Tagorean Awareness Society

In the year 2014, two socially minded students from Class VIII, Samarth Parmar and Satya Dewan, launched the Tagorean Awareness Society (TAS) for Class VI-VIII. Today we have more and more members joining from class VI to XI. They are supported by their Faculty Mentor Ms. Radhika Malhotra. The society has two goals: to promote cleanliness and to support a school for the underprivileged.

Cleanliness: TAS has instated the ‘Cleanest Classroom Award’. TAS members judge classrooms on the following parameters: class cupboard, floor, furniture, and dustbin cleanliness. The winner is announced once in a month. They receive a trophy which they proudly display in their class for one month till it is taken away by another class that has been the cleanest next month.

Samarpan School: TAS has chosen to work with the Samarpan School in VasantKunj. They will visit the school once a month, conduct activities for the children, help them with their homework and donate books and eatables. Our students have interactive sessions with the children, play small games, antakshari, and conduct drawing and craft lessons with the children. The students then distribute storybooks and eatables. TAS even sing songs and spend time with them. Every time that the TAS members visit the school the children there are overjoyed to see them. The Principal Mrs Sherna is very helpful and accommodating. The TAS members are touched and grateful for the opportunity to interact with children so different from them. They realized that against all odds, the students at Samarpan school were happy, enthusiastic and positive. They are very eager to learn new things and want to work hard for a better future for themselves and their families.During the journey back to school the students exhibit a sense of satisfaction on spending their holiday with these children who eagerly wait for them. Every time they come back more satisfied and enriched!
