Prayaas 2018-19

A small effort to create a better world
We at SAS always like to teach our students the importance of compassion. Be it towards animals or the underprivileged or the elderly.
The students of Pre Primary visited Anganvadi Rotla Kendra, Thaltej on December 22, 2018. The tiny tots distributed clothes, food parcels, toys, woollens etc and conducted a small cultural programme to entertain the underprivileged children. It was so touching to see smiles on their faces.
We are sure that such initiatives will help our students to become good citizens.

Andh Kanya Prakash Gruh
Shanti Asiatic School had invited visually impaired children from Andh Kanya Prakash Gruh to sell Diyas on 24th October 2018. The Diyas were sold in packets of 2 and 6 . All the students eagerly took part in this charity drive.

Organ Donation Drive
