‘Call of the blue mountains’ is a collection of soulful music played on the violin by a budding violinist shaksham of Class IX sec B. The album produced and released by ABC Music has ten numbers based on the theme of nature. The album shows exquisite fusion of traditional raga music with modern day music like soft rock. The strings of the violin seems to fully echo the serenity and calm of the blue mountains of the Himalayas .The budding violinist has demonstrated extraordinary skill in playing the tunes set to different rhythms like kaherba, Dadra, waltz etc. The prelude and the interludes in each of the tunes are appropriate and commendable. The use of various tempos is remarkable. The fusion of folk song tunes of the Himalayan region with modern tunes is quite impressive. The music album is available in the library of our school. Price is Rs.100.
“E-learning: learning with fun” is a documentary film on e-learning scripted by Pryidarshini Mathur of Class XI Sec A. The ten minutes documentary film highlights the fun children experience in e- learning.
Priyadarshini Mathur shows how e-learning caters to the need of slow learners as well as smart learners. The documentary film employs interview method to bring home the fact that e-learning introduced in our school has made the class room an attractive place for the students. Students are able to learn contents of various subjects in tune with their learning style. The documentary film ,however, has few technical flaws in the use of special effects. There is a lack of synchronisation between the background music and the story line. However, as a debut documentary film of the budding film maker the film is worth viewing. The documentary film will be screened for the parents ,students and teachers of the school next Monday.
