The TonsBridge School Contributing to the Society
As part of its corporate social responsibility, The TonsBridge School presented School bags and stationery to 100 students of the weaker sections on Wednesday, September 15, 2021.
The programme was held at the Model School (Government Junior High School, Telpura) and was chaired by the Secretary (Education), Govt. Of Uttarakhand, Mrs. Radhika Jha, who was the Chief Guest on the occasion.
An important part of the curriculum at The TonsBridge is the Community Service Programme – which ensures that students are not alienated from the real world. Our students genuinely believe that getting involved in community service teaches them to be compassionate and understanding human beings.
The students are initiated as early as the primary years and engage in community service activities at least once a week. While the Primary School students are entrusted with issues such as water conservation, hygiene and care of the environment, the Middle and Secondary level students engage in tasks like teaching ancillary staff, working with community schools, imparting adult education. Regular Student exchanges between our students and the village students are encouraged through sports activities and cultural programmes.
The TonsBridge School Donates Rs. Five Lakhs to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund
As part of its social responsibility, The TonsBridge School donated an amount of Rs. 5 lakhs to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund on April 29. A cheque for this amount was handed over by the School’s Chairman Mr Vijay Nagar to the Hon’ble Chief Minister Mr. Trivendra Singh Rawat at the latter’s residence.
The Chief Minister appreciated the gesture and bestowed Mr Nagar with the title “Corona Warrior of the Day”.
Mr Vijay Nagar informed the Chief Minister that a very important part of the education that the School provides to its students is the realization of their social responsibility and, believing in the adage “teaching by example”, the School has always tried to alleviate the suffering of the poor and needy by contributing in cash as well as in kind.
