(FEBRUARY 21, 2021)

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”


Those who develop the ability to learn continuously and acquire new and better forms of knowledge that they can apply to their lives will be the harbingers of the future of our society for the future. Keeping this in mind the students of class 5 created history by presenting a virtual AIL presentation in 2 slots on February 21, 2021. Art Integrated Learning (AIL), an embodiment of experiential learning, helped make the entire teaching and learning process more engaging, involving and holistic. The biggest Virtual AIL presentation of class 5 was intricately woven with the strands of knowledge, information, awareness, entertainment, sensitivity and compassion. The talented Goenkans ensured to make it memorable by showcasing the school’s vision for the future, and kept the audience engaged, awestruck, excited and spellbound.

The students took the audience on an adventure titled ‘Walls Tell us a Story’. Walls do not always divide. To the positively disposed, a wall is a canvas on which to paint the vision of tomorrow. Walls are what remain as the signs of long forgotten civilizations as they are unearthed by archeologists. Hopping from one room to another which showcased art, science, communication and much more, the audience was shown that besides being a canvas, these walls also protected us and gave us the strength to create art and science. The Goenkans were encouraged in this endeavour by parents and guardians through full some praise. The feedback from our audience has spurred us to make the most of what we have and achieve even higher. A Google form based on the AIL presentation was shared with the students which further enhanced and strengthened their learning.
