It was indeed a happening month! Starting with workshop led by our Web Rangers team for students of grade 7 and 8, the month long activities culminated with a learning cum gaming session for grade 6. Through out the month the computer Lab was abuzz with selected students of Grade 7 and 8 who took part in interactions with experts, played games, completed surveys, answered questionnaires and received training about Cyber Security issues.  

The effect of gamification of cyber security training on students (both at school and away from school) was investigated. Pre and post student and parent surveys, student and parent feedback/poll, and teacher observations were used to record changes, awareness, understanding & application of cyber security issues through the knowledge gained during a six-week study period.

In totality it was a great experience for all of us, especially so for the students who did not think that education can be so much fun. The entire action plan helped to inculcate necessary cyber security skills to help students become a better and aware netizen.

TRIP TO THE PARLIAMENT – 7TH MAY 2015

On 7th May 2015, children of Humanities Stream went to the Parliament and witnessed Lok Sabha in session. Though it was a long journey of initiating this trip, getting the pass and being there, it was well worth every effort one made. The Management – Mr. D.M. Sharma and Mrs. S. Kumar were most supportive throughout.

We were given the After Lunch slot which lasted for an hour. Walking along the corridors of power was awe inspiring. We sat in the Public Gallery Enclosure which is an elevated area and one can get a bird’s eye view of the proceedings.

It was a historic day in Parliament. The Juvenile Justice Bill was passed after the government agreed to debate a controversial clause. Women and Child Development Minister Smt. Maneka Gandhi had deliberated the bill and we could watch it on large T.V. screens while we waited for our turn to witness the proceedings live.

During our time slot, we saw the deliberation of historic Land Boundary Agreement with Bangladesh. Members of Lok Sabha passed the constitutional amendment by a unanimous vote. It was a treat to watch our External Affairs Minister Smt. Sushma Swaraj contest the bill in her inimitable style. She gave the most engrossing and convincing speech in a seamless manner. We all were extremely impressed.

Also, we witnessed lumanaries like Shri L.K. Advani, Shashi Tharoor, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Murli Manohar Joshi, V.K. Singh and others creating history on the floor on the floor of the Lower House.

It was a thrilling experience to witness a live session of Lok Sabha and to be a small part of a place where our country’s National and International history is created. It left an indelible mark on the minds of the children and became once in a lifetime experience for us!
