Special Assembly – Compassion Day 2019
`Compassion is the ultimate expression of your highest self.`
Compassion is a human value that children learn over time and through practice. In an attempt to foster in the young minds this act of kindness and harmony, overcoming all forms of discrimination, a special assembly was conducted by the students.
` A prayer in the morning can bring your focus to the place where it needs to be.´ Prayer is the greatest way to start your day.
The assembly started with a prayer, followed by thought for the day and news headlines.
A short skit was performed exhibiting the values of courteousness, respect and love for mankind by expressing gratitude towards the entire support staff of Vikhe Patil Memorial School The students emphasised on imbibing these values in their day-to-day life in all spheres. The kids also dedicated a song expressing their love and compassion towards the entire support staff. They were greeted with a ` Thank You ´ card prepared by the students of grade 7 & 8.
We could really feel the happiness, the delight in their hearts , how greatly they were touched by this small gesture of the kids.
“When the spirit of compassion becomes the bedrock of society, and is embodied by society`s leaders, the future will be bright with hope.´
The special assembly culminated with pledge and National Anthem.
