Debating Club Report
The debating club of SMC aims at invoking and instilling confidence in children to speak and express their thoughts among masses. Also, not only does the Debating Club strive to produce confident speakers, but it also pays attention on burnishing the speaking and grammatical skills of children. So they speak good and speak well.
The first week in the debating club was aimed at getting the children acquainted with each other and to the art that is debating. The President , Vice President and the Secretary of the club were chosen and the aims and objectives of the club were drafted with the help and opinion of students and teachers. Sessions of the debating club encourage the children to be forthcoming and candid. Special attention is paid to Class 9th and 10th, for the students of the said classes tend to be reticent and laconic.
A number of activities wee conducted and are going to be conducted to keep the children interested and engaged. Extempore sessions are conducted every week with the children being given approximately ten minutes to prepare a short speech for or against a topic, and a rebuttal round is conducted to bring in the limelight the opinion of the audience. This prepares the students to be ready to face opposition on their opinions when they are confronted by real life situations.
Group Discussions are often conducted on a current or argumentative topic, as the Debating club believes in giving every child a fair chance and a comfortable platform to speak on. Recently, the club has started appointing surprising themes for their sessions each week. The members as told and informed about the theme on the very first session held keeping the theme in mind. This also encourages the students to stay updated and informed about all recent as well as argumentative topics. Equivalent attention is paid to speaking in Hindi, and every alternate session of the weeks is a session in Hindi and comfortable in speaking in both Hindi and English.
We realize that being confident and having strong opinions is a prerequisite for making a mark in the world, and through our little but adamant efforts, the Debating Club aims to do just that.
All good things must come to an end and this thought is unfortunately very true 8th December, 2012 was the day of presenting the various shows prepared by the various clubs. The G.K club too had prepared a quiz with the aim of providing information in an entertaining way. There were 5 separate rounds which tested the knowledge of the participants regarding various fields such as poems, science literature, current affairs and math’s. It was overall a very stimulating and pleasant experience which helped us to develop our stage skills and now we eagerly wait for the next year and for SMC have talent season -2 with a new and improved G.K Club.
To create general awareness of the local, national and international events / personalities / sports etc. and sharpen the memory through quizzing, puzzles and intelligence games.
The G.K. Club aims towards creating awareness about the ongoing happenings in India and the world. The classes conducted enhanced our knowledge about India. Various in – class quizzes were conducted to test what we have retained from our classes and from our classes we discovered some very amazing and fascinating about our Incredible India – our topic of the month.
On Wednesday 25th of July, members of the G.K. Club held a questionnaire about our school – St. Mary’s Convent High School for classes 3 to 5. The question asked were based upon their power of observations. And how much they knew about their teachers. The questions asked were accompanied by a power point presentation. It was a delightful experience as it gave us opportunity to spread awareness about our institution.
The teachers in – charge of our club are Ms. Bhaumik and Mrs. Basu. The theme of our club for the month of April – May was “Literature and Mythology”.
The main objective of our club is to enhance our knowledge and help us to remain in tune with the new updates in the field of art, culture, literature, science and technology.
In keeping with the view of our prospects and objectives, various activities like quizzes, rapid – fire rounds, questionnaires, logical and analytical reasoning were held in our club meetings. During the summer vacations, the students were asked to prepare a chart high lightening the “amazing facts and news headlines” with the combined efforts of the students, we had also come up with a beautiful logo for our club also maintain a separate record of all the general knowledge questions which are discussed in our meetings. The members of our club had been reading out the news headlines and amazing facts in the morning assemblies. On Fridays, we had been conducting a short quiz based on general knowledge for the students of other clubs.
During the month of July, few students had participated in the inter school quiz competition and had indeed faired well.
At the close of the month, the teachers in – charge had conducted a short quiz for the students of our club. We were also given the opportunity to evaluate our club activities in one of our sessions. We were openly invited to give our views and recommendations, if any. All the above activities have increased our knowledge and helped us to stay connected with the outside world. In the end, I would like to say ,
“Stay alert and stay awake,
Be curious to know about facts,
Because this will enhance your personality
And make you stand out of the crowd.”
Our literary club aims at advancing our listening, speaking and writing abilities. Our literary club organized some activities like- enacting out Idioms, aural passage, tongue twisters and rapid fire everybody enjoyed the activities Team B was chosen as the winner with 75 points. At the end, we would like to thank our dear principal and teachers for giving us an opportunity and for their full cooperation.
To strengthen the vocabulary and sharpen the memory and concentration of the students through various interesting activities like- Spell Bee, Spider's web, JAM etc.
“Vocabularies are crossing circles and loops. We are defined by the lines we choose to cross or to be confined by.”
Words are the most powerful form expression in this world. They are the tools of thought. Why do large vocabularies characterize executives and possibly outstanding men and women in other fields? The final answer seems to be that words are the instruments by means of which men and women grasp the thought of others and with which they do much of their own thinking. Our vocabulary is an important part of our personality and requires as much attention as anything else. The term ‘LITERARY’ is a measureless prospective encasing language and literature. If literature is the body then language is its backbone and both the two being boundless fields. The clubs has been doing and is doing every possible task to make the infinite, finite.
In the first few sessions we introduced ourselves to each other. The annual strategy for the club was devised where the rules, objectives and the action plan was briefly discussed with students. Soon activities like Spelling Bee and others were conducted. Our first step was to test the present vocabulary skills of the students. Indeed they all performed well. We helped them in augmenting their lexicon through various interactive sessions. Also, we held regular discussions in the club about their progress and what the members felt about the time they in the club and with the other student members. The activity involved cross-questioning rounds where the students quizzed their fellow members. It was a fun-filled experience and faired up well.
Along the daily activity, we moved on to our action plan for the month of May. It was decided that on certain days the club members would go around the school to the various classes into conduct session and hold a small quiz. The response which we got from all the classes was remarkable. The students were eager and enthusiastic throughout the session. As expected the excitement of the primary wig was on the top of the list. We were privileged to have this opportunity. This was a uniquely pleasing and unforgettable experience for all of us.
After the school opened, we put our attention towards grammar session with activities on preposition, tenses, etc. recently we had extempore sessions in the club. We aim at covering all our bones and emphasize on overall build up quality. Enhancing the vocabulary is not enough, the students need to be well versed in the technical aspect of the English language also. We are gradually progressing as a whole and steps to meet the goal of the literary clubs.
To enhance the acting ability and to overcome their shyness. The various activities are plays, monoacting, mimicry etc.
The dramatics club, lead by Mrs. M. Banerjee and Mrs. M. Shukla, concentrates on enhancing the acting skills of the students. Various activities have been conducted over the months for the attainment of our prime objective.
The first activity that was conducted by the club was ‘MONOACTING’. Many students came forward and performed and were applauded for their performance. This activity was conducted in the month of April.
In the month of May, we had conducted the ‘Adman Show’. A group of about five students each prepared the ads for the various products. The Adman Show had proved to be a great success. It was not only loved but also enjoyed and appreciated by all.
In the month of July, the club members had been involved in preparing the scripts and dialogues for the Hindi and English plays that the club members will be soon presenting to the school.
For the coming days, the club has decided on a very interesting and creative competition that is the
‘MASK PAINTING COMPETITION’
where the students will be required to portray a particular emotion through their masks. For this all the club members are divided into six club groups. Each group will be required to paint a particular emotion on their masks like love, tragedy, sadness, comedy, horror and happiness.
At the end, I would like to conclude by saying that “BE ORIGINAL. DON’T DIE AS A COPY AND BE THE BEST IN EVERY CHARACTER YOU GET TO POTRAY IN LIFE”.
Dramatics Club (Middle School)
Dramatics club is a club in which we get the opportunity to reveal our talent in the form of drama. It was very exciting to join this club.
The first day when we went there, we were told about the different activities that would be performed throughout the year. This was explained by our respective club teachers, Mrs. M. Singh and Mrs. A. Nigam. They appointed us different duties. The first activity that we performed in the month of April was Mono Acting. Mono Acting is an acting in which a person enacts as two or more characters at the same time. Many girls performed but only few were selected depending upon their performance, and the girls who did not perform well had to perform once again.
In the month of July, we had to enact a play. In the play classes 6, 7 and 8 were divided into three groups. Each group had 8 to 10 girls. Each group performed very well. The plays were both in English and Hindi.
We are happy to be a part of this club under the able guidance of our teachers. It is stimulating experience for all of us.
Maths & Science Club
To develop mental aptitude, conceptual clarity and applying scientific and mathematical concepts in daily life through quizzes, experiments and model making.
This club aims to help us to build a scientific attitude and to observe each and everything carefully so that we may create our own laws and become great scientists and mathematicians in future. The first day when we entered class 9 – A we were very much sure that the last day we came out we’ll have much to say and much to show. We all joined the club with a strong desire to explore the unknown. Maths & Science never leave our way they are always with us, whether it is to our fingers, 2 hands or 1 nose. Each and everything in this world comprises a large part of Maths & Science. The chair you are sitting on, the clothes you wear and the pen with which you write is all the creativity of science. We also had the discussions about what science is and its various branches of which the relevant ones are :- Physics, Chemistry & Biology. The next day we were divided into 5 groups
1. Edison’s Group
2. Maxwell’s group
3. Einstein’s Group
4. Pythagorus Group
5. Archimedes Group
The first activity conducted by the office bearers was Quiz 1 in which the relevant facts were questioned which we were studying or have studied till now like valency, symbols and formulaes of various elements, whits, S.I Units, equations and other things. Next was the collage making competition based on environmental issues like save water, Trees and our Mother Earth, precautions needed and causes to be mentioned. This continued for 2 days and at the last Maxwell’s group came out to be victorious. Then was the slogan writing competition in which each group has to prepare 2 slogans each for science and maths. Some of the slogans were :
“1, 2, 3, 4 Maths is what we adore, 5, 6, 7, 8 hoe we cannot appreciate.”
“Put a stop to a drop, four minute shower not an hour so don’t waste it just taste it.”
Next Quiz was based on the Inventors and their Inventions and the winners were the Einstein’s Group. Then the most interesting part of Maths which are the tricks to gain the mentioned result were taught. We were also taught the reasons why the sky is blue and why the sky is black at night. Coming after a long time, we discussed the observations of the girls that were explained by our Club Incharges. We also had hung someone interesting and amazing facts in the school campus related to Sciences. We were taught the square roots of different numbers and tables too. We can only become great and intelligent scientists only when we are not prejudge mental that is we not only see what’s happening and answee the questions. At last I would say that Science doesn’t know its debt to imagination, Men love to wonder and sow the seeds of Science. So,
Be perturbed, to gain more,
Be scimatic, to explore

Music, since time immemorial has been a way to enrich our souls and to admire the ravishing beauty of nature. St. Mary’s Convent has always been an epitome of love and peace. Therefore, “Spoken Symphony” is a small way to harmonize with the beauty of life through music. It has not only made the aura of the school more musical but has also helped the students to know each other better and to widen the horizon of our life.
Many new talents have come up in this group and the active participation of students have helped in coming up with various new fields,. Such as – “composing, lyrics written and singing in groups and solo”.
