Eicher School stepped into its 25th year since its inception in 1994. Students decided to begin the celebration by contributing their bit to the environment. As a first step, students of class XI and XII commerce & humanities surveyed the markets to find out the use of plastic bags and if they can be replaced by newspaper bags. The response they received was overwhelming. They also understood that the local vendors usually use plastic bags because of their durability & low cost.

Thereafter all the students across school made newspaper bags which were then distributed by students of V and VI to the vendors of NIT-1,2,3,5, 21-C,46, Green Field, Green Valley etc. More than 4500 newspaper bags were made and distributed.

It was a great effort taken by the Eicherites to reduce the use of plastic bags and save environment from the hazards that plastic bags pose. They decided to carry on this activity throughout the year and in the coming years too.

 

 


 

 Parent Orientation Programme

pop collage

The Parent Orientation Programme for Pre Nursery and LKG parents was held on May(Saturday), 2018.

Parents got into the shoes of their children and went through a typical day of the child at school. They got a feel of the activities in the zones. They got to know how ‘learning by doing’ gets children to involve their five senses and thereby retain what they learn.

Yet another highlight was the parent counselling session by Ms. Priyanka Tripathi. Parents got an insight into how they could become more effective and content as parents. They had an opportunity to ask questions and discuss common issues.

                                                                               

The different learning  sessions helped us understand the way my kid will learn at school. Very knowledgeable session.

I am happy and satisfied. Of all the activities, I enjoyed painting the most… I love colouring as it changes my mood!

We loved the unique and empathetic teaching methodology followed at Eicher. Complete package was wonderful and we feel euphoric to be here.

debate training

 

Recently some of our students had attended a debate training workshop at The Doon School, Dehradun. They returned with a very enriching experience. To share their learning with their peers, these students conducted 2 sessions on debate training - one for classes 11-12 on 26.04.2018 and the other for classes 9 -10 on 27.04.2018.

 
Not only did they share their learning, but they also shared the finer nuances of effective debating. It proved to be a very fruitful session.

career counseling apr 2018

12th standard is the last stage of a student’s school life. After 12th standard, a student has to decide his path and his career. This step has to be taken after lots of planning and thinking. one just can’t afford to choose what to do after 12th standard carelessly. Keeping this in mind a career counselling session was held separately for class XII science , commerce and humanities students on April 11 , Wednesday . The speakers for the day, Mr Hans Kumar, from Faculty of Physics, Amity Institute of competitive examinations ( for science) and Mr. Anubhav Rakheja , Product Head of Career Launcher ( for humanities and commerce) appraised the students on the various careers available, the institutes that provide the courses, the form filling and all necessary details. In the interactive session the speakers also stressed on a sound back up plan, in case the need arises. Students interacted freely and cleared their doubts . The session was immensely beneficial for the students as they got an insight into various careers they can pursue after completing schooling.
