Like any other school, mine also has a number of clubs and every student should compulsorily be a member of a club. I preferred to join the Interact club. The unique feature of this club is that, there are no structured activities; instead it looks for new avenues for interaction. This gave me a lot of opportunities for interacting with people both inside and outside our school campus. As a part of the club activity, we interacted with the school canteen staff and also offered them help. One of the most enjoyable interactions we had was with the little ones in kindergarten. We guided the children in their activities, which brought back fond memories of our kindergarten days.

We also visited an orphanage and spent a lot of time interacting with the inmates. We distributed gifts and other things which we had collected from our schoolmates and neighbours. It was quite a different experience to learn about their lives.

Thus the activities of the Interact club gave us a lot of knowledge about society and also gave me an insight into my life and thinking.
