Share and Care
"Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world".
Appreciation Day, 2016
The event started off at 9 in the morning. The students of welcomed the nannies to the auditorium. Every nanny was called on to the stage and they were given a blanket and teabags as a token of appreciation for all the help they did for us everyday. They were also given some refreshment, bringing a smile to their faces.
Some students of grades 2, 3 and 4 came forward to say a few words to thank their nannies. In addition to English, they spoke in Hindi and Malayalam. The nannies thoroughly enjoyed the day. The students also felt happy to share their joy. It was a memorable day for all the support staff.
The day reminded us of the saying, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Lighting a Billion Lives Campaign
The Primary Wing of DPS, Sharjah had invited RIS to attend a Panel Discussion on the Lighting a Billion Lives Campaign, which is led by the New Delhi based energy and environment research institute TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute). The campaign aims to bring light into the lives of one billion rural people by replacing the kerosene and paraffin lanterns with solar lighting devices. This will facilitate education of children, provide better illumination and kerosene smoke free indoor environment for women to do household chores and provide opportunities for livelihoods both at the individual level and at the village level.
Our student representatives, Neelanjana Suresh of Grade 4A and Ebbani Juneja of Grade 3A represented RIS at the LaBL panel discussion. They had the opportunity to interact with other schools’ student representatives. The Video presentations and the different talks during the discussion helped them gain an insight into the problems of the poverty stricken segment of the Indian Population. They also had an opportunity to interact with Ms Meena Janardhanan, TERI Gulf Centre. The students and senior management of DPS gave a clear idea of the ways they raised fund for the previous LaBL Campaigns.
It was indeed a great experience for our students in learning more about the LaBL campaign as well as spend some quality time with fellow students of other schools. Once they came back to school, they were eager to share their experience with their classmates and friends.
