ਬਾਣੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੁਰੂ ਹੈ ਬਾਣੀ। ਵਿਚਿ ਬਾਣੀ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਸਾਰੇ।।

heart and mind are the
true lens of the camera.’
Let’s have a glance at the true to life pictures of our activity ‘View through aperture.’ The students of XI and XII captured some realities of life to awaken us.
For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument and debate. Communication is a fundamental need for human beings to sustain in the world. Having good communication skills plays a major role in developing the overall personality or to make a person successful. Nowadays, children are largely engaged in technology and not getting involved in actual intercommunication. So, this arises the need to motivate your children to get involved and participate. This Saturday a debate competition was held for classes 7-8. The students presented their oratorical skills in debate. Not only this, the silent activities were also a hub of creativity as for classes 1-2 we had ‘Podcast’ competition. The chubby cheeks and dimpled chins spoke astonishingly. The students of classes 3-4 developed amazing Mascots in ‘Mascot Making’ and fantabulous scientific temperament was blown out as students made working and still robots in ‘Robot Making’ activity for classes 9-10.

others see and thinking what no one else ever thought.’
A creative mind brings wild ideas into reality through a disciplined eye.

She also delivered the fact that coming generation has a lot in their treasures of mind to bring into light new and creative ideas which will take our civilisation to new levels….
When you turn your worry into worship, Krishna will turn your battles into blessings. Lord Krishna is an embodiment of intelligence and love. His teachings apply to each and every moment of our life.

The dance performance by the tiny tots left the audience spellbound. Here are some eye catching moments of Janamashtami and Independence Day celebrations.
“The glory of friendship is
not the outstretched hand,
nor the kindly smile, nor the
joy of companionship.
It is the spiritual inspiration,
that comes to one , when he discovers that someone else believes in us and is willing to trust us with friendship.”
The school premises was decorated beautifully and the spirit of festivity was enhanced today as we celebrated Janamashtami with grandeur and devotion. A splendidly colorful program was organized by the children and teachers of Mahadevi Verma House, where students presented songs, dance performances and a short role play.

Freedom in the mind,
Faith in the words…
Pride in our soul…
Let’s salute the Nation on this auspicious day…

Creating A Bond of Love
“It is wonderful growing up with someone like you; someone to bank upon, someone to rely on… someone to tell everything.”
One of the deepest and noblest of human emotions,
Raksha Bandhan is one of the most endearing way to celebrate the bond between brother and sister. To strengthen this bond, a melodious and colourful show was presented to celebrate the much-awaited Indian festival of sisterly and brotherly respect. The sight of the children in their ethnic attire was one to behold.
On the auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan, children loved to enjoy the picturesque and radiant array of celebration and understood the true essence of this festival. The principal Dr. Sonia Mago inspired the children to always cherish this bond of love with their siblings.
Rakhi is not just a piece of silken tassel tipped with gold , that a sister ties round her brother's hand but it is a charm that unites them forever with love.
“One hour per day of study in your chosen field is all it takes. One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years you’ll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of the best people in the world at what you do.” — Earl Nightingale
Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will. Our institution epitomises learning and to encompass learning into new realms of knowledge is the direst need during this competitive world.

This venture aims to provide an archival outlook to the preparation of the students.
True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own. A bridge is set up inviting our students to stride ahead…..

If you always try your best
Then you'll never have to wonder
About what you could have done
If you'd summoned all your thunder.
And if your best
Was not as good
As you hoped it would be,
You still could say,
"I gave today
All that I had in me."
Yes , creativity is the sauce of all streams and the best of creativity was seen in a string of activities held in school today . There were various activities as-Design a Book Cover, Geography Bee, Screen Masters and Rangoli competition. The students came out with the utmost of their energies and displayed their talent. The principal Dr Sonia Mago appreciated the creative instincts of the students and boosted them up. Let’s have a look at the trail of their work….
Every student comes to the classroom with a different world experience. We know that students who have been exposed to many different things do better in school. In order to be successful readers, students need to relate what they read to what they've experienced. To think broadly students need to have a variety of experiences. So to provide them a broader perspective a field trip to Pushpa Gujral Science City was organised for class 9. The students got hands on experience of science and enjoyed simulated shows and dinosaurs history walk. It was really an enriching experience for all of them. The principal Dr Sonia Mago is keen to oraganise such tours for students to make their learning enjoyable.

Robotics is one of the most innovative and promising technologies that is going to find its place in almost all the applications of future. Hence, students should start learning robotics and develop an understanding of the trending technology.
Besides intellectual development of the personality being achieved inside the classroom, aesthetic development, character building, spiritual and moral values, physical growth and creativity gets better inculcated outside the classroom through co-curricular activities.
Our school organised a one day visit to Jung-e-Azadi for class 10 students ‘To travel is to evolve’ into better human beings and responsible global citizens by exposing the students to outer world.

′′ Anand brother is fortunate, the house will appear, God will come ′′
The protector of religion and humanity, the statue of sacrifice, the ninth Patshah Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji's arrival on the holy land of Amritsar on 1 April 1621 E. Happened at the house of Sri Guru Hargobind Ji, the owner of Miri-Peeri. In his childhood, by human love sacrifice and humility, giving a poor orphan child a precious dress to cover his body was the meaning of charity. When the Mughal General Pande Khan collided with him, he was such a speed that he became brave from the abandoned Mal.
AAP proved by sacrificing Sis to keep human values and religious equality alive that martyrdom is for justice, goodness, right, truth, serenity, love and light.
Breaths like Bhai kaahu kaau deet nahi nahi bhai manat ann spread dignity and self-esteem in humanity.
Guru Sahib's pronounced words and verses give a message of worldly destruction, name chanting, and spiritual adoration.
Blue get rid of bondage there is no solution.
Say Nanak, now God will help you.
If there is strength, then there is no bondage, everything is the solution.
Nanak everything is in your hands only you are the one who helps.
Fellows! Today it is necessary to follow the path told by Guru ji and become a follower of truth. Become a humanitarian and take care of yourself, take care of your family, the society will improve itself.
Students sang Guru's Jass by speaking speeches, words and poems in a function dedicated to Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji on the arrival day of Swami Sant Das Public School Jalandhar.
