Satyam House Chooses To Be Proactive

”Being Proactive is about taking responsibility for your life. You can't keep blaming everything on your parents or grandparents. Proactive people recognize that they are "response-able." They don't blame genetics, circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behavior. They know they choose their behavior.”

Being Proactive – as the value for the creative assembly, Satyam House commenced the yet another round of celebrating creative assemblies and decorating display boards.

For Display Boards, the theme, this time, was Cartoonsthe history of cartoons, e.g. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Tom & Jerry, Goofy, and many more. Students were highly excited to learn about the cartoons. Moreover, students, right from Grade I to XI, drew the sketches of different cartoons, coloured them, displayed them and passed a message through them. It was a great fun, indeed.

In the General assemblies, from Tuesday to Friday, students shared the thoughts for the day, News and Amazing Facts. Apart from this, students and teachers addressed the assembly on different values such as Being Proactive, Duty, & Patriotism. Besides, different videos and presentations were shown on these values so that students can enjoy while they learn.

One of the general assemblies, which was liked the most by all the students was on Thursday, when they were shown a presentation on the life of Walt Disney and his works before he became a great success by making Mickey Mouse and The Disney World Resorts. They loved to know that the great success story of Walt Disney began with a little mouse – Mickey. Through this, the message – Dreams Come True was conveyed to the students.

On Saturday morning, which is the most awaited morning for all the students, Satyam House presented the Creative Assembly on the Value – Being Proactive. Two students, Harshbhai (8B) and Joybhai (5B) presented a power point presentation (in the form of a dialogue) and two videos on how one can benefit by choosing a proactive way to life. Here, two small incidences of Being Proactive from the life of Gandhiji when he was thrown out of the first class compartment in South Africa; and from the life of H. D. H. Swamiji when he was spat on for a number of times when he came out of the river after bathing and how H. D. H. Swamiji without reacting went for taking bath every time he was spat on by a mad person until his mouth started bleeding.

Not only the students but even teachers were inspired by these incidences.
