Under the aegis of ISA, the project taken up was RULES-RULES-RULES in which various topics were assigned to class VI and VII on which they have to do their research work, write reports, collaborate with other schools across the globe and finally conclude their study. Under this activity, the students were asked to compose a Rap on Rules. The students explored their inner musicians and came up with brilliantly self composed Raps based on RULES. There were more than 40 groups that fought the battle of rap and shortlisted to 12 for final competition and that too quite brilliantly. They talked about various kinds of rules from home to school to government to public and transport, all the aspects were lyrically presented.
Manav Sthali School, R-Block, New Rajender Nagar, New Delhi organized “RAP ON RULES” on 27 th Oct 2016, in the school auditorium under ISA activity “RULES-RULES-RULES”.
