The Importance of Including School Students into the Community Services

By OSA Webmaster8 Subscribe to RSS | December 9th 2011 | Views:

We human are social beings who cannot live an isolated life out of the community. A community is developed out of mutual respect for each other. The community comes just next to our home life where we learn to grow and develop socially. The development of human beings is the result of the centre of activities in the community. People who share a common geographical area, a common value system, common needs and interest form a community.

The community ensures security to its habitants by providing different services. In turn, it is the duty of the members of the community to offer some kids of services to it. It is also very important to make the children aware of the community around them. The schools can play a great role in infusing community spirit among its students. In fact the school is itself a community where students, teachers and other members share the common goal of enlightening the lives with the light of knowledge. Community services in schools can teach students the basic character and history of their community. It also makes them feel that they are the members of a particular group.

School always encourages students to take part in extra-curricular activities. If these activities are connected to the community services, they can give a new dimension to the education system. Such activities help the students to develop a healthy relation not only with their peers, but with other members of their social group. These teach kids to develop a sense of civic pride and responsibility. There are various school community activities that can be used to involve students in the services of the society. Some of them are briefly discussed below:-

1. Clean up the Community- Organizing a school and cleaning up campaign can be a good idea to grow a sense of belongingness among students. Students can carry garbage bags to sort different recyclable and non-recyclable garbage from the bins. This would also help in creating environmental awareness among students

2. Plant a Tree- Planting trees is local parks and school ground is another kind of such activity. Students can raise funds for that from the members of the society itself. They also can make groups who will take care of the plants after the plantation is done so that they can be grown into big green trees

3. Cultural Show- To raise awareness among the common folk, the cultural programs like puppetry shows, dance shows and dance drama can be performed by the children of the school

4. Art Show- Students from visual arts classes can hold an outdoor exhibit on the weekends on the lawn outside the school or at a community center or local park. They also can select a particular theme for the art show that deals with some social issues

5. Community Volunteering- Children of a particular school can volunteer different activities held in the community level. Such volunteering is also beneficial for them as they can learn the communication skills from such activities

Communities may vary in size and in the complexity of inner relationships between its members. But it works as a shield to protect its members. By involving kids to the community services, we at least can strengthen our social bonds with each other.
