Dear Parents,

इस सप्ताह हमने एक नई ईकाई पर्यावरणीय पर्यटन ( Eco tourism )की शुरुआत की जिसमे विद्यार्थियों को पर्यावरणीय पर्यटन के बारे में जानकारी दी गई व उसके महत्त्व को समझाया गया । विद्यार्थियों ने अपनी शैक्षणिक यात्रा के अनुभवों को भी साझा किया ।

इस दौरान विद्यार्थियों को एक वार्तालाप (conversation) सुनाया गया जिससे विद्यार्थी  पर्यावरणीय पर्यटन ( Eco tourism )व पारंपरिक पर्यटन (Traditional Tourism)का तुलनात्मक अध्ययन कर सके व एक ज़िम्मेदार पर्यटक के तौर पर प्रकृति को ज्यादा क़रीब से समझ सके ।

पर्यावरणीय पर्यटन पर एक वीडियो भी दिखाया गया जिससे वन्य जीवों का आदर करना,प्रकृति का सम्मान करना व प्राकृतिक सम्पदा के प्रति जागरूक होना ,साथ ही उस स्थल की पारंपरिक व ऐतिहासिक धरोहर व मान्यताओं का सम्मान   करना  सिखाया गया ।

पर्यावरणीय पर्यटन में की जाने वाली लंबी पैदल यात्रा ,साइकलिंग ,ट्रैकिंग ,राफ्टिंग ,तैराकी व टेंट में रहना आदि बातों पर चर्चा की गई ।

विद्यार्थियों ने अपनी शैक्षणिक यात्रा पर पर  पॉवर पॉइंट प्रेजेंटेशन बनाया व कक्षा में प्रस्तुत किया ।

Dear parents,

This week, the SL is working on the 7th poem of Langston Hughes. They have three more poems to go. The HL is working on Animal Farm where students have been assigned excerpts from the text to analyse – this would help them with improving their skills.  As per planning, in the last few classes before the IOC they would be working on the assessment component in class. However, students should regularly record IOCs and send it across for feedback.
