Independence Day Celebration
-----------------------------------------------

As a part of "Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav", a celebration going on nationally since August 13, 2022 to mark the seventy-fifth year of Independence of the Nation, The Crescent School also celebrated the Independence Day today, Monday, August 15, 2022 inside the School premises.

Despite the bad weather playing spoilt sport, the students of the Secondary and Higher Secondary Classes came in good number to participate in the School function. They came daring the rain and their enthusiasm did not allow the spirit of the function to get dampened at all.

The Honorary Secretary, Mr. Shaikh Shamsher Alam, was present in the function along with the Principal, Mr. Mayukh Banerjee, all the Administrative Staff, the Teachers and the Students. The flag was hoisted by Mr. S. S. Alam and Mr. M. Banerjee amidst thunderous applause.

The students then sang the National Anthem first followed by the patriotic song, "Sare Jahan Se Achcha", with great respect.

Mr. Banerjee in his brief address advised the students not to forget the values that the Nation stands for and reminded them of the responsibilities that lie squarely on their shoulders as they progress in life.

Free Vaccination Camp - Day 2
------------------------------------------------

Following the success story of the first day of Free Vaccination Camp organised by The Crescent School in collaboration with The Kolkata Municipal Corporation on Thursday, January 20, 2022 for their students, response of the students today, Friday, January 21, 2022 was even better.

While the first day was dedicated towards the cause of the boys, the second day was dedicated towards the cause of the girls. Enthusiastic students gathered happily in good number thinking that they would be able to go back to the days of the Physical Classes at long last.

The parents/guardians who accompanied the students today felt very happy with the arrangements made by the School. Exclusive area was created for the girls for vaccination with women administering the vaccines under the watchful eyes of a lady doctor. Paramount importance was attached to proper maintenance of privacy throughout the session.

The representatives of The Kolkata Municipal Corporation were extremely happy and satisfied with the manner in which the vaccination programme was organised by the School under proper hygienic condition and following every protocol.

Free Vaccination Camp Organised.

Free Vaccination Camp was organised for the students today, Thursday, January 20, 2022 by The Crescent School inside the School premises in collaboration with The Kolkata Municipal Corporation.

Incidentally, today was the first of the two days planned for the purpose and the day was dedicated towards the cause of the boys studying in Classes IX, X, XI and XII. Tomorrow, Friday, January 21, 2022 will be dedicated towards the cause of the girls studying in the same Classes.

The boys were very enthusiastic about the vaccination programme and thronged in sizable number. They felt happy thinking that this could just be the first step towards resumption of Physical Classes. It was their frank admission that they had been getting sick and tired of sitting at home and attending to Online Classes conducted over the last two years or so.

Plenty of parents/guardians accompanied the students to witness the proceedings. They were all praise for the arrangements made by the School. There were two Medical Officers of KMC present at the venue who monitored the job of vaccination carried out by two of their expert administrators. They remained present throughout the course of the operation should any situation of emergency crop up.

At the end of the programme, the students and their parents/guardians were all praise for the professional manner in which the vaccination had been organised and admitted that they would not have been able to get their wards vaccinated elsewhere like the way the School organised.

Even the representatives of The Kolkata Municipal Corporation said unequivocally that the hygienic manner in which the vaccination programme had been organised by The Crescent School maintaining every protocol was the best among the Schools that they had experienced so far.

Subsequent to the notification that had been issued by the Government of West Bengal, The Crescent School resumed their Physical Classes in the School for the students of Classes IX, X, XI and XII on Tuesday, November 16, 2021.

The entire School was properly sanitized on Sunday, November 14, 2021 and Monday, November 15, 2021 as had been advised by "Samagra Siksha Mission - Kolkata", to ensure that the School remained free of virus before the students could come in.

As the School was due to reopen after a long layoff for a period of nearly one year and eight months, it was important for the School to make efforts towards uplifting the spirit of the students.

In order to do that, the gates of the School were decorated with balloons and flowers. Banners bearing the messages, "Happy days are here again" and "Welcome back to School" were put up at both the gates. Apart from that, flexes bearing the "Suggested Protective Measures against NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID - 19) were also stuck at solus sites at both the gates.

As the students entered the gates, Thermal Guns were used to detect their body temperature and Sanitizer was sprinkled on them. They were then offered flowers and a bar of Cadbury Five Star Chocolate each as a part of the efforts put in by the School to welcome their arrival.

In the photographs and videos, the students could be seen ready to plunge themselves into a plethora of activities, something that they had been longing for a long long time. Even the parents/guardians said unequivocally that the School had made every effort to facilitate the resumption of Schooling.

Our visit to the YAAS affected areas... 25/06/2021

Our visit to the YAAS affected areas...

Our visit to the YAAS affected areas...

Earlier we had distributed to the flood victims of "Yaas" dry food, grains, pulses, vegetables, powder milk and other essential commodities packed in carry bags, but realised that we have not been able to touch even the tip of an iceberg. During our journey back home, we took a solemn oath that we would visit those places again and again.

This time we visited the Yaas affected Sundarbans on Thursday, 24 th June. What we had done the last time was that we had interacted with the people to find out if they needed anything else apart from food and other essential commodities provided by the Government and other Voluntary Organisations.What we were given to understand then was that mosquito nets were essential to protect themselves from mosquito bites and other infectious insects during the aftermath of the flood. Therefore, we carried with us this time full size nylon mosquito nets in huge number. The enthusiasm of the flood victims was to be seen, to be believed. They admitted unequivocally that it was extremely thoughtful of us to have provided them with mosquito nets.

The villagers spoke to us with moistened eyes about their predicament. A few women folks of the village even talked about the flood becoming an annual event now. Before they get over the shock of one natural calamity and rehabilitate themselves, the second one comes and throw their normal village life totally out of gear. We had to fight back tears and keep a hold on ourselves listening to the traumatic experiences narrated by them.

We are now firmly resolute. We shall continue with the relief work of reaching out to the flood victims again and again, extending whatever little help we possibly could in our limited capacity...

TALENT HUNT
----------------

In our continued effort to try and unearth latent talents that lie hidden amongst our students, we constantly encourage all of them to think out of the box. By doing so, they come up with some brilliant ideas at times that are also quite innovative in nature.

Two of our students to Class X, Md. Khalid & Md. Khalil, prepared a model depicting a waterfall that originates in the peak of a mountain, cascades down and finally passes through a valley situated between two mountain ranges.

Photographs of the model and a video recording showing the above are appended below. Simple illustration, yet so very effective.

YAAS RELIEF 10/06/2021

YAAS RELIEF

We preach what we believe in and we practise what we preach. Our moto has always been to "put service before self". We try in our limited capacity to reach out to people every time they find themselves in distress. During the outbreak of the dreaded Covid - 19 Pandemic, we reached out to thousands of underprivileged people trying to create awareness amongst them by distributing face masks and hand sanitizers free of cost.

The aftermath of "Amphan" is still fresh in the minds of everybody. Three days after the calamity had struck the coasts of South Bengal, we visited some of the affected areas and worked in groups to distribute dry food, drinking water and dry clothes.

And now it is "Yaas". From the day the calamity played havoc in the states of Orissa and West Bengal, we started garnering resources to try and reach out to the lakhs of people rendered homeless by the natural calamity. Today, our team visited Namkhana and surrounding villages to distribute foodgrains, cooking oil,dry food, drinking water and other essential commodities packed in carry bags.

Looking to the magnitude of the devastation, we got a sullen feeling that we could not even touch the tip of an iceberg. If only we had the resources to do a million times more than what we could actually do!!!
