On a wintry December day, specifically the 23rd of December, the little ones of class four exhibited their dramatic best by putting forth a play depicting the birth of Christ. A moment of great exaltation, the play unfolded in the backdrop of the carol ‘Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ’. Little children dressed as Joseph and Mary sat near a hay stack where the lord was born. Then, came the three wisemen, the three kings of the orient, who came to see baby Jesus. The kings were bearing gifts and they travelled over moors and mountains to reach Bethlehem where, the lord was born. Children made a wonderful display of following the star to reach Bethlehem. To add to the attraction and enhance the effect of the birth of Christ, a dance of angels “Away in a manger” was put forth. The dance was mesmerizing. Little faces dressed as angels looked heavenly. To round off the celebration came Santa Claus, jingling his bells, wherein, little girls dressed as Santa were dancing on the tune of carol ‘Santa Claus is coming to town’. The enthusiasm of the children was unparalleled as they had their parents to witness their performance and the show was a great success. The play was concluded with Christmas wishes to all. It brought forth the true potential of the kids and a cause for celebration to all.

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.” The joy of reading books can't be described in words. It's something that we understand only by real experience. It is as necessary for our body as food is for our body. It is the reading which gives us food for thought when we have no special work to do. It is thus the most wholesome hobby and should be acquired as early in life as possible.

The students enthusiastically read the books and enjoyed the activity. The students were encouraged to make reading as a habit.

Our tiny tots decorated flutes with the help of glaze paper, pastel sheets, and ribbon. Children pasted glaze paper circles and pastel sheet peacock feather on the flute. To make it more bright, glitters were added to it. It was a memorable day for them as they took colourful flute home.

Hindi is our National language.
Owing to the increasing western influence, we have all begun to neglect our roots. The situation has become so precarious that a need to dedicate a special day (14 September) to our mother tongue, Hindi, has arisen. Our school strongly believes in giving due respect and recognition to our own language and culture. To contribute more in this direction, we did our bit by organizing a Hindi week. This initiative involved a variety of morale-boosting and refreshing activities to encourage the students think beyond curricular limits. The celebrations took place from 28th September to 1st October and saw zestful participation from classes VI-X. The plethora of activities which took place included the 'Samvad Vachan Pratiyogita' for class VI to promote concise yet meaningful speaking and 'Samachar Vachan' which was held for VII standard with the purpose of imparting to them an intellectual insight. Furthermore, for inculcating spontaneity and wit, an extempore or 'Ashubhashan' was conducted for the students of class VIII. The girls of IX standard were presented with the task of preparing humorous comic strips in their activity of 'Sachitra Vyangyatmak Patika'. Last but not the least, a script writing competition i.e. Natya Lekhan Pratiyogita was planned for the students of X grade. The projects were designed efficiently by our teachers to be engaging as well as thought-provoking. Overall, the week-long extravaganza was a great learning experience and contributed significantly in enhancing our affinity for Hindi.

Our roots are what keep us grounded. Traditional values that are bestowed upon us by our culture are embedded in them. Culture has an immensely significant role to play in molding our demeanor, in building the strength of our character. Such a construct which remains an indispensable part of our society is entitled to a celebration in its name. What better way to celebrate Indian Sanskriti than holding an extravaganza for its linguistic constituent - Sanskrit ?

Keeping this in mind, our school organized a Sanskrit week for classes VI - X which spanned over 28.09.2015 to 30.09.2015. A myriad of activities were performed by the students over these the week. Class VI students were involved in Shabdanirmanam, while class VII had to enact a story in Sanskrit. For class VIII, a G.K. Quiz on Sanskrit epics and Grammar was conducted. The students of class IX had to compose a poem in Sanskrit on the topics given by the teachers. Class X was engaged in the preparation of a newspaper in the same.

The Prize Distribution Ceremony was held on 30.09.15. We were obliged by the esteemed presence of the honorable Chief Guest - Prof. Dr. Ichha Ram Dwivedi, a Sanskrit poet laureate. Prof. Dwivedi has published 62 books and submitted 75 research papers along with over 300 articles. His mere presence in the auditorium illuminated the entirety of the hall. Being a man of his accomplishments, he truly gratified us by coming to the ceremony. He even enlightened all those who were present with knowledge about the language. He lucidly explained to them its essence. He was very appreciative of the school's initiative to brush off the layers of dust from the beauty of our ancestral language.

The ceremony came to an end with the Chief Guest, along with our Principal and Vice Principal giving away the prizes to the winners from their respective classes.

'An investment in education pays the best interest as its great aim is not knowledge, it is action.'

In our endeavour to empower minds, we at St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School, organised a GANIT week. The fiesta was held to commemorate the 127th birth anniversary of the legendary mathematician, Mr. Srinivasan Ramanujan. The basic idea behind it was to kindle a passion for the seemingly dull and intimidating subject; to bring out the wondrous nature and the hidden magic in Mathematics.

To encourage the concept of psycho-motor learning (learning by doing), a slew of activities was conducted which saw enthusiastic participation from classes VI-XI. It was time for the students of class 6 to pull up their socks and put on their thinking caps as they were intrigued to answer diverse questions in a Quiz. The creative best of class VII was exhibited as they jotted down their thoughts in an Essay Writing Competition on ‘Marvels of Mathematics’. The fun quotient of Maths was further explored in the special screening of a documentary ‘The Genius of Srinivasa Ramanujan’ by Vigyan Prasar, held for the cognitive brains of 8th standard. Students of grade 9 were encouraged to speak up their minds in an interaction with their teachers regarding the innovations in the field of maths.

The dilettantes of class X gave us a glimpse of their artistic skills, amalgamating the concept of symmetry with art to create beautiful posters with origami work. Studies didn't deter class XI from indulging in the celebration. They enacted the roles of eminent mathematicians and gave expositions of the work done by those mathematicians. So it can aptly be said,"Learning gives creativity, creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides prowess which in turn makes one great."

World Nature Conservation Day is observed every year on 28th July. Nature provides us with various indispensable services, but excessive and unsustainable use of the natural resources is causing degradation of nature. World Nature Conservation Day is observed to encourage people the wise management of these resources.

So as to sensitize the little ones, the senior school student incharges of 'Kesholoy' organized a marvellous activity for students of Classes III to V at St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School. The little ones made paper bags of waste printed sheets under the guidance of these student incharges. Later these paper bags were distributed by the student incharges, accompanied by their Eco Club Teachers, to the nearby shopkeepers and vegetable sellers, so as to discourage them from using plastic bags. The increasing use of plastic is having an adverse effect on nature and this simple deed not only helped in creating awareness among our students but also among the general public.

The guru was patience, optimism and love personified. He was the one who did not dismiss every morning thinking that it is the same as yesterday but saw everyday as if he was seeing it for the first time like a new born child. Gurudev, as fondly remembered by one and all, believed that love is the only reality and not merely a sentiment. He was a versatile poet, philosopher, educationist, essayist, play wright and a spiritual guru. It is said that his music reached even the drivers of bullock carts and those in the humbler walks of life.

The students of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School, Meera Bagh, paid a floral tribute to this knight of harmony on his birth anniversary and also celebrated the 100 years of his being conferred as a noble laureate, with reverence and fervour. He won the Nobel Prize for his soulful anthology ‘Geetanjali’.

The zestful students presented six dances on the songs penned down by Tagore like ‘Aaj Dhanu Khete’, ‘Hare re re re’, ‘Mon Mor Meghu sangi’, ‘Ora Okaroney Chonchol’ on 7 May 2013.

These dances cast an enigmatic spell on the spectators. Rendition of poems such as ‘When the Mind is Without Fear’, ‘Sleep Stealer’, ‘Cloud and waves’ and ‘Hard Times’ stole the heart and spirit of one and all. 9 May 2013 was marked by the charismatic presentation of the play ‘Chandalika’ that was performed by the students of class XI.

The power point presentation on Tagore was also shown to mark the day. Truly his mortal remains perished but left behind a heritage of verses and music, ideas and ideals to inspire all. This was Tagore, when comes another!

SMS Girls School - Independence Day Celebrations 2011 : Click to EnlargeThe 64th Independence Day was celebrated with great fervour on 12 August 2011 at St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec .School. The students of class VII hosted the whole program.

The parents of class VII were thrilled to hear the wonderful patriotic song and be the part of silent National Anthem. The play staged showed our great leaders in the heaven feeling remorseful to see their country infested with corruption. Eventually the play gave a very wise message to the audience, making them ponder over how the citizens themselves are somehow responsible for this evil.

The program proved that Independence Day is more about understanding the freedom struggle and political unrest that the country went through than just feeling a sense of freedom.

The chairperson of the school, Ms. Anjali Aggarwal, gave vote of thanks. She said that the program was very inspiring and motivated the students for having a sense of pride for being born in the free country.

The program ended with a patriotic feeling and everyone taking a pledge to bring honour to their country.
