Vice Principal's Message...

 

        It is no secret that community service is an important aspect of any student’s overall performance. A significant community service is excellent not just for the personal growth and development of the sensibilities of a young student but also providing material for interviews down the line. The violence of storm that lashed chennai was very real . Chennai and parts of coastal Tamil Nadu faced the brunt of nature’s fury, in what has been described as the heaviest rainfall experienced in a century. The process of actually serving food to the homeless and repainting a helmet helps channel his/her sense of helplessness .There are many ways that one can help the less fortunate and get involved in the process of rebuilding. This can begin at home with one getting involved helping domestic staff, security ,drivers and other residents in the neighbourhood who are facing difficulties. During the past Tsunami rehabilitation efforts , a group of students planned to help, after their college activities, those people whose families were affected by the storm and it bears testimony that their efforts really helped them see that they could make difference. It reminds us that each one of us has the potential to be much more than we think we are. History has always regarded the pattern of rebuilding people after the cycle of destruction. Japan is an example , having survived both the effects of war and National disaster. For those inclined to believe in the power of prayer, one’s daily remembrance can include those who are suffering. The prayer goes beyond our daily needs and wants and in silence, one can really sense the bond that connects all humanity, beyond the barriers of religion caste and our personal ideas of family. The universal language of grief, brings about a deep connection that really reminds us of “Being human”.
