sivananda visit our prefects

 

On Saturday 30th September, the boys from the Sivananda Home visited our school; we were waiting eagerly to meeting them again, wondering how many names we would remember from our visit to their home last year. The names came back quickly, but we were surprised that there some initial shyness and awkwardness on both sides. However, as we got on with the activities, everyone seemed to become more comfortable with each other.

The Secondary Prefects had organised various activities for both the boys and all the Prefects present. The highlight of the day was definitely the football between the boys and Prefects. Our skills were no match for theirs! They were very well-coordinated, talented players and had excellent communication between each other. Even though allowed us to try to score goals, they still beat us 4-0 and 4-1. The sportsmanship came to the fore when, after the first match where the boys had ruled the field, they came up with a request to mix the groups. That match was a little more balanced and taught us more humility. Chef Nages provided delicious vegetarian lunch on banana leaf. It took us some time to realise that such meals are best eaten with our fingers rather than with a spoon and a fork.

All of us shared our dream and then wrote it on our coloured palm-print. It helped us see that dreams and aspirations do not follow socio-economic backgrounds. We believe that all our dreams will become reality if we have the heart, drive and consistency.
