PREFACE

“The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the
realist adjusts the sails.”
Sometime we get stuck and think that this is the end but some changes are blessing in
disguise. When this pandemic started to intrude in our lives we were baffled but at the

KC INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLsame time we learnt that this is the new normal and accepted this change with open

arms.
All we have to fear is fear itself. We at KCIS tried and tested our limitations and
realized that imagination has no limitations.
E-Newsletter in this pandemic has become a medium to showcase how our children
are now the part of ‘Survival of the fittest’ and we thought of embarking on a new
journey to explore more and more.
We request you to enjoy the journey we have covered in the last four months that
would force you to acknowledge the efforts of the Management, teachers and
students as we are shouldered with the responsibility of nurturing and bringing up the
young seedlings.
‘Reverberation:Volume-2’is an amalgam of plethora of activities which we carried out
to give platform to students for a holistic development.
We wish you a pleasant viewing experience!!!!!!

Editor -in-Chief’s Message Ms. Arti Sharma
Dean Academics
It gives me immense pleasure in bringing out the second quarterly
edition of our E-newsletter ‘Reverberation: Volume-2’.
Learning is our journey. This Pandemic has actually taught us the
real meaning of “Survival of the fittest” and pushed us further to
discover, explore and somehow made us self reliant.
KC International school plays vital role in the life of young students
learning to enhance their knowledge, makes them wise and
inculcates values at the very outset of schooling years is indeed
imperative. A school that provides knowledge and wisdom to its
students can only empower holistically for a bright future.
We, at KCIS proclaim that this pandemic has not broken our spirit
and believe in the saying ‘Where there is a will, there is a way’.
So through this E- Newsletter ‘Reverberation: Volume-1’, we bring
forth the various events date wise that took place in the last four
months so that you can witness a sea change in the approach of
school towards students’ holistic growth.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our Management and
Principal, Ms. Anupama Sinha for their constant support and
encouragement to overcome all obstacles that come our way.
I also thank the Editorial Board for their contribution and also the
students for their hardwork for the success of our first quarterly
Edition of ‘Reverberation: Volume-2’.

the New”

-Socrates

The world is seeing a crisis of unprecedented nature and effects.
All the scenarios experienced up until now have been suddenly
overwhelmed by this unstoppable chain of events. This prompts
me to share a few thoughts with you.
The first and foremost, is the pride I feel for the fraternity
attached to the organization KCIS, thanks to all of you. We are
united by a common culture of discipline, flexibility, and co-
operation that makes us unbeatable and unstoppable in the
face of adversity.
I extend my most heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you,
especially the parents of KCIS who are a massive support to us
in this crisis, including everyone from the medical professionals
to those who work every day to keep our institution operating.
You are all setting an extraordinary example of commitment,
professionalism, and solidarity. You are the best guarantee that,
united, we will emerge from this crisis stronger.
Together, we can fight this pandemic.
Dear Students, Let’s move forward with resolve and without
stigma. Let’s overcome this common threat together. As we fight
the virus, we cannot let the fear go viral. Let’s break the chain.
Stay home, stay safe.

Regards
Vice Chairman, KCIS

Message from the desk of Principal Ms. Anupama Sinha
Dear Students Principal
Greetings from KCIS !

“ All progress takes place outside the comfort Zone.”
We are going through an unprecedented global predicament today. Each one of us
and the entire world is affected by the Covid -19 pandemic; as a result, our
families, communities, our economy and our entire way of life are adversely
affected.
I would like to share your anxiety and express my solidarity with you and your
families. We at KCIS have prayed for you and your families; for your safety and
health.
Let us wish and pray for all those who have been suffering directly or indirectly
during this pandemic.
To begin with, I request you all to place on record the brave hearts who have been
working tirelessly putting at risk their own life, all the volunteers, health
professionals and the dedicated teachers who all are giving their best by taking
classes through various online platforms for bridging the gap between students
and school. Their selfless service during this ongoing difficult situation is really
commendable.
Despite of all odds, we as a school and you as young citizens of this glorious
nation, have a huge role to play in the present setting and we must understand
that yet there is a tremendous window of opportunity to rethink many things. In
fact, we can reinvent the new ways of teaching - learning and can bring a change
in the process of education.
We strongly believe that this is the time to not just deal with the current
emergency, but also build foundations of resilience to face such difficult situations
in the future.
Last but not the least, I thank your parent for their support and cooperation
throughout.
Let us jointly create a world of joyful learning.
Regards
Anupama Sinha

Message from the desk of Dean Academics Ms. Arti Sharma
Dean Academics
“Everybody is faced with tough situations in their lives. But, greatness
lies in the way you tackle and handle the situation.”
No one ever realized that such a microscopic size organism can wreak
such a havoc in the entire world and be the reason for thousands of
deaths. This is something that has never happened in my known
history and is a big example of the impact of COVID-19 especially on
students’ life. The crux of the matter is we need to stay motivated at
all times and keep making efforts in the right direction, while
maintaining utmost precautions at all times. First is the good health of
everyone and second comes good education.
No one can undermine the sincere efforts of the teachers. We are all
reminded of what learning and teaching entails: the mysteries
embbed in each subject, the lectures, the assignments, the projects
and how we are into it completely. We have all realized that teaching
goes beyond these day-in and day–out activities in the countless
moments when we saw teachers go beyond the call of duty.
Nevertheless the hope says there is no option in life but to move
ahead. It is only way that you’ll be able to attain success despite
adversity.

Message from the desk of Activity Coordinator Ms. Rajni Malhotra
'Learning is a process of constantly updating in an ever - changing Activity Coordinator
World'
I am immensely happy to write for the second addition of this
Newsletter. Thanking all parents, students and teachers who are
putting in their best efforts to make this year a successful year
regardless of all uncertainty.
In the last few months where Academics was in full swing we kept
our students balanced by conducting events like Teacher’s Day,
Halloween Bash, Gandhi Jayanti, Independence Day,
Janamashtami, Rakhi, Deepawali Mahotsav, Children’s Day etc. I
take pride in appreciating all our parents who took initiative to
motivate and encourage students in this unprecedented times.
Though the mode has been changed but the enthusiasm and zeal
among students is still the same.
In the beginning, when we came up with an idea to get our
parents involved in activities we were in a dilemma if we would get
positive response from parents but thankfully the kind of support
and appreciation we received from parents is unbelievable. I thank
all the parents, grandparents and siblings.
To conclude, I request all students to keep facing the uncertainties
of life with confidence and determination.
“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there's
no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.”
– Derek Jeter.

Message from the desk of Headmistress Ms. Poonam Bhagat
Headmistress
Greetings to all! With great pleasure, I take a moment to
thank all parents, teachers and students for their humongous
support and cooperation on the completion of the first term
of the academic year 2020-21 during this uncertainty. Thank
you! All this while, remarkable online teaching and learning
took place leaving no stone unturned in the favour of
students. No one ever contemplated a scholastic year with
uncertainties and challenges that we are experiencing
presently but our teachers, students, parents and non-
teaching staff have lived up to the massive and
unprecedented change in the mode of education and our
lifestyle. Kudos to you all! We are still fighting a long battle
and we keep praying for strength and solace sticking together
in thick and thin. We pray that the second term will bring us
some much needed succor and a return to normalcy. We miss
you, children! With every good wish,
Poonam Bhagat
Headmistress

Message from the desk of Pre-Primary Coordinator Ms. Ameet Kaur
Pre-Primary Coordinator
The suddenness and duration of the COVID pandemic has
presented us with its share of challenges. It led to a
complete switch in our lifestyles, but as Mother Teresa said,
"None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can
all do small things, with great love, and together we can do
something wonderful." Dear parents and children, I would
like you all to take pride in your resilience for dealing with
these challenges so remarkably. We worked together, as a
family to turn challenges into opportunities. It is remarkable
how courageously all of us discovered the new avenues of
technology and ultimately won over the fear. All those who
are not savvy with technology, deserve a special
appreciation. The trust that we have shown in each other
has helped us remain positive throughout. This period has
not been easy for us, but I would like you all to give
yourselves a pat on your back for not giving up. Lastly, I
would like to mention that I am truly proud of the KCIS
family for never letting us down. Here's to conquering our
fears!

Message from the desk of Middle-Wing Coordinator Ms. Sonal Gupta
Middle –Wing Coordinator
"A sculptor yields the chisel and the stricken marble grows to beauty."
I have often been fascinated by the journey of a block of marble to sheer
beauty. While the others see a block of marble, only a sculptor can
envisage the end result. Painstakingly but patiently he chisels the stone
and brings forth the beauty within. I feel the job of a school is analogous to
that of a sculptor. We identify and perceive in each child his strengths that
make him unique. During the pandemic, the management, the teachers
and the students have showcased a great sense of responsibility and
proved that nothing can stop us.
Even in these overwhelming months, we ensured that education does not
stop with promoting intellectual and physical growth; Only then does the
cold lifeless marble become alive, beautiful and striking!
What the students learn today will decide what they become years from
now. So, it is our constant endeavor here at KCIS to have a futuristic
attitude towards teaching and learning no matter what the situation is.

I acknowledge and appreciate our parent fraternity for supporting us at
every level in this endeavor. I also applaud and appreciate the teachers for
their relentless efforts to ensure that each child becomes an achiever
through the online teaching learning platform.
To my students I would like to say, "Follow your passion, be prepared to
work hard and sacrifice and no one can limit your dreams."

KCIS celebrated Raksha
Bandhan with great zeal and
enthusiasm.

The event was organised from
Pre- Primary to Grade 10. The
girls made rakhis and boys made
creative gifts like cards, tiaras,
sling bags, accessories etc for
their dear sisters. They
prepared everything under the
guidance of their Art teachers;
Ms. Meenakshi Sharma, Ms.
Meenakshi Anand and Ms.
Priyanka Deol during virtual
classes. The event was organised
under the supervision of Activity
Coordinator, Ms. Rajni Malhotra.

What comes next activity of Grade 1 by Swati Ma’am

Children learn best through play and this works very well when you teach a concept such as Patterns. As they
enjoy the activity, they will understand the sequencing of items and predict "What comes next?".
So keeping it in mind , the introduction of the chapter "Patterns" was done with a small activity where in
students of grade I had to tear a paper in different shapes so that it forms a pattern. Also they were taught to
form different patterns with the help of vegetable printing, thumb printing, colour sheets and bindis. This
activity has helped them to organize their thoughts and they were able to discover different patterns at their
home. Overall, it was a fun activity conducted under the guidance of Math teacher, Ms. Swati Langer.

Children are miniature scientist.
Their curiosity for experiments is
endless. "Pick up the Ice cube”
activity by using a thread

Activity was performed by the students
of grade 5 under the guidance of EVS
teacher Ms. Sakshi Sharma via Google
Meet. She taught them the process by
which one can lift up the ice cubes using
common salt and a thread. The
objective of this activity was to enhance
the knowledge of the students about
how simple things can be used in a
scientific way, as only common salt and
thread were used to take the ice cubes
out of a tumbler. Students had shown
great enthusiasm while doing this
science experiment. Headmistress, Ms
Poonam Bhagat appreciated the efforts
of students and science teacher, Ms
Sakshi Sharma.

among them and their amazing props &
costumes. All the participants were
superb and filled the e-ambience with
spirit of nationalism.

A TALK ON NATIONAL WATER MISSION

All the water that will ever be is, right now.’ National Geographic
The most important element on the earth is water; it is the essence of life. Keeping in view the importance of water, KC International
School, in collaboration with Govt. of India organised a talk with the children of Pre-Primary Wing.
The talk started with a glass of water that the children were asked to drink sip by sip during the talk. The young KCites were made aware
of the importance of water, its universal name, and percentage of drinking water available, sources of water, uses of water and its
conservation. The children actively participated throughout the session .The young leaders of tomorrow took an oath not to waste water
but save it for a better future. After the discussion got over the children took part in various activities at home like closing the dripping
taps, watering plants with a mug, washing vegetables in a bowl etc.

PANEL DISCUSSION ON NATIONAL WATER MISSION
“Water is the one substance from which the earth can conceal nothing, it sucks out its innermost secrets and brings them to our very lips.”
Water is the most significant element to sustain life. History explains how the water was the reason that led to the existence of civilizations. In view of

use of kitchen water for gardening, proper closure of taps, etc. The students beautifully presented their ideas, suggestions and views in the form of
PowerPoint presentations, posters, quotations etc.

2. Increasing impurities in drinking water
3. Tremendous changes in climate
4. Exploitation of natural resources.
Students from grade 9 to 12 along with their class teachers participated
and presented their views in this regards which were appreciated by the
teachers and students. Students showed a keen interest towards the issue
and came up with some valuable points like rain water harvesting, efficient
industrial effluent treatment system, drip irrigation system, changing daily
habits like use of bucket instead of shower, use of kitchen water for
gardening, proper closure of taps,etc. The students were provided with
valuable data and material along with links of website for clear and
conceptual understanding of water crisis and associated problems. Besides
they were enlightened with the current Govt. strategies and mitigations in
this regards. The discussion was concluded with an affirmative mind and
approach to maximise the utility of available resources with us and to come
out with alternatives and innovations for a sustainable healthy and
beautiful life ahead.

had shown great enthusiasm while doing this science experiment.

Play is far more powerful for children, however, than many parents realize. It's actually the key to
learning. Play can help enrich learning and development key skills such as inquiry, expressions,
experimentation and teamwork.
So keeping it in mind the introduction of the topic "Comparison of Numbers"

was done in a playful way with a small activity where in students had to write any two numbers between 11 to
20 on a sheet of paper. This activity has helped them to recognise the greater number and the smaller number.
The activity was conducted under the guidance of Math teacher, Ms. Swati Langer.

Math Activity of Grade 5“ Let's understand factors using BANGLES", was done by the students of Grade V
under the guidance of Ms. Aarti Raina.
The objective of the activity was to make students understand the concept of 'factors' in an effective and
interesting manner. All the children participated in this activity with enthusiasm and zeal.

A teacher knows how to make
everything out of nothing.
When it comes to creative
learning, KCIS faculty never
leaves any stone unturned to
bring the best for their
students. Grade 7 had a fun-
filled Hindi class where their
teacher Ms. Rajni Malhotra
explained the concept of 'Kriya'
using placards. Students were
fascinated and enjoyed the
lecture. They were keen to
follow their teacher's foot steps
to make any subject fun to
learn.

The wide ranging impact of

COVID-19 pandemic is changing

many things, including the way

the education should be

imparted.

Keeping in mind, the

implementation of CBL

(competancy based

learning) introduced by

CBSE, the topic ‘Money’

was introduced to Grade II

students through an

activity today by Math

teacher, Ms Ritambra

Madan. She gave her students

the practical and live shopping

experience by going on to a

grocery store and making the

children aware of the money

value of different products

followed by tracing of coins and

pasting the things that can be

brought in exchange of coins. This

is how, they learnt about ‘Money’

and its significance.

Overall, children enjoyed their

class and were cheerful to see the

teacher taking her class out at the

shop.

Every one likes stories,
whether real or fictional.
Story Writing is an
interesting way to put our
ideas on paper and use our
imagination, creativity in
the best possible way. Class

the pictures given by their
teacher during virtual class.
It helped the students to
enhance their writing skills
in a fun filled and creative
way. Students enjoyed their
activity to the fullest.

It has been rightly said that, ''The only way to learn Mathematics is to do Mathematics.''
Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations or algorithms it is about
understanding.The students of grade 10 performed an activity on 'Lateral Surface Area of Right
circular cone'.All students activily participated in this activity under the supervision of their maths
teachers Ms Arpana Dogra.

MUNs contribute a lot in honing the leadership skills, public
speaking skills, research, writing skills and problem solving
skills. So we can say that they are a great aid in flourishing
the personality of children.

‘AN ACTIVITY ON THE CONCEPT OF THE
ROUNDING NUMBERS TO 10S AND 100S ‘.

The best way to teach any topic to children
is through a playway method of joyful
activities. So, the concept of the rounding
numbers to 10s and 100s was introduced
amongst children of Grade III through a
Rollercoaster activity. In this activity, they
were shown a rollercoaster wherein 1 to 10
numbers were written on the slope which
will help children to remember the steps of
rounding. Through this activity children
learnt the concept of rounding numbers in
a playway method and then they designed
and built a roller coaster to model the
concept of rounding. The activity was
conducted by the subject teacher Ms. Palak
Sood .
