August 28, 2019 CAS Festival Filantropia

 CAS is a core component of IB Diploma Programme which is meant to be the journey to self-discovery. It encourages students to grow personally and socially. It also assists them in developing skills such as cooperation, problem-solving, conflict resolution, creative and critical thinking etc, to highlight their own identities. The students of IB Diploma Programme, successfully organized the CAS festival ‘Filantropia’ on Thursday, August 22. They had set the wheels in motion to use the event not only to address the social issues such as acceptance and environmental degradation but also endeavored to raise funds for charity.

Many team-building activities were also organized, which gave them an opportunity to learn to work collaboratively. A three hour long jam-packed amalgamation of creativity, activity and service, ‘Filantropia’ can be called the first one-of-its -kind School Festival. A student initiative led by Shireen Kang and Parumveer Walia, was a team work of both IBDP and class 12 (ISC) students. An array of activities lined the event schedule, ranging from band performances to a fashion show. Elements such as the photo booth, treasure hunt, calligraphy and sculpting station were the most noteworthy and significant features of the Festival.

The Art Exhibition called ‘Art’istotle displayed the magnificent art works of the participating students which amazed the visitors with its splendor. While the art and craft stall and aesthetics captivated the art connoisseurs, the Gaming Hub “PS4 I Love You” was a delight for teenagers.

The in-house bake sale by the IB students accentuated the event.

Attended by both students and teachers, Filantropia was able to raise more than Rs. 70,000 for charity, as a result of uncompromising, resolute efforts of the Organizing Committee. The school takes pride in the accomplishment of its students with the backing of the faculty, and staff.

August 15, 2019 Independence Day Celebrations 2019

73 years ago, with the eyes of the world upon us, India reinvented herself. Starting out with clarity of purpose towards the future, our country declared in a unified voice that we are one! It wasn’t our distant ancestors, far removed by the eons in time, but our own grandfathers and great grandfathers that gave up everything so that we may live our lives free and independent.

On the occasion of Independence Day, Mr. Mayank Vaishnav, of the department of Hindi, took a page out of history and shared a few snippets from the remarkable legacy of Shri Durga Das Khanna, after whom the Foundation was named and established in 1991. Born in 1908 into an affluent family, he gave scant regard to material comforts and instead threw in his lot with the freedom struggle along with his peers and close friends, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru. Well educated, a voracious reader and an intellectual, he was counted amongst the biggest adversaries to the British Empire in the pre-partition state of Panjab, and was also confined to jail for his role in the freedom movement. In the years after independence, Shri Durga Das Khanna continued to work tirelessly for the downtrodden and underprivileged sections of society, aided and later emulated by his grandson, Atul Khanna, Director of the Durga Das Foundation.

The Student Council and the entire staff, assembled for the flag hoisting ceremony by the Director and the School Captain, Arsheya Kang, which was followed by the National Anthem. Vijayant Chaudhary, a student of Class 9 recited a beautiful, self-composed poem on the occasion which was greatly appreciated by everybody.
