This activity was quite different from what I expected. I had to manage underprivileged privilege students to make them do the activity of tug of war but the number of students that came was unexpected to me. It was hard to control the situation and make the activity success from all the students. Thanks to the supervisor and the staff team that made the situation controllable. There were students who were deaf and dumb, so communication with them was hard. We use to give them hand signs and gestures to communicate. Sometimes also joined them to make the teams equal and it was fun.
After this activity i got to know that i am go at managing children’s and as i knew Gujarati it was easy to communicate with students because most of the students were comfortable with Gujarati as a language. I think next without any help of staff team i should be able to manage this many students.
By doing this activity I developed the skill of managing students and also I developed the skill of leadership.
I was fully committed to my activity and I was always with my partner and the staff team to make the activity successfully.
As there were too many students coming at a time like 50 students per group or more. I realize that it was getting much easy to manage them with the help of staff team. Before when the staff team was not there. We were not able to manage our activity, so I learnt that working collaboratively is more efficient.
The ethical part was that to give equal chances to all the students on the field. Also quality activity and time to the students because sometimes due to the time restriction, we were unable to give equal chances to the students.
Participating in this activity made me feel good that I gave service to underprivileged students. The value of this activity for me was not that much but for the underprivileged students it meant a lot from them. They gained a new experience too. The activity was effective because larger number of students got this new experience, so yes it was effective. This activity will be a life changing for me. It conveyed the message that be happy with what you have and don’t complain for the things you don’t have.
