A School Orientation Program was conducted for all parents. AVM Amit Aneja gave a great talk followed by our new Counselor Saumya Sharan who opened the platform for a compassionate approach towards the upbringing of children. Students of Class 12 presented a short skit on Effect of Smoking. Members of AA and AL were invited and they spoke openly about their experiences with Alcohol. The audience was very receptive and as a result we have planned to make Diksha available for weekly workshops by AA and AL. The entire workshop was based on the chapter in Life Skills called Making Healthy Choices in Life taught to Classes 7 through 12 by Life Skills Coach Chhondira Chatterjee. Parents were also given a manual related to these regular workshops. AA and AL have agreed to hold regular meetings in the school premises.
