Mangaluru: Lourdes Central School hosts educative Social Science exhibition

Media Release

Mangaluru, Oct 25: Lourdes Central School, Bejai held a successful Social Science Exhibition for classes VI to X on October 25 which was a grand success. It was an eventful day, where both students and teachers learned a lot from each other.

Aims and objectives of the exhibition:
1. To apply what the students learn.
2. To develop the student’s creative, aesthetic, kinaesthetic and speaking skills.
3. To showcase the talents of students.
4. To highlight the role of social development and to inculcate feelings of oneness.

The school’s creative sixth graders opened their eyes to the vast universe beyond, with projects on the theme ‘Our Solar System’. Their models on the different planets and constellations, the sun, the moon and the stars were innovative, imaginative and in some cases very creative.

The seventh graders on their theme ‘Environment’ brought to the forefront the different aspects of our environment with models on mountains, grasslands, wetlands, forests, biosphere and working of rivers, while highlighting their degradation.

The eighth graders introduced the ever-growing world of industries by showing the inner workings of industries like cotton, jute, coffee, poultry and dairy. The models were inventive and showed industries through a very different perspective.

Class IX presented projects on the topic ‘Disaster Management’, which is in itself ironic as they are disasters in themselves. They shone light upon the shadows of the modern world with their projects on terrorism, natural disasters, industrial and chemical disasters etc.

Lastly, the students of Class X presented the topic ‘Popular Struggles and Movements’. They spoke on the importance of common people in democracy and showed how different countries have achieved democracy throughout history.

The exhibition showcased realistic models of our solar system. Some of the models showcased the Earth’s structure, while others focused on the topographical features of our planet. The different charts, models, and diagrams describing various flora and fauna were beautifully done by the students. The models/project work was considered for subject enrichment activity.

It was an individual project/activity. Materials used for the models were:
a) Thermo coal
b) Discarded material
c) Paper mash
d) Plastic spoons
e) Twigs, leaves, sticks, straws
f) Tin

All in all, it was a great learning experience and lots of fun for everyone. Each project in its own way was notable and unique. Quoting John F Kennedy words 'Things do not happen. Things are made to happen'.
