“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time, they have the heart.” ~ Elizabeth Andrew
On 8th May each year, we celebrate World Red Cross Day to recognise and acknowledge the principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. This day coincides with the birthday of Henry Dunant, who was born in 1828 and founded the International Committee of the Red Cross. He was also the first man to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. This day is celebrated to honor the people who come up to help the people in need like the victims of the flood, victims of famine, victims of earthquakes and everything else. Red Cross Day was celebrated across all grades to remember and acknowledge the good work that is done by the society.
Nursery to Grade II: Poster Making
Grade III: Making of the symbol of World Red Cross Day along with a slogan/quotation on it on a A4 sheet.
Grade IV and V: Making of a poster on Red Cross Society’s missions with the title ‘Everywhere for Everyone’ or ‘Together for Humanity’.
Grade VI- VII: Poster making on Promotion of Organ and tissue donation with appropriate slogan and factual information.
Grade VIII- IX: PowerPoint presentation on Disaster Relief and Recovery Services provided by Red Cross Society.
The students of Grades VI- IX were thoroughly engaged in a workshop conducted by the school nurse, where they discovered more about the humanitarian work done by the society. It was an interactive session where the presenter asked questions from the students, who were quick with their responses.
