Good hygiene is necessary for preventing the spread of infectious diseases and helping children lead healthy lives. It also results in better learning.

On 16 July, a Covid vaccination drive was conducted by the local health department for the school students.

Videos and PowerPoint presentations were carried out in the school to create awareness about good hygiene among the students of the school. Poster-making and Essay writing on hygiene and cleanliness were also taken up.

Environmental hygiene was also promoted by involving the higher classes in the cleanliness drive that took place in the school campus under the supervision of Mrs Ashoo Verma and Mr Sachin Sabe.
