The primary aim of this committee is to inculcate in students a sense of belonging and responsibility toward the larger community. We want our students to grow into sensitive and socially responsible adults who care for the wellbeing of others just as they want the best for themselves. This committee organizes a range of activities – like relevant excursions and visits to schools for the differently abled, hospitals, home for the elderly, medical camps, health awareness camps, blood donation camps, etc. By
participating in these activities students learn the importance of spending time with vulnerable or less privileged groups. They build loving relationships with members of these groups, gain new insights into their unique challenges, and experience firsthand that even small gestures go a long way in soothing and supporting community members.
This committee organizes a range of workshops for students as well as parents to educate them on several issues related to legal rights as well as duties of citizens. Students learn about issues like cybercrime, challenges of social media, gender sensitivity, bullying, etc. and the legal protections available to individuals in the Indian Penal code. One of the primary aims of community engagement activities is to reach out to under-privileged segments of the society and this committee too undertakes several activities that help inculcate inclusivity as a value.
We live in a democratic country and participate actively in elections to exercise our democratic rights. The Electoral Literacy Committee conducts workshops for students to make them aware of these rights as well as about what the democratic process is; and, the role of each individual in building and nurturing an inclusive and equitable society. The committee also ensures that all students who are eligible to vote are registered with the Election Commission of India and that their names figure in the voter list.
