MYP students at Manav Seva Sangh - an old age home

The MYP students of RBKIA went for Community and Service at Manav Seva Sangh on  11 November 2011. The students shared some moments with the senior citizens, talking to them about their experiences in life. They sat down with the senior citizens in groups and discussed their hobbies, the food they love, the sports that they played and their achievements. The senior citizens were looking forward to such an opportunity, where they could share their feelings with some one, who can listen to them patiently. Later, the students requested them to perform. To our surprise, many of them were good classical singers. The students also reciprocated to the senior citizens' request. The session ended with "antakshari". It was such a rich, wonderful experience for the young students. The students become compassionate, sensitive and responsible towards community in which they live - which is the purpose of the IB education.
