After successfully celebrating USA Day last year, The Northstar School once again demonstrated its international spirit, this time by celebrating Denmark Day. We had special guests from Denmark, Ms. Mette (Founding advisor) and Mr. Michael Krolykke who shared with us amazing stories about life in Denmark, its education system, its diversity and rich culture. The learners were encouraged to participate in Danish folk dance, story telling, Danish rhymes and in the making of authentic Danish food.
Take a look!!
Northstar always believes in celebrating all the events in a unique way. How can we miss on celebrating a Sports Day?
We do not believe in physical well-being only but physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being is given equal importance. Therefore Northstar team took initiative to celebrate Wellness Day. After grand success of Wellness Day last year, here we come with another year of celebrating the spirit of wellness. The Northstar School learners had amazing time demonstrating their talents to their peers and parents.
Drills, Debonair Walk, Meditation and Surya Namaskar, Aerobics, Various Races, Relays, Hurdles, Body Checkup and the list of the events goes on and on. Hearts thumping with joy and horizon shining bright with our shining little stars was such a beautiful sight to behold.

Northstar Experience Day!!! A day well spent. We always believe in sharing and celebrating learning. It was a great opportunity for learners from different schools to be part of our school and experience life at Northstar. It was a great sight to see the excitement on the faces of the learners from various schools as they experienced a complete new approach to learning. Here are a few glimpses of the event.
Learning Adventures is an event that all the kids and parents across the city are looking forward to each year. This year too, it was a great delight to see so many young learners from different schools actively engaging in our play based learning activities specially designed to demonstrate how learning takes place at Northstar. Here are a few glimpses of the event
A role model is a person who inspires and encourages us to strive for greatness, live to our fullest potential and see the best in ourselves. A role model is someone we admire and someone we aspire to be like. We learn through them, through their commitment to excellence and through their ability to make us realize our own personal growth. We look to them for advice and guidance. A role model is a person who has positively influenced someone in life. A role model can be anybody: a parent, a sibling, a friend, a teacher, athletes, movie stars and people from different facets of life and profession. Our Grade 3- 4 learners just explored this very crucial aspect of life and now through various intervention of differentiation between the popular and positive role models are able to identify and choose an appropriate role model and understand the influence of them in their life.
In this day and age, it is crucial to know why we follow whom we follow. And that's precisely what the learners of Grades 3 and 4 explored as a part of their first explorations of the year. Learners explored the subject/topic/concept of Role Models. They learned to identify and differentiate the types of Role Models (media, athlete, community, etc), the qualities of a positive role model, the guiding factors, especially how beliefs and values help one make a wise choice of the role model. Besides, they have even understood how the their role model influences their choice, behaviour and lifestyle, and perception of the world and self.

Our young learners recently explored the challenges, risks and opportunities facing children worldwide. Some of our driving questions were: What are the basic needs of children? Do they differ in different places? In what ways are individuals and organisations working to protect children from risk? Discussing their own experiences helped children explore the different ways in which children respond to such challenges and risks.
Learners explored the different kinds of challenges and risks that children face in different parts of the world by watching various videos. A key element was to become aware about the children's rights framed by the UN and their correlation with the risks.
They also learnt about how individuals and organisations work for the protection of children's rights and what they can do as individuals to protect themselves and others around them.
Learners could explore the possibilities of protecting themselves and various individuals in risky situations. There are different threats posed to them as a child. They became aware of the possible dangers and knowing about solutions in such unexpected situations. They also showcased their understanding through role plays which helped them to be better equipped with such real-life dangers. This experience has made the learners aware of dangers and how to look after ourselves and be sensitized towards their surroundings.
