TOPIC – “OUTER TEMPORARY TO INNER INFINITY – LIFE BEYOND THE FACE VALUE”
Mental health is not a destination, but a process. It’s about how you get along with it and not where it leads you. World Mental Health Day celebrated on October 10 each year is a day dedicated to raising awareness and promoting mental health and well-being. The theme for this year as set by the World Foundation of Mental Health is ‘Mental Health is a universal human right.’ To mark this day, the students of classes XI Q and XI R presented their class assembly on the topic: ‘OUTER TEMPORARY TO INNER INFINITY – LIFE BEYOND THE FACE VALUE’. “Make choices which are healthy, not only for your body, but also your mind.” It is essential to realise the importance of not only a healthy body, but a healthy mind, heart and soul. To embrace one’s inner self is like taking one step towards achieving the purpose of our existence. Let’s embark on this journey of clearing the ambiguity about the transient nature of the external world in our minds as we find a balance between inner infinity and outer temporary.
