Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures Workshop 2021
Oral health plays a significant role in a child’s overall health. At Apeejay School, Pitampura, we recognise the importance of good oral health thus an oral care workshop was organised in collaboration with Colgate on 24th March. The main motive of this workshop was to acquaint the students with the importance of a healthy oral care routine. Through this workshop, we were able to spread awareness about the correct oral health habits and basic hygiene. The workshop was very interactive, quiz and the engaging aids captivated the students’ attention and interest while they learned about the proper way of daily oral care. The students learned good oral hygiene habits, right techniques of brushing were explained with the use of a tooth model and a toothbrush.
This workshop has certainly instilled the importance of night brushing and maintaining good oral hygiene through interactive modules and activities. We hope this would help in developing good habits at an early age.

A very thought-provoking topic, relevant to the present time during the pandemic, was dealt with utmost care by the well-known psychologist and counsellor, Dr. Jyotsna Bhardwaj. She has a charismatic personality and concepts woven into stories, highlighted the mental health, physical and emotional health of the young ones, thereby trying to bring a sea-change in their attitude to infuse positivity and happiness in them.
The young ones were head over heels to share their experiences, queries looking for some unanswered questions in their subconscious mind.
She encouraged everyone to have half an hour - 'Me Time' where one could introspect into the personality and bring out the best in oneself by being grateful to the petty positive happenings around and promise to work upon the shortcomings to become a better person every day.
She highlighted the mantra for happiness.

An old practised remedy by our grandmothers but forgotten in this modern era.
During the Question-Answer session, she brought to the forefront a very pertinent aspect that emotions need not be controlled but should be managed.
