Awakening Programme: ‘Being Respectful’
Noida, September, 2022: Our school launched the Awakening Programme in collaboration with Ramakrishna Mission to promote values such as respect, value, pride, courage and sacrifice, facing challenges and doing our best.
As part of this programme, multiple sessions were conducted in Classes I-V in the month of September 2022. The second value of ‘Being Respectful’ was vicariously developed in students via various activities related to the key message of the story which is ‘integrity and respect for all’. These activities were conducted in classes as per the pre-defined manual, to track the awakening journey of the children and thereby empower them to manifest their infinite potential to help others.
The use of activities like ‘guided role play’ and ‘enactment’ in this programme aimed to encourage the child to collaborate with others, think, reflect, respect, value and thereby aid in their socio-emotional development. It enables the students to brainstorm and develop a script that helps them to invent various ways of dialogue delivery and play proceedings. Group discussions were conducted to make them understand the importance of the value of 'Being Respectful' and help them imbibe the same. They all enjoyed the interactive session.
Through these various explorations, situation analyses, discussions, classroom sessions and real-life examples, the students discovered the tremendous impact of manifesting these possibilities and the means to do so and succeeded in answering the desired questions mentioned in the sessions.
The emphasis was on understanding the impact of Awakening Sessions on the students and giving them a framework for decision-making, enabling the discovery and acceptance of values and bringing about an inner transformation.
