The village school students from 5th and 6th graders around 80 have been visiting the campus of Sreenidhi International School for extracurricular activities like language instructions, Sports & games and art & craft session for 3-Saturdays every month. This program usually starts from the 2nd week of August of that academic year after the Sreenidhi students come back to school after summer vacation.

The village school students are engaged in Language Instructions, games and art activities. The volunteers from Sreenidhi International School engage the students in these activities with a plan of schedule guided by their teachers.

This academic year apart from Dhiya painting program in the month of October the village school students had the opportunity for art & craft sessions on the 29th February and 7th March, 2020 on the campus with volunteers of SIS who were helping and guiding them. It was all about colouring the beautiful designs on papers given to children. It was wonderful to see them engaged in their work with more focus. They made beautiful and colourful pictures of animals, scenery, nature and flowers. Students with more skills in art were engaged in creative drawing and painting, taking a theme like Nature, village houses, green fields and roads and beaches.

The art work of these village school 5th & 6th graders including their craft works / work on Origami done during the academic year will be exhibited in the Art Exhibition of SIS to be held on the 25th, April, 2020.

Overall, all the students thoroughly enjoyed the session and were happy to carry the piece with them that they have done.  On completion of their session they dispersed with snacks and drinks. They were provided with transport to attend these activities on Saturday at the campus of Sreenidhi.

Encouraging the reading skills in children – Reading & Books distribution Program held at the Aziznagar Primary School on 26 February, 2020

The students from the Primary Section of grade 4 & 5 of Sreenidhi International School around 17 with their teachers visited the primary school in Aziznagar to conduct a reading program with the village school children from grade 5 of 40 students on the 26th February, 2020.

 They came with books and manipulative ( learning aids, activity kits, building blocks and flash cards) that help immensely the village school children enjoy learning with ease. It has been a wonderful activity – a reading program and donation of books and manipulative to help the children learn effectively and meaningfully. It was a thoroughly enjoyable moment for the village school children interacting with SIS-Students, a truly learning experience to both of them.

 The best part of it was the kind gesture of the PYP-5th graders (present) in helping the village school with a  donation of wonderful, lovely reading material ( story books and picture books for learning about animals, flowers, vegetables etc) activity kits like building blocks and puzzles, flash cards matching the word, forming a sentence etc) 

 It is truly a big contribution. On behalf of KMR Foundation we conveyed our heartfelt thanks to the SIS-PYP dept and special thanks to Ms. Laurice & Ms. Kahkashan                  ( grade 4 &5 home-room teachers and the students for conducting this program in the village school for the children.

From the PYP 4 Team

 Our hearts are still full from giving and from witnessing the interaction of the children! We haven’t asked our children about how they felt with the whole experience, but I think you would agree that there was a certain kind of satisfaction and joy that reverberated in the bus as we were going back to school.  

 What is most memorable to me is the relationship(s) that have been started because of the reading activity. I am convinced that we should nurture these relationships through consistent interaction with our children. I do hope that this is only the beginning.

 It was such a pleasure spending time with you, the teachers we met and the children. We are so looking forward to working with you in nurturing the new relationships that the children have formed.

FIESTA-2020 – A fund raiser was held on the 15th February, 2020 at the SIS-Campus.

Fiesta 2020 – “The Show must go On!! FIESTA – 2020 – International Film Festival”.

 The Fiesta was scheduled on 15th February 2020 . The event started on a high note with usual FUN & FROLIC. A lot of fun loving crowd and children from outside were present on the day. It is an annual event  aimed at collection of funds to be spent for the KMRF—adopted  village schools  supporting and enhancing the quality of education as well in the area of health & hygiene of the village community.

 As last year this year too, the KMRF-adopted Aziznagar village Govt. Primary School students were waiting for their time slot for the dance performance a “flash mob”.  The selected 35 students were trained by the SIS-CAS-volunteers at the campus while they came for regular activities on Saturdays.  It was amazing to see the enthusiasm and energy with which they participated and danced. They received a loud applause and cheering from the audience, visitors and parents for their synchronized movements.

They could catch the steps and dance without much practice and that they learnt in a short time. The volunteer –students who trained them led the children in groups and made them perform. They also danced along with them. They exhibited their talents           in a well synchronized way and performed with precision. They were greatly cheered by the audience and asked for repeat performances.

The objective of the Fiesta-19 was to raise funds for schools other than Aziznagar and help them with basic essential facilities like- furniture, fans & lights, minor requirements and repairs for the toilets of the schools.  Likewise one school that was surveyed by the SIS-Students is the primary school in Yenkapalli also to help with the donation of students’ and teachers’ furniture in addition to attend the  complete construction work of  toilet for students –boys and girls separately. It was also decided to consider helping the another primary school in the nearby village in Jeevanguda with the repair works of the toiletand supply of furniture depending on the funds collected and available.

Over all it was an eventful and indeed a successful fundraiser and we wish to keep working with SIS and get help from them to help us support the Aziznagar and surrounding village schools with infra structure facilities and basic essentials through such events and collaborations in future.
