GLOBAL HANDWASHING DAY
“Wash your hands every day, to keep diseases at bay.”
The Global Handwashing campaign helps raise awareness about the importance of washing hands with soap and running water. It is also fun for children to get involved with this campaign. Keeping this perspective in mind and to inculcate this habit into our little mangalites, K.R. Mangalam World School, Paschim Vihar celebrated Global Handwashing Day on 14 October, 2022 with a goal to ensure that the children understand the importance of handwashing with soap and water. It is the easiest, effective and the best step that we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. A general discussion was conducted in the classes emphasizing the proper way of handwashing and the need to wash hands at regular intervals which would help them to lead a healthy life. The children of Pre-school and Pre-primary enthusiastically participated in the hand washing activities and understood the importance of “Hand Hygiene for All” highlighting the elevated importance of handwashing especially during the COVID-19 pandemic as a method to prevent the spread of the virus.
