‘Nation First, Always First’
As the country celebrated its 77th Independence Day with great fervor and the tricolor was seen as a brand in everything from cookies, sandwiches to mugs and cushion covers, not to mention the tricolor balloons and the themed attires that marked the festivities, S.E.I.S, chose to explore what the day marked 77 years ago – FREEDOM!
The Chief guest, along with other dignitaries hoisted the national flag and all in
unison sang the National Anthem. The spirit of patriotism was further enhanced by a couple of patriotic songs, a dance, speeches and a skit performed by the students. Our director, Mr. Mahesh Desai and our guest Ms. Neha Swami addressed the gathering and briefed about the significance of the day. The programme ended with the National song and distribution of sweets to all who graced the occasion.
‘The most important thing is to never stop questioning’
A science workshop was conducted in S.E.I.S. on 23rd August, 2023 by Mr. Gaurav Save (Admitted MS at Columbia University, New York) and Atif Jamil (B.Tech – Computer Science, IIT Guwahati).
Fun with Science & insightful Career counselling paving the way for successful future of our students was the main moto of the workshop. The students of grade 9 and 10 gained ample knowledge and insight for their future.
‘By choosing our path we choose our destination’
The first open house of the academic year 2023 – 24 was conducted on 26th August, 2023. This was a great platform where the parents and students could meet their teachers and know about their progress. It also helped them to understand the ways and means in which they can improve.
“The bond between a brother and sister is unbreakable, just like the thread of Rakhi.”
To encourage the bond of a brother-sister relationship, at S.E.I.S, we conducted the rakhi-making activity on 29th August, 2023. Children brought rakhi-making materials like molly, ribbon, silk thread, pearls, stars, etc. from home and with the help of their teachers in the class, all the girls along with their friends made their rakhi.
The boys were engaged in making a photo frame with a photograph of their sister in it, as a gift for their sisters.
To mark the significance of the day, the girls tied rakhis to the boys.
The students of grade 9 conducted a short programme to address the importance of the day.
No Books Day
“Leave behind the baggage, it’s ‘No Books Day’ today! Let your mind fly free.”
A “No Books Day” in school is an initiative where students are encouraged or required to attend school without carrying their bags or backpacks. The ‘No Books Day’ was conducted on 31st August, 2023. The concept of no-bag days is a landmark step to ease the burden on school children and shift focus from bookish knowledge that the Indian education system propagates. The teachers planned special activities and lessons to make this day more engaging and educational.
Meri Maati Mera Desh
This campaign was conducted on 14th August to pay homage to martyrs while promoting patriotism and national service. Mumbai’s civic body along with students of SEIS planted saplings as part of ‘Vasudha Vandan’.
