An enthusiastic and sentimental class XI played the perfect host to the Farewell Party for class XII. Friendship and nostalgia were aptly displayed in a short film made on the school campus showing different facets of Goenkan life. Energetic, graceful and foot-tapping dance performances enthralled the beautifully attired audience. Masquerade was the theme for the witty repartee among the comperes, Zoya S Kumar, Hardik Chetal, Nishtha Jindal and Aryan Dhingra. Soon the focus shifted to the main event: The Personality Contest – with Anaika Mehra, Abhay Chauhan and Parth Gupta as its comperes. Intelligent, beautiful, stylish and suave! Each nominee gave the judges plenty to think over. Interspersed with music, dance and scintillating stage shows, the Farewell Party culminated with the announcement of prizes for the winners of the Batch of 2018:

Many a times we find ourselves in a situation where someone suddenly gets hurt or in need of medical help. At such times we must know what action needs to be taken in that situation. Therefore students of class 5 were very eager and happy to learn ways in which they could be helpful. After learning about ‘Safety and First Aid’ they put together all the items necessary for making a First Aid Box. They were then given situations and victims to whom they had to administer First Aid. They applied their learning to help, in role play, victims of deep cuts and wounds, sprains, fractures, snake bites, burns, nose bleeds, choking etc. They learnt how to tie a tourniquet and a crepe bandage and how to dress cuts n wounds. They also demonstrated how they would react in case of various kinds of fires.
In the course of doing this lesson many shared that they were able to administer First Aid to class mates who hurt themselves in the playground or who had a nose bleed in school before reaching the medical room.
They know that keeping calm, using their presence of mind and knowledge of safety and First Aid, will be of great help at such times.
Students of class V A participated enthusiastically in a Mock Market, as part of a Math Activity. Students sold and purchased things, made bills, counted change and so, learnt to handle money and check balance too.
