Video Conference with schools in Pakistan and Indonesia

The students of classes VII – X participated in a Tony Blairs’s Face to Faith Video Conference with Syed Pannah Ali Shah Model School, Pakistan and SMA Taruna Nusantara, Indonesia on the theme ‘Environment’. The facilitator of the V.C. was Ms. Sandhya Gupta. 
The students discussed about their lives and the Environment with one another and learned a great deal from each other. The conversation started by having a description of the environment from each school. Students in Pakistan spoke about city environment and how there are many colleges and universities, whereas the village environment is very different and has fields, birds and mountains.
In the next part, the students discussed the most major environmental problems in their communities. Students from Indonesia remarked how people’s carelessness and apathy hurts the environment, and how people must realize that small actions can go a long way over time to helping the environment. They also talked about problems with traffic jams and overpopulation
During the discussion session, students shared about some government actions that penalize those that pollute the environment. The school in Indonesia has a farm and is a green campus. From GD Salwan students spoke about how people worship plants as God, and how there are religious rituals designed to purify the environment
Students did a good job of showing respect for each other throughout the videoconference with good body language. For the most part, students were able to ask each other questions based on what they had heard from their peers – demonstrating the first step in active listening. Students also shared some personal examples of what they have done to protect and save the environment.

Movie Show-He Named Me Malala

The students of Gyan Devi Salwan Public School viewed the movie He Named Me Malala an American documentary film directed by Davis Guggenheim on 11 December 2015 at PVR Naraina. The film presents the young Pakistani female activist and Nobel Peace Prizelaureate Malala Yousafzai, who has spoken out for the rights of girls, especially the right to education, since she was very young. The film also recounts how she miraculously survived and has become even more eloquent in her quest after being hunted down and shot by a Taliban gunman as part of the organization's violent opposition to girls' education in the Swat Valley in Pakistan. The students realized that girls’ education is essential. The modern age is the age of awakening of girls. They are trying to compete with men in all spheres of life. There are many people who oppose girls’ education. They say that the proper sphere of girls is the home. So, they argue that the money spent on girl’s education is wasted. This view is wrong, because girl’s education can bring about a silent resolution in the society.
