On the 19th of April 2022, grade 11 highlighted the importance of the core of the IBDP curriculum. Our exhibition consisted of a TOK exhibition, a CAS showcase, and an EE Café.
It was a culmination of months of research, experiences, and activities. After having worked tirelessly for the TOK exhibition, we were given an opportunity to employ our critical thinking and communication skills in order to convey to our fellow students, parents, and teachers our ability to reflect on “how we know what we know.” Lively discussions and intriguing discussions led not only to the loss of our voices but also to our enrichment and a broadening of perspectives.
For the EE Café, we showcased our interests in fields related to the wide range of IBDP subjects and we explained our research question (although tentative) and what we hope to achieve in the upcoming months. As the extended essay is a rigorous project to undertake, the guidance, suggestions, and questions that were shared with us today are going to be vital when the document actually starts to crystallize.
CAS is another vital part of the IB experience and today, we displayed the results of our efforts over the past few months and how we have grown by immersing ourselves in our community.
Overall, it was a wonderfully enriching experience and everyone involved had a great time!

Reflections on Tree Plantation

The climate is changing and B.D. Somani students want to put their best foot forward to combat its dangers. The EMERALD sustainable foundation, CPRA, and MCGM Corporator, Ms. Harshita Narwekar, organised a tree plantation drive on the 5th of June 2022 – World Environment Day at CPRA Greens garden. Manshika and Lahar from Grade 11 and Mr. Siddhesh volunteered to highlight that small endeavours are the stepping stones to fighting against the environmental challenges we all face.

Art Reflections

Lo and behold! B.D. Somani grade 6 students put up a series of Greek mythological plays and art exhibits, inspired by their Greek history lessons. In the process, not only did they make their own props with reference to actual Greek artefacts, but they also tried their hand at making 3D jewellery. At B.D. Somani, a single lesson in a single subject is used to impart skills across fields and topics. Stay tuned for more!

“Mellontikos Technologia – The Future Technology,” May 2022

In May, we had our first Design and Technology exhibition at the D & T Lab called ‘Mellontikos Technologia – The Future Technology’. Our MS students displayed their work, and were wholeheartedly appreciated by parents and fifth graders who came to the exhibit. We look forward to hosting many such D & T exhibitions, showcasing our students’ exceptional talents, and boosting confidence in their innovative ideas.
