Inculcating a healthy lifestyle in our children has been a tough challenge due to their underprivileged backgrounds. This is detrimental to any child’s physical and mental health, resulting in irregular attendance at school, higher drop-out rates and frequent complaints from parents about the child’s ill-health.
In order to enable a smooth transition between two opposing lifestyles, we ensure our students are counselled to be able to accept and change for the better.
There is systematic monitoring on immunization and de-worming of the children. Dental, ENT, pediatric and gynecological check-ups are held monthly. Medicines and first-aid kits are distributed regularly.
Teachers help identify any emotional or behavioural problems in their students and refer them to the counsellor who works with individual students. Multi-specialty camps are also conducted in the community twice a year.
We introduced the nutrition Programmememe as our students come from low income group families and often miss out on the necessary food that their body requires to grow healthily. A hot meal is provided for all the primary students and a nutritious snack for all the beneficiaries.
