Students of Oakridge, one of the best IGCSE Schools in Hyderabad, Bachupally presented a unique awareness session to the maid community of Maytas Hill County, a township located in Bachupally on “Girl Child Education” on 19th February, 2017. The session was conducted as part of community service initiative by the students. After the yearlong project undertaken by Grade 8 CIE on Girl child education, students expressed their keenness to carry out their learning for a cause on field. The awareness session was a student led initiative that gave them opportunity to design, reach out to audience and communicate the essence of the session effectively.
The session aimed at educating the maids on ensuring their girl child go to the school or nearby Anganwadi and also they should not be looked as substitute caretakers for their younger siblings. Most importantly, girls must be encouraged to go for school and pursue higher education.
The session covered the awareness message through a skit, a song by our students and a motivational talk given by our school security guard and her daughter who were invited to be the inspirational role models for the audience.
