161. Artwork

There are researchers who believe  that engagement with art increases   happiness, confidence, self-esteem and reduces stress and social isolation. With separate  sessions for Theatre, Puppetry, Painting, Pottery and Sculpture, the recently concluded Art and Drama workshop for the third semester BEd students   of IASE was organized in such a way that it  lends scope for both creative imagination and expression. In fact, the feedback received from the  trainees after the workshop  made us realize that  the time has indeed come for switching  from STEM to STEAM. 

Snapshots  from the Workshop:

160.Christmas Celebration

A quote on Christmas reads:
“The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world's busy life and become more interested in people than in things.” – Thomas S. Monson

Every year the students of  IASE celebrate Christmas just before college closes for vacation. But this year  semester-end examinations  and workshops  kept them all occupied...There was however one group to celebrate...the participants of courses offered by the ASAP Centre attached to the college.
