’re threatening to give us letters every single day till we turn up there!

Zebra

We’d asked the kids to find out why a zebra is black and white in colour. Ali – A kid who was in a marathi medium school until last year, comes up with this paper the next day. ‘Zebra mothe is black and waite. The zebra is black and wate. Jab upar wale ne usko…
