This time we organized Play For Peace (PFP) session in Jathana Higher Primary School, Padumarnadu, Karkala. The objective of this session was to take responsibility in save the earth from plastic. The session was planned for 1.30 hours. Children really enjoyed participating. We used energizers and communication methods in this activity.
Jathanna Higher Primary School, located in Moodabidri town of Kundapura District in the Indian state of Karnataka, was established in 1929. It is a Kannada Medium school for children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Till now more than 8 volunteers have did their volunteer service from different countries.
The session begun with an introduction and continued with energizers. Along with the children we agreed in common rules to make this program success. Surprisingly children kept their promise and actively participated in each activities.
The games were mainly focused on individual responsibility. I wanted the children to learn values such as self-understanding, taking responsibility without expectation from others.
Overall I considered the session to have been successful and positive for the understanding of respect among these school children.
