Global Indian International School strongly believes that learning is maximized when enjoyed, so this summer, GIIS introduces an exciting lineup of Summer Camp activities that offer something new for every child to learn. The first is the Heartfulness MENA “Confluence Heart Mind Connect” Summer Camp. This is an interactive program designed by dedicated volunteers in the age group of 12-58 yrs of age.
All the 21 programs over 7 weeks are FREE of cost. There will be six sessions on ‘Science & Art of Communication’ through drama, adventure, photography, painting, music, nature, and another six sessions, a Heartfulness ‘Exclusive’ on Heartful Communication for children. The program also includes seven sessions of Yoga by a certified Heartfulness yoga trainer for the physical and mental health and well-being of the children as well as two ‘On Demand’ special sessions with the principals of GIIS Dubai & AD in conversation with guest faculty, children and parents.
The Confluence Heartfulness program is being held from 29th July 2021 – 17th August 2021, every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. “Through this program, we are trying to sow the seeds of creativity, joy, and compassion in these young hearts so they can be nurtured to become balanced, confident young adults. We need to listen to our kids, address their fears & concerns, let them know they are not alone. This program will allow them for an hour each, three days of the week for seven weeks to forget ‘COVID-19’ and love, laugh, and learn together. It will bring the smiles back on their faces, the sparkle in their eyes, and open their hearts to embrace that self-connection because “When one connects with oneself, one connects with the universe,”” said Savita Vaidya, Certified Heartfulness Trainer.
The super engaging Astrophysics & Robotics Camp is being conducted by Siju Philip, a Certified Aeronaut X Educator NASA – Texas State University, USA. Organized by Global Centre For Innovation & Entrepreneurship, this workshop will be held for 10 days with an hour of online activity conducted from 7th July to 25th July 2021. This workshop has been carefully designed to enhance the child’s knowledge in Science and Robotics and introduce them to Space Science with a certified professional in the field. This can be a great opening for those who want to start internships and possibly pursue a career in space studies. The kits required for this will be couriered to the students’ residences prior to the commencement of the workshop.
“We have all lived through a challenging year, especially children. Last summer total washout for all children everywhere with anxiety, confusion, fear, instability, and unfamiliarity gripping them in ways they may not even be able to understand or explain. The world needs evolved, empathetic, and emotionally intelligent global citizens that schools need to nurture, and we are trying to do just that through engaging new activities like the ones in this Summer Camp,” said Antony Koshy, Principal, GIIS Dubai.
GIIS Dubai is also conducting an interactive workshop – Logiathon. This will be conducted from 29th July 2021 onwards. This workshop will be conducted in collaboration with Logicology and has been specially designed to enable the kids to develop logical and mental skills that will keep them in good stead with the technology and the evolving ecosystem of tomorrow.
