Anger is one of the most common and easily identifiable emotion that we all experience. Students can get angry sometimes. There are few students in the class that struggle with anger management more than others. Working with students with anger issues requires understanding that they haven't yet mastered the skills and habits necessary to manage their anger effectively. They are still learning, and anger management and other social emotional learning skills are just another of many things we are responsible for teaching them.
Effective anger management means giving students coping strategies to manage their anger and frustration in healthy, respectful ways when those difficult feelings arise. To assimilate the same, students of class V and VI exercised some enduring anger free and joyful activities like- Meditation, listening music activity for art appreciation, Mindfulness, physical and mental exercises, Yoga asanas etc. These ways provide students both physically and emotionally a safe place for learning and helping them to become more positive, productive and pious in their life.
We would like to thank our honorable Director Sir and Principal Ma'am for providing these opportunities to organize such enriching activities timely.

To celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, CBSE has proposed a list of activities to be conducted by schools from October 2019 to October 2020.
In direction to this , The Social Science Department has organised an educational excursion for the students of class VI, in which they got a wonderful opportunity to visit Gandhi Smriti on 5th February, 2020. Gandhi Smriti at Old Birla house on Tees January Marg is a venerated place where Mahatma Gandhi's epic life ended on 30th January 1948. Students were guided through the richly mounted corridors of the museum where there was a pictorial display of the freedom struggle and how Mohandas became a Mahatma. The students in awe saw in vivid scenes from Gandhi ji's life. They also walked past the stone imprints of Bapu's sacred last footsteps at the place of his martyrdom. They also watched a short documentary and visited the eternal Gandhi multimedia museum on the upper floor. They were also fascinated to see the 'Khadi emporium' and get motivated to use Swadeshi items like Khadi clothes and learnt how Khadi used to make with Charkha. To observe the understanding of students the follow up worksheet was also done by students.
This excursion aims to sensitize and aware students about Gandhi ji's beliefs and principles such as 'Unity in strength', 'Believe in Satyagraha', 'Truth and Non Violence are the biggest weapons'. A peep into this great Mahatma's life surely inspired the students and it was all on all a novel, enriching and enjoyable experience for them.
I would like to show my gratitude towards our honorable Director Sir, Principal Ma'am and HOD, Mrs. Bhawna Agarwal for providing us these opportunities to organize such enriching programs.

Making School Anger Free Zone
"Control The Anger And Spread Unlimited Love And Happiness "
As directed by CBSE the schools should manage 'anger' to endure a fun learning environment and happy school. Making the schools 'Anger-free zones' will help students in developing affective skills and in eradicating emotions like fear, hurt and disrespect which are the by-name products of anger. This change will help students become more mentally and emotionally strong and wealthy.
The best way to teach children the value of 'freedom from anger' is by setting examples ourselves. Some basic changes that can be resorted to include - genuinely smiling at students, talking to them calmly.
Keeping this in mind a week (13th Jan. to 17th Jan. ,2020) long activities were planned for students of Classes I and II in which they practiced meditation, breathing exercises, stretching, mindfulness, laughter therapy gardening, drawing smiling faces to name a few.
Students also took "Anger Pledge" in which they promised to stay positive, treat others with kindness and respect them.
"Any kind of emotional management is easier if you are well and have a healthy mind and body "
