Joy of giving Week (6th October 2018)




 

Mayor World School has always initiated several programs to uplift the deprived sections of society as a part of its corporate social responsibility. It has carried on with the culture of giving to the needy.

 

Continuing with this tradition, 1st to 6th October, 2018 was observed as the ‘Joy of Giving Week’. The students made altruistic donations during this week in terms of clothing, shoes, stationery items, newspapers, toiletries, gadgets and money. They were sensitized and encouraged to perform these acts of charity and be of great contribution to society. They also understood that the secret of being happy and content is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of every day.

 

 Different household items including dream-catcher, greeting cards, paintings and paper weights made out of old newspapers were sold during the parent teacher meet. The school also organised a book fair by Scholastic, from 4th to 6th October to encourage the students to enhance their reading skills and also to inculcate the habit of reading in them.

 

The Spreading Smiles Group of the School takes charge of distributing the collected articles and money from the ‘Joy of Giving Week’. The clothes, shoes and other collected items were sent to ‘Goonj’, an N.G.O. from Delhi.

 

As a major part of this ‘Daan Utsav’ and in the effort to maximize the contribution to the society, the management at Mayor World School organized a Blood Donation Camp on the 6th of October. It was arranged by Dr. Navdeep Kaur from Civil Hospital, Blood Bank, Jalandhar. Our honorable Vice Chairperson Mrs. Neerza Mayor and Principal Ms. Suman Rana were the first ones to donate blood. It was also the Parent teacher meeting day. All the teachers and parents participated with a festive fervor in the event. The School authorities appreciated and thanked the donors for this noble charity. Refreshments were given to all the donors.

 

The Principal encouraged and motivated the teachers and parents to participate enthusiastically in such noble acts of benevolence. She also mentioned that we should not hesitate in donating blood as our body systems have a natural mechanism to replenish blood.

 

 Mayor World School has set another benchmark with another successful completion of the’ Joy of giving Week’.
