FROM PRINCIPAL'S DESK

A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.”

~ Paulo Coelho

Education is lifelong learning process and our common mental model is to provide positive and encouraging learning atmosphere and for exploring new possibilities. We believe that child only can learn when it feels support, encouragement and respect of its thoughts and ideas. So keeping this view we at Gajera Vidyabhavan, Sachin always take care of children’s opinions and welcome their ideas. Our distinctive academic programs and innovative teaching methodologies encourage the learners to develop critical thinking and to develop key personal, social and emotional values. Our motto is that child should take charge of the ownership for their choices and to set the goals to realize their potential skills and power.

I feel very happy to share that our children at Gajera Vidyabhavan, Sachin have taken opportunity to take part in so many activities like Spell Bee competition, Quiz competition, poetry recitation, Patriotic song competition and many more especially at the end of the school year there is always so much going on; special events, day celebrations, assemblies etc. As I signed the Participation Certificates this week I took note of how many activities our students take part in, with the greatest numbers. The children love these events and they are such an important part of our school. It takes a community effort for these things to take place and, in no particular order; here are the people who really do "Make it happen".

I would pay my sincere thanks to the parents who really encourage the children for offline classes and for paying the outstanding fees of their wards. Big thanks to the parents who have helped out to activities and competitions by giving participation of their wards. We could not do it without you! Throughout the year parents time to time come to the school to help in class and support us with a kind word or a smile. Some of these things require ongoing commitment of time and energy. It is much appreciated.

I would also like to thank our wonderful staff team for their hard work and support throughout these last few weeks of term, for their care and dedication towards their work is really greatly appreciated. Especially, since the offline classes have been started, they have been taking too much care of all the children and being very much careful to follow all Covid norms by all. Our teachers are so caring of the children and passionate in their desire to help all students achieve, along with our teacher-aides who support those children who need a little extra help. Our admin staff - the office staff, that greet all visitors, answer the phone and complete all the unseen admin tasks that keep the school functioning. The workload at the end of the year is quite daunting and they continue smiling throughout.

I pay my immense heartfelt gratitude to the higher management for their timely support and encouragement for many things to happen successful.


EMPOWERING CHILDREN | Mrs. Gayatri Patel

"Don’t limit your child to your own learning, for he was born in another time,said Rabindranath Tagore"

Empowerment is to make the children feel important,capable and valuable, be it a thought, word or a deed. Children love to be heard of, to be taken seriously and to be respected.As parents and elders we need to understand and assess their capabilities well. Children have unique thoughts insights about themselves about society and largely the world around them.

IS EMPOWERMENT REWARDING?

Children tend to learn more and become responsible. Empowering children to think and voice their opinions teaches them a better thought process and decision making which would help them when they grow as adults. They start learning to be matured. Empowerment inculcates leadership qualities. The self-esteem and confidence levels is often found high in children who are empowered at home and at school. The cricket captain of the school would certainly learn teamwork and friendly attitude towards all enabling him to lead a team at the workplace going toward. Children handle technology internet shopping and booking movie, train, flight tickets etc.

HOW TO EMPOWER CHILDREN

  • By communicating well…addressing them with respect.

  • Listening attentively allowing them to explain.

  • Involving them in activities and functions to share responsibilities at home and at school giving the the lead.

  • Involving them in discussion asking for their opinions and considering them too while making decisions.

  • Making them to feel that they are an important part of the family having an important role to play.

  • Giving them the assurance that its fine even if they don’t get it right.

With globalization advanced science and technology children have great opportunities to excel in career and in life too. Let us as elder prepare them for their future by equipping them well to face the challenges of life. Empowerment would certainly help them to lead balanced life physically intellectually emotionally and spiritually.

We help to give sparrow a healthy habitation where they can wake up every morning & fill the atmosphere with their sweet chirping. On March 20, 2010, the first World Sparrow Day was observed and since then, it is being celebrated every year around the world. The Nature Forever Society was founded by an Indian conservationist named Mohammed Dilawar who has made lots of efforts for several years to raise awareness among the people regarding the importance of conservation of the house sparrow.

World Sparrow Day is an international initiative started by the Nature Forever Society in India in collaboration with the Eco-Sys Action Foundation (France) and numerous other national and international organisations across the world to impact awareness about the house sparrow and other such birds.

Crystal Cave | Master Patel Rishi (STD VI)

Deep below a mountain near Naica, Mexico, miners searching for fresh ore deposits in 2000 came across an unexpected and awesome sight. Massive, milky-white crystals towered around them, filling a horseshoe-shaped cave. Luminous beams of gypsum bigger than telephone poles, nearly 12 m long and 1 m wide, gleamed in the miners’ lights, jutting in all directions out of the brown limestone walls, floors, and ceiling.

The Cave of Crystals, as it became named, is nestled 290 m underground, topped by a mountain rich in lead, zinc, and silver. Since its discovery by the mining company Industrias Peñoles, the subterranean chamber has drawn researchers from around the world, enticing them with both rare beauty and scientific mystery.

Juan Manuel García-Ruiz, a crystallographer at the University of Granada, traveled all the way from Spain to see the crystals for himself. García-Ruiz had grown crystals in laboratory flasks since age 15, so walking among the Naica crystals was, for him, the moment of a lifetime. “When I entered the first time, after the first couple of minutes of stupor, I burst out laughing. I was euphoric,” he says.

In the years since the crystals’ discovery, researchers—including García-Ruiz—have braved the cave’s oppressively hot and humid conditions to answer questions about the crystals’ origin and growth. Now, almost two decades later, having answered many of these questions, scientists are pivoting toward learning how to protect and preserve the crystals for future generations—if the forces at work in the mine and the mountain permit it.

Roughly 26 million years ago, a mound of magma strained upward through the earth beneath southeastern Chihuahua, Mexico. This rising magma created what is now a mountain near the town of Naica and forced hot, mineral-rich waters into caverns and gaps in the mountain’s limestone. It was in these waters that the giant crystals of Naica were born.

The cave was filled with calcium sulfate–rich water. Calcium sulfate can form several minerals, but it turned out that gypsum (CaSO4·2H2O), specifically a transparent, colorless variety known as selenite, came to be the dominant mineral in the caves.

“Each mineral has a stability zone,” explains Alexander Van Driessche, a crystallographer with the National Center for Scientific Research Institute of Earth Science, who studied the Naica crystals for his postdoctoral work with García-Ruiz. Anhydrite (CaSO4) becomes more stable above approximately 58 °C; gypsum is the stabler—meaning the less soluble—of the two below that temperature.
