A Rally for the Awareness of
Celebrating Eco-Friendly Diwali
Arwachinians are never away from their duty to protect our mother nature. In solidarity with the Government of Delhi, we also joined our hands to empower the campaign to reduce the use of crackers this Diwali. The ‘Eco – club’ and the ‘Health and Wellness club’ of our school jointly organized a rally in Dilshad Garden on 7th November, 2015 to sensitize the citizens about the harmful effects of crackers.
Children made posters and banners with slogans written on them. These slogans explained how the use of crackers cause noise and air pollution and how it makes the life difficult for people like patients with respiratory diseases, babies, old citizens and even animals and birds.
Our efforts were highly appreciated by the people of the area.
Dengue fever, also known as the break bone fever, is a mosquito –borne disease caused by the dengue virus. It is transmitted by several species of mosquito within the genus Adese. Its symptoms include fever, headache vomiting, muscle and joint pain.
The Indian capital, Delhi, is in the grip of the worst outbreak of dengue in the last five years. More than 6000 cases have been recorded this year and are yet to increase. In several cases, it develops into a life threatening fever resulting in continuous bleeding, low level platelets, dangerously low blood pressure and damage of brain and immune system.
The students of AIS took the initiative at their level to create awareness for the prevention of Dengue fever. They designed meaningful posters through which they described the ways of preventing dengue like using mosquito repellents on all exposed areas , cleaning the coolers regularly, using covered dustbins etc.
The students of AIS wear long sleeves and full trousers regularly to school.
Prevention is better than cure. So knowing the worth of life, we should try to spread awareness to prevent the harmful effects of dengue
HEALTH & WELLNESS CLUB

Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience and good health. Keeping this in mind the students of health and wellness club prepared two dishes under the guidance of their teachers as a part of their club activity. The students prepared Mango split and sour & Sweet gram. The mango split was full of mango pulp and ice-cream which is a rich source of milk protein and fruit contains a lot of vitamins and nutrients essential for growing children .It was topped with nuts like almonds, raisins etc. which are great sources of calcium and protein. Protein helps to build muscles, aid in with the mood, stress, anxiety and even depression and calcium is good for bones. The students also made gram chat and to make it healthier home- made curd was added to it. The students were also encouraged to write a healthy tip on the health cards made by them for their teachers.

Swachch Bharat Abhiyan
Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Keeping this saying in mind the students of the Health & Wellness club planned to visit the neighbouring slum area to educate the people residing there and make them aware of the need of a clean environment. On 1st December after cleaning the school grounds they formed small groups and went to the neighbouring slum area. They interacted with many shopkeepers, house wives and children. They told them about Swachch Bharat Abhiyan that was launched by the Prime Minister on 2nd October 2014. They motivated them to keep the surroundings clean by telling them how it helps them to stay healthy.
On 25th July 2014 the students of the Health and Wellness Club & the Eco Club of Arwachin International School celebrated the Vanmahotsava. Earlier During their club periods they had already made posters and slogans on the theme Save Trees.
On 25th July they planted 4 saplings of Arjun tree in the school premises and went out of the school to plant 16 more
saplings of Arjun tree in a neighbouring park. Our Academic Director Mrs. S. Swarupencouraged the children by
planting the first tree in the school premises. The students also tried to motivate the general public by chanting slogans on the need to save trees.
The teachers also motivated them to own the trees and take care of them. Students were very delighted to do their bit to save trees in order to make the earth greener.
A healthy mind dwells in a healthy body and surely food is an essential part of good health.

They chose to make Mixed Fruit Trifle and Sour and Sweet Gram. The criterion to select the dishes was very simple. The dish had to be healthy and tasty. The trifle was full of fruits and milk protein and was topped with a sponge cake. Gram is a good source of protein and to make it more healthy , home-made cheese was added to it along with sweet and sour chutney. The whole wheat ‘Khakhra’ was also added to give it a crunchy taste.
Students also made greeting cards and wrote a healthy tip inside each card for their teachers. Everybody enjoyed the food and the bonhomie that ensued.
