Republic Day Celebrations at Majeedia School

India is celebrating 66th Republic Day. Development in the country is still stagnant. For example in our city Hyderabad there are so many government schools with insufficient classrooms. These schools run on shift bases. High schools works in the morning hours, 8am to 12.30pm and primary in the postnoon, 1pm to 5pm. One such school is Government Girls High School (GGHS) Majeedia, located at Masab Tank. Majeedia school is a co-education school with three medium of instruction - English, Telugu and Urdu.
Observing 26th January, we tried to connect this school through some competitions. As we don't know the capability levels of the school students, we proposed two simple activities to be conducted. They were -
  • Creative letter writing
  • GK quiz competition

We were surprised to see good number of pupils turned up for letter writing activity. Creative writing enables the pupils to improve their writing skills. Some scanned copies for your read -

GK quiz is all about recalling the facts. Quiz enables the pupils to improve their thinking and decision making skills.
Quiz competition between the classes 6th and 7th of three medium (English, Telugu and Urdu)

There were three levels in the quiz competition. All the questions are based on their syllabus. Pupils find it little anxiety as it was first time they were playing a quiz. Everyone enjoyed and gained knowledge.

Quiz competition for high school students from 8th to 10th classes.

The teams have bifurcated based on their medium. English, Telugu and Urdu. Guess who won the quiz. Yeah! Its Telugu medium team bagged the prize.
