PRLog - Mar. 15, 2012 - DELHI, India -- New Delhi, March 2012:- The Primary School Student Council initiated a dialogue with their peers through the school assemblies to make service to society a reality. After much thought and deliberation students chose to support the elderly in collaboration with the Help Age India Organization. Members of the Student Council visited the head office of Help Age India and met the CEO of the organization to learn about their activities and schemes to support the elderly. They then decided to ‘adopt’ a home of 22 members located a short distance away from the school.

Some students visited the old age home last November to spend time with the members. The members were then invited to attend the Christmas concert in t he school on the 16th of December.

Soon after the Christmas break and just two weeks into the second semester in January, the school and students celebrated their learning of the Humanities unit ‘Delhi-Then and Now’ by inviting parents to an ‘Open Afternoon’. A unique feature of this celebration was that every parent could take away a piece of Art done by their child by bartering it with an article of utility value to an elderly person. This project received tremendous response from the parents. Some of the collected articles were given to the members of the Home. The Help Age India organization helped our students deliver the surplus items, via their medical vans, to rural communities in the NCR region. The members of the Home and the villagers were very touched by this gesture of our students when they learnt about the process of organizing these gifts. The students have other events and fund raising activities in the calendar to support this initiative.
Mike Spencer, the Primary School Principal says “At a time when families are in danger of becoming increasingly fragmented, it is important for the youngest members of our society to appreciate the contribution that the older generation has made, and continues to make, to society. To see and hear about the interactions of our students with the residents of the Help Age hostel makes us all the more keen to support and be part of the excellent work that they do.”
