Global Hand Washing Day (October 15, 2015)
Global Hand washing Day is a once-a-year opportunity to increase awareness on the importance of hand washing with soap. The goal of the Health Department is to promote the need to wash hands and maintain healthy personal hygiene habits.
KG1, KG2 and KG3 students enjoyed an interactive and helpful activity with the school nurse, where they sang a song while learning how to wash their hands properly. Then they were asked to dip their hands into the color paint of their choice and stamp their hands onto a big poster board and later were asked to go and wash their hands.
Grades 1 till 5 enjoyed different kinds of awareness activities with the nurse and the SLO prefects. They learned how to wash their hands properly, then signed a pledge and took some photos in a frame designed for this occasion.
The aim of this event is to make every day a “Global Hand Washing” day in our school.
