“Gracious steps, nimble footed
The growing tots went on board.
Nature’s love God’s favourite
They have become.
They are special, they are kind
In God’s garden they are the blessed mind!!”
The primary students of Sapphire International School (Grades 2-5) were blessed to witness nature’s special grace. They got an opportunity to visit the special kids of St. Michael’s School for the blind.
It was a learning experience for the children as they could relate and connect with their current Unit of Inquiry – ‘Who We Are?’ Generally, the students learn from books but it was the first intimate experience for them this session.
As they have learnt about The Human Body, Parts of the Body and Sense Organs, they were able to relate it to their knowledge. Further, the students also learnt the moral value to be kind, thoughtful and benevolent. The students could acknowledge God’s grace bestowed upon them. They found themselves fortunate and blessed to have the benefits of proper functioning sense organs.
This trip also inculcated the sense of responsibility towards self and the underprivileged. It ran parallel with the school’s theme – ‘Responsibility’. The students of both the schools exchanged their talents by showcasing a wonderful medley followed by the on spot performance by our students.
Further, the students got a wonderful opportunity to see the Braille and got their names written in the Braille script. A few enthusiastic ones also tried their hand on pinning the Braille.
At the end our students showed their love and care by sharing cakes, chocolates, biscuits, fruit, juice and many more things. Above all the students had a gala time in sharing, spreading love and long lasting memories to relish and cherish.
“Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will!”
