24th Oct 2019. Children’s day celebrated with great fervor across Indian on November 14, this day originated from our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru fondly known as 'Chacha Nehru'.
On such a heartwarming day we HPIT volunteers added another activity in SPANDANA’s bucket list to celebrate Children’s day.
The school we selected had only two classrooms and bunch of students. We planned to surprise them with a big chocolate cake, gifts and with different snacks.
As we entered the school, we all were greeted with the “Good Morning Song” which surely reminded us of our school days.
We did cake cutting and distributed cake & snacks to students and to teachers as well They loved the cake and happily completed everything. That was a bliss to see the happiness in their eyes and bright faces. Funny thing was all the volunteers became kids suddenly and were eating & enjoying cake, chips & chocolates and with those bunch of happy children.
Chacha Nehru once said, "The children of today will make the India of tomorrow. The way we bring them up will determine the future of the country." For our wonder we saw one student initiating to collect the used plates and wrappers right after everyone finished, he took one polythene bag and asked everyone to put in that.
We ended the celebration with taking lot of photos, selfies and then students came out of the school to give a see-off to HPIT and were very thankful for making their day special.
