On 19th September as part of
program there was an exchange between students of VDJS and Mangali High School, Hisar. 40 students from the two schools visited each other’s campus, participated in various activities and enjoyed a warm interaction.
The program aims to link government schools of rural areas with the private schools to enable interaction among the students by sharing of experiences, exposure about various courses and opportunities.
The VDJS girls enjoyed the group song and the Haryanvi dance presented by the girls of Mangali High School. They also enjoyed playing indigenous games like gilli danda and stapu. Mr Rakesh Sharma the Taekwando coach of VDJS also taught a few basic steps like punches, blocks etc to equip the girls of Mangali High with self defence tips. In his address to our girls their Principal spoke about the achievements of his students in different fields specially football. He also spoke at length about the Right to education and their involvement with Red Cross. Visit to a temple and the sumptuous lunch that was served with a lot of warmth were other highlights of the visit.
In the course of their visit to our school the students of Mangali High School were engaged in art, dance and music classes. Most girls enjoyed learning the song ‘ A hundred Miles’ while the feisty dance class too was enjoyed a lot. The Art Department engaged them in the making of pots and their decoration an activity which they did with great enthusiasm. The girls also enjoyed a game of basketball and the round of the campus. Thereafter they enjoyed lunch in the School Dining Hall and returned with the desire and promise to visit again soon.
The exchange was a great opportunity to help open up young minds to new experiences. It enabled the students of both schools to understand and respect cultural differences and will go a long way in fostering a spirit of sharing, caring and togetherness.
