Shoots and Sprouts 2 – Harvest Time

Shoots and Sprouts – 1 – Published on December 1, 2014

‘As you sow, so shall you reap’, this commonly heard proverb in the literal sense held very true to the students of Grade 5. On the February 16th, the students got to harvest the fruits of the seeds they had planted. They could not contain their excitement and amazement on seeing what their love, effort, hard work and dedication to this project had got them.  The

students got corn cobs, potatoes, tomato, chilly, avrekalu, green gram, mustard seeds, wheat, spinach, coriander, onions, radish, carrots and sesame seeds.  In addition to students, the school gardener Chinnappa put in a lot of effort by helping the students right from sowing to watering the plants.

The journey till the harvest day has been a wonderful experience for these students. Some of the vegetables were consumed by the construction workers on the campus.  The students were happy to see that their work helped few people to have good food.  Though the parents were amazed as to how the students could squeeze some time to work on this activity, they were happy that the children learnt how to make the environment greener.

House Cup 2014-15

Winning the house cup is a big achievement – and big achievements require teamwork, perseverance and an all-round personality. That’s what the Phoenix house students showed, whether it was in building the quickest human pyramid, having the courage to run 1600 meters or acting out a humorous play. At the same time, the House mentors, Ms. Bindu and Ms. Ankitha, helped me greatly to manage and organise the team in every event that we participated in. So, it was because of every student and teacher’s involvement that we won the Overall trophy.
