SEWA - COMMUNITY SERVICE PROGRAMME; CLASSES X AND XII (MARCH 25 TO 27, 2019)
 

Community Service Programme in GDGPS, Sector 48, Gurugram is distinguished by three outstanding hallmarks – care, compassion and conviction, covering work experience, internship and volunteer work that support students in both their career development as well as in building up their social skills.  This type of experiential learning specially designed in-house under the visionary guidance of the school principal, Ms. Anuradha Handa has greatly empowered the school students and endowed them with life skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to be successful in both the workplace and larger community. 

GDGPS does not believe in extending token ‘lip service’ to community activities but carries out purposeful service that allows its students to make meaningful contributions in alleviating the lot of the deprived sections of the society. Thus, the school gave its own unique dimensions to SEWA (Social Empowerment through Work Education and Action), an integral component of HPE (Health and Physical Education) introduced by CBSE a few years back. The senior students of X ad XII were productively engaged in community service which involved volunteer work with underprivileged children and senior citizens. The responsible and sensitized Goenkan students made visits to The Wingspan School, Maruti Kunj, Haryana, Shantiniketan (Fatehpur) and Guru Vishram Vridh Ashram, Badarpur, New Delhi. They went laden not only with thoughtfully prepared gifts but also with generosity of spirit and the zeal to ‘make a difference’ in the lives of the inmates of the old age home and Help Age run school. They spent time with the elderly members lending a patient ear to their life stories and bringing cheer in their daily routine with their youthful high spirits. Through nukkad natak, interactive games, counselling sessions and rapport building activities, they were successful in  spreading awareness among the girl students regarding health, adolescent issues, sanitation, civic habits and safety.


Just like charity, community service too begins at home. This proved true when the civic-minded youngsters organized Sports Day for the children of the school’s support staff. From playing with them to having a painting contest to mingling freely with them to giving each one a sensitively chosen gift – the Goenkan students proved their commitment and genuine involvement in ‘contributing their bit’ through social and community service activities. 

The hugely successful Sewa Programme run by GDGPS over three days showed that the students have already begun fulfilling their civic obligation of giving back to the community and society that they belong to.
