हिंदी विश्व की प्राचीन, समृद्ध और सरल भाषा है |
हिंदी भारत ही नहीं बल्कि दुनिया के कई देशों में बोली जाती है |
हिन्दी भारत में सर्वाधिक बोली जाने वाली भाषा है| यही वजह है कि राष्ट्रपिता महात्मा गांधीजी ने हिन्दी को जनमानस की भाषा कहा था |
बोलते वक्त हम ज्यादातर अंग्रेजी भाषा के शब्दों का इस्तेमाल करते है, और तो और हिन्दी के कई शब्द चलन से ही हट गए |ऐसे में हिन्दी दिवस को मनाना जरूरी है,
ताकि लोगों को यह याद रहे कि हिन्दी हमारी राजभाषा है|
ऐसे मे हिन्दी भाषा के महत्व को समझाने के लिए सी. एम. इंटरनॅशनल विद्यालय में हिन्दी सप्ताह ९ से १३ सितंबर तक मनाया गया |
हिन्दी दिवस के मौके पर कई कार्यक्रमों का आयोजन किया गया जैसे कविता स्पर्धा, नुक्कड़ नाटक, लेखन स्पर्धा और कवि सम्मेलन|
विद्यार्थियों ने उत्साह से उसमे भाग लिया और हिन्दी भाषा के महत्व को भी समझा | हिन्दी दिवस के अवसर पर प्रमुख अतिथि और प्रधानाचार्या जी के द्वारा छात्रों को प्रमाणपत्र देकर प्रोत्साहित किया गया

International Literacy Day
Literacy is a human right, a tool of personal empowerment and a means for social and human development. Educational opportunities depend on literacy.
Literacy is at the heart of basic education for all, and essential for eradicating poverty, reducing child mortality, curbing population growth, achieving gender equality and ensuring sustainable development, peace and democracy.
A good quality basic education equips pupils with literacy skills for life and further learning; literate parents are more likely to send their children to school; literate people are better able to access continuing educational opportunities; and literate societies are better geared to meet pressing development .”

World environment day
World environment day is an opportunity for us to thank nature for giving us bountiful resources. We all are consumers. It’s high time that we become mindful consumer. On this environment day, thought provoking questions were asked to the students: Do we really need to wrap the gift with glossy, non- biodegradable gift wrap paper? After opening the gift it immediately goes into dustbin.
We visit many places. Do we respect these tourist destinations? Do we see to it that they remain as clean and beautiful as they were before? A message went to the students to be a mindful consumer.
Children made many things out of waste.
Demonstration of making natural floor cleaner was carried out with the help of citrus fruit peels, jaggery and water. We will be using it in school once it’s ready. CMIS takes pride in being an ambassador for environmental issues. Our secondary students did an activity of logo making and all the students enjoyed a gallery walk on this world environment day.
