NAMMA AUNTY, NAMMA UNCLE!!!
A Service Learning Project by the students of Grade 4B and 4C
Namma aunty Namma uncle was an initiative taken up by the students of grade 4. This initiative was aimed at inspiring young minds to come up with creative ways to develop a bond with the helper staff at school. The children split up into teams of two and spoke to their assigned helper staff about the problems they faced at school- and proposed creative ways to solve them. This not only empowered the children to think out-of-the-box, it also kindled a strong feeling of empathy towards our community helpers. The students gained many useful insights from interviewing their helper staff. Once they spoke to the staff, the students earnestly approached their parents and teachers, asking them to offer transport facility, health check-ups and even household appliances for their helper staff. One of the students also volunteered to teach them English. Although the institution couldn’t fulfill all these wishes, we were able to offer other solutions. The students collected funds and bought gifts for each of the helper staff at the school, and by the end of this project, the student’s relationship with their helper staff had completely changed.
“Pay it Forward in conjunction with teacher’s appreciation.”
Grade 5 An idea in conjunction with Teacher’s Appreciation.
Objective of the program
Teachers shape the minds of our children and build a relationship with them irrespective of the diverse array of needs and challenges the kids bring into the classroom, they find ways to motivate and engage them creating a positive and supportive learning environment. There are no words to express gratitude for all the hard work they do each day. And for this they truly need to be recognised, respected, valued and appreciated.
The “Pay it forward” initiative’ brought about enthusiasm and joy, directing the students focus on their teachers, by doing a random act of Kindness for them. This feeling of doing something for others, especially their teachers brought in an opportunity to showcase their talents in loom band making, paper quilling, and art and craft skills. The students made colourful loom bands in different patterns, cards and medallions with personalised messages, self-made colourful posters to promote the event and arranged for delectable snacks for the teachers luncheon programme. Every child got an opportunity to serve lunch, a drink and a rose to a teacher. We noticed that their eyes shone with happiness and cheerfulness, for they were doing an act, which they had never done before. The teachers enjoyed the lunch served and extended their thanks to the students and the parents. The students especially the girls out-rightly involved themselves in every respect and supported by buying the bands themselves. The medallions and cards were sold out in just a jiffy. One important thing which I noticed during the selling of bands was that students of grades 3, 4 and higher grades came up to buy badges, and there was a fairly large crowd. The students patiently waited to buy the stuff and handover the money, when could have easily slipped away without doing so. Seeing this personally gave me immense joy, because I think it is an important life skill learnt towards positive behaviour and for adaptation into today’s competitive world.
Grade 7 Visited Government Urdu Model Primary School, Library was set-up for the schools and Stationary items were distributed.
