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.

India 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 and tourism.

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.
