- Sevamritam– Students of Class 7,
along with their teachers Ms. Indira W., Ms. Shibina U., Ms. Neha W. and Ms.
Lata Y., visited Gurukrupa Old Age Home at Nerul and interacted with the elderly
women who stay at this facility. They first distributed Tilgul to mark the
auspicious Sankranthi and sought their blessings. Besides donating 150 kg of rice
which was collected during the month of December as part of Sevamritam Project,
the contribution towards Sealing of Desire by our students helped the school to
purchase 5 kg each of dal, poha, oil and sugar, and 1 kg of tea powder which
was handed over to the facility. Students also distributed packets of rusk,
Colgate toothpaste and bath soaps to each of the women. It was a touching
moment when the elderly women thanked the students for visiting them and
spending time with them. The memory of this visit will indeed stay in the
hearts of our students forever.
- Sealing of Desires – A total of Rs. 3415 was contributed towards Sealing of
Desire, which was used to purchase essential food items for Gurukrupa Old Age
Home. The class that contributed the most towards Sealing of Desire was 6C,
followed by 9B, 8B, 4B and 8C.
- Grihamritham – Amrita
Vidyalayam students presented an excellent skit called “Freedom From Anger” on January 29, 2020 to convey the message of maintaining
a joyful learning environment. The skit depicting situations faced by students
in their daily lives was presented in English, Hindi and Marathi. The students spoke about “walking away from
anger and calming down”, “listening to elders with a patient ear”, and “counting backwards”. They also stressed upon the benefits they
receive due to regular practice of yoga and meditation at Amrita Vidyalayam.
“Laughter Yoga” is also practiced during Mass PT which helps them to relieve
their stress. The students enjoyed the skit immensely as it helped to empower
them with Affective Skills. As they could see themselves in such situations, it
also helped to eradicate emotions like fear, humiliation and hurt, which would
in turn help them to overcome their own anger issues.
