It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.
May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the
betterment of mankind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.”
At Lotus Valley International SchoolGurugram, we make an earnest endeavour to build a culture which supports the belief that the finest way in which one can grow is by uplifting others. Taking these thoughts forward, the school has been organizing ‘Seva Mela-Learning and Earning for a Cause’ annually since 2016. The two long years of pandemic did not deter our spirits and this year witnessedthe ‘Seva Mela’ organized on 14thNovember 2022, to commemorate Children’s Day with a difference. The event also aimed at sparking the spirit of C.S.R.,C-Compassion, S-Service, R-Recharge in our learners, thus motivating them to work towards making the less privileged integrated, independent and inclusive members of the society.
The occasion was graced by our esteemed Chairperson Ms. Jaspreet Kaur,our revered Director- Principal, Ms. Anita Malhotra along with much-loved Vice-Principals Ms. Harvinder Kaur and Ms.RituJawa, teachers and Lovely students. The gathering was enlivened with the insightful address by Ms, Malhotra who appreciated the seamless collaborative partnership between learners, parents and the school.
It was indeed heartwarming to see enthusiastic parents, learners and teachers coming together in large numbers to express their support towards the noble cause.It was indeed a delight to see the School Greens beautifully lined up with colourful and attractive stalls. The whole atmosphere reverberated with gaiety and positivity as the learners found themselves singing, dancing and shuttling from one stall to another, while also learning the life skills of buying and selling in the process.
Students from Tamana School were an integral part of the Mela. Their stall was most certainly the highlight of the event, offering items such as stoles, coasters, mats, bags and accessories created by the specially-abled students. It was a privilege for the school to host an event as holistic as this where volunteers worked sincerely and donated their proceedings to the Cause.
The Mela concluded with a sense of fulfilment and gratification for one and all, and closed on a jubilant note ,witha promise to come back next year with more energy and vigour!
As someone has rightly remarked, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life bywhat we give”, Seva Mela was indeed one such opportunity that underscored the power of GIVING and contributing to the society.
‘How can we change the world? One act of kindness, at a time.’
WELL DONE LOTUSIANS!!
