'I never feel lonely if I've got a book- they are like old friends'... Emilia Fox

In order to make books our best friends we need to read and in our pursuit to develop this art in our students, SMGS organises a Book Fair every year wherein a vast collection of books is exhibited and the students can choose one of their interest.

The annual fair was organised in the school from 1 to 6 February 2016.
Book Week - (6 to 9 September 2015)
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers"
- Charles William Elliot.


These beautiful lines clearly depict the value of books in enlightening individual knowledge and in bringing our saturated life to a turning point. Keeping this in mind, an enthralling Book Week was organized by our school for classes I-X from 6 to 9 September 2015. The event provided all the students a wonderful podium to not only speak out their minds and portray their hidden talents but also aided in their overall personality development and enhancement of self confidence. This literary week equipped the students with the necessary verbal, intellectual and practical skills to realize their dreams. The multiferous activities held under the umbrella of Book Week included Family Album Making, Sing a Song and Relate a Memory, Most Wanted, Character Enactment, Limerick Writing, The Biography of an Object, Power Point Presentstions on Amazing Literary Facts followed by a quiz, a Walkthrough, JAM session and Extempore on News This Week. A Book Fair was also standardised wherein students got a chance to scrutinize some good books and inculcate a healthy reading habit. Students of class XI were active participants in the Book Week as they were the creators and Quiz masters of the ppt's and quiz on Amazing Literary Facts. They let loose their creativity and imagination for the same while class XII procured an opportunity to judge the events and put forth their views on the various performances along with their teachers. The Book Week was a wonderful learning experience for both the students as well as the teachers.

To sit alone in the lamplight with a book spread out before you, and hold

intimate converse with men of unseen generations – such is a pleasure

beyond compare.”

There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favourite book-Marcel Proust”. In today’s world, we have so many books but unfortunately we have so little time. Books aren’t made of pages and words, they are made of hopes, dreams and possibilities. To let our children have a feel of this fanciful world of books, St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School organized a Book Week for its pre-primary, primary and senior classes from 4 August to 8 August 2014 with the aim of inculcating the habit of reading in children.

All the classes had different activities for their students. The children of seedling gave a special visit to the school library where the teachers presented a live story narration for them. They enjoyed as it was their first encounter with the characters of various books. A Rhyme Dramatization Competition was organized for the students of class sapling and they presented many amazing rhymes with full enthusiasm.

The grandparents are the back bone of any family and their stories are the most memorable ones. Keeping this tradition alive, one grandparent from each section of Class I was invited to narrate a story for the kids. Later on, the students used their imagination to make beautiful drawings based on the story. The girls of class II were highly energetic as they made scrap files about themselves. They wrote each and everything about their interests, liking and disliking, hobbies and various other aspects about their personality. Later on, people from the Scholastic visited their classes for the story narration session. It was a wonderful experience for them. Class III was not left behind as the students brought a prop and they spoke a few sentences about their favourite story character.

Class IV girls were in high spirits as they had the Library Mascot Making Activity which they performed very well. They gave special names to their mascots. Class V students penned down a story on their own and their imagination had no limits. The budding writers also drafted the book covers for their stories giving full swing to an artist in themselves.

The students of Class VI dressed up to enact their favourite characters. They were seen enacting as Lady Macbeth from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Swami from RK Narayan’s Malgudi Days, Portio from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, Arthur Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes and many others.

The students of Class VII participated in a remarkable interactive activity “Sell a Book”. The students divided in groups had to prepare the book cover, slogans and pamphlets for the book they wanted to advertise and sell to VIII standard girls.

The students of Class VIII were shown a power-point presentation on the writers who have penned mystery novels with detectives as lead. Later they were asked to complete a detective story. The students of Classes IX-X learnt to make a cartoon strip. Also, Class IX girls had situational extempore. The students of Class X were shown power-point presentation on Ruskin Bond and then they were tested for their awareness about the author. The students of Class XI did Blog Writing.

By the end of an exciting week packed with activity, the students learnt that reading books not only empowers each of us but also tickles our thinking. “Books….are like lobster shells, we surround ourselves with them, then we grow out of them and leave them behind as evidence of our earlier stages of development.”
