Diversity Day at Middle School: Skill Enhancement Programme
by The Cathedral Vidya School The Cathedral Vidya School
The Middle School students celebrated
Diversity Day at the Skill Enhancement Programme conducted for the new students
joining us in the next academic session. It was a day full of activities, research
and presentations. All the information they gathered
was presented with drawings and writings. When they presented their findings to
the class they were amazed at the diversity in our country.
I’m sure it led to a moment of
pride that we belong to such a great nation.
Some of the students even dressed in
the traditional attire of the states they presented.
is a country which is one of the most diverse lands found anywhere in the
world. Be it our dress, food, languages or culture we are different from each
other though we occupy the same land in our country. One of the main reasons
for such a huge diversity could be attributed to the fact that we are
geographically very diverse too.
On the one hand, in the north we
have the highest mountains in the world - namely The Himalayas which are a home
to many glaciers and on the other hand, we are flanked by an arid hot desert
region in the west of the country, the Great Thar Desert. We are a land of
rivers too and the home of one of the ancient river civilizations in the world
– The Indus Valley Civilization. Our landscape boasts of a very long coastline
and an archipelago of islands. Thus our most vibrant landscape and unique
climate creates a diversity that is beyond one’s imagination.
We can also boast about India being
the birthplace of the oldest religions in the world such as Hinduism,
Buddhism Jainism and Sikhism. Islam and Christianity are religions that have
come into our country from the west. In spite of such huge differences what
binds us together is the crucial element of our diversity.
As we were
celebrating the diversity of culture and heritage of the various states in
India. Students presented each state, selected by them in terms of geography,
climate, flora and fauna, language, food, clothes, historical places and events
We can be different from each other
as chalk and cheese but we can create one of the most beautiful amalgamations
of cultural diversity.
There are 29 states and 7 union territories in India. The states have their
own government while the union territories are governed by the central
government. India is beautiful country and has almost every part of the world
in it, naturally. We belong to country where we can holiday in the snow-capped
mountains and the desert as well. We have the oceans around us gifting us with
an exuberant coastline, south west of India and the humid subtropical
climate as well in the North East of India. The cultural diversity in clothes,
food and lifestyle is also according to the climatic and other natural factors.
The Cathedral Vidya School ranks
amongst the list of best
boarding schools in Mumbai. We experience the beauty of our country in
the serene and scenic backdrop at one the most beautiful hill stations of
India, Lonavala. Here we study with students who come from all parts of the
country and many foreign countries as well.
The SEP students were
divided into groups - the North, South, East and West. Students chose a state
and conducted a detailed research about it. This led them to discover the
geography, history, climate, the flora, the fauna and also the interesting
places to visit in each state.
We study interesting subjects like
Geography and History through a research and experience based pedagogy at The
Cathedral Vidya School, Lonavala an #InternationalResidentialSchool In Pune.
