SEWA (Social Empowerment through Work Education and Action)
Support the growth of students in a holistic manner to prepare them for a responsible and committed social life.
Empower those under our charge with skills, ethics, and values that will shape them into consummate human beings.
Wellbeing ensured by educating them to work in the physical, mental and emotional plane though multifarious activities that will boost the sense of worth of themselves and others in the society.
Aim to instil a strong sense of action for the good of the community wherein our students emerge as individuals independent and interdependent.

Apeejay School through many academic years has been following the activities, likened to SEWA, with the aim to develop a whole person in their intellectual, personal, social, and emotional growth. Learners engaged in this programme are expected to be life-long seekers and through experiential learning develop as active citizens, and, caring and compassionate humans. Interact activities, with visits to old age homes and orphanages, social service activities such as spreading awareness against use of plastics, maintaining cleanliness in school and in adjoining areas, Girls Guide club distributing dust bins to local vendors, undertaking Go- green awareness walk in tandem with Interact club, Nature club planting trees in pots to promote green environment, Each one Teach One programme conducting academic and non academic classes after school, for the economically and socially challenged children, the regular members of Apeejay Anand Children’s Library; Project Citizen Club, sensitising about consumer rights. Besides distribution of books and clothes, blankets to underprivileged children frequenting our school regularly and other needy members of the society, and, partnering with KMCP School have been some of the outreach activities undertaken on a regular basis.

Social Service takes learning beyond the walls of the classroom and sometimes even beyond the boundaries of the school, building bridges with the authentic and real world in meaningful and positive ways. The adoption of a village named Purandil in Shantiniketan, Birbhhum District of West Bengal is one example, which Apeejay School, Park Street, has embarked on with an earnest sense of responsibility. Here, customary visits to the village by students ranging from classes 7 to 12 accompanied by teachers, is a usual occurrence. Active interaction with villagers and beautification of village homes, tutoring on cleanliness practices have helped is establishing a healthy and a friendly relationship between the villagers and Apeejay family. This paved way for opening of a library, and donating books in the vernacular for the children of the village, building a tube well with governmental permission, where in a large amount was donated to make the mission successful. This project remains a continuous programme.

Therefore, the school fosters amicable relation to develop in between teachers ,students and all other staff of Apeejat school community; hence to address instances of minor or major strife and conflict related to bullying, an anti-bullying committee has been formed functioning in all classes under the guidance of an umbrella body comprising students and teachers to ensure a happy and peaceful ambience in school, through pro active and amicable discussions. Also noteworthy is the fact that ours is an inclusive school that encourages differently abled children to comingle with the regular ones and involve them in different activities in school. These children are special to us and are dealt with love and affection.

All students of classes IX to XII are expected to participate in socially committed programme around the year to achieve the main objective of directing children’s mind in constructive activities with positive outcomes through creative and critical thinking. With the inclusion of all activities described above they take whole hearted responsibility of organising the Art Mela always conducted on 26th February, in a very big way at Apeejay House grounds. They duties range from assisting in framing invitation letters to distribution of these to various NGOs; from collecting donations from all class children to supervising and distributing colours, T-shirts or umbrellas for painting to thousands of children assembled in The ground; escorting the judges and managing the little kids alongside their teachers who are ever present in the entire process till the end. This has augmented self-confidence and self-esteem of our children and a sense of camaraderie with the visitors from other schools and NGOs.
Another objective of the social service programme has been to bring out the interdependence of all human beings and our dependence on the environment in this shrinking global village. Examples illustrated make it indeed evident that we have been working in the lines of CBSE guiding principles. To boot it can be added that performing arts therapy through Theatre and Dance has quite successfully affected a harmony of body and mind. Despite art forms being different the children benefit by learning co-ordination skills, team work, creative co-operation, original thinking and imagination, and, the therapy acts as stress busters and anti-depressant.

Hence social empowerment is all about social or community service; that can include environmental, civic-responsibilities or democracy or health and fitness related projects. Here it is pertinent to speak of Yoga classes, Sukanya project promoting self defence, karate and sporting activities both indoors and outdoors such as chess, carom, basket ball, Table Tennis, Judo, , Volley ball, kick boxing, cricket, football d Roller skating to name a few that are an integrated into the school curriculum. With no less pride can we announce that our children have excelled in different sports winning gold, silver and bronze medal in Interschool, sate level and national level.

The concept of service to the community has been upheld by Apeejay School, Park Street religiously as a policy.

PARENT TEACHER MEETINGS are an essential area of school dynamism where the parents and the teachers interact to know the child better by mutually discussing various issues that need attention in everyday life

PARENT CONTACT DAY Every Friday parents are expected to visit their ward's class or any other class that they wish to and this enhances confidence in the school that they have put their child into. As an extension of parent contact programme, we invite parents to be a part of the School Assembly and ultimately the school system becomes transparent to the parents.

OPEN HOUSE These weeks for parents is an interesting activity where they observe the teaching patterns and also the perceptiveness of the same in the students

PARENT BUDDY SYSTEM It has worked out very well for the school. The parents (non-working) mothers are complimented for their PEDAGOGIC SKILLS and are given a chance to teach. The system motivates and boots their confidence

PARENTS INTERFACE WITH SCHOOL Interaction of School with parents through different modes like open house system, orientation programmes, parent buddy system and scheduled parent teacher meeting are encouraged both in a formal and informal method, implementation of School activities and annual curriculum plan.

PEER EDUCATOR SYSTEM April is a time for the corrections of the Board papers and the schools necessarily extends help to the CBSE board by allowing deputed teachers to leave as examiners for the purpose. It is the beginning of the session and a lot of activities are on in the school. Yet the school continues the normal schools with the help of PEER EDUCATOR SYSTEM calling upon the ex- students to be mentors and facilitators till the teacher resumes duty. It boosts the confidence of the students who brush up their knowledge for future growth and makes them realise the worth of teachers in being capable of maintaining discipline and transacting knowledge.

WAVES OF CHANGE The CBSE in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), has introduced the 'National School Sanitation Initiative' with the aim to inculcate good sanitation habits among the school children in order to acquaint, inspire and celebrate excellence towards School Sanitation at the national level. Since a long time it was being felt that a massive activity oriented awareness generation and internalisation of the new vistas in education in India is needed and hence in this perspective the "Waves of Change (WoC)" program has been conceptualised. Waves of Change Programme aims at making the nation aware of the quality and the kind of educational & institutional reforms as well as the entire gamut of educational initiatives taken up by CBSE. It gives an impetus to the all round development of the school children by making them aware of the changing aspects of education and new employment and entrepreneurship vistas. WOC highlights “ The Education Beyond Books” and celebrates excellence through scholastic and co- scholastic learning's andshaping of the life skills. Our School has a yellow rating meaning our initiatives and steps for implementation of sanitation are “fair”.

GREEN POLICE Our school work very close with the administration in West Bengal.Both the Park Street and Bidhannagar police station has been kind in deputing Green Police to aid the traffic awareness system during the school hours

INTERACTION WITH ALUMNI The schoolinteracts with its alumni regularly. The school maintains an alumni directory and a blueprint of all the communications becomes part of the school system. They are active in helping the school in organising various events and also from time to time hold orientation workshops for our present students for career related issues.

WORKSHOPS FOR TEACHERS/STUDENTS International institutions in the city like British Council,Goethe Institute and USIS extends its support to the school and organises workshops and training programmes for the faculty and the students.

SUKANYA PROJECT Apeejay Schools, Kolkata have taken measures to empower the girl child in the face of existing violence and danger that a girl may have to face. Sukanya Project, a self defense training for girls, has been initiated in our school from November 2015. As per the CBSE directive, girls from classes 8 to 11 are trained by in the art of self defense. It is a routine programme that is taken earnestly by the school and its candidates.
Sukanya Project falls under the well intentioned programme for girls undertaken by West Bengal Government. Personnel from Kolkata Police visit the school on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week and the session of rigorous training lasts for one hour in the morning or afternoon in accordance to the timetable. The outcome of the training is already evident in the enthusiasm of the girls who with broad smiles and eager visages, in their smart uniforms of blue track pants and white T-shirts, troop down to the basement where the programme is held.
Security and protection form the basis of wellbeing and happiness, which is the birth right of every citizen and that has become scarce in the modern day society. Girls are most affected and hence this is one way by which Apeejay School wishes to restore the balance.
