World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is commemorated every year on 15th June to highlight one of the worst manifestations of ageism and inequality in our society - elder abuse. Elder Abuse is an act which causes harm to an older person and is carried out by someone they know and trust, such as a family member or friend. The abuse maybe physical, social, financial, psychological or sexual and can include mistreatment and neglect.

Students of St. Mark's Senior Secondary Public School, Janakpuri believe that this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it becomes even more necessary to shed light on reports of disproportionate cases of age based discrimination, stigmatization and neglect. Keeping this concern in their hearts, the students of class XI and XII organised two fun activities ‘THE WISE ADVICE FROM THE OAPs’ and ‘SNAP A SELFIE – STIR A CUPPA FOR SENIORS’, where they made an effort to spend some quality time with their grandparents and their friends. They made sure to make them feel loved, cared for and protected.

Manya of IX-C draws our attention to this very sensitive issue through her beautiful illustration...

Speak up! Speak out! Let them know that we care!

On the occasion of World Environment Day our primary students expressed in unique and creative ways the need to protect and conserve our environment - (5 June 2021)
With the Coronavirus outbreak and people being confined indoors, the Environment and Mother Earth seem to have benefitted slightly. In the absence of human activities, Nature is getting time to clean itself and reclaim its space.

On the occasion of World Environment Day, let us take a look at how our primary students have tried to spread the message to conserve environment in unique and creative ways.

Tree planting is a great way to increase the interest of the students in their surroundings and local environment. Students of Class I planted trees in their garden and it helped them understand the benefits of trees and foster a responsibility towards environment.

It is said that everything in the universe comprises of the five elements Akash (space), Agni (fire), Jal (water), Prithvi (earth) and Vayu(air). Dressed up as the five different elements, students of Class II told us what we can do to conserve them in order to protect and save our Mother Earth.

The concept of Rethink, Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, Repair and Refuse has been there for long, for people to understand its importance and start implementing the concept in their own small way possible.

Students of Class III took it upon themselves to explain the importance of each R, providing an ideal opportunity for them to understand that it is our collective responsibility to protect the environment.

Our environment defines our very existence and hence should get the highest priority in our lives. Since our sustenance is at stake; hence, we should be doing consistent sustainable work every day like composting and nurturing a small backyard garden. Students of Class IV explained in detail about how a compost pit can be made.

The eco-warriors of Class V - Bhakti, Shivansh and Pranshi creatively presented Puppet Shows on how to save energy and help our planet Earth.

It was a day full of learning and reflection.

Easter Celebrations - (April 2021)
“Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life." – Janine di Giovanni.

Jesus the son of God fulfilled a prophecy and through his death inspired faith in mankind to believe in an eternal life in heaven. This became the foundation of Christian faith.

Good Friday is observed by Christians all over the world as the day to remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ - "the day Jesus died on a cross to save humanity." Easter Sunday is the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and his ascension to Heaven.

Students of our school reaffirmed their faith in God's divine grace and on the occasion paid their respects by spreading the message of Jesus Christ and singing hallelujah with joy!

Contributions by Manal Goswami of VI E and Sirjin Saini of VIII D.

May this Easter inspire us all with new hope, happiness, prosperity, and abundance, all received through God’s divine grace.

Happy Easter!
