Greetings to all Parents & GIISians!
The month of June witnessed a freshening start from 15th June. It was a great pleasure seeing our students back after a long break.
Our team was thrilled to welcome all the students from Grade 1-9. A special assembly was conducted for the students to bridge the gap between the school and students.
The assembly was addressed by me wherein the theme of the talk was the importance of punctuality and eating right to have a healthy day and healthy life ahead.
The school was filled with the zeal and zest of happiness, while students were happy meeting their friends. The teachers were also elated to teach their students under the same roof.
To make the students aware of humanity along with the importance of health we organized ‘The International Yoga Day’ with the theme 'Yoga for Humanity' which was celebrated with great enthusiasm in the campus on 21st June.
After the school had reopened to fully physical classes, this was the first live celebration on our campus. It was decided that all the members would start the day with the yoga session.
The students were enlightened about the fact of how this whole universe started from our own body and soul and how yoga made us conscious of everything within us and built a sense of awareness.
The session began by seeking the blessings of the Almighty by chanting the Gayatri Mantra. Asanas starting with warming up and stretching were followed by a series of Tadasana, Surya Namaskar Vrikshasana, Garudasana, Urdhva Hastottanasana, Hasta Uttanasana and BhujangAsana.
The students were explained about the benefits of each asana. Then they were taught about different Mudras for health and well being. They also practised the Surya Bhedana Pranayama and finally concluded with meditation. The asanas were performed to relieve stress, reduce joint pains, and enhance the flexibility of the back.
We at GIIS always remain young as we play and create younger minds to explore their boundless creativity. To acknowledge the main theme of the month – Health is wealth, a special assembly on the theme of health was conducted. The students displayed a well-organized assembly where the thought for the day was delivered by Suraj Praveen of Grade 7, Daily news read out by Noreen of Grade 9. Words play an enormous part in our lives and are therefore deserving of the closest study keeping this as our base. A Vocabulary based on health was read out by Shrihan Desai of Grade 9 and a Poem on a healthy heart was read out by Ishitha Gupta of Grade 9.
While everyone likes to listen to stories, Mrs Kavya Attra narrated a thought-provoking story on ‘Health is Wealth’ in the teacher’s talk session. The students took away with them the message of “The importance of being Healthy”. As we believe good health is a secret of every happy man. We always motivate our students to take proper care of their health.
The commencement of the new academic session post the summer break has been well adapted by our parents & students for the smooth functioning of the school. Heartfelt appreciation & thanks to each one of you.
As the very first assessment of the school year is shortly to commence, I request the parents to constantly monitor & support the children for the best of their performances. Best wishes to all our GIISians.
Though constantly being in connect with you on MYGIIS, we encourage you to come and speak to us in person for a more detailed perspective of the school. I look forward to working with you as we help create a school where parents are welcome to meet the staff & principal with a prior appointment, students are engaged in meaningful learning and the staff members are valued and appreciated for their efforts.
Wishing you a safe & happy July.
