Kindness Week, Visit to the Hospital, Grandparents Day, Visit to Nyumba Ya Wazee, Visit to children's home
Every year, at the Aga Khan Nursery School Mombasa a week is set aside in the school calendar for acts of kindness. This year it was held from 11th to 15th November 2019. During this important week the nursery children recognise positive action in the community, acts of kindness and strive to perform good deeds for people they know and those they don't. The principle behind Kindness Week is to do something good, without expecting anything in return to make the day a little better or easier for somebody else.
VISIT TO THE HOSPITAL
On Monday 11th November, PP1 students went to sing and read stories to the sick children at Aga Khan Hospital Mombasa. The pediatric department were overwhelmed by the gesture with nurses and parents alike appreciating the visit
On Tuesday 12th November 2019, Aga Khan Nursery School Mombasa celebrated World grandparents’ day. The event started with a small assembly welcoming the grandparents. Thereafter different exciting activities were organised that engaged grandparents and children. The day ended with each grandparent being given a thank you card from the children.
VISIT TO “NYUMBA YA WAZEE” AND “SENIOR CITIZENS OF TUDOR KHOJA FLATS”
On Wednesday 13th November 2019, the PP2 children went to visit the elderly. They sang songs of kindness and respect, read them stories and performed role plays. The elderly were very sentimental wishing visits could be made more often as it made them feel as part of a larger family.
VISIT TO CHILDREN’S HOME
On Thursday 14th November 2019, K1 students visited a children’s home bringing clothes and non-perishable food that had been collected in school. This really showed young learners the values of empathy, kindness, diversity and importance of community service. It was a memorable week.
