MCD school teachers get lessons on good hygiene practices

A 'Hygiene Workshop' was organised recently at the MCD headquarters here by independent body Global Hygiene Council for the teachers of the civic-body run schools. Around 200 teachers from all over Delhi participated in the event.

The teachers were encouraged to adopt healthy practices and impart the knowledge to their students.

"Since children spend more than 50 per cent of their time in schools, they should be well aware about contagious infections and diseases. All schools should proactively take measures to encourage students to adopt healthy practices," an official of the council said.

Experts are saying following simple steps like washing hands frequently with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds, coughing or sneezing into elbows, washing hands thoroughly after contact with a person who is ill are the most effective and powerful tools against many infections.
"Hygiene is a fundamental habit that can prevent illnesses," Delhi Mayor Prithvi Raj Sawhney said.
Narendra Saini, India representative, Global Hygiene Council said, "The aim behind educating the teachers is so that they can spread awareness amongst students as a student best learns from a teacher.
