 REFLECTIONS  BY THE VOLUNTEERS :

1) MAHASHWETA  MAHIYARIA : INTERN

 The students at DPS Khanna, were a highly enthusiastic bunch. Since it was the beginning of the session, their energy level was high too. They were very responsive to the activities conducted, and there was always a small group in each class, that did exceptionally well in the activities conducted. The attention span is less, and therefore methods have to continuously be devised to keep their attention to the task at hand. Discipline, however, was not a great issue. Writing skills are better than speaking skills, but grammar (tenses mainly) needs work. They are inquisitive, and did ask meanings of words, or explanation of sentences. It was a very promising batch and the experience of conducting the workshop with them was highly enriching. Overall, the internship has added a lot to my own personal development, and creativity. Glad I did this.

 

2) SUSHMANJALI NUTHALAPATI: INTERN

The students are really creative and upto the mark. My experience of interning at DPS Khanna is really good.

The children , there, are loveable and very talented.

 

3) TANYA KHATRI: INTERN

The students at Delhi Public School, Khanna were extremely intelligent. They showed keen interest in all the activities that were conducted in the workshop.

It was an enriching experience in conducting the workshop at DPS Khanna.

   4) VIKASH SINGH : INTERN

We successfully conducted the workshop at DPS Khanna.

The students were very enthusiastic and had interest in reading books.

They actively participated in all the activities that were conducted by us.

It was a pleasure in getting to meet such creative minds..

 

 

5) ANURADHA JHA : COORDINATOR

I had a wonderful experience at DPS khanna , the students were energetic and enthusiastic . As planned we tried to make our lesson fun and creative and were able to achieve our goals. Got to learn lots of things.

The response from the school was positive and we are glad to have such feedback.

 

6) RAMNEEK SINGH :  PROJECT MANAGER

The students at DPS KHANNA were extremely creative  and talented.

They actively participated  in all the activities  and had a passion for reading  different  books  be it mythological , factual  or fiction.

The students were very disciplined and were well  aware of the rules and regulations of the library.

Our Workshop at DPS KHANNA has been a tremendous success and has gained immense appreciation from the school management,  teachers and the students.

The workshop  has been very rewarding and a lot of fun. I am very proud of how we have grown as a team and of the work that we have accomplished together. It has been great getting to know my teammates better, as we have tackled  some  challenging and rewarding  situations during the workshop . My  experience as a Manager has been paramount to me redefining my definition of leadership. I have personally been very fortunate to have had formal opportunities to develop my leadership skills and be provided with opportunities to exhibit it as well. This has given me tremendous exposure to new opportunities and only accelerated my growth as a leader.

I would like to thank KITAAB CLUB for giving me this opportunity to be a Project Manager  for the Summer Readership Programme, Punjab,2018.
