APS organizes a funfair ‘Fun, Food and Frolic’

The Armacost Psychological Society organized a funfair, Fun, Food & Frolic for the students of TSA Special Education School on Friday 6 November 2015. The fair was organized with the purpose of serving one of the most highly valuable and significant segment of our society.

The event began with welcoming our guests from the TSA Special Education School which consisted of the students, their teachers and parents respectively. The fair was filled up with various colorful stalls that had different activities buzzing in each. The stalls consisted of a photo booth which had a number of interesting and fun props for the students to play around with and use to click pictures. The pictures were clicked and printed on the spot, decorated into pretty handmade frames and delivered to the school the next day. Other stalls included the face painting and henna stalls, games corner, musical stop. In each stall the students got the chance to have fun, engage in physical activity and interact with the students of FCC. The students of TSA also had a dance performance which was followed by a dance session organized by active volunteers of APS, in which they encouraged the students to take the initiative and dance on the tunes of some catchy songs, in order to boost up their confidence, make them have some fun and polish their talents.

There was a counseling booth present too at which three faculty members from the Psychology department sat and provided counseling services to the parents and teachers who had a few concerns about the development, progress, upbringing and grooming of their children.  Another stall consisted of customized goodie bags and lunch boxes for each student, which were prepared by the volunteers and council members by generating a wish list from the students. The wish list was prepared by visiting the TSA Special Education School a couple of days prior to the main event; during which the students of FCC had spent some quality time with the students.

Other stalls present at the event were a food stall arranged for the parents and teachers of the TSA and the rest of the attendees of the event, from where they could buy fresh and delicious food on the spot. The staff of the vocational department of TSA Special Education School had also set up a stall at which they displayed the clothes that have been designed by them.

All in all, it was a day filled with excitement, fun and laughter that was a much needed break for everyone who was attending it. Most importantly, it provided an opportunity to Formanites to serve others in the society and show love, tolerance and acceptance for all those who may need it the most. This event also provided a great opportunity to the Psychology majors specifically, to interact with and spend quality time with children who have special needs.
