  • shalom and society



Social and community service form an integral part of the 'beyond academics' activities of the school. The school habitually arranges for visits to old age homes and orphanages as part of the Social Service Week and Donation Week celebrations. The Shalom students visit different Old-Age homes, orphanages and schools for children with special needs with warm clothes, woollies and blankets. Most importantly, on every visit, they infuse their days with the warmth of their kindliness, concern and good-will. The sensitive youngsters of our school lend a patient ear and a helping hand to the senior citizens during their visits to the old age homes. The interaction with the lesser fortunate members of the society leaves a deep imprint on the students who avow to do whatever they can do to alleviate their lot.

1. Visits to Rehabilitation centres, Old Age homes and Orphanages

As a part of the school's Community and Social Service Programme, the students of Shalom Hills International School visit old age homes, Rehabilitation centres and interview drug addicts like Old Age Spastic home, Depashram and Asha Bhawan and learn from them how they fell prey to drug addiction and how they have been rehabilitated. Through their personal experiences, the young students imbibe the valuable lesson of how to stay away from drugs as well as to volunteer help to a person wanting to overcome this addiction.

2. Campaigns by Shalom Interactors

The members of the school's elite Rotary Interact Club which is a part of Rotary International exhibit their deep-seated commitment to the cause of a 'Green and Clean Environment' by initiating a 'Clean up campaign' in Gurgaon.

  • 2a. - Clean up the bazaars

    One particular clean up campaign was organized by the young students when they took upon themselves to educate and sensitize the vendors and green grocers about the imperative need to reduce wastage and to dispose off waste properly.

    Undeterred by the dreary and overcast sky and a hibernating sun, the youngsters laden with paper bags and high spirits went up to the fruit and vegetable vendors in Civil Lines, Gurgaon. They educated them about the need to keep the surroundings where they live and work, hygienic and clean. They handed over the utilitarian paper bags prepared by Grade V students to the green grocers and vegetable sellers, thus exhorting them to practically say a 'No to plastic bags'. The students placed placards and slogans highlighting the urgent need to clean up the environment at strategic points and positions in Civil Lines.

    The Gen-X of the school lived up to Gandhiji's immortal words 'we must be the change we wish to see around us' by clearing up the littering fruit peels and rotten vegetables lying scattered around the area. The youngsters influenced the bystanders and others in the vicinity to also join in and clean up the debris. The students set an example before the grown-ups by wearing cloth aprons and protecting their hands with sterilized gloves, thereby giving a practical demonstration of how waste materials should also be disposed off in a hygienic and effectual manner.

  • 2b. - Visits to villages and contributing to village school libraries

    Recently, the school students as youth ambassadors went to a nearby village Akbar in Sonipat with books which they contributed to the village's school library. They personally met the village children and their parents and told them about the importance of education and learning. The youngsters struck a chord with the rural folks with their simplicity and sincerity. They urged the young boys and girls to read more and to be self-motivated.

3. Walk for vision

Shalomites join the 'Gurgaon-Walk for Vision' at Leisure Valley, Gurgaon

Whenever and wherever there is a noble cause to espouse, students of Shalom Hills International School are always at the scene of action. Shalomites enthusiastically took part in the first and largest blindfolded marathon covering a stretch of 2.4 kms in Leisure Valley, Gurgaon. As part of the campaign to enhance awareness about the dark world of the blind and how eye donation can bring light and hope in their world, the children ran or walked blind-folded, chanting slogans of 'Netre Daan, Mahaan Daan.'

The students of Shalom Hills International School vowed to contribute their mite (might) to noble causes such as Eye Donation.

4. Say No to Crackers

The 'Say No to Crackers' campaigns by Shalom students go beyond the conventional trappings and lip service. They are thoughtfully planned and serve to sensitize the children and through them the community about the life of brutality and danger that the poor children lead while working in factories making firecrackers. These campaigns are a sincere attempt on the behalf of the school to bring a sense of realization in the society as to how these children get victimized.

Through posters, cards promoting Green Diwali, thematic paintings, slogans and catchy captions on 'Save Environment', 'Go-Green', 'Abolishing Child labour', 'Noise Pollution', 'Air Pollution', 'Harm to animals and birds' and 'Disturbance to the elderly and babies', the students of Shalom Hills International School have tried their best to spread awareness among their fellow-students and society for the imperative need to stop bursting crackers and have highlighted the far-reaching repercussions on man, animals and environment alike.

5. 'SAVE GIRL' Campaigns

"We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop."

Shalom students under the auspices of sister campaigns and under the aegis of its Founder-Managing Director, Dr Lilly George who is a well-known philanthropist and renowned for her contribution to social service and women empowerment have taken up the cause of the girl child and raised their voice against the atrocities perpetrated against the girls.

Through Poster Making Competitions and Drawing contests on the theme of 'Save Girl Child', children portray their feelings against the injustices done to a girl child and on the positive side, also depict a bright future with equal respect and opportunities for them.

Through Slogan and Caption Writing Competitions they bring alive the insensitivity of society wherein female infants are still found dumped in trash, by the dozens, while unborn foetuses continue to be snuffed out in the womb.

Street plays or gali nukkad have been deployed as an effective tool by which the young students have roused the collective consciousness of their community to espouse the cause of Girl Child. Through powerful performances and evocative dialogues, the students have brought alive the sorry picture of a girl child - bright but unprivileged, a twinkle in the eye but remorse in the spirit; the Indian girl child, a picture of dismay.

Cleanliness is next to Godliness. But it is commonly observed that we do not always practice what these eternal proverbs or values preach; things are often different when it comes to converting them into a ground reality. A progressive step has been undertaken by the government since on 2nd October’14, a Swachh Bharat Mission is being launched, a massive mass movement, that seeks to create a Clean India. Cleanliness was very close to Mahatma Gandhi’s heart and a clean India is the best tribute that we as a nation can pay to Bapu when we celebrate his 150th birth anniversary in 2019. Mahatma Gandhi devoted his life so that India attains ‘Swarajya’. Now the time has come to devote ourselves towards ‘Swachchhata’ (cleanliness) of our motherland.

Green School and clean surroundings is a cause that is very close to the management’s heart and under their guidance, many initiatives towards a Green n Clean school have been implemented and many are on-going. Shalom faculty, members of the Student Council and housekeeping staff took up the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan not as a sidelight or as a token measure but whole-heartedly and willingly. Armed with brooms, mops, dust pans, spade and all possible cleaning materials, the teachers of Shalom Hills International School led by the school principal, Ms. Ritu Mehta and the Head-Mistresses swept the premises, dusted the window sills, cleaned the surrounding areas, primed the shrubs and even gave a facelift to the area outside and adjacent to the school. They literally whipped up a veritable dust-storm while cleaning up the school area and when the dust settled—Hey Presto – A Swachh School and surroundings emerged. Satisfaction was writ large on the face of the students and staff when they viewed the spic and span area and school grounds.

Whenever a worthy cause has to be taken up or lent support to – Shalom Hills International School is a sure forerunner!
