Rain seems to kickstart ZPHS Kukatpally, moosapet, Gowdavally n Shamshiguda too :)

It wasn’t one of those perfect sunny days. In fact the day was a rainy one with flooded roads and traffic blocks everywhere which could make one lazy and lethargic and not really enthusiastic, especially if it was for doing something voluntary. Despite all this the first day of official SAHAYA beginning for the year began and ended on a great note. Amazingly all the volunteers turned up braving all the odds and bad weather. The dark depressing cloudy day was soon forgotten on seeing the curious cheerful bright faces of the children. All the kids (6th, 7th, 8th and 9th standards/grades in school) were excited to meet us and likewise the volunteers were equally excited at meeting them for the first time.
The days surpriizing moment is call for a meet by the school managment of ZPHS kukatpaly. We provided them with te years agenda based on the lessons we learnt past years and received few suggetions not exactly few bt many. Surprisingly, the aproach from management was really +ve and the meet session was just like charging up our enthusisam and buiding up confidence in us. Their suggetions and proposals were as same as our objectives and year agenda and are lot more about life skills motivation. After this exciting meet all the volunteers were having great enthusiasm and were very eager to start off the days great session.By the time it was lunch break and after Rajsekhars great efforts in allocating volunteers to all the classes not just in ZPHS K bt in Moosapet too. We all dispersed just for lunch and again grouped up for commencing the days most awaiting session.
The icebreaking session began with the usual introductions but with a twist. It was just like as below. After this exciting beginning, all the kids introduced themselves with great enthusiasm.

Volunteers in 6th and 7th faced the same experience as if they were in boxing court with 50-60 students fighting them.:-)
As a solution we took them to ground for a playing games.
Current Expression: 
hurreeey by kids:-).... 
and huffffffffff by volunteers....:-/
With some re leaf  we divided them in to teams to play Co-Co.
The cheerful kids with their enthusiasm and energy levels especially in the Co-Co game and volunteers along with newbies were great and had great day. The not so perfect day ended on a great note with each of the volunteers having had lots of fun, more then fun they had great challenges in first session and looking forward with eagerness towards spending more time with these little ones.
