Cyclothon for a CauseMay 13, 2018
The students of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP), organised a Cyclothon on Saturday morning. The objective of the event was twofold: to raise funds to support education and health care of underprivileged children at ‘Nanhi Jaan’, and also, as a culminating activity for the IB DP students who are required to engage themselves in its core component of CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service).
A hundred and ten students from grades 9 to 12, educators and their parents, participated in the cyclothon that was flagged off by the former Chief Justice of the Allahabad High Court, Justice S.S. Sodhi (retd.) and his wife Bonnie Sodhi, from the school campus. The students displayed characteristic good cheer and camaraderie during the hour-long event executed to perfection by the cohorts of IB DP Years 1&2.
Several significant activities before the event, such as, advertising and promoting the event, seeking permissions from governmental offices, charting the route map, identifying positions of route marshals and first-aid stations, arranging for an ambulance and paramedics, as well as, taking photographs and writing reports of the event, were undertaken by the students as a hands-on learning experience.
