Jamshedpur : While Children’s Day is celebrated all over the country with much fun, frolic and fanfare, the activities of some schools in the city remind us of another reason to celebrate the occasion – the limitless potential possessed by children to do good.
City schools have begun the trend of teaching their students social responsibility through programmes that give students a first hand look into the lives of the needy and underprivileged, and allow them to help bring about a positive change. To celebrate Children’s Day with a difference, Loyola School organised a carnival today at the school premises.
Various stalls of food items and fun games were put up by enthusiastic teachers. It was a festive atmosphere with children accompanied by their parents, participating in various activities. The idea was to look beyond the curriculum and celebrate their individuality.
“There were even occasions when the children saw the requirements at the sites they visited and raised money. There are also plans to deliver a presentation on the importance of basic hygiene on their future visits,” says a teacher.
These are just a few of the efforts being undertaken by the aforementioned schools and many others in the city to render some help to those in need, demonstrating that bringing up children with strong morals and values is as important a part of education as the content of their textbooks.
SDSM School for Excellence celebrated with great joy and pomp with difference in SDSM School for Excellence. The day started with the assembly in which essence of all religions was conveyed by different teachers.
