The Joy of Giving week is about to start on 1st June and will go on till 6th June. It’s just Friday, 29th May and the response is overwhelming. Many students and parents turned up to donate various different items for the less fortunate. From pulses and rice to clothes and soaps, there were a lot of cheerful givers today.

On Friday, during the break, there was a surprise dance performance. The dance reminded the students that a smile goes a long way and to always be happy and keep smiling. After the performance a short video about the students’ visit to the houses of the less privileges people was shown. The video encouraged the students to be a part of the event and to make someone’s wish come true.

The thankful tree was put up at the entrance on Friday. The leaves were added on Saturday. These leaves contain special messages from almost all the students. They wrote about the things that they are thankful for.

We hope that this event – The Joy of Giving –  will make us realise how fortunate we are.

To Love Ourselves and to Love Those Around Us.
