May 2019 to July 2019[edit]

In the month of May 2019 some of the students has started showing interest in Wiki Projects. So they wanted to work on Wiki Projects but because of lack of internet facility, could not do anything online. Students started getting to know that how and why Wikipedia started, what was the purpose behind this project, what is Open Source Knowledge etc. So they were involved in these kind of offline Wiki activities.

In the month of June there was summer vacation in school. After the vacations end we got the Internet connection and students begin to work on Punjabi Wikisource. In the month of July we completed our first audiobook. We have taken this book from Punjabi Wikisource and whole book has been published in audio format.

In the end of July, Two Schools (SEABA Public School and SD Public School) where Punjabi Wikimedians (Jagseer S Sidhu and Manavpreet Kaur) are running the Education Programs had been invited to by Head, Department of Anatomy, PGIMER, Chandigarh to the Scientific Program of 12th I.J.

August 2019 to December 2019[edit]

Students had exams in the month of August so there was no activity in this month. In the month of September and October students were preparing for their Mid Term exams and i was absent for two weeks for my personal work but in these months school had started a new program for students called Employability Skills e-learning. The program included as a common core of study across all trades to empower students for work life. As being Wikimedian-in-residence school management has chosen me to lead this project and teach students the skills they need in their social life.

In the month of November students of SEABA International Public School (India) wrote about Armenia cuisine, culture, attire, movies and actors. The edit-a-thons are part of Armenian-Indian collaboration gained during Wikimania 2019, between the representative of Punjabi wiki community, educational programs coordinator Manavpreet Kaur and the representative of Armenian wiki community, coordinator of Karvachar Wikiclub Tamara Grigoryan.
