An Educational trip to Gandhi Smriti, Delhi.

On 26th October 2016 students of class 3rd to 5th of Hamdard Public School went for an educational trip to Gandhi Smriti . The trip was sponsored by NIE Times of India.

Gandhi Smriti, is the sacred place where Mahatma Gandhi’s epic Life ended on 30 January 1948. Mahatma Gandhi had lived in this house from 9 September 1947 to 30 January 1948. Thus, the hallowed house treasures, many memories of the last 144 days of his life.

The children were very curious to know about the life and belongings of Gandhi Ji like his spectacles, watch, walking stick, desk etc.  They were fascinated to see the replicas of things which Gandhi Ji used in real life and many other things on display such as; photographs, sculptures, paintings, frescos, inscriptions on rocks and  relics depicting important events which are milestones in India’s journey towards Independence. There were original videos of important happenings like the Dandi March, Non Cooperation movement etc.

The trip ended by visiting the martyrdom spot where Gandhi Ji was shot dead. The whole trip was informative and enjoyed by the small children.

Little Hands at Artistic Work !

If art is an expression of life, the exhibition of art and craft in the Primary Wing gave plenty of curious insights into the minds and lives of students . They played with colours, smeared the corridors with a spectrum of colours and gave vent to their imagination. The young artists of the Primary Wing poured out their creativity and talent at the exhibition held at the school on Saturday, 22nd October’16.

Our young talent was given a platform to create their own piece of artwork giving them a sense of achievement and also giving them the opportunity of appreciating other’s artwork.

Deeply immersed in their own creative world, the little ones animatedly described their works to the visitors. The students’ hard work seemed to have paid off rather well as everybody was visibly impressed by it. The beautiful warli paintings, creating best out of waste, pot making, tile painting and craft work left the spectators mesmerized.
