Interactive activities such as theatre and debate were also organized to hone the students’ interpersonal skills. To raise awareness about the environment, activities such as gardening, plantation, and best-out-of-waste were also undertaken.
Dr. A. S. Gangwar, Principal, DPS Bokaro, emphasized on the importance of such activities as they not only provide a platform for students to express their talents creatively but also help in retaining the freshness of learning. “When children are involved in the learning process, they tend to learn better. Benjamin Franklin rightly said, ‘Tell me, and I forget, Teach me, and I remember, Involve me, and I learn’, keeping this in view, the school is encouraging maximum participation of students in activity-based learning”, he added.
