SOCIAL SCIENCE EXHIBITION– 2018

Social Science Exhibition – 2018
The 27th of October 2018 proved to be a landmark event in the calendar of Lourdes Central School, with the
much-awaited Social Science Exhibition being flagged off.
It was an excellent venue for the students to showcase the extent of their knowledge of the subject, as well as
their abilities to research and explore the depths of the various intricacies of their respective topics.
The topics for the project were given to the students in the last week of September, and they were given
adequate time to prepare for the event. Their models were also considered as a part of their Subject
Enrichment Activity. The models were judged on the basis of Design and Layout, Content and Accuracy,
Artistic Skill, and Overall Presentation. The best three projects from each section were awarded Certificates
and Trophies.
The topic given to Class VI was “Landforms in India”. The students made expert use of thermocol and other
materials to artistically represent various Geographical landforms in India, ranging from Plateaus, deltas and
plains to Forests, Valleys and Deserts. The students displayed an astounding show of knowledge on each topic,
showing that they had moved much further than textbook knowledge.
The topic given to class VII was “Natural Vegetation and Wildlife, Exogenic and Endogenic Forces and
Transport & Communication”. The models constructed by the students of Class VII represented and reflected
the concepts taught to them in class, including the workings of various Geographical phenomena, mass
communication and transport. The students’ explanation and presentation again gave evidence of the depths
of knowledge which each student has visited for their individual projects.
The topic given to Class VIII was “Industries”. The pitfalls and benefits of this omnipresent process were
dutifully and systematically represented by the students’ models. Various charts were also prepared to better
illustrate the various processes involved. The different processes that came under the gambit of
‘Industrialisation’ like dairy products, refining of oil etc. were meticulously displayed.
The topic given to Class IX was “Disasters and Mitigation Techniques”. The students prepared projects
describing in detail the effects and consequences of various natural as well as artificial disasters, and included
the methods and techniques involved in preventing and mitigating these circumstances. The significance of
Safe Water was also reinforced by various natural filtration systems using different household materials.
Several innovative models were seen, some utilising truly ingenious methods, with students employing their
artistic skills to the maximum.
The topic given to Class X was “Money And Credit”. This was presented in the form of a written project. Each
student came up with a project filled to the brim with various facts and exquisite diagrams which mapped the
history of money and credit, all the way from the barter system to the role of banks in modern day economies.
The written projects were judged based on Content, Originality, Presentation and accuracy, coupled with a
VIVA for content assimilation.
The Social Science Exhibition – 2018 held in Lourdes Central School was thus a grand success with the support
of the Principal Rev. Fr Robert D’Souza, and teaching and non-teaching staff, thus proving to be an excellent
platform for the students to showcase their skills and hard work.
