Project 'Stay Left'

One of the most specific requirements of school education is the safety of the children, especially the young kids of pre-primary and primary classes. This is also to instill the awareness of civic sense in their young minds. 'Project Left' was initiated by the PYP Coordinator of RBKIA which was followed by the Home Room advisor of PYP 3. On 27 August at RBKIA, the students of PYP 3 prepared several arrows from red colored tinted papers, cut the into shape, got them laminated and gave them a proper look. The students chopped the extra plastic sheet of the laminated arrows. They printed 'Stay Left' signs using ICT and got them laminated after properly arranging them on one single lamination sheet. It is heartening to say that the students have the awareness of using the resources carefully while maintaining a good standard of the exhibits. One of the students of PYP 3 Ayushi, offered her services to collect all the plastic clippings and save them for 'Acorn Project' (another on-going service project of RBKIA students). These arrows along with the 'Stay Left' signs were, then, stuck by the side of the staircase indicating everyone to keep left while climbing up the staircase. They care for everybody's safety. Great work!
Enjoy the pictures of their effort in this activity!

It is for everybody's safety

We learn to be disciplined

and of course the civic sense!

Great work!

Decorating The School Dispaly Boards

The Service in  PYP involves appropriate action to be taken by the student which is a component of service in the widest sense of the word: service to fellow students, and to the larger community, both in and outside the school. Through such service, students are able to grow both personally and socially, developing skills such as cooperation, problem solving, conflict resolution, and creative and critical thinking. Moreover, these actions are ways in which the students exhibit their commitment to the attributes of the learner profile and to the attitudes that we seek to engender within the PYP classroom. (Making PYP Happen 2007)
On 27 August, our PYP 5 kids decided to make school's floor plans (initiated by teachers). They brainstorm the layout. They printed the labels using ICT and cut them. Following the rough plan, they stuck the labels on the floor plans. Here are few pictures in which the PYP 5 is seen preparing charts of plans for PYP Floor 1 & 2.

We are preparing the plan for PYP floor #1
Learning new things is an experience in itself
I know how to do it well!
What a joy to make a chart for the display board!
Oh! I am doing a great work!
Not only interesting but also enriching experience! Isn't it?
Every situation is a learning!
I am loving it!
And this is the plan for PYP floor #2
Its fun doing different things!
Devoted to work totally!
Let us give it some finishing touches!
It's teamwork!
And the floor plan is ready!

Well done, PYP 5 students!

RBKIA- PYP Students Sharing Happiness with the Manav Seva Sangh Children

On 18 August, our PYP 1 & 2 children went to Manav Seva Sangh, Sion, Mumbai for PYP-Service. They tied rakhies on the hands of Sangh's children and gave them pencil boxes and sweets, only to see joy on their faces. These rakhies were made by our students themselves. The Sangh children, in turn, sang songs and performed dances to celebrate those moments. Our PYP children applauded for their amazing performance. We want our students to feel, value and demonstrate the PYP attitudes.
