Ekadaksha Learning Center for Children with special needs

What we do - Ekadaksha Learning Center Chennai - By Stephen Eastop

Christmas celebrations 2019 at Ekadaksha Learning Center, ChennaiMary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on....CHRISTMAS DAY.....Ekadaksha was decorated festively and beautifully for Christmas with two lovely Christmas trees and a Manger depicting the birth of Lord Jesus. The weather this Christmas was a cool and relaxed one which made everyone get into the Christmas and holiday mood:-).

The teachers who planned this whole event - Komathi, Saraswathi and Poovarasi - did a great show of the story of the birth of Jesus. Children depicted the characters by dressing up and enacting. At first, the parents of Jesus introduced themselves followed by Baby Jesus blessing all of us. The Shepherds then entered along with their sheep to keep Jesus safe. The wise men made their presence gifting baby Jesus gifts of life. Christmas is all about angels and happiness. Sai Vaishnavi was the beautiful Angel dressed in white who blessed the children with love and joy. The children who were in the audience were also given a chance to give a surprise gift to Baby Jesus of an artwork done by them. When the angel arrived, children could interact with her through touch and happiness. Every child and teacher was given an opportunity to be part of this special programme. 

Christmas is always on until our Dear Darling Santa Claus pays a visit to dance and have fun with the children. This year's Santa was flanked by two of our little ones. Once Santa took the floor, there was no looking back. Most of the children wanted to dance with Santa or hold hands. It was indeed a joyful time with Santa's belly shaking laugh...Ho!Ho!Ho!..After this breath taking fun, snacks was served which was polished off by everyone. Christmas carols filled the Center with the love and delight. Click this link to see Ekadaksha's Happy Merry Christmas. 

When we think of Christmas we think - Christmas tree, decoration, Lord Jesus, Santa claus and of course....CAKE...The Experience (Pre vocational) group had a cupcake baking class with Miss Kavya Akka who loves baking. The whole process of baking was conducted from adding the ingredients, mixing to baking in the oven and decorating. These delicious cakes were served to the whole school and wow, it was a yummy treat for all of them. Click this link to see Ekadaksha's cake baking class. 

The Remedial children at Ekadaksha also had a celebration of Christmas. Decorating the tree is an activity all of them love to do and they do with great care as well. One more thing they love to do is posing for photos. So Santa Claus visited them, gave them yummy gifts to eat and then each of them got a chance to pose with Dear Santa right next to the Christmas tree. What a pleasure indeed. Christmas carols were played here too while the children bonded with eachother. There was a very touching moment during this point. A boy who got disturbed with music was crying a lot. All the other children surrounded him, pampered him and gave him all their love. This little boy then stopped crying and was happy to be there. It is these moments that we cherish forever. This is what Christmas is - Spreading love to all your loved ones. Click this link to see Ekadaksha's lovely Christmas.
