Coffee morning was conducted at JBM Global School for grade 5 CBSE on 6th May 2023. Coffee mornings have two-fold objectives of disseminating important information, as well as giving the stage to each child to present their views freely. The topic for the event was marine life.
MD Sh. Gurudutt Arora , Principal Dr. Upma Arora, Director Ms. Nalini Bahl , Ms Payal Batra, In charge of Primary CBSE and Cambridge Wing, Ms Vandana Gupta Coordinator Senior Wing graced the occasion and commenced it with lamp lighting to mark the beginning.
The event started with a dance on ‘hare hare Shambhu’ to seek the blessings of the God.
Then the children sang the school anthem taking pride in being a true JBMite.
Respected coordinator ma’am gave welcome speech and also told how students worked day after day to make this event successful and in the course of time improved multiple aspects like speech, diction, pitch, knowledge and overall stage presence. Basically, working towards holistic development.
And then came International Summit on Marine Life, where representatives from various countries were seated and discussed regulations that are being implemented to save marine life. Banning commercial fishing, ensuring no plastics and chemicals are thrown in the ocean, prohibiting fishing nets that harm dolphins and whales were some of the discussion points. Overall, the UN conference look which was given to the summit, was extremely fascinating.
Children also touched upon a rare but an important point of discussion i.e. water sports ethics. It was quite intriguing to know that how water friendly sunscreens are important. To add on, we should be careful not to touch marine life while scuba diving. It was eye opening how marine professions like hydrologist, marine researcher, under water archaeologist etc. play a vital role.
The compassionate spirit towards marine life continued in the form of a song which children sang beautifully.
It is not an exaggeration to say that the parents were equally participative when a quiz was held. The time fell short but the number of raised hands didn’t stop. What a fun!
Then our revered principal ma’am addressed the gathering. Her words were truly promising and motivating.
Finally, the event was culminated with a dance, wherein children from all sections joined on the stage and the crowd of parents stood automatically out of enthusiasm and excitement. The hall was resounding with claps and high spirits.
Yes! It’s time that we listen to the voice of our young ones and be more humane towards MARINE LIFE.
