Every year, Sophia High School, nominates students from the 9th standard to form the ‘Sophia Interact  Club’’ encouraging and motivating students to take part in this wonderful initiative. This club is one of the most active and enthusiastic clubs which works on different projects in order to help and reach out to people in need and make our society a better one.
Inspired by the activities of the seniors and the eventful past year, the new batch of  interact leaders were installed with the pinning of the badges to various office bearers and the Board of Directors, on June 22 in the august presence of the Principal, parents, teacher co-ordinators Rotarians, parents and peers in the Sophia High School auditorium.

The  guests gave the batch an eye-opening introduction to the functioning of the Rotary Club and Interact Club. Useful tips on taking initiative and working for social driven causes were also imparted.
Various projects taken up by our dynamic team of last year were shared  during the programme. The team had conducted tuck-shops, bake sales, old clothes and book collection drives. They co-ordinated the collection of food materials for the World Hunger Project which brought the whole school together under one umbrella.
This not only inspired but also motivated us to bring as many smiles as possible through our work and dedication. A rallying speech was also given to us by Principal, Sr. Alpana, reassuring us that she will always be with us, holding our hand, helping and guiding us throughout our entire journey.
