It could get difficult to manage children when they have summer holidays especially true for working parents. Sending your children to a summer camp may be a good way to solve this problem. Summer camps are usually a lot of fun. Here at NALANDA School activities are designed in such a way that children can enjoy thoroughly. Also, as many children will attend such camps, there is a lot of scope for your children to interact with them socially and make lots of friends. Such camps may also help your child to cultivate a hobby.
Each child is unique and has varied interests. The job of a parent is to explore these interests and hidden talents and provide a platform for the child to improve. Summer camps do provide such platforms for children. The activities that are included in such camps are many. There may be crafts, sports, acting, dancing, singing, storytelling, science projects and a whole lot of information. To make it more interesting most summer camps divide children into different age groups and include appropriate theme based activities that are fun. These can help in your child’s all round development.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Community service programmes at NALANDA teach our children to think beyond their own lives and also help them develop a well-rounded personality. We help them to assimilate human-centric skills, knowledge and attitudes in the classroom, through which they can positively influence the lives of people beyond the school walls. Our community service programmes are designed to encourage civic responsibility and provide credible, significant service to the community. Having such a direct influence on the community at large establishes the sense that their efforts are necessary, valuable and recognized.
Community Service is given the same amount of reverence, attention and efforts as is given to other activities in school like academics and sports. Such programmes aim to turn children into confident, compassionate and quick thinking leaders. It also cultivates bonding, camaraderie and teamwork. Children can discover their hidden talents and experience the joys of giving.
