June 23 is celebrated every year as International Olympic Day, to protect sports and health: hundreds of thousands of people – young and old – participate in sports activities, such as runs, exhibitions, music and educational seminars.
It is also a day to remind ourselves that the Olympics is an integral part of our lives, with the goal of promoting sports. On this day many sports and cultural events are attended by people from all over the world and from all walks of life.
Taurian World School too contributed to this heritage by conducting a high energy basketball match on the eve of 23rd June 2022 where the boarding students showed exciting displays of dribbling, passing and shooting.
Since its inception in the year 2015 by our Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, The International Day of Yoga is celebrated on 21st June every year. Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in our well-being.
8th International Yoga Day was celebrated at Taurian World School, Ranchi with great enthusiasm. The Parents, Students and Staff actively and devotedly demonstrated different yoga asanas instructed by our Yoga Teacher Mr. Rahul Kumar. The yoga teacher explained the importance of each asanas simultaneously.
Later another session of yoga was conducted for the students of Parasnath School, who visited our campus along with their teachers.
The celebration concluded with the speech by our Principal, Dr. Subhash KUmar. He encouraged the students to practice regular yoga to remain fit and improve concentration. Regular practice of yoga will surely help our students achieve a better life, physically, mentally and spiritually as well.

One of the greatest dilemmas that confront students after graduation is – what next? What are the courses that can offer better job opportunities? Very few students know their career choice by the time they graduate and are not clear on what they have to do. Most of them are susceptible to the advice of elders, friends, peers, career counselors or coaching class personnel.
As part of our growing effort to clear the doubts and prepare all our students for successful futures, a second session on “Students’ Dilemma in Choosing the Right Career Path” was held today in the school. Mr. Satwant Singh Bagga, National Sales Head in Sinsan Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd ( Pune), graced the occasion with his presence. Mr. Bagga has a rich experience of 28 years in the Pharmaceuticals Industry apart from being an expertise in Corporate Management , Team Building , Leadership , Professional Behavior and Ethics , Lifestyle Modification.
The session began with a spellbound Raga “Tu Hi Re” by our Musical Team. Our Counselor Mrs. Komal Kriti then enlightened the students with the kind of courses and various career options after they completed their schooling. She spoke about the myriad academic programs offered in every stream which have an astonishing range of flexible options to select from. which will allow the students to pursue careers in their desired fields.
Important part of the session was the Interactive Workshop by Mr. Bagga where he went beyond what Mrs. Komal had said. He emphasized that Academic achievements are important but one needs to have certain range of skills that need to be developed in order to translate those achievements into a successful career. He gave live examples of himself on how he has chosen his career path, the problems he faced, his passions and the balanced life he is now living.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and learnt a lot from him.
Through these past weeks, learners of Grade 5 have been delving into the issue How technology has changed overtime?
To explore and understand the concept of change, students observed various images depicting old/new technology. They summarized their observation using the strategy- One line Summarizer.
In Mathematics, learners have been investigating the concept of rounding numbers based on their value. To visualize and understand the concept of rounding, students used the Ganit mala.
Our students of the primary section began their learning of ‘Agri-Integrated learning’ by planting a new plant. They immensely enjoyed participating in the activity, Mr. Kashinath Guchait (school's head gardener) demonstrated to them how the soil is prepped for planting and how the seed is sowed.
Gardening is an effective way to develop students' motor skills and enhance their focus and memory.
During these lessons, students will gradually explore the world around them; understanding the basics of gardening, planting, farming and agricultural practices.
