Talking Common Medical Emergencies in Schools

A session on ‘Emerging Paradigm of School Safety’ was organised wherein the session taught that educating students on health should be given the highest priority, not only for their health but also from the perspective of education. A health emergency may occur in any School at any time. Thus, schools have a major responsibility of being prepared for any such emergencies and for this - the schools must follow the School Emergency Response Protocols (SERP).

Prevention Risk Reduction Management

The most interesting learning from the session was that even though life is full of disasters which may come to us at any point of time, we should live life cheerfully as assuming life to be Mathematics.

Multiply Celebrations, Divide Problems, Subtract Sorrows & Add Joy

Schools must offer safe, caring and supportive learning environment. The Workshop was attended by Ms. Sayeeda, TGT (Biology) along with seven students of Class XI.
