Vaccination Drive: Dose 2 for 12 to 14 years old students!
Gokhale Memorial Girls' School celebrated the 103rd Foundation Day today, with the students putting up heart-warming music and dance performances! ❤️💙💛💚
After the online programs of the last two years, they finally got to celebrate it on stage today!
One more step towards beating Corona and bringing back normal school life: today we had the Phase I of the Vaccination Drive for students of 12 to 14 years from GMGS and a few other nearby schools also!
Today the students of Classes III and IV attended a workshop on Self-Defense organised by Shoppers Stop. They participated in a presentation and a demonstration on this very important topic.
আজ ২১শে ফেব্রুয়ারি আন্তর্জাতিক মাতৃভাষাদিবস। ১৯৫২ সালের এই দিনটিতে বাংলাভাষার দাবীতে পুলিসের বন্দুকের সামনে বুক পেতে দেন বহু তরুণ ছাত্র ও সাধারণ মানুষ। বাংলা ভাষার স্বাধীনতার দাবীতে ভাষা শহীদের ঝরানো রক্ত বিফল হয়নি। নানা প্রতিকূলতা পার করে ১৯৯৯ সালে ইউনেস্কো অবশেষে ২১শে ফেব্রুয়ারি দিনটিকে আন্তর্জাতিক মাতৃভাষা দিবসের বিশেষ মর্যাদা দেয়।
দীর্ঘ ২ বছরের গৃহবন্দী অবস্থা আর অনলাইন ক্লাস এর পর আজ এই পুণ্য দিনটি আমাদের ছাত্রীদের বিদ্যালয়ে সমবেত হওয়ার প্রশস্ত দিন ছিল। আজ ২১শে ফেব্রুয়ারি উপলক্ষে বিদ্যালয়ের সরলা রায় মেমোরিয়াল হলে একটি সাংস্কৃতিক অনুষ্ঠানের আয়োজন করা হয়। এই অনুষ্ঠানে সপ্তম ও অষ্টম শ্রেণীর ছাত্রীরা নৃত্যগীতিআলেখ্য ‘আমার ভাই এর রক্তে রাঙানো ২১শে ফেব্রুয়ারি’ উপস্থাপন করে। দশম শ্রেণী তাৎক্ষনিক বক্তৃতা ও দ্বাদশ শ্রেণী ভাষা শহীদদের প্রতি শ্রদ্ধার্ঘ্য অর্পণ করে।

Today, a workshop on Internet Addiction - A Growing Menace among Students was held by our Psychology Department.
The Internet has become an integral part of our lives, but excessive and compulsive urge regarding computer use creates a psychological dependence leading to tolerance and withdrawal symptoms giving rise to psychological problems. It is lnternet addiction disorder.
The warning signs are poorly controlled computer usage, which acts as a relief from stress, depression, anxiety, loneliness etc, leading to a life of isolation where social interaction diminishes. It also hampers the academics of students who cannot go 10 minutes without their smartphone!
Physical effects include insomnia, neck pain, eyestrain etc.
Psychologically, they suffer from mood swings, fear, inability to prioritise, and have no sense of time.
Remedies to this situation are -
An extensive support system,
Getting involved in hobbies and interests,
Developing reading habit,
Monitoring computer usage,
Parents giving time,
Counselling and therapy,
and Cognitive behavioral therapy.

We hope for a world where the youth will not be enslaved to the screen and lead a happy and healthy life - both physically and psychologically!

Grandparents brighten our days a little bit more, make the food tastier too, and most importantly, sprinkle the stardust of fantasy over the mundane with their web of fairy tales! With unconditional love and patience they nurture the grandchildren and make their lives beautiful!
This year, Grandparents' Day was on 11th September, and today we had a late celebration in our school to thank them for being there!
Here are a few moments captured from the day's programme, where the children performed, the grandparents rocked the stage with their singing and recitation, and then tried to recapture a slice of their childhood in the game zone arranged for them!

Budge Budge KhushirJhuli is an NGO created with the intention of spreading knowledge and cheer, especially among the slum children living adjacent to Budge Budge station. As our beloved teachers took their precious time out to initiate such a noble activity, on the rain-drenched Saturday of 23rd July, 13 students of the Interact Club, the board members, Anwesha Das, Sriyadita Ghosh, Arjayeeta Pal, Aparajita Bannerjee, Aranyaa Kundu, Anushmita Raksh*t, Sraddha Chakraborty, Bidisha Seth, Aishiki Chatterjee, Medhashree Basu, Adrija Chatterjee, Rajita Das and Debarpita Biswas, had got the pleasant opportunity to visit this very special organization guided and accompanied by 3 teachers Mrs Saha, Ms Ghosh and Mrs Duttagupta. From 19th June to 18th July, the Interact Club of the school collected money, pens, pencils, erasers, compass, protractors, rulers and story books from the students for the NGO. We were able to collect 20,000 rupees, while the Social Service League of the school came forward with a donation of 250 notebooks amounting to 11,250 rupees. The school was happy to provide some technological aid in the form of a desktop computer. We feel honoured having received this noble opportunity and it was truly delightful and blissful to interact with the children there. We spent some time and distributed snacks (bought with the money collected from the students of GMGS). Overall, it was indeed a mesmerizing and gratifying experience and we definitely pledge to have more such days.

Recently we celebrated TANJAM, our own Inter School Competition, and this year the event was themed on Satyajit Ray and his works. the Debate was about the strata of audience of Ray's movies while the Music competition was based on the songs he created and the songs he used in his films. Science Model Making saw the students trying to recreate the riveting inventions of Prof. Shanku, and the Short Film Presentations were based on the maestro's short stories!

Irrespective of who won which event, all the participants enjoyed two days of enriching experience centered around Satyajit Ray and his abundance of genius creativity!
