Visit to Old Age Home - (13 July 2013)
SMS Girls School - Visit to Old Age Home : Click to Enlarge‘What is the worst of woes that wait on age?



What stamps the wrinkle deeper on the brow?



To view each loved one blotted from life's page,



And be alone on earth, as I am now."



These are lines said by a wise man… and were reflected on the faces of the senior citizens of SaiVridh Ashram, which was visited by the students of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School on 13 July 2013. The students noticed that the elderly there are ALONE because they have either lost all their loved ones or have been abandoned by them. This realisation brought tears to their eyes yet they hid them with their smiles not wishing to de-motivate their new friends. The girls had taken with them a few snacks such as biscuits and frooties contributed by the VIII standard of the school as tokens of love. This little treat brought smiles on everyone’s face. Our girls interacted with their new friends for over two hours who shared with them their life experiences. This interaction enabled the girls to add to their knowledge and gave great pleasure to the elderly. The girls realised that the best gift that we can give to anyone is our time. When it was time for the girls to leave the Old Age Home, our girls bid goodbye to their dear friends comforted with the knowledge that they had formed a family of their own at their new home-they realised that the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content.

An opportunity was given to the students of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School to visit ‘Goonj (an NGO)’ with their teachers. There they learnt about some of the initiatives taken by the members of Goonj in favour of the poor and needy. Some of their initiatives are: SCHOOL TO SCHOOL (S2S), RAHAT, NOT JUST A PIECE OF CLOTH and CLOTHES FOR WORK. Goonj is not simply into collection & distribution of clothes rather it is turning old material into a huge development resource like spinning gold from waste. It is an NGO, a voice; an effort that provides amenities for India’s so called impoverished millions. It distributes the right thing to the suitable person in need. This visit further sensitized the students towards the poor and made a heartfelt appeal to them to be mindful of the unused/surplus clothing taking space in their closet right now which could be a treasure for someone in need. They pledged to contribute as many things as possible to Goonj and also create awareness about its initiatives.

Look at the sky, then around the trees… and what you’ll see is beauty all over.

Now, look at the ground and the surroundings around… and what you’ll see is litter all over.

SMS, Girls School, Meera Bagh - Anti Littering Rally : Click to EnlargeMarket places, local parks, bus stands or even outside your own home- there isn’t a single place left that one could call spotless. Are we so addicted to littering around that it’s become our everyday routine? Our ostentatious attitude of practising cleanliness under the garb of littering is what characterizes most of us today.

Littering is now a common problem faced throughout the country. Although each one of us wants to live in a healthy and clean environment, the present scenario reflects a contrasting picture. Therefore, the students of classes VII and VIII of St. Mark's Girls Sr. Sec. School took an initiative towards a cleaner Delhi and took out a rally with an aim to spread awareness among people about the ill-effects of littering on the 17th of April, 2013 near GH-5, GH-6 and GH-7 in Paschim Vihar. The students used placards that displayed inspiring slogans like "DON'T THROW IT AWAY, IT CAN BE USED IN SOME OTHER WAY", "CLEAN AND GREEN IS OUR FUTURE DREAM", "LOOK AROUND WALK AROUND, BREATHE CLEAN AIR, DON'T LITTER THE GROUND", etc to discourage people from littering the roads. Moreover, they encouraged the students of their school to keep the roads clean by refraining from littering the streets as that spoils the beauty of our country.

An interactive session on community service was organized in our school by Mr. Gurpreet, the resource person associated with the 2012 Pramerica spirit of community awards.

Pratibimb (2010)
Pratibimb is an initiative taken by the NGO, 'GOONJ', to get the urban children to learn important things about rural India-the India they have never seen. A team of 8 students from the school participated in a two-day interactive programme organized by Goonj at Gandhi Smriti and Darshan Smriti near Rajghat in New Delhi.

They were accompanied by their teachers Ms. Charu Kohli and Ms. Jyoti Gulati. On the first day, the children of rural and urban schools sat in mixed group. Group exercises and games helped to break the ice and soon the students started conversing like old friends. There were about three hundred children from Assam, Bihar, Bengal, Kerala, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Uttranchal, Orissa, Ahmedabad and New Delhi. The students from rural India presented folk dances and songs and got a roaring response from the audience. The students analysed common problems faced by rural and urban India. It involved presentations given by a group comprising of rural and urban children. The students of our school together with the students of Gram Vikas Parishad, Bihar prepared a small skit depicting the practice of child labour in some parts of India for which they bagged the first position. The event proved to be a valuable experience for the students that opened new vistas of knowledge.
