Solan Public School
Annual Report- 2020-21
“The beautiful thing about education is that no one can take it away from you.” B.B. King
The school started the new session on 17th February 2020 with full zeal and enthusiasm. A parent orientation event, “Masti ki Paathshala” was organized on 15th Feb 2020, where the parents attended all the club activities that the school had scheduled for the students. The outcome of the event was very inspiring and motivating for all participating members.
Agaaz-Meet and Greet session for the new students was held on 29th Feb, 2020, where all the children passionately showcased their talents. The show was a huge success which was enjoyed by the children and the parents to the fullest. After the function, the studies started with full throttle.
Solan Public School has always been very active in the social causes and thus, “Pink Walk” was organized on 8th march 2020 to celebrate the occasion of women empowerment. The walk started from the Old DC office and ended in the school campus.
Unfortunately due to the spread of COVID-19, the school had to close its doors on 21st March 2020, as per government’s directives. Under the able guidance of our chief mentor Ms Anjali Razdaan, we started our online classes on 26th March 2020. Our teachers taught on Zoom app through powerpoint presentations. Ours was the very first school in Solan to start with online classes so that distance would not affect the children’s’ education.
The very first online event for the children was held on 2nd April 2020 where the students presented their projects of all the subjects. This started a full chain of online assemblies and events, whether it was the drawing competition on Baisakhi or Hindi poetry completion on Hindi Diwas, all our students participated with full fervor and sincerity.
Our first online assessments were conducted smoothly in the month of June after which the children were given a short break. The online teaching learning process, though challenging was accomplished due to the proficiency of the staff and the vision of our management.
Along with the teaching classes there were regular PDP sessions for the staff which were conducted by our School counselor Ms Anita, our Academic Director Ms Anjali Razdaan and also by our educational partners XSEED education. These sessions were very helpful for the teachers for not only coping up with stress but also in familiarizing them with new pedagogies and latest technologies.
The gates of the school were opened again in the month of August when the staff gathered to celebrate the Independence Day with Dr Manmohan Kaushal as our chief guest. It was a moment full of pride and pleasure to watch our tricolor unfurl and swirl in the school campus. Our work for CBSE affiliation continued and slowly, the staff started coming to school in shifts thus gradually brining in normalcy.
In the month of October, we had our first open online competition for children, where they sent a small video on the occasion of Halloween. It was a smashing hit and we had difficulty in choosing the best looking ghost from all the videos we received.
Immediately after Halloween, we celebrated Diwali traditionally by making Rangoli and decorating the school campus. Before starting the Diwali break our annual Inter School competition Samanvya was also declared open with various categories. The winner of the Samanvya was Dagshai Public School, who participated not only in all categories but also with the maximum number of students.
Our Annual assessment was conducted in the month of December and the results were declared on 30th December 2020. Our annual event of MOM N ME was declared open on 25th December 2020 where videos of mothers and their children were to be submitted. We received many videos of Mother-child activities, and the best in each category, received cash prizes.
The session got over on 30th December2020 and taught us resilience and perseverance. The pandemic taught us a very important lesson of never taking anything for granted.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the parents for standing by our side, our staff members for their hard work, our students for their commendable work and last but not the least our MD Ma’am for her vision and support without which nothing could have been achieved.
Here’s to beautiful beginnings and wonderful moments ahead!
