Kindness Week 2022

14 November, 2022

What is Kindness? Kindness is Everything. Kindness is all the different ways both big and small we express care, concern, and consideration for ourselves and those with whom we share the world. Kindness exists as a smile, heartfelt words of encouragement, thoughtful gestures of affection, and compassionate acts of generosity so many of us witness, perform, and receive as we move through life. In a world filled with struggle and pain, kindness is like a deep cleansing breath that rejuvenates and refreshes us with its goodness, and gives us the strength to persevere despite our troubles. Kindness is a reminder of why we’re here and how we can each use our lives to help others. Swarnim International School is celebrating the Kindness Week and we started Day 1 to Day 5.

Pre-primary classes came alive with parents, children and teachers singing rhymes together with actions and expressions. As the parents revisited their childhood , their children watched their uninhibited performances in awe. Sing Along sessions help parents understand how rhymes build vocabulary, confidence and improve pronunciation.

Yoga, which originated in India and has been a part of our civilization for millennia, is a practice that orients our mind, body and spirit. On International Yoga Day, the Pre-Primary children displayed different animal postures in Yoga as they heard stories about those and later drew pictures.

Students of the Secondary Section researched and made power point presentations about Yoga as a productive tool to enhance physical and mental well being.

Fathers Day

20 June, 2021

Every child looks up to his/her father as a superhero and feels proud in saying My Daddy strongest. This year, as we celebrate Fathers Day on 20th June, we would like to express our gratitude to all the fathers who stood strong amidst all crisis with a smile. At Swarnim, preprimary students made craft items, sang songs and played games with their fathers. Upper KG children prepared sandwiches, shakes and choco balls, which they had learnt as a part of their Summer Vacation Homework to say, Daddy, we love you always. You are the best.

Inhale sabr exhale shukr... Wishing all Eid Mubarak.

14 May, 2021

Eid is all about wearing new clothes of kindness which never wear off. It's about putting the aroma of love and spreading it everywhere. Most importantly, it's about wishing for health, happiness and prosperity for all. Our Eid celebration was essentially about praying to the almighty for strength to endure every difficulty and also healing the planet and ushering in a healthier society for all. Pre-Primary students wore white as it's a colour of peace and simplicity. They were shown a short video which taught them the values of sharing and caring. Children made cards and wrote down their messages on them. Food, drinks and henna are some of the essential ingredients of Eid celebration. So some of our children prepared a drink named 'Sharbat-e-Khaas' with fruits available at home and relished it with great delight. Another group drew palm imprints on paper and made beautiful patterns on them with henna.

World Health Day, 7th April, was celebrated with several activities that enlightened our children to be cautious and careful about their physical and mental health. Pre-Primary students pledged to eat healthy food and bid farewell to junk food. They performed Yoga, breathing and free hand exercises in order to keep their body fit and healthy. Students chanted the famous lines  Early to bed and early to rise, makes us healthy, wealthy and wise! Children were shown a video which highlighted the significance of different good bacteria in our digestion and also explained the threat that the bad bacteria pose to our health. They were asked to identify the different healthy habits and discuss how those can be easily incorporated in our lives. Health, happiness and peace are few things that money can never buy! Thus, our children were encouraged to appreciate the mental well-being of each other as they made kindness cards. Each child wrote a compliment for a friend to uplift the happiness quotient of the class.


National Science Day

28 February, 2021

Science is everywhere in our lives. It is there in the largest heavenly body and it is there in the smallest atom around us. Science is not just about books but it surrounds us every second of our lives. National Science day is celebrated on the 28th of February every year. It is celebrated because renowned scientist Dr. C.V. Raman discovered the Raman Effect, the process of scattering of light particles by molecules of a medium, on this day in the year 1928. Students of Classes 3 to 7 learnt about Dr. Ramans life and his works. Through his life the students learnt that nature inspired him to find out the secrets of science. They were asked what inspires them to learn science. They made posters and also talked about their favourite topics. It was overwhelming to see the response of the students. We believe that we could inspire them to be critical thinkers and future scientists of our country.


Swaraswati Puja Celebration 2021

16 February, 2021

Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Jayanti 2021

23 January, 2021

We celebrated the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose to pay homage and remember his indomitable spirit and selfless service to the nation. Children were shown videos that introduced them to the life and work of this inspirational leader. Some students danced on songs like 'Agun Jalo' and 'O Amar Desher Maati' to remember the spirited personality of Netaji and his unflinching devotion to his motherland. Children also drew posters, wrote slogans and discussed the significance of Bose's ideologies in modern India as Netaji himself had said, "One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives." The virtual preprimary classrooms of Swarnim reverberated with ‘Kadam Kadam Badaye Ja’ while others danced to ‘Nanha Munna Rahi Hoon’. UKG students spoke a few lines about the great leader. The students also made the famous cap of Netaji with paper and coloured it with the tri colours. It was heartening to see such young minds imbibe the essence of national pride. Jai Hind.

Christmas Celebration 2020

25 December, 2020

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." We ended this challenging and difficult year on a cheerful and positive note as all our children came together to celebrate Christmas. They were at their creative best as they decorated their rooms with handmade Christmas trees and Santa Claus models. Preprimary children made cup cakes and Swiss rolls too. Children enjoyed listening to Christmas stories like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, watched a short movie - The Gift of the Magi and sang Christmas Carols. They played and enjoyed games like Santa Says and Musical Statues in the class. Some became Secret Santa and made beautiful cards for their friends. Children learnt that Christmas means a lot more than just gifts; it is about being good to one another. Let the yuletide spirit bring cheer and smiles to all across the world. We wish you a Merry Christmas.

Sing-Along (Pre-Primary)

19 December, 2020

If you are happy and you know it clap your hands…. ! At Swarnim we try and find out ways to make the path of learning smooth. Teachers and parents work hand in hand to ensure the same. One such initiative is the sing-along session, especially organized for our parents by our teachers. This time the students watched as their parents sang and danced to rhymes along with the teachers. This helped parents to be familiar with the words and actions of the rhymes done in class along with a few new ones. It also brought back their school days. As we say learning is an ongoing process and there’s no age limit for learning, our parents actively took part in the sing-along session amidst their tight schedule and loved reminiscing school days.
