“Real Education fetches you more than a job. It teaches you to live. It cannot be measured in any tangible way”.

It is an enduring tradition to take time to pause, turn around to look at the fruitful year gone by, achieving both the expected and unexpected, while setting various milestones and then synergizing ourselves to move ahead to face the challenges in the coming year, with a positive attitude. We thank the Almighty God for all the blessings bestowed upon us year after year. With Great pleasure, I present to you, the Annual report of our school for the academic year 2014- 15.

Here are a few glimpses of our activities and achievements in 2014-15:

BOARD RESULT - The Academic session ended on a happy note witnessing excellent performance of the students in the CBSE Board Exams.

Class XII

Class X

We, the staff and students take this opportunity to congratulate the Students for their excellent performance and extend warm wishes for their bright future. We wholeheartedly wish that all their dreams and aspirations come true.

STAFF

The School has 50 highly qualified, experienced teachers for imparting education and guidance to the children and help build up their self - confidence, prepare them for their future careers as well as inculcate in them the basic values which are important for self development and good citizenship. In addition the school functions smoothly with the help of 7 office staff and 19 support staff.

IN- SERVICE TEACHERS TRAINING PROGRAMMES

The purpose of education is to raise an individual to a higher level of understanding and awareness, to develop a thirst for acquiring more knowledge and apply it to fullest. To achieve this aim, the school has been conducting various workshops and seminars for teachers, students and parents.

COMMUNITY OUT REACH PROGRAMME

In today’s world, defined by globalization, shrinking boundaries, new technologies and excessive materialism, the need of the hour is to focus on the cultivation of Human Values. Education without values is incomplete – for then it will only equip our children to make a living and not a life. Each one of us finds ourselves at the crossroads of value crisis in the society. It is with this conviction that we decided to acquaint ourselves and the children with the values of truth, righteousness, compassion and the courage to stand up for the right. We have three major programmes -NavChetna Club, Village adoption and Awareness Drive, that help our students to develop moral values.Nav Chetna Club organizes Visit to old age homes, and Visit to slum areas. These visit generate empathy in children, thereby they learn to respect and accept the short comings in their lives of these not so privileged people of the society. They get to understand their moral duty towards members of the society

In Village adoption Programme and we have adopted village LalliyanKhurd. The teachers of our school try to develop the skills of art and craft, music, stitching, embroidery, computer science and English speaking among the villagers. Every year school conducts rally in the adopted village to sensitize the villagers towards health problems.

It is a joy to see the children go through the panorama of these virtues and values. I am sure that each one of us and our children will carry some part of moral values with us throughout our lives. Intelligence, success, high achievement and money are important and worthy goals but would be meaningless if our children are unhappy and discontent. Let us, as parents and teachers, continue to empower the young minds entrusted to us, so that they are always a step ahead, a step faster, and a step surer to take on every challenge that tomorrow brings.

HOUSE SYSTEM

Running across age groups and classes (class 1 onwards) entire school is divided into four houses to inculcate the spirit of emulation and healthy competition which calls forth the highest effort and loyalties. There are four Houses in the school named after the great scientists. They are - CV Raman House, Newton House, Marie Curie House and Einstein House. We understand the importance of competition for the children. The school organizes various Inter house competitions like- Shabad Gayan, Yoga, Short Skit, Magazine designing, Pop songs,Shalok Gayan, Face Painting, Poster Making, Spell Bee and Jingle writing competitions. Our students presented a programme at Radio Station and it was broadcasted on 26th July ,2015. 17 students of our school participated in it.

INVESTITURE CEREMONY

Nurturing students to be future leaders, an Investiture Ceremony was held at our school on May 30,2015 to bestow the deserving students with responsibility of leading the school. It was a momentous occasion for those who could make it to be a part of the students’ council. It was a celebration of felicity and pride that brought in its wake new challenges and new aspirations. On this occasion Deepak Mahey was appointed as the Head Boy and Namrata as the Head Girl of the school.

CLUBS

The school has introduced a number of clubs as a part of the life skills program, each initiated to fulfill numerous secondary objectives, like the development of the skills needed for life such as communication, decision making, thinking, managing emotions, assertiveness, self esteem building, resisting peer pressure, and relationship skills but with a common primary objective which is to bring education closer to life.

  • SCIENCE CLUBThe main aim of this club is to develop the scientific aptitude of the students. The members of this club participated in Vigyan Uday – Science Carnival organised by CT institutions and brought laurels to school by winning various positions.The model prepared by the students attained first prize and it was based on Electromagnetism.. In Energy Conservation the students bagged third position.

  • CELEBRATIONS

    Celebrations in MSS have become an integral part of joyful learning, community building and thought provoking processes. Religious festivals from across religions, national festivals and festivals related to our environment are celebrated with great enthusiasm, fervor and pride. Children are exposed to the essence of the festivals through stories, music, dance, food, discussions and a variety of hands-on activities and projects. The festivals are not only connected to our social and environmental context but to ones inner world too. Along with the enthusiasm, fun and activities of celebrations, the qualities of sensitivity, simplicity and creativity is highlighted. We have celebrated Earth Day, World Environment Day, World Book Day, Labour Day, Press Freedom Day, Red Cross Day, Mother’s Day, Technology Day, , Independence Day, World Photography Day, World Charity Day , Gandhi Jayanti and Gurupurab. Our students took command to organize and conduct the events and participated in all the celebrations in the right festive spirit and it also helps us to teach unity in diversity.

    HOBBY CLASSES

    Every kid is born with a unique set of skills and abilities. But it is unfortunate that often they are not explored due to the set monotonous regular routines. So, in our school we try our level best to explore their hidden talent They may pick up Sports, Computer, Art, cooking, Stitching, English Speaking, Dance or Maintenance of electrical appliances.

    TRIPS AND EXCURSIONS

    “The use of travelling is to regulate imagination by reality and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are”.Samuel Johnson

    Learning cannot be confined to the four walls of the classroom. Keeping this in mind the school organizes various visits and trips for the students. Detail is as follows:-

  • Punjab Institute of Medical Sciences
  • Gita Mandir, Model Town
  • Hardy’s World
  • Science City, Kapurthala
  • A Visit to a Super Market
  • Devi Talab
  • Talhan Sahib Gurudwara
  • RCF,Kapurthala
  • PTM

    The school is following the practice of teacher-parents monthly meetings to share the progress of their ward . This practice has helped us in assessing the areas of strength and weakness for applying corrective measures. I am happy that parents take keen interest in these meetings. We always try to do something creative and different on PTM.

    On PTM our students organize their Class Shows. More over parents are happy to learn about the aesthetic development of their ward. What I would like to stress here is that it is not only the special events, but what happens at MSS on a normal working day that is really significant. The effort we put into listening to children, to parents and to each other; the thought, the discussion, the deliberation before we launch any new idea, the complete involvement of many, the appreciation of small and big acts... these are the things that make MSS stand out as a special institution among our equals.

    APPRECIATION LETTERS FROM THE HRD MINISTRY

    MSS had another feather in its cap when educators, I and two students of class X (TaranjotKaur and Sakshi Sharma) from the school received appreciation letters from the CBSE and the HRD Ministry for their commendable work in the field of education. It gives me immense pleasure to share that CBSE has acknowledged our efforts and awarded us 28 marks out of 30in scholastic as well as in co- scholastic areas. The school and staff would continue working towards achieving the school's vision and mission of producing individuals with a mature and an all round developed personality; who are socially, emotionally and culturally aware to take up the reins of the nation and prove their worth for the society at large.
