A remarkable term for SRU clubs it seems! From holding competitions & campaigns to winning national debating championships, SRU clubs continue to prove that a digital world isn’t going to stop them anytime soon from having successful club activity! As the number of clubs rise to 24, so does the competition. SLLC was set on a quest to put the clubs on a pedestal of honour – ranking each one of them to its deserving spot. Teamwork, commitment and keeping the members interested was always a challenge for the EB members – and now put social media into the mix! That is only some of the many factors the clubs need to keep in check. Congratulations to all clubs! Now let’s see what they’ve got in store!

Environmental Club

The Scholastica Environmental Club has conducted a week-long environmental awareness campaign on its social media pages from the 19th-25th of the month of September, 2021. The campaign was centered around the theme of “Zero Waste”. Members actively conducted secondary research and presented their findings in the form of creative infographic slides which were uploaded to raise awareness among our school community. Members were also assigned to maintain a personal journal where they listed down what wastes were produced and how they consciously tried to reduce it, as they went along the week. The event was incredibly successful – having circulated more than 14 incredibly informative, innovative and crucial posts on The Scholastica Environmental Club Facebook and Instagram Pages. The posts covered topics such as the environmental benefits of going Zero Waste, the link between fast fashion and Zero Waste, the role of Industrial Corporation in waste management,etc. Furthermore, the slides shedded light on how we can be preventative about these problems such as by finding eco-friendly alternatives, making innovative Zero Waste DIYs, etc. Our members have shown great teamwork and confidence in conducting their research and sharing it with the rest of the school. We are very proud of their efforts. We hope that through this week, our members and the rest of our community, have grown conscious of the growing importance of Zero Waste as well as found a trusted outlet for practical ways of adapting these habits to their day to day lifestyle. It is also important to note that going Zero Waste does not have to be by going “All –in “ or “All –Out” . It is the mentality of choosing what matters over what doesn’t. Going Zero Waste can simply be growing conscious of one’s needs.”A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”Out of the submissions of the slides – the ones with the most compelling research, writing and presentation were selected to be published. Members showing active work ethic and taking the lead of their assigned group throughout the campaign have been awarded with the title of “Top Campaigner”. Presenting to you the awardees for the month of September. Congratulations everyone !

Scholastica Dance Club

Three members from the dance club prepared a dance video for teacher’s day under the direction of the choreographer. They rehearsed for three weeks before shooting the video. All the members of the dance club came together to choreograph a Rabindra Sangeet together. Multiple sessions were held throughout the week where the members voted for the song, choreographed the steps, and learnt the dance. They have recorded themselves and submitted draft videos of them practicing. In this quarter, two members have received certificates for being the most active. They had the highest minutes of activity and performance (173 minutes total) throughout the sessions.

Ted-Ed Club

Scholastica’s age-old tradition of organizing a ‘Teachers versus Students’ was carried out by the school’s TED-Ed club. Instead of hosting a typical football match – the club had to improvise and hence decided on something out of the ordinary, yet noteworthy. It was an online game called ‘Desert Island’, where both the teachers and students were each given an intelligence and they had to pitch why they deserved to live. Unlike usual student versus teacher, here it was every man for themselves- which meant we not only got to see teachers teaming akgainst students but also against themselves! . To add some masala to the game, there were two moderators who were simply there to pit the competitors against one another and crack jokes! Moreover, there were two other members bantering in the chat-box. The whole game went pretty smoothly. In the end, the winners were Body Kinesthetic – Majed Sir and Mathematical-logical – Adib sir. Nonetheless, everyone enjoyed the game which we could tell by their reviews. “Truly, well organized ,” stated Adib Sir and “I apologize for enjoying killing of people too much. You let loose the monster in me. Well done, everyone! You all deserve the warmest of plaudits,” expressed Majed Sir. The whole meeting ended on a high note as all the students wished the teachers “HAPPY TEACHERS DAY!” by showing their placards

Art In Action

There has always been hesitation within many students on what field they would like to study, or what careers they might like to pursue. Art-related careers, or careers that have to do with creativity, are some that are easily shadowed, looked over and disregarded for the biases that surround it. On the 21st of October 2021, from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm, the Art in Action had taken the initiative to host an event focused on encouraging young artists to follow their dreams. With our alumni, Ms. Inaka Mahmud, who is an Artist at Ink by Inaka, Co Founder of Footsteps Organization and Business Owner of Lucy the Bakery, as well as Mr. Syed Muzakkir Faiyaz, who is a Freelance 3D Generalist as well as Project Coordinator at Imperial Agency, the event was a huge success! Pre-recorded videos of each guest was broadcasted to all the students who had registered for the event, speaking to them to their hearts’ content about their experience in the artistic fields as well as advice them on how they can pursue their dreams as well. Ms. Inaka Mahmud and Mr. Syed Muzakkir Faiyaz were also present in the event, taking questions from students and discussing subjects such as the reluctance within our society to see Art-related as pursuable careers for our future. Students had expressed their enjoyment of the event and the opportunity to speak to their alumni on such an overlooked matter, and the Art in Action looks forward to hosting more events that speak to the hearts of talented people.
