Subject : Visit to SOS Village , Bawana by 4 students, teacher Mrs. Pooja Seth and 2 parents of Jaspal Kaur Public School
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others
J.K.P.S has always emphasized on meaningful and value-oriented education. We firmly believe that our small contribution in the service of vulnerable children will go a long way in changing lives of thousands. On 3 February, J.K.P.S team ( 4 students, teacher, 2 parents) visited SOS village, Bawana.
SOS Villages, India continues to work over half a century in India to provide service to vulnerable children who have nobody to call their own.
We were really touched to see that the organization doesnot only provide a comfortable home to these children but also a ‘Mother’ who take care of all their needs.
We distributed sports items like Cricket bats, Badminton, Rackets, Gloves, Carrom Boards etc. We interacted with the children and the mother and had a great and memorable experience. It gave us immense satisfaction and pride that we, in a small way, can make a difference in their lives.
A team from J.K.P.S. comprising of Mrs.Sanjana, student volunteers and two parent volunteers visited Guru Nanak Garib Niwaj (nirmal sewa) as a part of the community outreach program on 18 January.
Nirmal sewa is a non-profit organization that provides education to children that cannot afford education. The significance of this school lies in the fact that besides providing the necessary education, they also provide the students with the normal everyday utilities that a private school would expect the students to be getting at home. Some of these utilities are a stitching club and a mid-day meal. We visited different rooms of the school and they actually depicted that how at first the school had difficulty in collecting children from the slums and was now at waiting for 200 children. The students in this school are mostly the children of convicts in Tihar jail and balloon sellers. We took grocery items for the school which we hope would support it. Last but not the least, the cleanliness was remarkable. It was a memorable visit which reaffirmed the fact that service to humanity is the greatest service one can offer and we should join our hands towards this aim.
A woollen collection drive , Spread the warmth-the joy of Giving, in partnership with Godrej Ezee was organised by The Hindustan Times. A box for collecting old woollen clothes was placed in the school premises wherein the students of JKPS contributed woollens. This initiative was an endevour by H.T to sensitise students towards relevant social issues by providing , ‘Ezee Hugs’ and warmth to the underprivileged children during the harsh winters.
The students of JKPS made the most of this opportunity and contributed in large numbers in order to spread the warmth and participate wholeheartedly in this meaningful activity

There was a special educator appointed by the charity and there was a big team of caretakers to look after the children.

Goonj is an organization that helps people in distress due to various natural calamities or other conditions. . The organization focuses on the receiver's dignity instead of donor's pride.

Respecting and caring for our Elders is one of the moral values which is inculcated in the students at JKPS. In the light of the same, five students of class VIII accompanied by a teacher, Ms. Acharan Deep Kaur and two parents volunteer, visited an old age home – Vadde Vadere on 6 October 2017.
The residents, though old and feeble, gave our children a warm welcome. To break the monotony of their lives the students played a game ‘pass the parcel’ with them and also presented a shabad, few songs and a dance. These were whole-heartedly enjoyed and appreciated by them. It was a feast to the eyes and heart to watch their response - some were clapping, some were dancing and singing with the children while some were simply sitting and watching with misty eyes, perhaps remembering their own children or grandchildren.
The people of Vadde Vadere were provided with bedsheets, towels, frooti, biscuits and cakes. Our students gave the elderly people a few moments of joy bringing a smile on those wrinkled faces and came back with a life-time experience and more love for their parents and grand parents.
Children with disabilities are like butterflies with broken wings. They are just as beautiful as all others but they need help to spread their wings
Keeping this in mind, Jaspalians( a group of five students from class VI and VII), along with our teacher Mrs. Neena Arora and two parents of class 1 students visited Abhayas Special School, Derawal Nagar on 4 October 2017.
It was a memorable, heart touching experience for the Jaspalians. The students and the parents spent quality time with the differently abled, aged between 7 to 40 years. They played games with them, sang songs and danced with them, which made everyone giggle and laugh. This special school is providing a unique learning environment for the differently abled people which helps in their growth and development. The students interacted with the teachers and instructors working there and appreciated the efforts of the team. Our students distributed hand towels, biscuits, cakes, frooti and sketch pens among the people. The aim of this visit was to sensitize the students with the needs of differently abled persons and thus giving extra care, love and attention to them. May the selfless service by the Jaspalians bring good fortune in their lives.
Community Service provides students with the opportunity to become active members of their community, as well as service those who need it the most.
With this thought in mind, Jaspalians (a group of 10 students) along with a teacher Ms. Nidhi Chanana and 3 JXSA members visited Sparsh School for differently abled students on 18 August, 2017.

It was an exciting and memorable day as the students got a chance to interact with children with special needs. The kids from the school were between the ages of 5 to 12 years, few of whom suffered from autism, learning disability, speech impairment, hyper activism etc. Although hesitant at first, their enthusiasm, excitement and joy knew no bounds when the slowly opened up and started interacting with JKPS students. The place was filled with laughter and shorts as every child responded to music and started dancing. We were amazed to see how well the development of their cognitive and colour coordinating skills were. Our students distributed notebooks, pencils, chocolates and toffees to them, played simple puzzle games and helped the kids to make paper boats, aeroplanes etc. It was wonderful to see the dedication of the teachers there who took care of these children with such love and concern.
