On the occasion of World Sight Day-10th Oct, our children of primary class gathered to sensitize themselves and to feel, in a small way, what’s it’s like being “blind”.
Our children closed their eyes and tried to move around and do things. They also discussed influence of religion, socioeconomic status, steps to sign up for eye donation and volunteering to donate their eyes. Some of the reflections by the children were:
“I hit my head on the wall, it was literally like virtual reality!”
“It is so difficult to not be able to see”
“I promise to help the blind”
“I shall help the blind from now onwards”
On the whole, it was a real “eye opener” of a learning experience!
