Save Children | Thumbs up for Computers | World Health Day
"Nobody can hurt me without my permission.." - Mahatma Gandhi
Save Children! Save their innocence!
The International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression was celebrated with great enthusiasm by students of Deepalaya School, Gusbethi on 4th June 2015. This day affirms the UN's commitment to protect the rights of children and commemorates the endless efforts made by millions of individuals and organizations to protect and preserve the rights of children.
Deepalaya School, Gusbethi observed this day and endeavored to make children aware what kind of risks they may face at various places and how to protect themselves. One of the school teachers Mr. Mohammad Din spoke about what is good touch and bad touch and how to oppose when someone tries to abuse them. Mr. John Rameson gave a long speech describing how Israel's act of aggression during the war affected numerous Palestine and Lebanese children and how the UN took note and decided to celebrate June 4 as International day of Innocent children Victims of Aggression.
The school teachers also prepared a few charts depicting how innocence is sacrificed at the altar of inhuman acts of violence and aggression. Mr. John Rameson, Mr. Mohammad Din, Mr. Haroon and Mrs. Poonam contributed to the day by reciting poems and a song relating to child right protection. At the end of the event, small gifts were given to six orphan children to boost their morale and to express social solidarity and interest in their life.
A big thumbs up for computers
Technology has its own impact on young minds. When we introduced smart boards in our schools, we could access the huge difference they had in the performance of our students. Somehow, our students at Deepalaya Learning Centre, Titron remained devoid of the benefits of technology due to various reasons. However, the gap has now been bridged, thanks to CAIT - Computer Learning Program, which is at a small distance from the main school. The organizers have decided to give free lessons to our students every Wednesday starting 6th May, 2015. Students were very excited on the first day as some of them saw a computer for the first time in their lives. Some had great difficulty in finding alphabets on the keyboards. It was wonderful to see them holding a mouse in one hand and typing their names with the other. Who knows one day, these budding students would grow up to be computer software engineers, hardware experts and web designers.
Shake, Shake, Shake on this World Health Day!
It was first full week of April. As we braced up for the new session 2015-16, we decided to give a big boost to our students and teachers. Thanks toOriflame's wellness team as they gave an extended working session on yoga, Aerobics, health and nutrition. A net ball match was also organized between the school's green and the orange team. Yes, there were some volunteers from Oriflame too, who tried their hand on the ball. Albeit, the luck was with the green team who clinched the ball with 27 points!
The session was part of Oriflame's wellness movement, which gave the necessary momentum to our students, who enjoyed the day thoroughly followed by a nutrishake, a flavour that must have lingered on their taste buds at least for some time. At the end of the day it was only good health that we talked about on this world health day.
