I. SUPW- Socially Useful Productive Work And Community Service

"WE MAKE A LIVING BY WHAT WE GET, BUT WE MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT WE GIVE."- WINSTON CHURCHILL

Our students at Jamnabai Narsee School in their own little way give back to their country by making an effort to uplift their community through various community service programs. Jamnabai Narsee School believes that moral and ethical values cannot survive from one generation to the next if the only preservatives are text or studies. Awakening the children to be sensitive to the needs of others is considered to be an integral part of learning in our school. We are associated with the following NGOs and encourage our children to lend a helping hand via monetary assistance: Global Cancer Concern India, Association for the Welfare of Persons With a Mental Handicap in Maharashtra (AWMH),Swami Vivekananda Youth Forum, Homeless Street Children Project, The National Association of Disabled Enterprises, S.O.S. Children’s Village (Pune). The students of Grade IX and XII reach out to the children from municipal schools by sharing their knowledge with them and providing them academic assistance. Students of the ISC visit remote village in the Dahanu district and reach out to the underprivileged children there.

II. STUDENT COUNCIL AND JAM

The Student Council is entrusted with the role of leadership. Keeping in mind the ethos of the school, 'teamwork' is the most important mantra for effective management. It is a universal truth that 'teams always win', hence, the term 'we' is more significant than 'I'. 'Team bonding' forms a close personal relationship through frequent and constant association. Therefore 'team bonding' is a requisite for 'team building'- You have to place trust in your team members.

The Jamnabai Adolescent Mentor Programme is a peer mentoring programme that is unique to our school. The primary focus of this programme is for these students to provide emotional support to the student community. Through their availability to individual and providing valuable assistance to the Counselling Cell in special student programmes like the ‘Dare to Care Week’, JAM members truly become a bridge between the student Community and the Counselling Cell.
