The school Annual Exhibition – ‘Orbision’ was held on 17th December, 2011, which showcased ‘Young minds at work’. It demonstrated the engagement of each student with basic elements of learning – knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and action in areas of Art and craft, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Languages, Dance and Music, Computer Science and Sports.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Mrs. Reena T. Sheth, Coordinator and Territory Manager at Brainworks Learning System Pvt. Ltd. Her presence was much appreciated by children as she provided great encouragement to the children, be it the, budding scientists, the artists, or the ones with an aptitude for languages.
The exhibition revolved around the theme ‘Forests for Life’. The idea of planting, nurturing and saving forests was portrayed beautifully through projects, models, charts, power point presentations and the enactment of a street play, which had a very broad appeal and was indeed a great way to sensitise and encourage more youngsters to go outdoors and get actively involved in saving our precious forest resources. Children also took a pledge to plant more trees, say no to plastic bags and to reuse, recycle and reduce. The art and craft section also focused on ‘Reuse’ as its central theme and aimed at arming the students and parents alike, with the knowledge of the extraordinary – that sometimes best can be made out of waste!
Another highlight of Orbision was the Geometry Fashion Show which was an innovative way indeed to look at lines, points, shapes and other such dynamics. What also caught the attention of many was the ‘Vedic Math’ corner. It was fun unearthing how huge numbers could be calculated in a matter of few seconds. Number tricks also left the spectators in awe of our little wonders.
The computer section showcased different ways of making beautiful greeting cards, birthday calendars, interesting presentations and an array of such other activities which highlighted different uses of computers.
The Music and Dance section featured various musicians and performers who have been motivating generations of great artists. Students exhibited their talent of Raags and Taals learnt in school. Live display of the cultural activities being performed and honed at school were appreciated by one and all.
The English language and sports exhibition too encompassed a wide spectrum of learnings and trends practiced in school.
To the students, ‘Orbision 2011’ was a great day because it allowed them an opportunity to exhibit their learning. Their hard work was suitably rewarded with overflowing appreciation from parents and guests.
We also thank all the parents, who have encouraged the children and contributed immensely to the success of ‘Orbision 2011’.
