Round Square Story Writing Relay –

Pass the Baton was conducted by SAI International School, Guwahati.

Writing stories allows children to unleash their creativity and imagination. They can invent characters, settings, and plotlines, and explore limitless possibilities. It encourages them to think outside the box and develop their unique ideas.

23 children of Classes V & VI of Jr School took part in the Story Writing Relay activity that was held on 18th and 19th May, 2023. The first chapter was written by the host school and was passed on to RKKGPS, Jodhpur. Daly College wrote the third chapter and illustrated it beautifully. The children had a great opportunity to work in a group and brainstorm their ideas.

The Jr school library had kids bustling around with energy and enthusiasm. The final draft was a testament of teamwork! Here are a few glimpses of the activity-

What are the differences in their findings due to different Geographical locations?

Description: Soils are the fundamental of terrestrial ecosystems. The diversity of soils with their inherent different properties, are a consequence of various mutually interactive factors such as earth substrata, climate, topography, organisms, and time. These interactions between soil life, plants and soil chemistry are essential for soil and habitat formation, maintenance, and restoration. Moreover, interactions between soils and major cycles of carbon, nutrients, and water support food production, feed, fiber, and greenhouse gas balances. It takes soils thousands of years to form, while their capacity to support life and environment may be eroded very quickly through a multitude of stressors. Concerted and collaborative action is the need of the hour to conserve soils and create ‘win-win’ action plans for soil and habitat conservation, regeneration, and sustainable development.

Daly College students participated in various collaborative project and virtual events organized by Round Square member schools of India and overseas.
