During the session, emphasis was laid on stress management and how students can cope up with the examination stress. School counsellor Ramneek Kaur spoke on the importance to exercise regularly, to study more effectively and to manage time wisely. She further stressed that a healthy diet and a good sleep play a vital role as stress relievers. Several valuable tips to release exam stress were also explained. The webinar concluded with an interactive session where students enthusiastically put forth their queries which were very well tackled and answered by the counsellor. The school also held an online competition on clay moulding for classes I and II. Students made colourful and artistic models of aquarium, finger-puppets and unicorn.

EuroSchool implements NEP in revised school curriculum 

EuroSchool, India's leading K12 school brand, has revised its school curriculum under the New Education Policy (NEP). The new curriculum for classes I to V focuses on ethical, rational and creative thinking in learners. This improvised curriculum which blends with NEP will be rolled out from the academic year 2021-22. It is based on the 7E instruction design principle i.e engage, explain, elaborate, explore, evaluate, extend and experience.

The content framework includes learning skills - critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication. The assessment of core concepts, higher-order skills and their applications in real-life situations through case studies and discussions are the highlights of this curriculum. Self-assessment and peer assessment will enable students to do regular SWOT analysis and work on their weaknesses and threats. EuroSchool has made these changes not just to the physical textbooks but also to their digital learning ecosystem - Argus.

The school's NSS volunteers geared up for an informative session on the management of e-Waste and single-use plastic waste. The session took place on the school campus with Rohit Kumar, the President of Swarmani Youth Welfare Association, based at Village Khuda Ali Sher, visiting the school to impart training to the eager volunteers regarding the best management techniques of disposing of e-Waste and plastic waste. While interacting with the volunteers, he informed them that the accumulation of most of the waste is caused due to our lackadaisical waste management. Thus, we must remember that segregation begins from our house by throwing the waste in the right bins.
