Preparation of Industrial Chemistry, Art & Craft and Sculpture products for exhibition on 30th August 2014

  • Preparation of Industrial Chemistry

Apart from equipping the students with knowledge, positive attitude and values, Shalom Hills International School believes in developing skills that help them to apply their knowledge practically in real life situations. Through the school curriculum and well-integrated Work Education and Community Service Programme, the children are groomed towards their further self-growth as well as for serving and contributing to the community.

With this aim in mind, the senior graders have taken up the project of making industrial chemistry products, art & craft handicrafts and sculpture pieces under the guidance of their teachers Ms. Jalpa, Mr. Quadri, Ms. Sangeeta and Mr. Manoj. These products will be displayed for sale at school exhibitions. The money collected by way of the sale will be profitably used in buying stationery for the students of a school run by NGO Sarthak Prayas. In the bargain, the school students will pick up entrepreneurial skills as well.

A brainstorming session was arranged to finalize the final look of the product and their costing. The children were asked to include the cost of material and labour charges before fixing the final cost of product. The following articles were finalized for exhibition and sale.
