Versatile Interact Club
Our first Interact activity/session took place on Sept 30, 2020 via Zoom. The students of Versatile school along with their principal and teachers attended this session in large numbers.
The session was conducted by our very own member Rtn. Amita Nene. She started the session by getting everyone at ease and telling them to interact with her on chat during the hour she would conduct the session. The session started with some pictures wherein behaviour of students was depicted and the Versatile students were asked to respond to these pictures. An excellent response from the students showed Amita she had their attention. The session then progressed with explaining the various types of stress and how to manage the same. A couple of quizzes made the students more confident about knowing their own stress level and how they would address the same. Amita also had some short videos where different situations that can lead to stress. Then towards the end Amita showed them a breathing technique that can help towards any kind of stress – now or in their whole life.
On the whole an excellent session where not only did the students take back a learning but I believe even the adults attending the session learnt they can manage stress better.
My sincere thanks to Rtn. Amita for conducting this session. Thank you to our President Makarand Phadke who gave the students an overview of what Rotary is all about and giving pointers on how they can benefit from the session that we would conduct. A big thank you to Principal Mrs.Vandana Bolakhe and Vice Principal Arusha Majali (also Metro member) for your support.
