Schooling is the stage in a child’s life when they learn not only academics, but also incorporate in themselves life changing positive traits. A child’s life can be transformed at school along with the combined support of the family. A good start to a child’s life is through a strong foundation – Education.
Purpose of NCFE is to make your child
Our school was a spectator to a spectacular foot ball match held today between Presidency School, Kasturinagar and NCFE.
The match was witnessed by an enthusiastic crowd, cheering every player’s every move. coached by Mr. Prem the players from Presidency displayed their skill which can be described as “Poetry of Motion”.
Our children coached by Mr.Suresh and Mr.Sudhakar were equally competent and performed extremely well. With high spirits they vowed to win the next match. This friendly event set the stage to the beginning of many interschool competitions to be held in the future. This match did indeed emphasize the fact that there are no shortcuts to success.
The Investiture ceremony began amid much pomp and fanfare. The Ganesh Strotram sung by our students was instrumental in evoking the blessings of the Lord. The lighting of the lamp by the Chief Guests and Principal Ma’am saw the brightness of the light illuminate the stage and elimination of the darkness becomes apparent.
The election commissioner of the school was invited to present the election report which highlighted the fact that the students were both elected and selected through Electronic Voting Application that was created by the alumni of our school. After this, all the office bearers were adorned with their sashes and badges presented by the esteemed Chief Guests and the Principal. The office bearers took an oath to serve their office with diligence and dedication and bear the responsibility to uphold the rules and regulations of the school. The Head Boy and the Head Girl expressed their gratitude to the Principal, the teachers and students for placing confidence in them.
The study of Asana in Yoga is not about studying posture but it is about using the postures to understand and transform oneself. The aims of the yoga enthusiasts are extremely varied. Some are particularly inspired by the Spiritual Element that yoga provides; others by the increased Fitness and Flexibility that it results in. Some people find solutions to suffering from varied Health Disorders and there are others who achieve an All-Round Development of a calm, stress-free mind and a fit body.
The effort at NATIONAL CENTRE FOR EXCELLENCE is to achieve the last aspect in all our students. To build a strong and efficient nation, it requires to us to have young, strong and able bodied individuals. The physical and mental strength can be improved in these individuals only by practising yoga on a daily basis. The induction of this idea in our school has seen yoga being treated as a subject. The benefits of yoga are very evident. Every time ours students gather laurels’ and accolades we cannot but credit it to Yoga too.
We were overwhelmed to see our children participate in the International Yoga Day celebration at school with passion and vigour.
When Maurice Flueret, the Director of Music and Dance at the behest of Jack Lang’s request, applied his reflection on the musical practice and its evolution: “the music everywhere and the concert nowhere” on the streets of Paris in 1982, it was called ‘Fête de la Musique’.
‘Fête de la Musique’ means ‘make music’.
This dream has become an international phenomenon, celebrated on the same day in more than 700 cities in 120 countries.
In sync with the Fête de la Musique’s purpose, students at NATIONAL CENTRE FOR EXCELLENCE were encouraged to perform during the school assemblies. This celebration saw children use their musical talent to their fullest potential. This platform paved way for the quiet and gifted children. The mesmerizing performances by the junior and senior students at school have definitely ensured that teachers start thinking of various other avenues for showcasing the talents. The students provided information on various aspects of music which was well researched. This not only enlightened the audience but also had a huge impact on their understanding of music. Like Plato rightly quoted” Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything” Every single individual at National Centre for Excellence has a soulful journey for a week and hoped to find music in every level and aspect of life in the future too.
The meaning of the word “Orientation” means adjusting or aligning oneself or one’s ideas to surroundings or circumstances. The venue at National Centre For Excellence adorned itself a festive look on the occasion of “Parent Orientation Session 2015-16”.The look was that of pride when the results of the previous year was shared in the forum. The session was initiated to align the thought process of the parents to that of the school and the CBSE Board.
The anxious parents were cordially invited by our Principal Ms. Praba Balasubramanian who set the stage for the other speakers. The agenda for the day was highlighted by Dr Sunita Sharma, our level head. The team of teachers handling the 9th and 10th grades were introduced to the parents by Ms Sumitra, our functional head. An elaborate and information session on the Assessments, Formative and Summative along with the indicators (Rubrics) was held by our Academic Head, Anitha Esther.
The new initiatives (Co-Scholastic) introduced by the CBSE board were discussed in length by the CCE co-ordinator, Jayashree Seth. This channelized the attention of the parents to the fact that it is a 360 degree development of the child that takes place at school. Every activity has various objectives and they are conducted in school keeping in mind the potential of each child.
The testimonials of the parents shared with the school staff during the question and answer session traced the wondrous educational journey they have experienced so far. This session saw parents actively participate and clarify their concerns. A vote of thanks by our level head, Dr Sunita Sharma ended the orientation session on an affirmative note when the school promised to deliver better results in collaboration with the parents this academic year too.
“If we do not permit the Earth to produce beauty and joy, it will in the end not produce food either” …….Joseph Wood Krutch.
It was the same person, a naturalist who said that it is not ignorance, but knowledge, which is the mother of wonder. Knowledge is readily available in this century through various means and forms. But the burning question, that plaques the world is “What are we doing with this abundance at hand?”
Knowledge that is prevalent at our school saw itself taking a different dimension during the World Environment Day Celebration at National Centre For Excellence. The day began with a positive approach to life, when students bought saplings to school and were eager to plant them in the school vicinity.
When the students sang medleys in sync with the theme of the Environment Day celebration “Seven Billion dreams and one Earth” we were absolutely sure that the younger generation is very clear about their dreams and aspirations towards Earth. The speeches rendered by the senior students were phenomenal. They had suggestions and solutions to almost all the issues created by mankind. Like the saying goes “We are because we believe”. This belief on conservation and preservation has become stronger and a concrete one because our future generation is all set to make the changes in the world, which is at their disposal.
After careful deliberation and much thought we had decided to move our children from an international school to NCFE
It is with utmost pride and certainty, I can tell you that ‘We have made the right choice ‘
My children have evolved and progressed within a short span of time. The values imbibed in them , the idea of exploration , scientific approach to various aspects last but not the least , and the most important one ‘ Having fun while learning ‘ have made us proud parents.
This institution has the latest and top notch facilities and learned faculty, who are bench marked in the industry of learning.
I whole heartedly thank the management team, Principal Ma’am and her entire staff members who are making this journey of learning a memorable one for my children.
Thank you again and All the best!
Mrs & Mr Rajeev Mariyil
