MOVIE DAY (28-Jul-2018)

Movie day was planned at Akshadhaa to give real experience of buying ticket, checking seat number, watching movie together with friends and having fun. Interval time surprised us, how they waited in a queue to buy snacks and drinks. There was no grabbing from rack, not from other friends not even wanting to have it first. The idea was to build up social behaviour, understanding and controlling emotions in a social get together. No anxiety was expressed and all sat for the movie which went for almost 1hour 40 minutes. This is not a miracle, this is relentless working with structure and conviction "YES WE CAN! "

OUTDOOR PHYSICAL EXPOSURE

It is believed at Akshadhaa that along with classroom learning and table top activities, every child needs kinaesthetic activities to keep them fit, healthy and active. For that reason along with in house sports classes, every month the children were taken to outdoor sports arena dividing them age wise to play with age appropriate sports equipment. Splash pool, jumbo trampoline are some of the attractions for the children during such outdoor play trips.

LEARNING THROUGH EXPERIMENTS AND FUN ACTIVITES

The modes of learning and strategies were always different at AKshdhaa Foundation school for the children. Most of the topics of science and concepts were explicitly designed to teach through experiments, observations and audio-visual presentations. One display cum exhibition was made after one such month long experiments with science projects.

CAFETERIA TRAINING

The vocation unit added one more segment of skill training i.e. learning skills to work in back end cafeteria. The students started learning use of simple gadgets to make snacks items, setting café tables with all essentials, serving, taking request with menu card and many such jobs that were required to know while working in a café. Building work habit, self regulation, hygiene and safety were the soft skills that were also targeted during this training.

SETTING UP MOCK CAFE FOR PARENTS

To bring work opportunity for the students who are getting cafeteria training at the institution, Akshadhaa foundation took the initiative to set up a mock café which is planned to run on important occasions and for family and friends. Such two cafes were organised in this year celebrating Fathers day and Mothers day. The invitees came and enjoyed few hours in the midst of greenery, light music, good food while connecting with other parents and making a bonding.

MINI SHOW CASE DAY

The idea of conducting mini show case day originated to bring more opportunity for the children to face audience, stand up on stage and do something which the child is confident at. It was believed from the earlier experiences that having one annual event is not enough for our children who need more such opportunities to build their social skill, confidence, waiting tolerance during such big events. Considering this thought, three mini showcase days were planned inside the institute through out the year where parents were invited to praise and motivate the children to do their best on stage.

NATURE CONNECT

"TREES ARE OUR BEST FRIENDS!" celebrating World Environment Day is a way of inculcating the value that trees have in the minds of our children. What is the best way to do so than be with mother nature herself. The children at Akshadhaa had a visit to Karnataka State Horticulture Unit and Chikbellapur Akshadhaa Vocational Training unit; for a day of oneness and serenity with the nature. The whole day was spent exploring different herbs, flowers, fruits and knowing them even more closely. Also the children were engaged in art works related to nature-stone painting, leaf printing, pot painting, etc. As a whole the day was a start to the month long "Environment Awareness'' being carried out at Akshadhaa Foundation.
