“Its great not only talking about community service in theory but actually doing it”
Volunteering is an essential part of preparing students to “take responsibility as open minded, principled citizens in a global community.” While performing community service, children have the opportunity to see first-hand just how much their work can have an impact in the society.
In order to inculcate the moral values like sharing, caring, patience, empathy and interact with people who have vastly different backgrounds, RISY Indian Section has organized community service activity to donate “Winter cloths” to the cleaners and labours working in Royal Commission on Monday, 22 January, 2018, by Grade IV students during school hours.
A total of 23 students participated, some helped in packing while the rest went with the teacher in charge for distribution.
Students were elated, felt proud and got immense satisfaction, with the service, when they saw the smile and thankfulness on the face of the needy people after receiving the parcels. Most of students requested to arrange such services more in the future.
Next day, the students submitted the report to their teacher narrating their experience about the community service.
