                                            A thankful heart will value people more than things, it will value a smile more than riches, it will find joy in giving than grabbing. Keeping these values in mind, the children sang a prayer ‘Everything I am’. It was a heart touching performance.

                                            Sharing is the master key to success, in all applications of human life.” “For it is in giving that we receive.” The next group performed a role play ‘Sharing is Caring’. The audience was thrilled with performance of the students.

The students performed to the energetic music of the song ‘I am Happy’ by Pharrell Williams, which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

                                            The students of 5C could successfully send across this message that  a person who sticks to his moral values bears a good character and is loved by everyone.

                                             

                                              Plantation Drive -an Eco club activity

                                              Arwachin International School has initiated a small step to create and develop awareness and a sense of ecological environment among our students. It is also a noble responsibility to inculcate  the benefits of raising plantation, kitchen garden etc in a student’s mind and to take different biodiversity improvement measures through different activities of our eco-club.

                                              This idea was encouraged and enhanced by the Principal, Mrs.Swapna Nair. A plantation programme was conducted in the school on 4th of Dec’2018. The students and the teachers of the Eco-Club along with the principal planted different kinds of saplings outside the school campus.

                                              A bamboo fence was also constructed to encourage the vertical garden in the premises as an Eco development  programme as per the guidelines and instruction of the state government and the central government. 

                                                Interactive Assembly of class 7A

                                                The students of class 7A presented their Interactive assembly on 1st December, 2018. The theme was ‘HEALTHY ARWACHINIANS, HEALTHY INDIA’.

                                                According to World Health Organisation, “Better health is central to human happiness and well-being. It also makes an important contribution to economic progress, as healthy population live longer, is more productive, and save more.”

                                                The interactive assembly started with a discussion on ‘Importance of good health and how to maintain a healthy life’. It was followed by introducing Master Sehat and Miss Sehat as the health mascot of the school who busted the myths related to healthy eating habits. Some charts were shown highlighting the importance of checking the contents before buying any product from the market. As we all know that our market is full of adulterated products, it becomes difficult for us to differentiate between the pure and adulterated products. The students demonstrated a number of experiments to find out the pure products. Keeping in mind the theme of the assembly, the students presented a NUKKAR NATAK to educate the masses.

                                                Since we live in an adulterated world, it becomes more important for us to focus on our health. This message was successfully portrayed by the students of 7A. The Interactive assembly was thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated by the Principal and the audience.
