Topic -Headgears of India and visit to Pochampally
An integral part of clothing is the ‘headgear’ used by both the men and women

beauty of the clothes and adds elegance to the wearers. From Nehru caps, to
Parsi topis to the Sikh Pagris and the simple sarees and odhnis worn in a
signature style depicts the true essence of that land. Headgears have come a
long way in the history of Indian clothing and are here to stay. The students of
Delhi School of Excellence created a soft board displaying the various headgears
worn by Indians on different occasions. This board helped students to learn the
names of the headgears adorned at specific functions like wedding or a formal
meeting. This colourful display was the highlight of the Heritage Fair
celebrations at DSE this November.
The school also visited Pochampally a weaving village in Andhra Pradesh to
get the children hands on experience of weaving.

ACTIVITIES REPORT JULY 2013
School, Sector 45, Gurgaon
Topic: Uses Of Plants
The term Van Mahotsava means "The Festival of Trees". Van Mahotsav is an
annual tree-planting festival in India, celebrated in the first week of July.
This movement was initiated in the year 1950 by India's Union Minister for
Agriculture, Kulapati Dr. K M Munshi. It helps spread awareness amongst people
about the harm caused by the cutting down of trees.
We familiarized the children with the significance of the day and discussed
the importance of trees in nature and the threats being caused to the existence
of mankind due to the unreasonable felling of trees. They listened with keen
interest and drew illustrations in their notebooks to depict the festival.
Throughout the history of mankind, civilizations have developed and moved
around plants. They have provided the food to eat, oxygen to breathe and have
been used extensively, as medicines by a majority of cultures around the world.
A special mention should be made to the ancient Indian medicine system,
Ayurveda, which uses herbal treatment to cure diseases and is quite popular even
today. Medicinal plants are very useful in healing various diseases. Nowadays,
thousands of unhealthy and fatal products are being made available; the level of
people suffering from diseases is very high and that's why the use of medicinal
plants can represent the best solution.
Children were explained the history of ancient medicinal systems and the
benefits of herbal medicines over modern day drugs. Reference was made to the
common regular spices and herbs used in households, as well as the most common
plants found around us, being extremely effective for treating a large number of
ailments. For e.g.
Neem being used for treating epilepsy and a sedative
Cinnamon being effective for curing fever, bronchitis and treating asthma and
Aloe Vera effective for curing skin disorders, cuts, wounds etc.
Turmeric used as an antiseptic –very effective for treating bruises, internal
wounds, leech bites, inflammation etc.
Children also illustrated various medicinal plants in their notebooks after
having written about them.
Children were made to understand how bagasse is obtained after the juice
being squeezed out of sugarcane and then being used for various purposes.
Emphasizing the importance of Reuse and Recycle, they were explained that after
the extraction of juice from sugarcane, the remain, referred to as bagasse, is
used as roughage, fuel in factories and for the production of bio-based
The children, after going through all the above sessions, were able to
appreciate the importance of plants and their various uses to us. They
participated enthusiastically in all discussions done in the class and enjoyed
illustrating the various topics.
