On this day, volunteers who have died or injured themselves while at work are also paid tributes.
With regard to the Photography Day, In the year 1826, French photographer, Joseph Nicephore Niepce had taken the first permanent photograph of all time.
'Details create a big picture' Photography is not just an art but an application of durable images that capture emotions and moments.
St Agnes CBSE school also recognised these two important days. The day commemorated with a meaningful prayer service by thanking all the volunteers who provide their selfless service and doing a noble cause on humanity. To mark this occasion the students of grade VIIIC along with their teachers Nayana Fernandes and Sonia D’Souza visited ‘Hongirana’ in Bendur Mangalore, a home for the aged. They spent some valuable time with the inmates by entertaining them with songs and games. Prizes were given to the winners by the students from their generous contribution. The inmates too were cheerful and lively and created an aura of fun and happiness. The nurses who provide their selfless service in this home were honoured at this juncture. The school and the students contributed provisions as a part of charity to the in-charge members of the home.
To mark the significance of Photography Day a number of competitions and activities were organised for the students. Grade I to III had to pose with their favourite pet and click a picture, grade IV and V had to capture the best click in the garden, grade VI to VIII to capture their best pose with a scenic beauty of background. For grade IX and X an activity to create their own studio in the classroom was organised. The students participated enthusiastically and presented their best clicks. Here is the list of winners.
