School stress is prevalent in students of all age groups. Though school years are the most formative years of one’s life, unfortunately, even these years are not free of stress. Students feel stress due to parental pressure to perform well in school, pressure from the teachers, pressure from the competition from peers, and several other factors.
Every student tries to cope with the stress, but if they get some guidance at the right time, it can prevent a lot of damage at the psychological and physical levels. Students are young, and they are at an age where they are still learning a lot of things, so we must teach them the stress-coping mechanism. At Mount Litera, which is one of the best schools in Whitefield, we focus on creating a stress-free environment where a child wants to come and learn with deep interest and focus.
Our talented musicians recently delighted family, friends and teachers with a range of seasonal concerts. Our Secondary School recital saw students, including the Jazz Band and High School Singers, perform various Christmas numbers to a full theatre, including ‘Silent Night’, ‘Here comes Santa Claus’ and a very jazzy ‘Jingle Bells’. Wearing festive costumes for an extravaganza of performances, a second concert of ‘Holiday Pops’ saw musicians from across the school don reindeer antlers, elf hats and tinsel!
These two fantastic events are always a highlight of our festive calendar. Our students performed brilliantly and we hope the audiences enjoyed the recitals, as well as our festive efforts!
DUCK week at Lower School!
The multi-group recital included jolly renditions from the Lower School and Middle School choirs, the Gong Gang, Marimbas, Ukestra, and the Jazz Couriers. Our wonderful Lower School students were recently visited by three charity representatives after they raised over £1,500 for charitable causes. As part of their annual DUCK week (Developing, Understanding, Caring and Kindness), each year group decided on a different fundraising method, organising activities from discos and games, to face painting and volunteering.
SPARKS, a children’s medical research charity; and the Donald Sutherland Wildlife Foundation as their chosen charities. Following the students’ fundraising, representatives from each charity attended a specially planned assembly to talk about their charities and how the funds raised would help support their causes.
