Service activities in India

During our term in India, all students took part in a service activity at one of the local villages.

Grade nine and ten students went to the nearby Kondikal Primary School, where they taught young students English through games, song and dialogue. TGS students worked together in their teams to plan and implement their lessons, adapting to the various challenges they faced each week.

Grade eleven and twelve students spent time at the nearby hamlets of Mokila Tanda and Kondikal Tanda. While here, they worked to establish composting pits, painted murals on the schools’ external walls and helped to clean up and begin the restoration process of a small temple in the two communities. During these trips, many of our students spent time playing games, sharing English and learning Telagu with the young children of the neighborhood.

 

At the request of the village, we also worked together with a local mason and his team to build a boundary wall for the school at Kondikal Tanda. This proved to be a labor-intensive task, with students digging parts of the foundation; prying boulders loose; mixing cement; and carrying heavy cement bricks. Some students also earned the trusted job of brick laying.

 

All of our students worked well in these various tasks, and by doing so they developed new skills and overcame unexpected challenges while learning more about the neighboring communities and themselves. They should be proud of their achievements and commitment to these activities.
