Dear Parents

Greetings

WRINKLES SHOULD MERELY INDICATE WHERE THE SMILES HAVE BEEN.

                                                                                                     -Mark Twain

Each year, the International Day for Elderly is observed around the world on October 1st.  It is a United Nations designated day to focus on the well-being of the elderly people.The UN General Assembly designated October 1 as the International Day of Older Persons on December 14, 1990. 

Senior citizens globally have been the worst-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic as experts have said. They are the most vulnerable with age-related comorbidities. In these unprecedented times, loneliness and mental health issues of the elderly people need special attention.

Following the approach of improving the lives of elderly and to make them feel special, RKS has taken initiative to instil in our students love and respect for the elderly people of the society.

As elderly people in the family can get quite lonely even in a room full of people assometimes they can’t hear properly or follow conversation. To show your loved elderly family member/members that you really care, the following activities are to be performed
