On the 4th of July, Saturday, all the members of the student council and a few select students of class 10, attended a workshop on ‘Leadership’ by Knowledge XP. It was an interactive session, clubbed with fun and learning. It helped the student council to bring out their leadership qualities and thereby help both, the students and the school in totality.
The mentors started with ‘the five finger contract’, where each finger denoted a promise, for e.g.: the ring finger- commitment, the index finger said –respect all and so on. There was another game named ‘the autograph bingo’ – where the students had to complete a grid (consisting 25 smaller grids) as soon as possible. This taught them time management. Another fun-loving game was ‘the moonwalk’, where one leg of a student was tied to the other of another student, and so on, to form a long chain. There were two such teams for a race. This taught them to listen to instructions carefully, manage time, plan and strategize before callously jumping on to a task. There were many more similar games which the children enjoyed a lot namely; ‘Magic Word’ , ‘Tunnel Relay’ , ‘ Talk to me’ , and so on.
In the end, some Sheeji cards (picture cards) were scattered on the floor and the students were suppose to choose one that best suited their experience for that day. This activity proved that they were creative, thoughtful and extroverts. The day ended on a good note where they were all charged and energized to take the responsibility as leaders, on their strong shoulders.
