If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough, if it is said whole heartedly.
Each one of us come to this world with a purpose. We have a goal to achieve, we only meet people in this journey to help us achieve our goal. Every individual we meet in this process are those steps of the ladder, which we climb up on to reach the end goal and one such set of people we meet on this journey are the people who take care of our safety and protection. Imagine a day without the police force protecting us and a day without traffic police on the signal, difficult right? Things would go haywire and chaotic. This week our students of CAIE 3 and 4 had an opportunity to thank every individual on behalf of the CPS Global School, who directly or indirectly has a purpose in our life,
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
To embark the journey of our ‘Joy of Giving Week’ the students visited various traffic signal points in and around Annanagar. They thanked every superior they met and shared flowers with them. The students also expressed their gratitude through greeting cards, placards and a word of appreciation that came directly from their hearts. This day served as an opportunity for them to express their thankfulness to the community helpers who take care of us day and night.
They also visited the Assistant commissioner’s office and few traffic booths and thanked them for their untiring efforts to maintain order amidst chaotic traffic. The interaction with police personnel was informative for our children, who came up with various doubts regarding the traffic rules.
‘Events like these motivate us and boost the morale of the traffic police personnel to do better’ – police personnel at the Chintamani signal point.
The Asst. Commissioner of Police, Aminjikarai was overwhelmed with the presence of our children. He was extremely thrilled to see how these little kids show a lot of interest in understanding the different signal symbols. It was such a pleasure to see the Asst. Commissioner himself taking the efforts to explain about traffic signs to our kids.
The events that unfolded today helped our children to step into their shoes and understand how things work in managing the traffic. It was a life skill learnt by the children, which would go with them lifelong.
