AMAR # 2104 Nurturing Sustainability and Creativity at Auxilium Baroda

“Education is not just about imparting knowledge; it’s about nurturing creativity, fostering critical thinking, and instilling a sense of responsibility towards our environment.” – Unknown.  Throughout February, Auxilium Baroda fostered creativity and environmental consciousness through a series of meticulously planned activities for students in the Primary English and Gujarati Medium section, spanning from Grades 1 to 8.

The program commenced with an engaging paper bag-making session, where children eagerly learned the art of crafting environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic bags. This activity not only taught practical skills but also underscored the urgent need to reduce plastic usage, instilling a sense of responsibility towards environmental conservation from a young age.

‘Millet Day’ followed, dedicated to understanding and celebrating the numerous benefits of millets. Through cooking demonstrations and tastings, students delved into the nutritional value, adaptability, and environmental advantages of various grains. This hands-on experience not only broadened their culinary horizons but also heightened their awareness of sustainable food choices.

Facilitated by “Circle Time” sessions, students found a platform to express their ideas and thoughts freely. These sessions not only fostered problem-solving skills but also promoted moral principles, self-esteem, and communication abilities. By creating a safe space for every child to be heard, Auxilium Baroda aimed to nurture a more peaceful and cooperative learning environment, nurturing students’ academic, emotional, and social development simultaneously.

The “Best Out of Waste” activity encouraged students to repurpose waste materials creatively, transforming them into functional or artistic objects. By challenging students to see everyday discarded items in a new light, this initiative enhanced their creativity and problem-solving abilities while instilling a profound sense of environmental responsibility.

During Creative Recreational Games Week, teachers curated games tailored to each age group, fostering creativity, teamwork, and skill development among students. Through active participation and exploration of new games, students not only had fun but also acquired valuable life skills.

These activities throughout February not only enriched Auxilium School’s curriculum but also planted the seeds of sustainability and innovation in the young minds of its students, preparing them to become responsible global citizens of tomorrow.
