ONE NATION READING TOGETHER 2015

Our school participated in ‘One Nation reading together’  event organized by Scholastic India on 27th November Friday, where the students from different schools of India took pledge to read books regularly.

At 12 noon the bell rang to mark the beginning of the reading session.

The students along with their teachers as well as the administrative staff were all seen reading at the same time for 30 minutes.

The endeavour was to encourage and inculcate the habit of reading in everyone.

The entire event turned out to be a great literary affair, with students getting a new perspective on books.

English Alphabets

Prachi – It was a wonderful experience. Lalita didi seemed very happy to learn everything. When she told us that everyone in her family were educated except her, she felt sad. She is very sincere and has promised to practice counting, Hindi alphabets & her name.

Muskaan – It was a pleasure teaching Lalita didi. She discussed her family problems and how she felt left out as she was the only one who was not educated in her family. After teaching her, the smile that she had on her face was wonderful. She promised to take out 10 minutes from her daily work to practice counting and the Hindi alphabets.

Ishita & Shipra – We helped Seema didi today. She knows basic English/Hindi & Maths. She could not recognize small letters or write them, so we helped her with the same. After today, we are hoping for an improvement.

Dhruv –I taught Suresh bhayiya the alphabet today. He knew how to form the letters very well but was not able to put them in order. I showed him how to do it and he learnt it in 20 minutes. It was a pleasure to see the potential hidden behind that weary face. He showed a lot of dedication and sincerity towards his work and I am sure that after a few weeks, he will be able to read and write independently.

Mehr & Namisha – It was an absolutely amazing feeling to teach Hemlata didi. We found out that she had studied till class 9th, but she had forgotten most of what she learnt. We taught her how to write the names of months (in English), how to sign, how to write her address & her children’s & husband’s name. We became very emotionally attached to her during this time. We found out more & more about her life. Thank you Principal Sir, Vice Principal ma’am, Prabhjot ma’am, Gurpreet ma’am, Ashima ma’am for this wonderful opportunity.image (2)image1
