THE INTERNATIONAL AWARD FOR YOUNG PEOPLE (IAYP): IAYP was first introduced in the United Kingdom in 1956 as the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. The Award's concept is one of individual challenge, giving young people a balanced, non-competitive programme of voluntary activities, which encourage personal discovery and growth, self-reliance, perseverance, responsibility to themselves and service to their community.
INTERACT CLUB: Interact is a Rotary-sponsored service club for young people. Interact gives young people an opportunity to participate in fun, meaningful service projects. Along the way, Interactors develop their leadership skills and initiative while meeting new friends. Some of the social outreach programmes conducted are blood donation camps, books/stationery donation drive, clothes for underprivileged children drive, tree plantation drive, first aid boxes donation drives etc.
We hope to carry out various humanitarian services such as aiding flood relief through donations- monetary and in kind, raising awareness against social ills through street plays, initiating cleanliness drive and so on.
GO GREEN: With this idea in mind, students, guided by teachers, will be taking up various projects like rain water harvesting and paper recycling. Not only will there be a theoretical understanding of what these projects mean, but also a practical outcome to their learning through field visits, surveys and hands-on experiences. This collaborative ‘learning by doing’, one of the salient features of the CBSE curriculum, will help sharpen
students’ awareness of not only the local community but also the world at large.
