Health Week

It always helps to start off the week with a healthy frame of mind. With this view, NPS, Koramangala celebrated July 11-15, 2011 as Health Week. It was aimed at circulating and promoting a healthy lifestyle in the primary years of schooling.

The school witnessed a thematic assembly about Martial Arts and benefits of exercise in daily routine. Dr. Dias was invited to talk to the students on importance of good health. Further to their regular classes of dance, yoga, physical education. etc., experts were invited to talk, demonstrate and have interactive sessions with all the students. Group exercises, aerobics were conducted.

Students put up PowerPoint presentations stressing on the importance of a balanced diet and the pitfalls of junk food. Teachers and students pinned up posters about healthiness, fitness and hygiene. They also wore badges expressing solidarity towards the theme.

Parents were involved in the project and had to send only nutritious food from home. Students with the help of teachers put up a fruit stall and encouraged the children to buy fruits of choice and taste. Proceeds from the sale were used to support charity.

All is all; the Health Week was successful in emphasizing the need to adopt a healthy way of life in today’s fast paced living. As Buddha rightly said, “To keep the body in good health is a duty, or else we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clean.
