    Rolling Pin Activity

    ’Giving children the opportunity to take part in hands-on activities helps them develop a love of learning.’

    For a kindergarten child, there is no division between playing and learning, between the things he or she does just for fun and the things that are educational. 

    Our young learners of Kindergarten performed the ‘Rolling pin activity’ in which they rolled a pin wrapped by a thread, bubble paper and sand paper dipped in various colours of rainbow over a sheet to give different impressions.

            नुक्कड़ नाटक: प्लास्टिक के प्रति जागरूकता बढ़ाने का एक प्रयास

            प्लास्टिक का उपयोग और उसके हानिकारक प्रभाव के बारे में लोगों को जागरूक करने के लिए एक नुक्कड़ नाटक कार्यक्रम का आयोजन जिला पार्क में किया गया। इस कार्यक्रम में विद्यार्थियों ने प्रदर्शन किया कि प्लास्टिक का उपयोग किस प्रकार से पार्क के निकट लोगों के लिए हानिकारक हो सकता है।

            नाटक के माध्यम से, विद्यार्थी ने दर्शाया कि प्लास्टिक का उपयोग करने से नदियों, समुद्रों तथा पार्क के परिसर में कैसे कचरा बढ़ जाता है, जो कि नकारात्मक प्रभाव डाल सकता है। वे इससे निपटने के तरीके पर भी ध्यान केंद्रित करे, जैसे कि प्लास्टिक का प्रयोग कम करना, प्लास्टिक के प्रति जागरूकता बढ़ाना, और वैकल्पिक प्रकार के पैकेजिंग का प्रयोग करना।

            विद्यार्थी ने इस नुक्कड़ नाटक के माध्यम से लोगों को मनोरंजन के साथ-साथ प्रेरित किया और उन्हें सोचने पर मजबूर किया कि प्लास्टिक का उपयोग कम करना और पर्यावरण के प्रति सचेत रहना क्यों जरूरी है। इस नाटक के माध्यम से, वे न केवल जागरूकता बढ़ाए बल्कि लोगों को उत्साहित भी किया कि वे क्रियान्वित होकर पर्यावरण को बचाने के लिए कदम उठाएं।
