Happy School Days..

It’s that time of the year when schools are getting ready to re
-open and begin the second term of the academic session.
While all will make a fuss about going back to the school
routine after a long and enjoyable vacation, it is this same
school routine that gives them the much needed focus and
stability we all long for. Seeing friends they haven't seen in a
while can make the first day a good one. BPWS welcomed
the students back after the summer vacations on Sunday Sep

The ones who pour their hearts out !!!!!!TEACHERS

Teacher’s Day is a special day dedicated to all teachers and cele-
brated every year to honor the teachers and appreciate their spe-
cial contributions towards education. In India Teachers Day is cel-
ebrated every year on 5th September to commemorate the birth an-
niversary of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. The day is observed

with much joy by the students, who organize several events to en-
tertain their teachers. Students give gifts to the teachers, sing
songs for them, felicitate them and do lots of similar things to
show their love and respect. Teachers at BPWS felt the same emo-
tion from all the students, as the students presented a lot programs
and shared their gratitude towards teachers.

Moon Mission- Exploring the Unknown

Chandrayaan-2 is the second lunar exploration mission devel-

oped by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), after

Chandrayaan-1. It consists of a lunar orbiter, the Vikram

Life becomes a festival when Gaiety and culture blend…

Onam is the most popular festival in Kerala and is celebrated
with great pomp and show. It is believed to be the National fes-
tival of Kerala. Onam is celebrated each year in the month of
August-September which according to the Malayalam calendar
is the first month of the year called Chingam. The festivities of
the Onam last for ten days in which old and young participate
with equal enthusiasm. The word Onam is believed to have
been originated from the Sanskrit word Shravanam which in
Sanskrit refers to one of the 27 Nakshatars or constellations.
Thiru in South India is used for anything associated with Lord
Vishnu and Thiruvonam is believed to be the Nakshatra of Lord
Vishnu who pressed the great King Mahabali to the underworld
with his foot. The festival of Onam is dedicated to the King
Mahabali who though was an Asur (one with more negative
thoughts in his mind) by birth but was a Sur (one with more
positive thoughts in his mind) by virtue. It is said that Kerala
never witnessed a better time than it witnessed during the rule
of King Mahabali. He was the most just king ever. None of the
needy ever returned empty handed from his door. The myth of
King Mahabali says that the king sacrificed himself along with
everything else he had in order to stand true to his words. Thus,
as a reward for his sacrifice he was blessed to be remembered
by the people of Kerala and all his followers for eternity in the
form of Onam festival. BPWS believes in celebrating all festi-
vals with great passion and exuberance. Onam was celebrated
with the same thought at our school with lots of cultural pro-
grams showcased by the students and teachers and fun filled
games for the kids to add more warmth to it.

Protect Ozone Layer- Save Life…

The ozone layer or ozone shield is a region of Earth's stratosphere that absorbs
most of the Sun's ultraviolet radiation. The ozone layer absorbs 97 to 99 per-
cent of the Sun's medium-frequency ultraviolet light, which otherwise would

potentially damage exposed life forms near the surface.
In 1976, atmospheric research revealed that the ozone layer was being depleted by chemicals re-
leased by industry, mainly chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Concerns that increased UV radiation due to
ozone depletion threatened life on Earth, including increased skin cancer in humans and other eco-
logical problems, led to bans on the chemicals, and the latest evidence is that ozone depletion has

slowed or stopped.
September 16th was designated by the United Nations General Assembly as the International Day for

the Preservation of the Ozone Layer.
Students presented an informative assembly and to create more awareness a quiz program was con-
ducted for the students of grade I to IV on Monday, 16th September 2019.All the students actively

participated in the competition and the winners were awarded.

It’s not over until you win!!! Bhavans Fest

Competition is a key which leads us to great success. A competition means an occasion when
two or more people compete to give their best. But in student life a competition is done when a
student competes with other student in studies, sports or co-curricular activities etc. They begin
to work hard and prepare themselves. The competition provides the best environment in which
the students can compare their skills, abilities, knowledge with the others. This competition gives
courage to the students. It is a part of a student life which can’t be avoided. A healthy competi-
tion will lead to good results. Bhavans Fest is one such program which is an ongoing process
with various competitions at different levels. This month the students took part in Drawing and
coloring competition and Poem Recitation (Hindi) competition. This program always motivates
the students to perform better than the last time.

Kids with their little Stories…..

Storytelling is an ancient and valuable art that ex-
tends around the globe. As long as there have been
people, there have been stories. You are surrounded
by stories every day. The lessons teachers give in
school are often stories. Songs tell stories. Pictures
tell stories. Movies tell stories. When you tell a
friend about something that happened to you, you
are telling a story.

Stories are powerful. They can teach morals
— the values that the author of the story thinks peo-
ple should live by. They can teach history. They can
entertain us. They can make us think about things in
ways we’ve never thought of them before. They can
make us laugh. They can make us cry. Telling stories
is a large part of what makes people connected to
each other.
Keeping the importance in mind and to give our stu-
dents an opportunity to enact a story which will
build their confidence, get along with others. BPWS
had organized a Story-telling event on 26th Septem-
ber 2019.
The students of KG 1 A got an opportunity to enact
the story of Cap seller and the monkeys. The stu-
dents of KG 2 enacted the story of Elephant and his

A healthy life needs a healthy heart!!!

World Heart Day is a campaign established to spread awareness about the
health of heart among common people all through the world. It is celebrat-
ed annually all over the world on 29th of September. A particular theme is
decided for each year’s celebration in order to focus on the main subject
and make it effective. World Heart Day is an effective way established by
the world heart federation to aware people around the globe that heart ail-
ments are the leading cause of death. World Heart Federation, in collabora-
tion with the WHO, spreads important news about heart diseases and main
risk factors to the public worldwide. Students at BPWS presented an edu-
cative assembly giving information about the importance of the day and
various measures to have a healthy and happy heart.

Like the Rivers let us always go forward!!!

World Rivers Day is a celebration of the
world’s waterways. It highlights the many
values of our rivers, strives to increase pub-
lic awareness, and encourages the improved
stewardship of all rivers around the
world. Rivers in virtually every country
face an array of threats, and only through
our active involvement can we ensure their
health in the years ahead. World Rivers Day
organizers encourage all of you to come out
and participate. In particular, consider start-
ing a Rivers Day event of your own, which
might range from a stream cleanup to a
community riverside celebration. In 2005,
the United Nations launched the Water for
Life Decade to help create a greater aware-
ness of the need to better care for our water
resources. Following this, the establishment
of World Rivers Day was in response to a
proposal initiated by internationally re-
nowned river advocate, Mark Angelo. On
this important day students of Grade 4 pre-
sented a thought provoking assembly, to ed-
ucate everyone around, about the im-
portance of the day and the measures to
protect our Rivers.
