SCSO OF SAUPIN’S SCHOOL ,MOHALI VISITED OLD AGE HOME

Saupin Community Service Organization of Saupin’s School, Mohali visited Old Age Home Sector-15. It  is a multi-residence housing facility intended for senior citizens. Old age homes are meant for senior citizens who are unable to stay with their families or are destitute. The inmates of the Old Age Home were in for a pleasant surprise when children from Saupin’s School, Mohali called on them and the inmates welcomed them with bright smiles.

Children presented few peppy songs and dances for them to break the monotony of their daily dull routine. The inmates also participated enthusiastically in the dances and enjoyed the songs some adding their own. The children carried hampers for all the inmates which contained all the essential like toiletries, biscuits, little containers for them and few other articles of daily use. It was sheer pleasure to see those dull eyes go bright in the presence of children and their laughter.

The place is of course is like a home where the inmates get all the facilities for a routine living, like food, clothing, and shelter.All these necessities are well looked after but, the much-needed love, and care of loved ones is of course sadly missing in their life and this visit was an attempt to evoke empathy in children for the old people and provide some solace to the hearts of old people. The stories of almost all the old people are the same and very dismal. Children were filled with the feeling of compassion, love and care for the elderly people . SCSO Mohali has always advocated social awareness and has endeavoured to inculcate in children sense of compassion, responsibility and the feeling of social connectedness that appears to be waning in our increasingly segmented society. The Headmistress Mrs Goldie Kapany strongly advocates children’s participation in community services as it helps to forge bond with members of the community and a subsequent desire to “ give back” to the communities from which they come.

A salad is a healthy option for any time of the day and is perfect for summertime meals and cook-outs.

Students of Classes IV and V participated in the activity with lot of enthusiasm and displayed their culinary skill. It was a treat to watch little ones chopping, dicing and easily mixing and matching the fruits and vegetables of their choice, seasoning with some spices and dressings. They were seen adding a variety of ingredients like bell peppers, carrot, cucumbers, pomegranate seeds, mozzarella, cheese, figs, broccoli and apples in their salads. Some of them even added extra proteins with chopped pieces of white meat and tofu. Peanuts, almonds, pistachios added a popping crunch. They were eagerly explaining the ingredients of their salad and its nutritional value too.

PRE-PRIMARY WING VISITED STATE LIBRARY,SECTOR 34 CHANDIGARH

The Pre-Primary wing of Saupin’s School, Mohali visited the State Library in sector-34 on Friday. Libraries are only next in importance to schools, colleges and universities as means of educating the public. A library is a store-house of books of all kinds and on all subjects under the sun.To those who are vociferous book readers, a library is all the more useful.

Going to the school library is their weekly routine but this was an altogether different experience for them to see. They were amazed to see such a vast collection of books. They were told about the importance of books and library. They were told about other libraries present in the city.

In this era of technology and gadgets where every kid is busy with tabs and gizmos, it was an effort to expose Saupin’s kids to the joy of reading. Many predict that the digital age will wipe public bookshelves clean, and permanently end the centuries-old era of libraries. As libraries’ relevance comes into question, it faces an existential crisis at a time when students need them the most. Despite their perceived obsolescence in the digital age, both libraries are irreplaceable. The Headmistress Mrs. Goldie Kapany encourages such endeavours to promote book reading because these Generation-Z kids tend to find all their solutions on Google and are moving away from the concept that books are the best friend.

CAR WASH ACTIVITY BY PRE-PRIMARY WING

The pre-primary wing of Saupin’s School, Mohali organized a car wash activity for the kids in the school premises as a part of the self help skills they learn. .

Having a look at the interiors, the tiny tots developed their linguistic and mathematical skills as they learnt new vocabulary like steering wheel, dashboard etc and the concept of numbers while performing the activity . Most of them came equipped with gloves to protect their hands as they dusted, cleaned and washed the car with car wash and sponges. They used buckets instead of hose pipes to conserve water. Later they waxed the car to make it shine. The kids exchanged their knowledge about different makes of the cars and the parts of a car/van. They sang the theme oriented poems to make the activity more interesting. It was fun to watch the little ones wiggle and crawl to give their best. After this activity they are all set to assist their parents at home. It was indeed an educative and fun filled activity.
