Manav Rachna International School (MRIS), NOIDA organized ‘Santa for a Day’, an initiative for under privileged children to create awareness on importance of Eco-friendly environment
On 23rd December, Sunday, Manav Rachna International School (MRIS), Sector- 51-Noida organized ‘Santa for a Day’ campaign for the under privileged children, under a unique school initiative “Budding Champs”, today at Windsor Park, Vaibhav Khand, Indrapuram. More than 50 children of age 2 to 11 yrs participated in activities like fancy dress competition, painting/coloring competitions and Best out of Waste’ to make small and simple models using waste items. Society children got an opportunity to mentor the under privileged children and shared some basic knowledge and values. It made their day special to be a part of such event and boosted their morale which they truly deserved on this special Christmas eve.
The main aim of this initiative was to help children understand the importance of Eco-friendly environment and recycling of wastes. Speaking on the occasion, Mrs. Sunanda Grover, Principal, MRIS Sec-51, NOIDA said, “This initiative is a part of our commitment to educate the under privileged section of the society”. “We are lucky that we are able to reach out to weaker section of the society and spread little happiness on the eve of Christmas”, she added. There were interactive sessions to teach children ways to identify and segregate bio-degradable items from the waste through a relay race with hurdles. Winners were judged on speed and the correct identification and collection of the items in their respective bags.
Each one teach one was the main idea behind this program wherein the underprivileged children were guided to perform various activities along with the Society children. The parents of all the children were also invited to view the entire program and encourage their wards. The entire exercise was a grand success and proved to be an exciting experience for the children as well as their parents. There was a gathering of about 200 people in order to encourage children. “It was a refreshing initiative on a bright morning which was very entertaining for children”, said a nearby resident. “Any practical exercise clubbed with a game always works well for children as it can engage their interest. We are happy to be a part of this initiative taken up by Manav Rachna International School”, said another resident from Windsor Park.
