History and Geography have very close ties. In fact, it would be practically impossible to study; certain branches of history without the knowledge of geography e.g. the diplomatic or military history cannot be followed without necessary geographical knowledge of the region. Geography is one of the eyes of history, the other eye being chronology. Time and space factors give history its correct perspective.
With this thought in mind ‘History Geography Day’ was celebrated on 28th January, 2022 where students showcase their skills as young historians and geographers.
The students of DPGA, along with the teachers, celebrated this day with great enthusiasm and pomp. The students focused on topics like Stone Age, Our Neighbourhood, Our Heritage, Our Freedom Struggle, Our Environment, Continent – South America, Weather and Seasons, Four Domains and many more. The students presented these topics in the form of role plays, dances, posters, models, dress ups and project presentations.
This event provided various opportunities to develop the children’s social, cultural and moral values in different fields of History and Geography. The event was a great success.

History is the study of past. Studying History is important because it allows us to see societal patterns. … As the saying goes “those who are unfamiliar with their History, are bound to repeat it”. Studying History allows us to build on our accomplishments and learn from our mistakes.
Geography is the study of places on Earth and their relationship with each other. Often the study of geography begins with one’s home community and expands as a person gains greater experience. Thus, geography provides a conceptual link for children between home, school, and the world beyond.
On 14th March, 2019, Thursday, we celebrated the History / Geography day at Dr. Pillai Global Academy for the Primary section. Each class selected one topic from their curriculum.
They decorated the classrooms according to their topic and children had dressed up according to the requirement of the topic as per their teacher’s instructions. It was based on student’s ideas for which they have collaboratively worked together.
In this way, the information allowed the students to integrate multiple concepts from humanities and social science, and apply critical thinking to deal with current issues at the local, national, and international level.
