A day to remember

A day to remember

TURNING YOUNG

 Senior citizens from the Friends-In-Need Society’s old age home were given a chance to relive their college days and were treated to a day of fun with lots of games, food and cultural activities. Apart from it being a fun activity, it was also part of an assignment that the students had to compulsorily undertake. This event gave the students an opportunity to understand the adjustment patterns of the aged through experiential study. The day began with games like blowing the candles on a cake. This gave them a chance to laugh their hearts out. Musical chairs had all of them on their feet. More games followed.

Among those who participated was Patrick who presented a wonderful love song. The students too sang a few songs. Principal Sr Albina and Vice Principal Sr Juanita spent some time with the old people. The menu was elaborate with dishes such as khandvi, idli chat, pav bhaji, cake and ice-cream with fruit salad. A senior citizen, Gopal, said he felt young again and expressed his desire to spend more time with young people. Alice, who was just as emotional, burst into a song. It was a heartening moment for the students and the aged who came and spent almost a whole day on campus.
