Spring Daleans join the bandwagon of anti-AIDS crusaders worldwide seeking complete
eradication of HIV
The students of Spring Dale Senior School under the aegis of the Health and Wellness Club of the school joined the bandwagon of anti-AIDS crusaders in seeking complete eradication of HIV on the occasion of World AIDS Day celebrated globally, the theme for this year being ‘Getting to zero; end Aids by 2030’.
Observed in the school in the form of a poster-making activity, the event witnessed eager participation of student volunteers, who wanted to contribute to the noble cause of spreading awareness against the deadly disease that has claimed millions of lives worldwide.
Armed with Norway sheets, chart papers, colouring pens, pencils and paintbrushes, the students churned out one informative poster after the other to spread awareness against the HIV-AIDS menace, which has also taken many Indians and Punjabis, particularly of this border belt in its spate.
Talking about the activity, Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that while the school regularly held talks and organized expert lectures on the issue of HIV-AIDS, this activity was based entirely different from the ones usually held in the school as it entailed voluntary participation of students. “It was heartening to see students volunteer for the cause of spreading awareness about HIV-AIDS and its prevention, through this activity,” he said.
Dr. Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that already the school was doing its bit in spreading awareness about HIV-AIDS by regularly holding seminars and debates on the topic.
They maintained that the event was instrumental in spreading awareness among the students and teachers about HIV-AIDS and its prevention. “A majority of our students are already involved in spreading awareness about the malady among various segments of the society through skits and plays,” they said.
