Teacher's Day Celebration - 2016

On 31st August 2016 there was a grand celebration of Teacher’s Day, a day where we pay homage to the, “Greatteachers of India and Bangladesh,” as Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan had put it. The celebration was filled with laughter and fun as everybody rejoiced and enjoyed themselves. Everybody looked quite charming on day.

The function started off with something entertaining right off the bat with a felicitation. Teachers were asked to guess their colleague based on the description shown. Upon the right answer, the teacher and their parents were felicitated requested to come to the stage via the glamorous red carpet where they were offered presents from our beloved principal Mr Sanjay Nandi, with Shole, coconut, red rose & many more gifts.

The next event was a speech given by Grade IX Students. The first speech outlined the history of teacher’s day in hopes of inspiring students with the great achievements of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. The second speech given by another student of Grade IX fuelled this motivation and was given in hopes that the students of Podar International School(CIE), Kalyan will be able to say “thank you” to a teacher, and truly mean it. Continued by a wonderful poem on teacher`s day by grade 7 student.

The fun didn’t end at the felicitation for there were games for the teachers as well as their parents. Parents were asked to guess the singer/actor/film of the song playing. It was entertaining and some parents joined in the singing as well! The second game (which was for the teachers) asked the class teachers to guess their students. The teachers were only given a picture of their students’ eyes and I must say, they were good at this. Lastly the teachers played a round of ‘Fire in the Mountain’. The game was packed with entertainment and it brought a smile to the faces around.Teachers broke out in a dance which released a fit of giggles from the younger students! The winners were rewarded with a prize each.

Now the event after that was absolutely remarkable. It was a dance performance from a little girl called from Grade 1. She was little, but had a bountiful amount of talent and style to her. Astounding!

The next event was the dance performance by the students of Grade V, VI and VII. Their grace and talent rewarded them with a huge round of applause from the students. They handled the props beautifully and their positioning added beauty to the act.

Even the PTA members gave a vote of thanks to the teachers. The members who substituted for teachers for the day too, were given a token of appreciation.

The event ended with some awards handed out to a Spelling Bee winner and with some inspiring words from the PTA members all of whom had lovely words to say about our teachers.

The event was full of smiles. The teachers enjoyed the games and their red carpet moment. The students loved seeing their teachers smile (and perhaps helping their class teachers in the guessing game!). The game, ‘Fire in the mountain’ released a bout of shrieks and laughter from everyone present. Festivity filled the air. Overall, it was a great event that entertained the age spectrum in the audience present. Goal of the day- to make people smile was achieved. Happiness can be obtained by making others happy. “The beauty of education is that you will always learn something,”.

At last Principal (Mr Sanjay Nandi) has given the vote of thanks where all the parents of Teacher’s were blessing to all for the wonderful thoughts & felicitation program.

Visit to National Defense Academy - 2016

On 4th September, 2016 students of Podar International School (CIE), Kalyan visited National Defence Academy, Pune. Students reached the academy at 10 am and they were accompanied by their Principal Mr. Sanjay Nandi and one of the army official.

It was an eagerly awaited visit to the National Defence Academy (NDA).It is situated at Khadakwasla and spread across a huge 3000 acres. We gathered at a pick up point at TRISHAKTI GATE at 10 am. As we entered the land of ‘Seva paramo dharmah’ which means ‘Service before Self’, our excitement knew no bounds. The National Defence Academy is the First tri-service academy (Navy, AirForce, Army) in the world and amongst the top rated ones. Here, the cadets of the 3 armed forces are trained before they resume their pre-commissioning training in their respective service academies.

First we visited to HORSE Stable. Then we proceeded to the AFTT (Air Force Training Team) area which aims to train basics of military aviation through ground and flying training. We had to get down from our bus to go inside a hangar where we saw many aircrafts like SUPER DIMONA. One of the aircrafts had a ground training instructor standing next to it, who was proudly and relentlessly explaining to the visitors, the specifications and use of the particular aircraft. It was a twin seater, single engine powered aircraft to give pre-basic stage flying experience to cadets aiming to become Air Force Pilots. After that, we hopped into our bus again, to visit the Habibullah Hall and ‘Sudan Block’. In the Habibullah Hall, we watched a documentary about NDA, profoundly explaining its importance and its ideals. For the 20-odd minutes we were awestruck. What we watched, not only enabled us to take a glance at life of a cadet through the graduation but also towards humans, stretching their own as well as fellow’s physical and psychological limits. At last we arrived at ‘Sudan Block’, the main administrative building of NDA where all academic classes take place. It is a brilliant piece of architecture inspired from the Rajputana style, and is situated right at the heart of the NDA campus.

It was already afternoon, and our tour inside the NDA was almost over. Within no time we travelled back to the city with lingering thoughts of how challenging it would be for a cadet to transform himself from a mere aspirant into a fighter, dedicated to devote his life for the nation’s cause. We believe that we are fortunate enough to experience the place which teaches that sacrifice for your motherland is your prime objective. We consider ourselves lucky because when we are carrying out our day to day business, progressing in our own path and sleeping peacefully at night, there is someone who is guarding our borders, watching our skies and waters, and sacrificing his life. Hats off to the fighters and a Proud Salute!
