Dance practice among students encourages artistic expression, boosts creativity, and enhances their confidence in self-expression. It is not solely limited to the brain, as dance engages the entire body, enhancing learning, thought processes, creativity, and intelligence. Through movement combinations, dance helps improve memory, order, and sequencing skills. Moreover, dance serves as a medium for expressing emotions. It is a non-verbal form of communication that allows students to convey their feelings and ideas through physical movement. Dance provides a powerful outlet for emotional expression and communication beyond words.
The Physical Education Teacher (PET) instructs students on various activities such as pyramid formation, yoga, and Kolatam Dance.
Yoga is practiced to promote a healthy mind and body. The poses and postures of yoga not only have physical benefits but also contribute to spiritual well-being.
Formation of a pyramid is challenging, but students are enthusiastic about learning and mastering it. It involves strategic planning, coordination, and a trial-and-error approach. A pyramid is an acrobatic formation where multiple individuals support and balance each other in a tiered structure.
The PET provides theoretical explanations, and students show a keen interest and attentiveness towards the instructions.
Additionally, students begin practicing kabaddi, a combative sport played with seven players on each side. The game requires mental agility, team management, physical strength, and an understanding of the opponent’s strategies.
Students practicing mono-action engage in solo performances where a single individual portrays multiple characters in an alternating manner within the same scene. It requires versatility and the ability to adapt to different roles. Additionally, practicing one-act plays is an effective method to train and develop the voice, making it more flexible and responsive to different theatrical demands.
On April 14th, the birth anniversary of Bhimrao Ramji was celebrated. He was an Indian jurist, economist, social reformer, and political leader who headed the committee.

He played a vital role in establishing social equality and worked tirelessly for the upliftment of marginalized communities and the empowerment of the underprivileged. His efforts were aimed at the development and welfare of the oppressed sections of society.
The coordinators and volunteers meet with parents to provide advice and guidance. They emphasize the importance of students dedicating at least two hours daily to studying after returning home from school. By motivating children, parents can positively influence their behavior and academic performance. Additionally, when students guide their parents, it leads to an increase in their skills and knowledge related to studying and other curricular activities.
The parents’ meeting was organized in every school on the 24th of April as per the instructions of the Telangana and Maharastra government. During the meeting, parents were provided with the progress reports of the students for the academic year. The reasons behind students falling behind in their studies were communicated to the parents. The Earth Foundation conducted an awareness program during the summer on mobile addiction, emphasizing the precautions parents should take. Parents expressed their feedback about the Earth Foundation, highlighting its provision of quality education, sports, dance, communication, basic sports facilities, and physical education for students. The implementation of these initiatives has brought positive changes to the school, including the maintenance of a clean and neat environment. Parents proudly mentioned that after the implementation of the Earth Foundation, their children have developed various skills, actively participated in cultural activities, and students are learning dance and exercises with the help of a master. Additionally, the foundation provides skills books to students, offering them opportunities to improve their writing abilities.
At the end of the academic year, volunteers conducted end-line tests for students in every subject. These tests served as a sample assessment for students, allowing them to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in each subject. The purpose of these tests was to evaluate student performance and track their progress from the previous year. Upon comparing the results, it was observed that students showed significant improvement in their performance across all subjects. This indicated the effectiveness of the education and learning initiatives implemented during the year.
