School expo

(Top) Students take a look at colourful display of portraits of Kannada litterateurs at the school exhibition at Gnanaganga Vidyapeeta in Mysore on Saturday. DH PhotoNeatly dressed and enthusiastic students of the school were in full flow explaining the projects they had worked on to visitors. Interesting aspects of subjects including mathematics, science, social science, English, Kannada, Hindi and Sanskrit were displayed on colourful charts around the school.

One visit inside the classroom where the social science theme was displayed would be enough for anybody remotely uninterested to think again about studying the subject. Models of Taj Mahal, the wonder of the world , the gigantic Qutab Minar, the massive Jamia Masjid and the strong iron pillar at Mehrauli, the stone chariot at Hampi garnered the attention of a steady stream of visitors into the school.

Moving on to the maths section, would leave many, who passed the subject with great difficulty wonder if it was as easy as the students made it seem. Puzzles, simple methods to tackle arithmetic were a key feature at the expo. A look at the English section, would introduce to the doyens of literature such as William Shakespeare, American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, English writer D H Lawrence, poet William Wordsworth, William Blake and the children’s favourite Enid Blyton. Even grammar, literature, proverbs, homophones (spells differently but pronounced similarly) and idioms are also an eye-opener at the expo.
While many opine that the younger generation is shying away from Kannada, it could be proved false looking at the wide array of posters of Kannada poets and writers dotting a classroom in the school. Portraits of Jnanpit awardees and prominent litterateurs is a sight to see.

The expo would be open on November 27 too from 10 am to 5 pm
