“All work and no play makes jack a dull boy” so true is this saying. When the model village cell of IIT Roorkee accepted the responsibility of educating young minds, they did not miss out the extra-curricular activities in their schedule. Thus along with teaching academic subjects to the students of Bangheri village, additional activities were planned from time to time so that the students may get a chance to explore what lies inside them.
Keeping in mind, the overall development of the personality of the students, various events were conducted by NSS Model Village Cell like Quiz Competitions, Sport Events and Essay writing competition. Even the students who are not able to attend the school on a regular basis were asked to be present at class on Sundays in order to keep pace with their studies. On 31st October such students who put in extra efforts for the sake of their studies were rewarded and encouraged in the prize distribution ceremony.
“A healthy mind dwells in a healthy body”. Along with weekly school activities NSS Model Village also motivates students to participate in sport activities and the students who excelled were awarded in the ceremony. NSS Model village encourages its students to perform well in academics as well as other activities and the morale of the students was boasted after this prize distribution ceremony which was more than evident from their smiling faces. This reassured that NSS is on the right path of achieving the dream of a better and happy society.
