Yesterday, the students of MYP 1 went to Anubhuti Seva Sansthan where the special children are given shelter and given education as per their abilities. We went there with the purpose of donating clothes which were collected for them, and to teach them about cleanliness and handwashing as it was our service activity.
We bonded well with the students there. We got to learn things from them and even taught them. The learner profile that I developed was caring and the ATL skill that I developed was self-management skills. My strength was that I encouraged the students at the orphanage. My weakness was that I didn’t communicate well with them.
Our challenge was to make members of our society aware of cleanliness and handwashing which we did very nicely with collaborative skills and teamwork. So, the experience of the orphanage was amazing. I enjoyed a lot and got to know many things. My conclusion is that we are blessed to be privileged and have all of our senses.
