The members of Cubs and Bulbuls went to Paadai Home, an Orphanage at Valasarawakkam as part of their community service programme. The students received a joyous welcome from the inmates. We had taken tooth brushes, tooth paste, oil, bath soap, dettergent soap, talcum powder, biscuits and stationery items which we distributed amongst the children. They were ecstatic to receive guests, especially children of their own age.
The students also planted saplings and engaged the children with games. The inmates entertained the
students with the recital of drums (parai).
The visit to the orphanage was a fulfilling experienceas the students returned not only with fond
memories but also some valuable lessons.
