Global Citizenship Awareness @ Silver Oaks Holistic Child Development: April 2019 Summary

03 June, 2019

Identity Theme Activity: Identity makes an entity definable and recognizable. Our identity is like our shadow: not always visible and yet always present. When established identities become outworn or unfinished ones, threaten to remain incomplete. Keeping it in mind, Allama Iqbal conjured up the scenario of a separate homeland for Muslims of Subcontinent and Quaid-e-Azam turned his dream into reality. The resolution for the establishment of a separate homeland, for the Muslims of British India, passed in the annual session of the All India Muslim League, held in Lahore on 22–24 March 1940, is a landmark document of Pakistan’s history. In 1946, it formed the basis for the decision of Muslim League to struggle for one state (later named Pakistan) for the Muslims. The statement declared:
No constitutional plan would be workable or acceptable to the Muslims unless geographical contiguous units are demarcated into regions which should be so constituted with such territorial readjustments as may be necessary.
Correspondingly, Oakians performed different activities to celebrate Identity day. Our objective was to enhance Oakians awareness about Personal and National Identity and within this context Oakians were provided reference context to develop and deliver Urdu Speeches on April 5,2019 ,on the theme with topics ‘Main Kon Hon’(Grades 1); ‘Meri pehchan Pakistan’ ; ‘Shanakht Ke Mukhtalif Pahlo’;‘Meri riwayat meri pehchan’;‘Mera Watan Meri Pahchan’; ‘Shanakht Ki Ahmiat’; ‘Falsafa-e-Khudi’ and ‘Mard e Momin ki Pehchan’. Learners of Pre-School enjoyed “Red Color Day” with story presentation activities.

Creativity, Innovation & Earth Theme Activity: Earth Day was created, on April 22, 1970, to reflect on our planet, our environment and what we can do to help keep them healthy. It is the nominated day on which people specially come together to share an appreciation for our planet and environment, it is a time to consider pollution, conservation and preservation and take actions to improve. Many cities have community service initiatives in place for this day, bringing people out in huge droves to plant trees, cultivate landscapes and clean up wildlife areas riddled with litter and pollution. Turning off lights and appliances in empty rooms, turning off running water, recycling and ensuring all your trash ends up in a trash bin are different ways to save our planet. It serves a reminder that all 365 days should be treated as Earth Day. World Creativity and Innovation day is observed on April 21 across the world and the goal is to build capacity for everyone to be open to new ideas and to make new decisions that make the world a better place and make their place in the world better too, in ways that do not cause harm. The day has been celebrated in over 46 countries since 2002. The learners at Silver Oaks indulged in different activities to celebrate Creativity, Innovation and Earth Days. Our objective was to highlight the proactive measures needed or could be taken to save the earth and to make it a better place to live. The primary and middle school learners participated in English Creative Writing contest. Oakians were provided with the topics like “I can help earth by…..”, “If I am provided with a chance to decorate my class I will…..”, “If we did not cut trees, the earth would be more…..”, “If I were planet earth, I would be crying because…..”, “Once I used my creative and innovative ideas and made……”, “When I will grow up I will make earth a better place to live by……”, “Eliminating plastic from earth is important because…..”, “I will use my creative and innovative ideas to devise a robot that will help me in…..”. Pupils of Pre-school enjoyed color day with Show & Tell activities.

RnR & Project Presentation Theme Activity:

Reading (Grades 1- 5) & Research (Grades 6-8) Projects are an integral part of learning at Silver Oaks Schools and College. To develop the skill of absorbing information from multiple sources, Reading & Research based activities were conducted in Grades 1 to 5 which included group presentations from their prescribed literature. In order to share work of our pupils with other learners, a campus level exhibition was held on April 26. Grades 6 to 8 undertook research and presented their portfolios on topics like “Height and Running Speed”, “School Newsletter”, “House Design”, “Water Purification”, “Water Loss: Plants and Humans - a comparison”&“Great Pyramid of Giza”. These projects take place through the academic year, under our Middle School Projects & Research Program, now in its 6th year at Silver Oaks, and aim to develop a range of skills amongst young teenagers - topical enquiry; developing the habit of research & knowledge acquisition for forming educated opinions; developing knowledge and interest in areas other than defined course content; and starting the process of acquiring the skills needed for teamwork. Pre-School undertook different alphabet and number recognition games like COUNT AND TELL, THROW THE BALL, LADDER GAME and SPOT ORT CHARACTER, in Spot it Activity. They celebrated yellow color day as well.
