Udupi: St Mary’s students conduct community outreach programme

Media Release

Udupi Oct 6: The students of St Mary’s English Medium School Kannarpady visited orphanages, old age homes and rehabilitation centers for mentally challenged as part of their community outreach programme on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi celebration.

Six different groups of students under the leadership of teacher coordinators visited Spandana Special School Nejar, Manasa Special School Pamboor, Krishnanugraha Child Adoption Centre Nittur, Goratti Sandhya Dhama Old Age Home Kalyanpura, Spoorthy Dhama Koteshwara, Karunalaya Old Age Home Brahmavara and Omega Old Age Home, Brahmavar.

Clothes, groceries, snacks and fruits were distributed by the students to the less privileged during the visit. The programme was intended to create a sense of social responsibility among school students as well as to sensitize them towards the apathetic condition of the less privileged and specially abled.

Around 300 students spent valuable time at these Ashrams and Special Schools and meaningfully observed Gandhi Jayanthi by mingling along with ashram dwellers and performing short entertainment programmes for them. Practicing the Gandhian principles through social service and being the cause of a smile in the faces of orphans, senior citizens and differently abled was really a great experience for the students.

The programme was organized under the guidance of the correspondent Fr Fred Mascarenhas and coordinated by principal Myrtle L F Lewis.
