|S.O.C.H--The Society Of Caretakers of Heritage
While a school is an institution wherein the dissemination of education takes place, what sets Tagore International School apart from others in the field, is its constant endeavor to see through the impact of this education by creating opportunities for the young minds to apply the learning gained.
One such step in this direction was taken by ‘Dharohar’, the Heritage club of the school that created a separate group of the senior school students and decided to call it ‘SOCH- The Society Of Caretakers of Heritage . Through this initiative, these students were given a platform to become guides for their juniors, the students of class V and conduct heritage walks for them and their parents.
The volunteers from classes IX –XI became a part of this new initiative and post an extensive research carried out by them, they conducted the first walk for class V C on Friday 5 February 2016 at the Safdarjung’s Tomb. The group was successful in generating a great degree of excitement among the students who took the walk and were greatly praised by their class teacher, Ms. Shivani Sharma who also accompanied them. An annual heritage walk for the parents of the students has also been organised ever since.
