OBSERVANCE OF NATIONAL DE-WORMING DAY

"National De-worming Day" was observed in the School on 8th August, 2019 in accordance with the initiative taken by C.B.S.E. and the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Government of Tamil Nadu.

Ms. Susila, the Staff Nurse urged the students of all classes to be cautious about personal hygiene and sanitation to avoid infections. She said that young children are more prone to be infested by worms. She imparted valuable advice on personal hygiene to the students. She highlighted that students should avoid walking barefoot on the road and keep nails short and clean. She also added that consuming fruits and vegetables after thorough cleaning and washing hands thoroughly with soap and water before eating and after using common restrooms, playing and even going outside can keep germs at bay.

The Students were sensitized about the benefits of De-worming such as preventing Anaemia, increasing immunity and improving brain and body metabolism.

The De-worming tablet 'Albendazole 400 mg' was administered to every student. They were advised to drink plenty of water or ORS and consult a doctor if any complaint persisted.

Two Government Officials visited the School and appreciated the School for diligently observing the Day and encouraging students to understand the significance of 'de-worming'.

'Mop Up Day' was observed on 16th August, 2019 to compensate for students who missed the National De-Worming Day.
