International Day Of The Girl Child

RAMAKRISHNA SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL

M- BLOCK VIKASPURI, NEW DELHI -18

OCTOBER 11, 2020

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD

Dear Parents

Greetings

LITTLE GIRLS WITH DREAMS BECOME WOMEN WITH VISION, SO LET THEM DREAM AND LET THEIR VISION ENRICH OUR WORLD.

International Day of the Girl Child is a United Nations’ designated day, observed every year on October 11. This year the theme of International Day of the Girl Child is “My voice, our equal future”. The theme focuses on how girls globally are leading the way. 

‘The Day of the Girl Child’ is also significant as the ‘Generation Equality’ campaign has been launched. It is a “multi-year, multi-partner campaign and movement for bold action on gender equality”. Girls worldwide are demanding a life free from gender-based violence, access to health, skills, recognition and investment as leaders of social change. The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges, the girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfilment of their human rights.

In a pandemic year, a clear agenda and multi-pronged approach is essential to look after the needs and opportunities of girls. 

RKS believes that girls have the right to a safe, educated, and healthy life, not only during their formative years, but also as they mature into women. If effectively supported, girls have the potential to change the world – both as the empowered girls of today and as tomorrow’s workers, entrepreneurs, mentors, household heads, political leaders and mothers.

To mark the importance of the girls and women, RKS has organised certain activities. Students of different class-clusters should go through the following activities and participate whole-heartedly.

TOPIC: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD

Class     I – IV         : Prepare a card for any woman/girl of your house and make them feel special. 

Class    V – VIII       : On an A4 sized sheet, write a slogan on International Day of the Girl Child, depicting that girls are not inferior to boys in any sphere. The picture of a great girl/lady may also be pasted with the slogan.

Class   IX – XII        : Write a paragraph on the theme of International Day of the Girl Child casting light on how girls and women can be empowered.

World Habitat Day

RAMAKRISHNA SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL

M- BLOCK VIKASPURI, NEW DELHI -18

OCTOBER 5, 2020

WORLD HABITAT DAY

Dear Parents

Greetings

WE HAVE THE POWER AND RESPONSIBILITY TO SHAPE THE FUTURE OF OUR COMMUNITIES SO THAT EVERYONE HAS THE ABILITY TO OBTAIN ADEQUATE SHELTER

 The United Nations designated the first Monday of October of every year as World Habitat Day to reflect on the state of our towns and cities, and on the basic right of all to adequate shelter. The Day is also intended to remind the world that we all have the power and the responsibility to shape the future of our cities and towns.

Having an adequate home is, now more than ever, a matter of life and death. As COVID-19 continues to spread, people have been told to stay at home, but this simple measure is impossible for people who do not have adequate housing. This has reminded us that home is much more than just a roof. To make us feel safe and enable us to continue living, working and learning, a home needs to be secure, to allow us to access basic services and infrastructure for hygiene measures and to have enough room for physical distancing. Structural inequalities have been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic, showing how people from minorities, indigenous peoples and migrants are disproportionately affected by housing precarity, overcrowding and homelessness.

The theme of WORLD HABITAT DAY 2020 is: HOUSING FOR ALL- A BETTER URBAN FUTURE. Working on the theme and to make our students aware of those lacking such necessity, RKS has assigned certain activities to evoke pathos among the students for the needy and poor and to ensure them that they shouldn’t feel ignored by society. 

RKS has earmarked the following areas in which students of different class-clusters have been invited to contribute:

TOPIC: WORLD HABITAT DAY

Class    I – IV             :Make a card for any poor person/family whom you know and give him/her/them the card along with any small gift to show that you care for them. Click a picture of giving them the card and gift and upload the same.

Class  V – VIII          :Prepare a poster on HOUSING FOR ALL-A BETTER URBAN FUTURE and also write a slogan on the same. 

Class  IX – XII          :On an A4 sized sheet, write a paragraph on the state of slum dwellers of India and what measures should the government/NGOs/individuals take to improve their condition and provide adequate shelter to them. Word limit: 100-120 words.

International Day Of Non-Violence

RAMAKRISHNA SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL

M- BLOCK VIKASPURI, NEW DELHI -18

October 2, 2020

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF NON-VIOLENCE

Dear Parents

Greetings

NONVIOLENCE IS THE GREATEST FORCE AT THE DISPOSAL OF MANKIND. IT IS MIGHTIER THAN THE MIGHTIEST WEAPON OF DESTRUCTION DEVISED BY THE INGENUITY OF MAN.” 

                                                                                                                         -Mahatma Gandhi

The International Day of NonViolence is marked on 2 October, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement and pioneer of the philosophy and strategy of nonviolence. We pay homage to our heroes and great leaders on their birth anniversaries. More often than not, such events pass in a ritualistic manner. But at times, the nation must not only pay homage to its leaders, but also make the younger generation aware of their stellar contribution to the good of the country.

Mahatma Gandhi, the pioneer of India’s freedom struggle, and Lal Bahadur Shastri, the second Prime Minister of India, were born on October 2. They coined popular national slogans that resonated with masses. While Mahatma Gandhi coined the slogan “Do or Die” (Karo ya maro), Lal Bahadur Shastri’s “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan” (Hail the soldier, hail the farmer) became widely accepted.

These two India’s greatest leaders were instrumental in India’s freedom struggle. Both Mahatma Gandhi, and Lal Bahadur Shastri’s lives are exemplary and a source of motivation for students. Both these men are known to exhibit clarity and calmness even in situations that created panic. Their clarity of thoughts and resolve to act is something, students can learn from. 

RKS affirms to pay tribute to these two national heroes by celebrating the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic. The students are supposed to perform the following activities: 

TOPIC: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF NON-VIOLENCE

 The activities are assigned as follows:

Classes I – IV        : Recite a poem on Non-Violence in Hindi or English, make a video of it and upload it.

Classes V – VIII       : Prepare a portrait of either Mahatma Gandhi or Lal Bahadur Shastri along with a slogan given by them.

Classes IX–XII         : Write a paragraph in 100-120 words, depicting the role played by Mahatma Gandhi in India’s freedom struggle or by Lal Bahadur Shastri as the Prime Minister of India.

BECAUSE WE ALL SHARE THIS PLANET EARTH, WE HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE IN HARMONY AND PEACE WITH EACH OTHER AND WITH NATURE, THIS IS NOT JUST A DREAM BUT A NECESSITY.

-Dalai Lama

As we struggle to defeat COVID-19, people’s voice is more important than ever. In these difficult times of physical distancing, this International Day of Peace will be dedicated to fostering dialogue and collecting ideas. The world will be invited to unite and share thoughts on how to weather this storm, heal our planet and change it for the better. Even though we may not be able to stand next to each other, we can still dream together.

The 2020 theme for the International Day of Peace is “Shaping Peace Together.” RKS has prepared to celebrate the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic by organising certain activities:Let’s stand together against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination or hatred so that we can shape peace together. 

 TOPIC: INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

 The activities are assigned as follows:

Classes    I – IV          :Make a collage of all the symbols of peace around the world.

Classes   V – VIII      :Prepare a poster on promotion of peace and harmony among all the nations. Also include a slogan in your poster.

SEPTEMBER 16, 2020

WORLD OZONE DAY 

Dear Parents

Greetings

EARTH WITHOUT OZONE IS LIKE A HOUSE WITHOUT A ROOFTOP, SO SAVE OZONE DON’T BE MEAN, KEEP CLEAN AND MAKE YOUR WORLD GREEN

Life on Earth would not be possible without sunlight. But the energy emanating from the sun would be too much for life on Earth to thrive, were it not for the ozone layer. This stratospheric layer shields Earth from most of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation.

The Ozone layer or also known as the Ozone shield, a delicate layer of gas, in the Earth’s stratosphere absorbs most of the Sun’s ultraviolet rays. These rays can cause numerous skin diseases.

World Ozone Day is observed on September 16, every year. It is celebrated to spread awareness among people about the depletion of the Ozone Layer and search for possible solutions to preserve it. 

“Ozone for life” is the slogan for World Ozone Day 2020.

To promote the slogan, “Ozone for life”, RKS wants to remind everyone that ozone is crucial for our life on Earth and we must continue to protect the ozone layer for our future generations also. It has therefore arranged for some activities for the students :

TOPIC : OZONE FOR LIFE

The activities are assigned as follows:

Classes   I   – IV         :Make a collage of Ozone Layer.

Classes  V  – VIII       :Make an illustrative poster on Ozone For Life. 

Classes  IX – XII        :Write in about 100-120 words about how we can save ozone from depletion.

SEPTEMBER 14, 2020

HINDI DIWAS

Dear Parents

Greetings

हिंदीभाषानहींभावोंकीअभिव्यक्तिहै

यहमातृभूमिपरमरमिटनेकीभक्तिहै

Hindi Diwas, celebrated on the 14th of September each year, is a way to cherish the Indian culture and honour the Hindi language. On this day in the year 1949, Hindi was adopted as the country’s official language by the Constituent Assembly of India. 

Hindi is one of the two official languages of the Union government — the other being English. It is one of the 22 scheduled languages of the Republic of India. It is said that owing to the efforts of Beohar Rajendra Simha, along with Hazari Prasad Dwivedi, Kaka Kalelkar, Maithili Sharan Gupt and Seth Govind Das, Hindi was recognised as one of the two official languages. In fact, it happened on Beohar Rajendra Simha’s 50th birthday, who happened to have illustrated the original final manuscript of the Constitution of India.

Hindi language is one of the oldest languages that obtains much of its academic terminology from the Sanskrit language written in the Devanagari script.

Hindi Diwaspromotes and propagates Hindi as the official language which is also the fourth most spoken language in the world.

To showcase the importance of the day and the language, RKS has organised certain activities: 

TOPIC : HINDI DIWAS

The activities are assigned as follows:

Classes    I  – IV         : Poem Narration on the importance of Hindi Language as our mother tongue.

Classes   V – VIII      : Poster of any luminary of Hindi Literature. 

Classes  IX – XII       : Write in about 60 words some interesting key facts of Hindi language.
