Keeping the theme of the month (Value of Growth Mindset) in mind, the Middle School commenced their first Co-curricular Activity on a positive note by organising an Inter-House Shloka Chanting Competition.
The event began with an invocation dance by grade VI students who set the tone for the event.  
The auditorium reverberated with holy chanting music as the 24 participants presented their couplets in Sanskrit.  The chants became more meaningful when the participants summarised the meaning and benefits of the shloka.
The event instilled positivity in the audience and motivated the houses to convert the strengths into super powers and weakness into strengths.

The CBSE Peer Life Skills Training Programme @RFSSEM

The first peer life skills webinar was held for class 9. It was scheduled for one and a half hour, in virtual mode on MST. The theme covered was Evolution of Life Skills- Journey from Core Life Skills to 21st century skills.

 It was an interactive session conducted by the CBSE trained peer educators Vedanshi Upadhyay, Suhani Paliwal, Kashvi Jain and Jyot Ajmeri, supported by TGT Ms. Rajrupa Sengupta and Special Educator Ms. Urvi Dharamsey. The participants shared their own experiences, through anecdotes.

 They were introduced to the 10 life skills that one already has but does not inculcate while acting.

They were given a free and open platform to come forward and speak about the problems they had been facing and the way they chose to cope with it.

 Since we all believe that adolescence is like a delicate glass mug which has to be handled with care, this programme proved to be an enriching session, in which the learners could relate and interact with each other.
