Oct 15, 2019
JAMMU: In order to commemorate the occasion of Global Hand washing Day on Tuesday, GD Goenka Public School, Jammu, governed by Om Prakash Bansal Charitable Trust, conducted an awareness programme for the students.
The children were taught the importance of keeping their hands clean to fight infections and keep away from diseases.
It was discussed at length with children that they miss many school days due to common infections which arise because of unhealthy hand hygiene. The theme was "our hands, our future". The children were also educated about the fact that good hand washing can prevent disease outbreak, reduce absenteeism from school and improve health care outcomes. The children washed their hands with liquid hand wash before having their meal.
Principal Rajesh Rathore appreciated all the Coordinators for celebrating the occasion and for indoctrinating young impressionistic minds with the lasting lesson of life on how to ensure good health and hygiene.
