BHAVAN¡¯S VIDYA MANDIR, PATHANAMTHITTA

BHAVAN¡¯S COMMUNITY SERVICES 2016 onwards

 

As we all know Bhavan¡¯s gives equal importance to curricular and co-curricular activities. As a result we have made community service as a part of our activities inorder to inculcate right kind of values in our students.

 

¡°When we give, we share what we have with others,

 It makes life worth living and gives others a smile;

It matters not the size or quantity of the gift imparted.

It¡¯s the love perceived that makes it worthwhile.¡±

 

This year we decided to do our community service in association with Mathrubhumi and VKC Nanma under the theme ¡°Love thy neighbor as thyself¡± a famous quote from the Holy Bible.

 

Here is a brief report of our Social projects.

 

1.       We began our noble deed by donating Rs. 10,000 to Sri. Rajan of Elanthoor Raj Bhavan who was a cancer patient undergoing treatment in Trivandrum RCC. They were struggling due to financial crisis for his treatment. The amount was donated from the Benevolent Fund, which is an activity of the integrity club, where the students donate a small amount on their birthday¡¯s towards poor fund. The amount was handed over to Smt. Sathi Rajan wife of Mr. Rajan on 16th Aug, 2016 by our Hon. Secretary Shri. P.I. Sherief Muhammed in the presence of Principal Annie Mathen, Vice Principal Suvarna Sasi, Ward Member Seema Saji, Manager Shri P.M Hamza, Administrator Shri. P. R. Rajan and Shri. M. S. Alex during a special assembly where our students witnessed the event.

 

2.       When the students of all the other schools celebrated Onam – the state festival of Kerala with a grand feast and colourful programmes Onam celebration in Bhavan¡¯s Vidya Mandir was a unique one. Along with the usual programme, we were much satisfied when we were able to donate Rs. 10,000 to Baby Sai Priya a 3 year old baby who was suffering from Blood Cancer and was under treatment at RCC, Trivandrum. The amount was handed over to Sri. Satheesh father of Sai Priya by our Hon. Secretary in the presence of all our students. Sri. Satheesh expressed his heartfelt gratitude and blessed our students on the occasion.

 

3.       As we all know, now a days the number of old age homes are increasing because Grown ups have no time to take care of their parents who brought them up to that level. We wanted our students to realise the feelings of a parent when they are isolated from their family and made to stay in an old age home. We believe that this is a great practical lesson for their life, the memories of which linger in their minds forever.

We took our students to ¡°Mar Gregorius Shanthi Sadan¡± on 28th Aug, 2016 and donated a sum of Rs. 3000 to cater to their need of one meal. More than the amount, the inmates were deeply touched when our students spent some time with them presented a small cultural programme and heard their life experience. The inmates were very happy and were almost in tears when they left the orphanage.

4.       Bhavan has always been unique in our celebrations. As a part of Christmas celebrations on 21st Dec 2016 our students visited Madhumala Colony and distributed a kit comprising of 5kg rice and all the other necessary provisions to 30 families who are living below the poverty line. This noble act caught the attraction of print and the electronic media. This was another great lesson for our students which they cannot learn from books. This programme was initiated by Smt. Sheela, Nanma Co-ordinator, of the school, Sri. P. R. Rajan, Administrator and PTA President Shri. Teny Chacko in the presence of ward member Smt. Seema Saji and Sri. Pristo P Thomas. The distribution of kit was inaugurated by the School Manager Sri. P. M. Hamza and Principal Ms. Annie Mathen welcomed the gathering. We believe that such noble acts would trigger the thoughts of our students to continue to do such activities even when they grow up.

5.      Another community activity we did was to take our students to a group of visually challenged people staying in Kennady Charitable Trust on 22nd Dec 2016. Nearly 40 blind people who were really suffering in need of help were visited by our students when they decided to celebrate their Christmas and New Year with them by distributing all the necessary items including Christmas cake and provisions. This kind act was inaugurated by Pathanamthitta Municipal Chair Person Smt. Rajani Pradeep.

 

6.       Mr. Gopalan a resident of Midhul Bhavan at Aimali Pathanamthitta was given Rs. 5000 for undergoing a surgery on his leg. The family had a lot of financial crisis and the amount was handed over to Smt. Omana Gopalan wife of Sri. Gopalan by our Principal.

7.       We also took part in Swach Bharat Mission and cleaned our surroundings to eradicate mosquitoes. Students were divided into various groups and the teachers gave them necessary instructions.

8.       We also donated Rs. 1000 to Shanthi Theeram an orphanage at Pathanapuram.

Unique way of celebrating the state festival

Onam the State festival of Kerala was celebrated in a unique way at Bhavan¡¯s Pathanamthitta. Instead of having great feast along with the other festivities our students donated that amount to be given to Mrs. Omana,  M/o Mr. Gireesh, Kadamanitta who is a cancer patient. Onam is the time for caring and sharing. Students and teachers also visited Kennedy Charitable home for the blind and distributed new clothes, eatables and provisions to give the real meaning for the celebration for which our festival Onam stands.

As a part of Mathrubhumi Nanma Club activity the amount was handed over by a student Aarushi S of IV Std in the presence of Hon. Secretary Shri.
