Twenty six children and three adults visited Candor school on Nov 17. Candor students welcomed them with affection and love. Candor students particularly CAS students and boarders, interacted with the children. Four groups were formed. One group took the children to the art room and helped them to explore their artistic interests. One group played ‘dodge’ ball, one group learned to play soccer and the last group played basketball. After one hour, all went for lunch. It was nice to see our students taking care of these young children. After lunch, those children who did not get an opportunity with art work went for drawing and painting. The others were entertained with music by our students and Mr. Delwin.
The children gave our students nice cards prepared by them. The owner of the Refugee foundation, Ms. Beulah, gave a special card for the management, administrators and staff. She also expressed her gratitude for giving this opportunity to the children. On the whole it was a good learning experience for Candor students and the children. – “I learned a variety of things during the trip. This CAS activity allowed me to engage with issues of global importance. It enabled me to experience a part of the children’s lives, which evoked a new found respect for my fortunate life. I also considered the ethical implications of my actions and everything I did with the children reflected that. To conclude, I believe that I met the following outcomes:
Engage with issues of global importanceConsider the ethical implications of my actions” – Ben, Grade 11
“Life is unfair. I have to be thankful what I have. They remind me I am very lucky. These kids were very happy and grateful even though they have sad past” – Hokim, Grade 11
“Well I learned how to be a teacher even though it was for only a day. And also how lucky I am to be born in a good family which is something many kids unfortunately take for granted. I also learned that it is our responsibility as the fortunate to help the unfortunate.” – Irapon, Grade 11
