KASHISH AND MANROOPS ‘BUSY BEE’ UPDATES YOU ALL WITH THE SCHOOL NEWS OF APRIL & MAY 2014
The School Session 2014-15 started on a traditional note with the lighting of the School Lamp on ‘Orientation Day’ on April 6, 2014. The ‘new’ parents were apprised of the philosophy and methodology followed by ‘The Millennium School.
The highlight of the term was a visit from the Olympian Abhinav Bindra who had a very good inter active session with the students. The children related to him beautifully because of his â€˜down-to-earthâ€™, practical approach to life. He made it seem that anyone, with proper hard work and focus could become an Olympic Medal winner! We loved meeting him.
SCHOOL RALLY Prior to April 30, the senior students took out a rally in Mohali, emphasising to the general public on the importance of voting. Colourful posters accompanied this interesting event, which also attracted the media.
WORLD BOOK DAY The Library came up with a unique idea to mark â€˜World Book Dayâ€™. Classes IV to X were asked to do up their class doors like a book cover. It was an intersection competition and the students did a fantastic job. The following sections emerged as winners: IV A

CLASS II SOFT BOARD DECORATION CONTEST

INTER HOUSE INTELLECTUAL MARATHON The ‘Intellectual Marathon’ is a much looked forward for competition. With a view to exposing students to intellectual and physical abilities on one platform, the school organizes an ‘Inter-House Intellectual Marathon’ for students of classes II to IX. The idea of such a marathon is to reiterate the point that all students may not be good at everything but all students are good at something. In such a marathon, each House sends a student each to represent Sports, English language, Hindi, Punjabi, French, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Computers, and General Awareness. Each student contributes points towards the final score. The students have great fun while they got an opportunity to present their intellectual abilities too. This marathon is based on the premise that multiple -intelligence is the base of education today. It is important to maintain the self-esteem of every child, which is wonderfully exhibited in such an event. JAL HOUSE EMERGED AS THE OVER-ALL WINNERS.
INTER HOUSE DECLAMATION CONTEST The Inter House Declamation Contest in English had PRITHVI HOUSE get the first over-all position. Classes VIII to X had extempore speeches, while classes II to VII had topics given to them in advance.
