An initiative by the PTA of SJBHS, the Outreach Programme is not only an out of school activity but a lesson for life. The students of Std 8 are on the threshold of adulthood but are ignorant in many ways about the realities of life. To equip them with the most important life skill of social awareness, they were taken on a tour to Shishu Bhavan and Morning Star, both homes for the physically challenged and mentally disabled.
The boys interacted with the kids in the Homes, though at first they were visibly uncomfortable with such an encounter. By and by, they relaxed and eventually spent time trying to decipher ways in which they could entertain the hosts.
All in all it was a lesson in social sensitization and an interaction to cherish for a long time to come.
