Jalandhar: Disha, an initiative of the Bowry Memorial Educational and Medical Trust, organized a seminar on holistic health at the Innocent Hearts School in Green Model Town. This was done for the benefit of staff and students. It was also broadcast live on YouTube. The reference person was Veena Gupta, a holistic healer and certified mind and wellness coach. She emphasized that physical, mental and social well-being are important for holistic health. To stay physically fit, she demonstrated proper breathing. She said words have power so we should avoid using words like “less, lose and never”. She said those words are the root cause of anxiety and depression. The words – love, give, grow and learn – bring positivity to life. Appreciation and gratitude were the focus. She motivated everyone to do mind mapping, visualization and positive affirmations. She explained that choosing the right food and place to eat is important. In her opinion, the new techniques and gadgets have limited the world, but spending time in a group is necessary to rise socially and individually.

Sharmila Nakra, Deputy Director of Cultural Affairs, thanked the reference person for the fruitful and productive session.

The students of all DIPS schools were welcomed by the teachers and principals on the first day. Fun games and other activities were organized by the teachers for the children. Principals served tilak to young children at the gate and welcomed them to school by giving them toffees. The teachers made various welcome posters for the children and hung them on the walls. Children’s handprints were taken on these posters. After that, the teachers said that just as all the children’s handprints are together on this poster, so they will all stay together in the class. Afterwards, all the students told their teachers and friends what they had done during the holidays and learned new things. MD Tarwinder Singh said the children were given such an environment on the first day of school because after so many days they do not suddenly feel the burden of learning when they return to school. During the summer holidays, the children escape from their studies so that they can take time off to return to this environment. CEO Monica Mandotra said children are the beauty of school. The school management always tries to give the children such an environment so that they can easily find their way around in it.
