Happiness is evading all of us because of various reasons. Whatever may be the reasons, but, nowadays governments, private organisations, IT companies and schools have set up special ministries, departments, specially designated staff, training, classes in pursuit of happiness.
City’s St Peter’s International Residential School located at Dhulapally introduced recently “Happy Hours”, between 3 pm and 3:30 pm every day for the 280-plus students in the school. They have a school radio called “Happy Hour”.
Children sing, speak, recite poetry, tell jokes, give amusing facts, information during that hour on their School Radio. Students sit in their class and listen to them. Thus, they want to break the monotony of studies from 9 am to 4 pm and refresh students.This class is in addition to games period, which most schools have.
“We have heard of a school in Delhi doing the same thing. And we are only following that small thought of theirs,” shares Saroja Reddy, director of St Peter’s International Residential School.For those students who can’t deal with their stress, periods like Happy Hours come as a refreshing change.
