The honour of receiving an invitation from the prestigious “The Hindu Group” to a Sports Conclave held at Chennai, on 28th June 2022, bestowed rare insights on our students, who’re ably nurtured and guided by our dedicated sports teachers, as they were spellbound by the speeches and deliberations of the luminaries of sports that galvanized them to understand the key factors of physical, mental and professional growth and ingrained in them the power of reasoning to strengthen the mindset in a world of tough competition with a never-say-die spirit.
Our holistic philosophy is profound in that it does not stop with total academic excellence as a priority but it also gives due importance to sports as a discipline for physical fitness to transform our students into well-rounded personalities. As an outcome of our earnest endeavours in this sphere, we feel euphoric to inform you that our students accompanied by the sports teachers from both the campuses of Vengambakkam and Vellore had the honour of being invited by the prestigious “The Hindu” Group to participate in a “Sports Conclave” conducted by the popular Newspaper and the Group’s premier magazine “Sports Star.” Held on 28th June 2022 at Chennai, the occasion enjoyed the privilege of having the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Thiru M.K. Stalin, as the Chief Guest who while delivering the keynote address underlined the significance & scope of the public-private partnership for the development of sports in the state. The Conclave turned out to be a very proud moment indeed for our students as they enjoyed a golden chance to meet the famous sports celebrities from diverse fields present as Special Guests. Our enthusiastic students relished the lifetime opportunity to talk to Viswanathan Anand (five-time world chess championship), N. Srinivasan (Owner of Chennai Super Kings and India Cements Ltd), Glenn McGrath (Australian fast bowler), Bharat Arun (Former India and NCA coach), Ramesh Krishnan (former Indian Tennis Star) A. Sharath Kamal, & G. Sathiyan (Indian table tennis players), Anju Bobby George (Olympian medallist), Mithali Raj (recently retired Indian cricket captain) ,V. Baskaran (Former India Hockey captain), and Narain Karthikeyan (Former F1 driver). Students were thrilled and awestruck by the fortune of their interaction with the dignitaries when the students’ queries received insightful professional explanations from the legendary players. The legends went ahead to motivate our students to take sports seriously and choose sports as a career. To capture this memorable moment, our students were lucky enough to snap photos with the sports luminaries, some of which have been uploaded to our social media websites. Besides penning down their learning outcomes from the sports conclave, our participants shall present their incredible experience of the Conclave at the school assembly. Sports keep children’s minds fresh, spur physical fitness, and make them disciplined and studious. They further develop in the young mind desirable traits such as coordination, multitasking, situational awareness, and leadership that will contribute to the enhancement of their academic achievements. Thus, our initiatives in FIITJEE Global School help maintain the right balance between sports and academics as they play vital roles in student development. FIITJEE Global School stands for a scientific and global approach to the holistic instruction and development of students. Our sports infrastructure par excellence is undeniable of global standards and our inter-disciplinary initiatives for multiple intelligence are blended with sports activities. More and more activities in this significant domain are in the offing. We place on record our gratitude to the wonderful parents and guardians for their unstinting support of our efforts. We are always pleased to receive your responses and views with regard to our students’ welfare.
At this omnipotent event, Students have written a white paper that follows.

Red Day celebration by our little red hearts of FGS. The red day was celebrated to understand different colours around them and to get connected with real-life objects. Also, Colour recognition is a key cognitive-developmental step for toddlers, as it plays an important role in object recognition and is a vital part in helping children to develop their descriptive language skills, which in turn encourages clear communication and understanding. Here comes the snippets of our colour day celebration….
Kidus Optmus kids love these activities where they learn to balance being involved in the activities. They are able to maintain a controlled body position during task performance, whether kids are sitting at a table, walking the balance beam, or stepping up onto a kerb. To function effectively across environments and tasks, we arrange the activities where they learn to acquire the ability to maintain controlled positions during both static (still) and dynamic (moving) activities. These kids also loved the Static balance and tried varied positions with control (e.g. “Freeze” or “statue” games)

People of all ages can enjoy gardening, but children will have lots of fun and gain special benefits. Also, it helps to develop skills like responsibility, Understanding, Self-confidence, Love of nature, reasoning and discovery, physical activity, cooperation, creativity, and nutrition.
By doing this gardening activity, children become more responsible and understand the value of life. Children of Grade 1 and 2 enjoyed and explored the gardening activity.
Excursions are means of educating ourselves on how certain things work and how we rely on certain services.
The session has begun, and we had a wonderful visit to the Post-office. The Pre-Primaries began their exploration at the Mahalakshmi Nagar Post-office. The children and teachers were welcomed warmly by the staff at the post office. They were taken around to see how letters are collected, segregated, stamped and then stored in pigeonholes for the postmen to collect. It was altogether a great learning experience, especially in these times of email & fax. Visiting a post office was something out-of-the-ordinary for the children although “post” is an ancient form of communication!
We had a glance at the various counters catering to the public, namely those selling stamps, envelopes, postcards etc. We were explained the way parcels are delivered to different places in the city and places in the country as well as many countries too! While returning we got to see a mail van and were also told the way the letters go by van to the airport and railway station. Later the children posted envelopes that they had prepared in their class by doodling themselves, writing their names and putting a date. They had learned to fold and addressed the letters to their homes. It was delightful to see the excitement on the children’s faces as they posted their letters in the post box.
They were naturally also very animated when their teachers played Postman in class as also when their letters were received at Home! We shared in the thrill and the education of this class trip which is likely to get a miss in the modern and fast age that we live in.

The students prepared the puffed rice balls with honey, and they served the dishes in an artistic and aesthetic way which was most appealing, and the display was a visual treat tickling our taste buds.
Whenever a new academic session starts, it brings with it a ray of positivity, newness and hope. Today we celebrated Creative morning greetings to welcome the new session and foster healthy relationships among students.

According to the Indian Shaka calendar, Holi is celebrated in Phalgun on a full moon day during the spring season, which marks the end of cold winters and welcomes spring, thus, symbolizing new beginnings. Holi reflects the deeper themes in life- the joy of having friendships, the triumph of good over evil, the expression of positive emotions, the strength to overcome challenges, negativities, arguments, or bitterness in relationships, and to move on with positive emotions. There are innumerable reasons behind celebrating Holi, the most important one being that it is the expression of togetherness & acceptance.
Here, in our school we celebrated with lot of colours and witnessed the squeal and zeal of our children celebrating holi at our campus.
