CARING AND SHARING
It’s our desire that today’s children should know about the supreme sacrifices made by the brave soldiers to safeguard our nation’s integrity. On the eve of Independence Day, we dedicate this day to the brave men of The Armed Forces.
We believe that true education lies outside the four walls of the classroom and the real experience, which leaves an indelible impression on the young minds. In our endeavor to sensitize our students towards the extreme sacrifices made by the sentinels of our nation we conduct a special assembly and visit every year to the Base Hospital Delhi Cantt. to meet the wounded soldiers admitted in these Hospitals. The students express their gratitude and respect by presenting them with fruits, flowers and cards carrying good wishes.
The N.C.C unit of our school is making continuous efforts to infuse values and discipline in the cadets. It teaches them a sense of duty and responsibility towards our society and nation. It also trains them to lead a disciplined life.
N.C.C cadets attend North Zone Camps at various locations located all over India.
Diabetes Awareness and Prevention Education
Health awareness activity was conducted for students of classes 6th and 7th on 19 Sep 2019 in the library of Salwan Boys School. The activity was conducted by HRIDAY (Health Related Information Dissemination Amongst Youth) – an NGO which works with Arogya World, a US based non-profit organisation striving to change the course of chronic disease. The aim of the programme was to encourage adoption of increased physical activity and healthy eating habits in school children.
The activity was based on diabetes awareness and prevention education. With the help of Power Point presentation the students were made aware of the effect of junk food on their health and their school lives. The students were explained that their suffering from ill health can lead to lack of concentration, and inability to work efficiently. This would adversely impact their studies and social life, and may lead to problems in later life such as Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels which can lead to cancer, heart related problems, stroke and so on. The students were given tips to stay fit and healthy by being physically active, eating fresh fruits, healthy food and drinking lots of water. The students listened attentively to the lecture and pledged to improve their eating habits.
