Awareness week that has become an integral part of Spring Dale institution is observed every year to commemorate the death anniversary of the two great visionaries of our school Sir B.S. Sood and Ma’am Krishna Sood who believed “Awareness is the greatest agent for change”.

Every year a social issue is taken up to apprise the students and their parents about it. This year’s social issue taken up for the awareness week is “Psycho – social impact of the pandemic – how to cope with it”. The Covid -19 pandemic has a heavy impact on health – both physical and mental leading to additional health problems like stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, fear and social well being.

Activities at Indira Nagar Branch

A leader, it is rightly said influences generations. Continuing to move on the path of our esteemed founders,we every year pay homage to them in the best possible way —by spreading the light of knowledge and awareness among all.
This year too undaunted by the pandemic up heaval, we at Spring Dale continued our journey but virtually choosing to reflect and ponder upon,
“The Psyco-social impact of the pandemic and how to cope with it.”
A glimpse of how our students of various age groups and teachers dealt with this. Our creative bunch, who let not a moment go by without making the most of it, ‘Positivity’ being the catch word. Our tiny tots of pre-primary, primary and middle school learnt during the lockdown period to stay positive and feel happy… yoga, exercise, cooking, drawing and painting.
Poems by the Students of Indira Nagar Branch
With dazzling lights and happy sights people entered the new year
All people wanted was a better future and staying close to their near and dear
But then entered the deadly Covid 19 into our lives
It started to spread every day all the time
The death rates went so high
People could only sit at their homes and sigh
For staying at home was the only option
And going out only led to our own destruction
The cure to this is yet to be found
and the news these days is the worst sound
Everything possible is being done
but honestly the effects seem to be none
Because the virus is spreading more and more with every rise of the Sun.
I wish I hope things start falling back into place again
Because this pandemic is making people insane
Not forgetting your hand sanitizer while leaving your house is a task
And most important is to wear a mask
Staying at home , maintaining a distance and washing hands regularly are advised the most
Because you don’t want to take in the virus and be a host.
By Taneeshi – Class X-C
Wash your hands! Don’t go out!
If you must, then mask it!
Lest you end up
in an unwanted casket.
Self isolating and avoiding the street,
trying not to lose your job
while making ends meet.
Still, Bezos, Ma, Zuckerberg and Gates
are making profits at dizzying rates.
While Big Pharma
is wringing it’s hands in anticipation
of the Big Vaccine
made available to every nation.
And while people will line up
to get the Big shot,
I’ll have a Corona
and drink it a lot.
Then there is my Company
that thinks it’s OK
to keep us at home
at 60 percent of our pay.
As the cost of living
gets dearer and dearer,
how can these suits at head office
look themselves in the mirror.
Can’t go to restaurants or movies
with a clear conscience.
No social contact, no hugs or kisses.
This is no nonsense.
Even if sport comes back
there’ll be no one in the stands.
I’ve had it with COVID-19,
I’m gonna go wash my hands.

COVID-19, The virus of CORONA
Originating from Wuhan in China,
Has created a unusual scare,
Crossing borders, on the Earth’s sphere.
From America to Zambia,
Everyone whether rich or poor;
Of any nationality and religiosity,
Is hit by the fear on their persona.
Till now in months
Many thousand lives are lost;
Unfortunately, one more shadow in cast.
LIFE, Virtually, has come to a standstill,
Including India, to a downhill.
Don’t panic; Fight the Pandemic!
Need to wash the hands frequently,
Remain in isolation, away from public,
Indside one’s home preferably.
Follow ‘JANTA CURFEW’ help save all
Honour deep rooted Indian saanskaar:
Greet people with a Namaskaar!
Persue unity and fight the fear
Stay HUMANE and have a vision clear..
By Aditi Gupta
