Cleanliness has much importance in everyone’s life. It is vital for a healthy body, mind and spirit. Every individual is taught the importance of cleanliness right from their childhood, especially at school. Recognizing the vital role in spreading cleanliness awareness and implementation, St. Xavier’s High School, Gurgaon, undertook the Swacchta Abhiyan in different areas of Gurgaon. Under the program the students of Grade 9 and 10 took up the responsibility of cleaning different areas in and around school.

Principal of the institution  Mr. Stanley Anthony addressed the students stressing upon the fact that we need to work hand in hand for the success of the campaign. The cleanliness drive held by the school was in accordance to the nation-wide Swachh Bharat Mission launched by Prime Minister on 2nd October, 2014. The school chalked out a plan to organize the drive in order to raise the awareness amongst the common people. The students took a pledge to clean their schools, homes, public places and surroundings.

The whole drive was quite inspiring and motivating for the staff and students. The students realized that any work is best done when it is carried out by a person himself. It also made the students aware of the dignity of labour. 

    Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions

    Good traffic management is key to achieving the department's goal of a safe and efficient road network for a country. To ensure the safety of road users, traffic control and road work personnel in construction zones around the state, it is essential to maintain effective traffic management and educate people about traffic congestion.Students of grade 9-10 participated in a “Traffic Management Rally”at various places on 29th September 2018 to create awareness and spread the message of following traffic rules, as life is a precious gift of God. The students held pla-cards with the messages depicting the condition of mother earth. The rally started at the central red light of Sector 4- 7 InoxChowk, which is commercially a very busy area. Renowned BJP leader from Haryana Shri G L Sharma blessed the occasion with his benign presence and motivated the students to take up the cause. Students not onlyhelped the traffic policemen to manage the mob of traffic but also shouted slogans and talked to people about saving planet earth by carpooling, switching off the engines while waiting at the red light and following rules and passing the legacy of a wonderful India for their generations to come. The students also stressed upon the fact that the traffic congestion is caused by inefficient traffic control, excess demand and people not obeying the traffic rules. Defining the main cause of traffic congestion is a challenge in India as everyone is in a hurry to reach on time which ends up in traffic congestion. The students shouting slogans conveyed a message through this rally was that being the countrymen we can only build the nation we have always wanted to see.

    The students are theharbinger of progress to the nation and such steps at an early stage of learning is surely to awaken the leader in them.

       The aim of the workshop was to tell the importance of Stories in today’s scenario when the relationships among children and parents has withered due to increasing availability of technology-driven options at the disposal of children.  The workshop started with an engaging icebreaking activity. The School Counsellor shared that Stories not only help in improving a child’s imagination, creativity, enhances vocabulary but also leads to overall development of personality. Parents enthusiastically participated in the different group activities where they stepped inside a story and narrated self created stories in front of audience. The workshop also dwelled into the key principles of storytelling and how to narrate a story to the kids. Our Pre-nursery teacher Ms. Ruchi Gandhi also narrated a wonderful story and guided how to engage children. Ms. Manpreet Sandhu ended the workshop with a message that kids should curl up in the bed with imaginative learning experience.

The assembly commenced with the prayer ‘Vakra-TundaMaha-Kaya Suurya- Koti Samaprabha’praising the deity and soliciting the Lord to make their work obstacles free always. The highlight of the event was when the students made a mass appeal and cautioned the use of nonbio- degradable raw materials such as Plaster of Paris, thermocol, incandescent lighting with compact fluorescent lights (CFL), use of plastic etc. and suggested ways and means like the use of turmeric, henna and rice powder as natural colours for decorating,colouring Lord Ganeshaand for making Rangolias these colours do not pose a threat to human health and affect the environment.The students further acknowledged the avoidance of plastic bags and suggested replacing them with eco- friendly material, they further made a humble submission of restricting the masses from using fire crackers, since there is no direct connection between one’s faith and fireworks. The educatees showcased the values of Lord Ganesha for the betterment of mankind and encouraged pupils to be the ambassadors for safeguarding the Mother Earth and the whole universe, as Xavierians have always believed in the preachings of Lord Ganesha.
