They visited a slum to educate children about children’s rights and the importance of World Children’s Day.
These students demonstrated global thinking and local action through street games and artwork based on the SDGs. A database has been developed on the technical needs of children of support staff. They found that girls’ education is largely lacking.
However, they also discovered that there was a girl who was academically brilliant but did not meet the technological needs. Later, she was given a laptop computer to continue her learning by these students.
“Looking at the contribution of older children, we as an elementary segment thought of celebrating Diwali with a difference, adding a little more sparkle to the lives of our helping and disadvantaged staff. We painted and decorated diyas and organized Tuck-Shop with some of this massive collection of diyas from our elementary students from grade one. The work of the tuck-shop went to the most disadvantaged. The other part of the diyas was shared between the sub-staff, which gave us immense pleasure to share and understand compassion as their eyes shone with joy, ”said Aneesa Arsheen, Cambridge Primary Literary Captain.
On this occasion, the student leadership team at Oakridge Bachupally School also launched a health ambassador program. This program aims to raise awareness, promote health and well-being, and pro-health behaviors among students as well as the school community. This involved students in experiential discussions, peer learning sessions, hands-on workshops and creative competitions, to make every Oakridger a health ambassador.
The Health Ambassadors program was launched with great enthusiasm and active participation in the presence of Brian Cooklin, Managing Director of NAE India, Baljeet Oberoi, Director, and the rest of the management team, as well as Kolli Sireesha, doctor at Udbhav Hospital who joined as Guest of Honor.
