Resource person – Mr. Kulvinder Sharma and Mr. Gurvesh Kumar
A session on road safety was conducted for the students of Class IX. Two traffic police officers conducted a session for the students on road safety. It was an interactive session. The resource people asked questions to check on the awareness of the students on road safety measures. First, they told the students about the lanes that we see on the road, why they are different from each other, and what kinds of vehicles are meant for different lanes. They also told us how to wear a helmet because if the helmets are not worn properly, it can also cause death. They informed us about the consequences of minors driving vehicles on the road and also about the three courts in which cases of accidents caused by different kinds of vehicles are filed. Information on different kinds of penalties that can be levied in case people drive without any license was also shared with the students.
The resource persons also told the students about the age group the children that is considered eligible where they can sit on the front seat of a two-wheeler. At the end of the session, a piece of important information on how to identify the right quality of helmet and how to differentiate between the real and duplicate. A duplicate brand of a helmet can put one’s life at risk. A helmet with an ISI mark and its code can be identified as authentic and safe for the rider and the pillion rider. Finally, a few short videos that can spread awareness were shown to the students.
This session was very informative and encouraged many students to stay safe and keep others safe.
Disaster management in schools is crucial for preparing students to respond effectively to natural and man-made disasters. It equips them with life-saving skills and knowledge.
In our school, class IX B, under NSS conducted discussions on various disasters, including earthquakes and fires. Students learned dos and don’ts during emergencies. Students of the class prepared skits to simulate disaster scenarios, teaching other classes how to react during and after a disaster.
Students were educated about the importance of staying calm, finding safe locations, and assisting others. They learned not to panic, avoid elevators during earthquakes and follow evacuation protocols.
Mock drills and skits were conducted to illustrate proper responses to fires and earthquakes, enabling students to grasp essential safety measures in emergency situations.
We emphasize the significance of post-disaster rescue and first aid training. Students are trained to provide basic medical assistance and support to victims, until professional help arrives.
Disaster management in schools is vital to ensure the safety and well-being of students and the entire school community if any disaster occurs suddenly in the school.
An innovative project for the National Service Scheme (NSS) that could bring about a significant positive impact for hearing-impaired children.
The project idea centres on creating a recreational video that incorporates hand signs along with synchronized audio and visuals. The primary aim of this project is to assist hearing-impaired children in building creativity, effectively through sign language. We have attached a sample video to provide you with a few of the videos made by the students of class IX C.
The project involves dividing our class into several groups, each responsible for creating a video that focuses on various stories, folk tales and educational videos. By presenting these concepts visually and through hand signs, we aim to bridge the communication gap that often exists for hearing-impaired children.
Here are some key points to highlight about our project:
1. Inclusivity – This project emphasizes inclusivity and aims to provide equal learning opportunities to all children, irrespective of their abilities. It aligns perfectly with the ethos of our school to nurture well-rounded individuals.
2. Innovation – The integration of audio, visuals, and hand signs in the instructional video makes this project truly unique. It leverages technology and creative communication methods to make learning more engaging and effective.
3. Community Impact – The project’s impact extends beyond the classroom. It has the potential to positively affect the lives of not only the hearing-impaired children but also their families, teachers, and the larger community which fosters thinking and creativity.
This project is a unique opportunity to make a substantial contribution to society while learning valuable lessons about empathy, teamwork, and the power of education.

The students engaged in a thought-provoking discussion on the topic “What is truth, and does truth matter anymore?” The conversation centered around their experiences, observations, and understanding of how fake news spreads through social media platforms.
Many students shared their personal encounters with fake news on social media. They discussed instances where misleading information was presented as fact, and they pointed out the challenges of distinguishing between genuine news and misinformation. Several students admitted that they had initially believed fake news stories before discovering the truth through fact-checking.
When asked how they identified fake news, the students highlighted the importance of critical thinking and cross-referencing information from multiple reliable sources. They emphasized the role of fact-checking websites and urged their peers to question the credibility of sources before accepting information as true.
The impact of fake news on individuals and society was a key point of discussion. Students shared how fake news could influence public opinion, create confusion, and even incite fear and panic. They mentioned instances where false information had led to unwarranted social unrest and misinformation-driven decisions.
The participants recognized that the impact of fake news extends beyond their immediate communities. They acknowledged that false information can quickly spread across the globe, affecting people’s perceptions and behaviours on a large scale. They expressed concern about the erosion of trust in media and institutions due to the prevalence of misinformation.
The role of social media platforms in the spread of fake news was thoroughly debated. While acknowledging the benefits of social media in connecting people and sharing information, students also highlighted the speed at which misinformation can spread on these platforms. They discussed the need for social media companies to implement stricter content verification and moderation measures.
The Generation Global video conference on Fake News and Social Media provided a platform for students to engage in a meaningful dialogue about the challenges posed by fake news in the digital age. The participants demonstrated a deep understanding of the importance of critical thinking, fact-checking, and responsible media consumption. They recognized the need for collective efforts to combat fake news and promote a more informed and truthful online environment.
The conference served as a reminder of the critical role that the younger generation plays in shaping the narrative around fake news and social media. As the students continue to navigate the digital landscape, they are equipped with insights that will enable them to approach information with scepticism, discernment, and a commitment to upholding the truth.
A highly enlightening workshop was organized by the Generation Global team to emphasize the significance of dialogue in cultivating global citizenship. The session aimed to familiarize students with the power of dialogue as a tool for driving positive change and fostering understanding across diverse cultures and perspectives.

Through thought-provoking anecdotes and real-life examples, Ms. Chauhan illustrated how dialogue has the power to dissolve prejudices, challenge stereotypes, and pave the way for a more inclusive and equitable society.
Students of Class IXD participated in a thought-provoking video conference organized by Generation Global on 17 August 2023 with students from other school across India. The conference revolved around the exploration of inequality and equality, with a focus on various topics such as racism, sexism, land rights, freedom of belief, and slavery. Students engaged in discussions that prompted them to reflect on their own experiences of inequality and equality, the factors contributing to inequality in their community, and the impact of factors like language, access to technology, age, and location on the video conference experience.
During the conference, students were encouraged to share their own encounters with inequality or instances of witnessing equality. Many students recounted stories that shed light on the profound impact of systemic racism and sexism. Some shared personal experiences of being treated unfairly based on their gender, race, or cultural background. These stories highlighted the importance of addressing and dismantling discriminatory practices within society.
Participants engaged in a deep exploration of the factors contributing to inequality in their community. They identified socioeconomic disparities, unequal access to education and healthcare, and lack of opportunities as significant contributors. Discrimination based on gender, race, and economic status emerged as prevailing issues. Students also acknowledged how historical legacies, such as colonialism and slavery, continue to shape present-day inequalities.
The discussion extended to the impact of various factors on the video conference experience. Language emerged as a barrier for some students who were participating in their second or third language, making it challenging to fully engage in the dialogue. Limited access to technology created disparities in participation, as some students faced difficulties joining the conference due to technological constraints. Additionally, age and location played a role, with students from remote areas facing connectivity issues that hindered their active involvement.
The students also shared their proactive measures to support equality within their community. Initiatives such as awareness campaigns, workshops, and community dialogues were mentioned. Students expressed their commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion, challenging stereotypes, and standing up against discriminatory behaviours. Some students highlighted the importance of education in fostering empathy and understanding, aiming to break the cycle of inequality.
In conclusion, the video conference organized by Generation Global provided an invaluable platform for the participants to delve into the complexities of inequality and equality. Through discussions on personal experiences, factors contributing to inequality, and the impact of various factors on engagement, students gained a deeper understanding of these issues. The conference served as a catalyst for their commitment to taking meaningful actions to foster equality within their community.

Our NSS activity named as, ‘Project Re’, showcased a brilliant transformation of old trophies into functional and aesthetic items. We creatively repurposed these trophies into mirrors, lamps, pen stands, and planters, giving them a new life. Our team, with the help of the school’s support staff, took great care to disassemble the trophies and salvage their components, which were ingeniously integrated into the new designs.
During the Parent-Teacher Meeting (PTM), we set up a stall to exhibit our creations. The response was overwhelming, with many appreciating the sustainable approach to décor. The reuse of trophies involved careful cleaning, painting, and reassembly, showcasing our commitment to environmental responsibility. ‘Project Re’ demonstrated our resourcefulness and raised awareness about upcycling and reducing waste.
