Night-Out: Grade 9 to 12

Night-Out: Grade 9 to 12

Dear Parents,

Night out for Grade 9, 10, 11 & 12 is scheduled on Friday, 25th January 2019. Students will have regular working day on Friday, 25th January 2019 and will start with their night out after 3:00 pm. They will leave for home the next morning at 5:30 am. (Saturday, 26th January 2019)

Please refer to below given link for drop off routes on 26th January 2019, Saturday.

Night Out Bus Routes

Please refer to the details given below:

Objective:

Night-out is the time for sharing and the children learn differently from how they do within the four walls of the classroom. It is also a way to experience school after the working hours and see how the campus looks on a dark night. It teaches the child to be independent, taking them out of their comfort zone.

Therefore it is our conscious choice to make them sleep in the open; and  be courageous to face the elements of nature. Night out is about appreciating nature as much as it is about enthusiastically having fun. So these two experiences together create a powerful learning atmosphere for the students of which certain discomforts are a part of.

Hence, we urge the parents to prepare their children for being open-minded and experiencing something different from what they get at home for e.g. a warm bed in an AC room, bedtime story, ipads etc. In addition to all the fun elements involved, they should also reflect on the learning part in the night-out.

We would also like to mention a few concerns that may come up during the night out.

Concerns:

  1. Winters – Students will sleep in skating rink. If the temperature drops below 12 degree, students will sleep indoors.
  2. Mosquitoes – We take all possible steps to reduce the number of mosquitoes. However due to our location in the midst of lush green farms with stagnated water (as the crops are paddy & sugarcane) on all sides, we cannot eliminate the mosquito menace completely.
  3. Insects – At night in most months of the year there are lots of insects that are attracted towards artificial lighting. Our toilets are open at the top to allow for light and ventilation. Toilet lights have to remain switched ON from evening till night (so that students and adults can find it easily).

As mentioned, night out is as much about being close to nature therefore it is necessary that children sleep outdoors.Students  need to ensure that they are properly equipped with clothes and covers to handle the cold .Students are really well dressed and carry a good repellent cream as  we want them to have a memorable experience sleeping in the outdoors!

  5. Mosquito repellent.

Please note:

  • Students are not allowed to bring any junk/packed food to school for the night out. Mobiles/ ipods/ ipads are not allowed and if found, will be confiscated.
  • Also, as per every year’s tradition, we will be having Night tournament (Student Led event) once again, wherein students will be provided with light snacks for which an amount of Rs. 150/- will be deducted from each student’s Imprest A/c.

We encourage all students to be present for the night out, it’s an event that children really enjoy and savour. There will be sufficient number of teachers and support staff to ensure that the students are safe and secure in the school apart from extra security arrangements for the event. The school also appoints a senior staff member (HOS/Principal/ Coordinators/ Admin managers) as a safety monitor for the night out who ensures that all students are safe  in all ways.

Dear Parents,

Night out for Early Years (Nu/JK/SK)  is scheduled on Saturday, 15th December 2018. Students will reach school by 3:00 pm on Saturday, 15th December and leave for home the next morning, Sunday 16th December.

The link for pick up (Saturday, 15th December) & drop off (Sunday, 16th December) routes are mentioned here:

We would also like to mention a few concerns that may come up during the night out.

Concerns:

  1. Winters – It will be very cold, especially in the school area (where temperatures are 2-4 degrees lesser than the city) and so sleeping outdoors (in  assembly/skating rink) for children is difficult. (Nu, Jr.kg and Sr.Kg students will sleep in classrooms, G-1 to G 4, students will sleep in assembly area (Rendezvous), beyond grade 4 students will sleep in skating rink. If the temperature drops below 12 degree, even older students will sleep indoors)
  1. Mosquitoes – We take all possible steps to reduce the number of mosquitoes. However due to our location in the midst of lush green farms with stagnated water (as the crops are paddy and sugarcane) on all sides, we cannot eliminate the mosquito menace completely.

Steps taken:

  • Daily fogging in open areas in the mornings.
  • Spraying of insecticides in open areas on regular intervals.
  • During Night outs, fogging is done in the sleeping area before the students go to sleep.
  • Also, we ask parents to send mosquito repellent cream so that the teacher can help the student apply it, before going to sleep.

In spite of taking care of all the points mentioned above, there still can be cases of mosquito/ insect bite to a few children who have sensitive skin or due to allergic reaction.  In such a case the parent must inform the respective HRT / TL in advance so that the teacher can address the issue.

  1. Insects – At night in most months of the year there are lots of insects that are attracted towards artificial lighting. Our toilets are open at the top to allow for light and ventilation. Toilet lights have to remain switched ON from evening till night (so that students and adults can find it easily).

As mentioned, night out is as much about being close to nature therefore it is necessary that children sleep outdoors. Parents need to ensure that children are properly equipped with clothes and covers to handle the cold (and it is much more colder for the child compared to his/her regular bed). You must make sure the children are really well dressed and carry a good repellent cream as we want them to have a memorable experience sleeping in the outdoors!

Grade 3 : Night Out

Grade 3 : Night Out

Dear Parents,

Night out for Grade 3 is scheduled on Saturday, 8th December 2018. Students will reach school by 3:10 pm on Saturday, 8th December and leave for home the next morning at 8:00 am, Sunday 9th December.

Please refer to below given link for drop off routes on 9th December,2018 Sunday.

Night out Bus Routes

Please refer to the details given below:

Objective:

Night-out is the time for sharing and the children learn differently from how they do within the four walls of the classroom. It is also a way to experience school after the working hours and see how the campus looks on a dark night. It teaches the child to be independent, taking them out of their comfort zone.

Therefore it is our conscious choice to make them sleep in the open; and  be courageous to face the elements of nature. Night out is about appreciating nature as much as it is about enthusiastically having fun. So these two experiences together create a powerful learning atmosphere for the students of which certain discomforts are a part of.

Hence, we urge the parents to prepare their children for being open-minded and experiencing something different from what they get at home for e.g. a warm bed in an AC room, bedtime story, i-pads etc. In addition to all the fun elements involved, they should also reflect on the learning part in the night-out.

We would also like to mention a few concerns that may come up during the night out.

Concerns:

  1. Winters – It will be very cold, especially in the school (where temperature is 2-4 degrees lesser than the city) therefore sleeping outdoors (in  assembly/skating rink) for children is difficult. (Nursery, Jr.kg and Sr.Kg students will sleep in classrooms, G-1 to G 4, students will sleep in assembly area (rendezvous), beyond grade 4 students will sleep in skating rink). If the temperature drops below 12 degree, even older students will sleep indoors.
  2. Mosquitoes – We take all possible steps to reduce the number of mosquitoes. However due to our location in the midst of lush green farms with stagnated water (as the crops are paddy & sugarcane) on all sides, we cannot eliminate the mosquito menace completely.

Steps taken:

  • Daily fogging in open areas in the mornings.
  • Spraying of insecticides in open areas on regular intervals.
  • During Night outs, fogging is once again done in the sleeping area  before the students go to sleep.
  • Also, we ask parents to send mosquito repellent cream with the child so that the teacher help the student apply it on the body before going to sleep.

Inspite of taking care of all the  points mentioned above, there still can be cases of mosquito/ insect bite to a few children who have sensitive skin or due to allergic reaction.  In such case the parent must inform the respective HRT / TL in advance so that the teacher can address the issue.

  1. Insects – At night in most months of the year there are lots of insects that are attracted towards artificial lighting. Our toilets are open at the top to allow for light and ventilation. Toilet lights have to remain switched ON from evening till night (so that students and adults can find it easily).

As mentioned, night out is as much about being close to nature therefore it is necessary that children sleep outdoors. Parents need to ensure that children are properly equipped with clothes and covers to handle the cold (and it is much more colder for the child compared to his/her regular bed). You must make sure the children are really well dressed and carry a good repellent cream as  we want them to have a memorable experience sleeping outdoors!
