‘Prayas – a try’ Organized Special Classes for Economically Weaker Sections
‘Prayas –a try’ organized special classes for children from nearby slum areas in school premises to give them a first hand experience of school life. Other than basic literacy, a special stress was laid on personal hygiene, good habits and mannerisms. Interesting activities related to basic English Language, Art, Craft, Sports and Music were carried out. However, what engaged the little ones the most was, the puppet show which was organized for their entertainment.
Puppet show and moral education classes were taken care of by Ms. Anuradha Rance, Ms. Ritu Gupta and Ms. Manpreet Kour, Ms. Mukti and Ms. Manpreet took Music and Spoken English classes, respectively. The children were from different age groups i.e. from 3-13 yrs. But teachers gave their best to cater to all age groups, accordingly.
Appreciating the effort of the teachers, Headmistress Ms. Ruchi Chabra encouraged them to take this project further in one way or the other, as she remarked that “it is our social and moral responsibility to take care of these children.”
