Promoting well-being in school

Mental health is beyond how we feel think and act. It is a state of well-being where people can meet their learning potential, cope with normal stresses, and are connected to community and their friends. For most people, mental health issues emerge when they are young- half of all mental disorders emerge by the time people are 14 years old and three-quarters by 25 years old -the same period when most people are in education (Adolescent mental health, World Health Organization, 2021). Reports show that nearly 60% of school students take stress when studying and over 60% of girls and 40% of boys reported to feeling anxious about their exams at school, even when they are well prepared.

Pupils’ accomplishments in and outside school depend upon their holistic well-being which has many aspects. Improving students’ mental health in schools requires a whole-school approach, involving students, teachers, parents, school leadership, and curriculum.

The Fashion Studies Exhibition – Miraki

That’s exactly what reflected at the Fashion Studies exhibition ‘Meraki’ where the CBSE Grade 12 students of Fashion Studies presented their designs inspired by the ancient civilisations of the world with a modern touch into their ensembles.

The Meraki showcase was a culmination of a year-long journey into the fascinating world of fashion. The students worked tirelessly over a span of three weeks to bring this unique exhibition to life with an aim to inspire and encourage students to discover and express their inner creativity.

Groups of four students each took up the challenge of designing a garment inspired by the ancient civilisations of the world (Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Harappan) whilst also incorporating a modern touch into their ensembles. Detailed presentations from the teams outlining the creative process and research invested in designing their respective dresses and accompanying accessories drew the attention of parents, teachers and students alike. In addition to the exceptional outfits, products such as embroidered masks and tie and dye T-shirts from the students’ portfolios were put on display for the audience to appreciate.

Overall, Meraki proved to be a wholesome representation of the skills acquired by Fashion Studies students over the past year and the consistent support received from their teacher, Mrs. Kirti Mishra,
