Jodhamal Students Celebrate Rakhi with soldiers on Indo-Pak Border

(INTACH), Jammu Chapter, organized a visit of Jodhamal students on the Suchetgarh Indo-
Pak Border, RS Pura, J&K where the students of Jodhamal Public School celebrated the
Raksha Bandhan by tying Rakhis to the soldiers.
It was an experience of its kind, and the JMPS students felt deep empathy, love and respect
for the first line of defence of our country. As a part of the celebration, the students also
distributed sweets and handed over a box full of Rakhis and boxes of chocolates to the Asstt
Commandant, BSF for further distributing to the soldiers positioned on the forward posts.
40 students of Classes 5 and 6, brimming with emotions for the nation and its protectors,
escorted by the teachers, the Administrative Officer and the School Principal reached the
Indo-Pak Border in Suchetgarh, RS Pura, J&K at 9:30 am. It was a revelation of sorts to all
the students and teachers that all soldiers sacrifice the comfort of their family and city life to
ensure that we remain safe and protected.
Amidst the chanting of Jai Hind, Vande Matram and Bharat Mata Ki Jay, these young
students tied the Rakhis on the wrists of the soldiers, and thanked them for their valour and
protection of the nation. The students were also escorted to the Flag Post of Indian side and
shown the International Border from where Sialkot, the Pakistani province is merely 11 kms.
The 100-year-old Banyan Tree which is half on the Indian side and half on the Pakistani side
was a main attraction for all students and teachers alike.
The soldiers and their officers were constantly with the students explaining to them the
importance of the Suchetgarh border, international relations, and responding to the other
queries raised by the students.
These Rakhis were made by the students of Jodhamal School in their Art & Craft activity
with a lot of warmth and love for the soldiers. They were not pieces of threads, paper or
glitters, they contained a lot of emotion for our country and its soldiers. These 40 children
carried with them the love and blessings of all Jodhamal School students and expressed their
feelings for the soldiers in front of them.
This entire activity was coordinated by Ms Deepali Puri, CCA Coordinator (Junior School),
Ms Shveta Manga, Ms Amanpreet Kour, Ms Hemu Jaggi and Ms Sonika Chalotra, Art and
Craft Teachers of Jodhamal Public School, in collaboration with INTACH, Jammu Chapter.

The aim was to motivate young people aged between 14 and 25 years to become involved in a balanced programme of voluntary self-development activities to take them through the potentially difficult period between adolescence and adulthood.
The Award’s concept is one of individual challenge, giving young people a balanced, non-competitive programme of voluntary activities which encourage personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community. Those who participate in the Award are expected to follow its requirements in a non-competitive manner with a determination to succeed, either individually or as part of a team. The Award therefore is challenging, and can be undertaken at one's own pace.

There are 3 levels of the Award – Bronze, Silver & Gold. Participants must complete the four mandatory sections of Service, Adventurous Journey, Skill& Physical Recreation.
Participants can undertake all three categories of the Award programme or enter directly at any of the three levels in the following age group; Bronze Award (for those over 14), Silver Award (for those over 15) and Gold Award (for those over 16 years).
The minimum period of participation is 6 months for Bronze, 12 months for Silver and 18 months for Gold. For each of these levels a participant is required to undertake activities under each of the four sections. At Gold level, participants undertake a Residential Project in addition.

Jodhamal Hosts a Synthetic Phonics Workshop for Junior Teachers.
SashwatiSatpatti an Alumni of Singapore University and a Synthetic Phonic Trainer from Bhuvneshwarconducted a two day vibrant workshop for the Pre Primary & Primary Teachers of Jodhamal Public School to ensure the 21st century education to the students who are entrusted to the school. The workshop started with the sounds and how to make the sound like a synthesizer and make it a synthetic sound. Stapatti discussed the 42 sounds from 26 letters of English and told the teachers to never ever make the phonic sounds using Hindi or any other vernacular rather the 42 synthetic sounds to make the students join the letters to make reading easy for them by the blended learning.
To an answer to the question What is Synthetic Phonics?SashwatiSatpatti explained thatPhonics is nothing but relating sounds (phonemes) to letters (graphemes) or group of letters. It is an instructional method of teaching children to read.
They learn how to blend letter sounds together to make words like 'Dog'. It's not easy as it sounds because 26 letters in the English alphabet correspond to 42 sounds.
Importance of Synthetic Phonics
Phonics not only helps the child to read but also spell with ease. It helps them decode words by using the knowledge of sounds. It is vital as it does not depend on the photographic memory of children and aids them in reading new and unfamiliar words, thus enriching & enhancing their vocabulary.
Synthetic Phonics Benefits to Childrenaccording to Saswati : Start Enjoying Reading;Builds Sub-Conscious Mind; Improves Speaking Skills; leads to Smarter and Self-Confidentchild.When should a child be introduced to Synthetic Phonics?
The best time to introduce phonics to a child in between 4 to 6 years. However children above 6 years & up to 9 years have not developed good English reading, speaking & spelling skills, phonics will definitely help.Why should you try learning to read early on?
Research has shown kids who are able to communicate well in English in early days of their growing perform well in their academics & actually enjoy success in school. They are free of any stress at the subconscious level & apart from excelling in studies, also have very high self esteem&self confidence. Voracious acquisition of new knowledge through reading helps children build a strong academic foundation.CoordinatorsRanju Malhotra, UrmilaKaul&NeetuJohri appreciated the workshop and said that such workshops add on to the capability of the staff and from Pre Nursery itself we need to incorporate it.
Trilok Singh Bist the Principal of the school appreciated the concept and was happy to see the sea change in all the 50 teachers who were a part of this fruitful workshop. Trustee NandanKuthiala& Vice Principal PoojaPanthri presented a token of appreciation to Saswati Nanda Satpatti for making these two days so enriching for the faculty members of Jodhamal.

Parishit from Havard Interacts with Jodhamal Students
Jodhamal students had an experience of interacting with the Havard Fame Counselor ParikshitDhanda who took a session with the students of Jodhamal on how to prepare for a life time and how to balance between the studies and the hobbies. Parikshit had made his talk so very interactive that all students felt like hearing him for more though duer to paucity of time he could not take more than an hour with the students. He gave tips on how the career options are changing and how the students are unaware of the career options which can be explored by them in the chosen subjests. He asked the kids as to how much do they know their parents and in his talks he proved that students do not know much about their parents too. Then in that case without proper research how would they know the career options related to their stream. He said that most of the parents think and associate PCB with Medical career whereas there are atleast 55 more careers attached to it and at time even more rewarding, the need is to explore and research the options and be with the changing times. Medical Transcription, Criminology, Genetic Engineering, Physiotherapy,Bio Technology, Bio Chemistry etc being few of them. He also made the kids understand that besides studies the soft skills are very imoprtant but the academic cut offs play a vital role in getting into a course. According to Parishit the subjects like Psychology are gaining the momentum as in the future it will be more of the Human studies which will fetch people more jobs and in the field of Sports the amazing change is seen in the last few years. He said few years back nobody ever thought of a wrestle earning in crores but the 21st century has made it possible for all sports to flourish be it Kabbadi, Khk Kho, Basketball, Badminton, Lawn Tennis, Table Tennis, Football or the Cricket. He told kids that even if one is not selected in the International Cricket and can only make a place in the IPLs his 7 generations can live on his earnings. Sports Management, Sports Journalism, Sports Therapy etc are some of the important courses which have been introduced today and all are highly rewarding opportunities.Students had asked a lot of questions on the diverse topics and could find soothing answers in a very befitting manner from Parikshit.
