14 Nov ISA Exhibition 2009
November 14, 2009: The Mount Carmel Central School celebrated the children’s day on 14th November with a difference. The teachers, parents and students joined together to put up a live exhibition to provide a unique educational experience to every child in a safe and supportive environment that promotes personal attitudes of self discipline, motivation and excellence in learning. The exhibits were on 10 international Projects namely Flowers, Animals, Houses, Dresses, Seasons, Medicinal Plants, Harvest Festivals, Tourism, Dances and Crops. This provided the students an opportunity to have global trends in education. They compared and contrasted the different cultures, food habits; environment, languages and dresses prevailed in different countries of the world. What was unique in this exhibition was that students themselves dressed up and performed the different items according to the cultures that prevail in Australia, Japan, Kenya, America, Gulf Countries, Egypt, South Africa, Brazil and many other countries. Viewing this exhibition would be a feast to the eyes and joy & satisfaction to the heart.
Mrs. Keerthi K a parent of one of our students said “The international projects introduced in the school have brought in us as well as in our children a thirst for knowledge. We along with our children have read books, collected information from internet, prepared models, charts and power point presentations. We have enjoyed this new method of learning. Our school has become a global village”.
The exhibition was inaugurated at 9.30 a.m. by Rev. Dr. (Sr.) Agatha Mary, Superior General of the Apostolic Carmel Congregation and Mrs. Janny Joosten from Holland whose presence enhanced our joy. She also inaugurated the gymnasium for children.
