CMP Bala Vihar® Grade 8A
Class 6 : Summary
RAW review: Healthy Competition: Students were asked to reflect on what it is, is it necessary, pros and cons, how to make competing fun etc and share their thoughts. We reiterated how to keep bitterness out of competition and the real competition is with our own Self.
Story: We covered Drona's background story and the training of the Kauravas and Pandavas in Drona's gurukula. We discussed a few incidents at the gurukula with great lessons for all students to learn about focus/concentration, applying knowledge in real life, developing the right vision - as our vision colors the view of the world.
We analyzed the character of Drona, and highlighted Arjuna and his qualities that make him the best student.
RAW: Our assignment this week is to practice some focus and concentration by playing a fun game of wastepaper basketball at home. They can share a short video clip of themselves practicing to just have some fun and motivate each other. NBA, here we come! :)
Gita Chapter 12: We learnt to chant shlokas 1 and 2.
