Children are the most vulnerable victims of any form of hazard-be it natural disasters like flood, earthquake, landslide or manmade disasters like fire, terror attacks, and stampede. It is a well established premise that it is not the hazards that kill but unsafe construction, ill-preparedness, and lack of awareness that make a hazard into a disaster.
The young minds are most receptive to new ideas and need to be trained and made aware of certain basic principles that would not only save their lives but also being future citizens they play an important role towards nation building . Therefore, it is important to address disaster preparedness through fun activities in the school and promote the “culture of safety & preparedness” at a young age.
The goal of Disaster Management is to build a disaster resistant and resilient community, equipped with skills to ensure that the community members can come out of disasters unscathed.

VISIT TO LEPROSY CENTRE & BALKUNJ CHHACHRAULI
” We have a social responsibility, a constitutional opportunity and a moral obligation to help others”.
Every volunteer contributes a drop to the ocean of humanity, & it is certainly true that the ocean would be less without these drops. This was definitely apparent when on 16th July students from classes VI to X visited a leprosy centre at Jagadhri & a rehabilitation centre/Balkunj at Chhachrauli to donate necessities to their inmates.
Activity – Presentation on Road Safety from 20th – 24th May 2013
Traffic rules of the roads are both the laws and the informal rules that have been developed over time to facilitate the orderly and timely flow of traffic. With the replacement of ancient horse driven carts with cars and trucks, the speed of the traffic increased paving way for the need of smooth roads and yet smoother traffic. So, to curb the need of the smoother traffic, some rules were devised to assure that the traffic runs smooth. Almost all of the roadways traffic rules are built with devices meant to control traffic.
While Walking to School
♣ Always walk on the footpath only.
♣ Cross only at Zebra crossings, traffic signals, subways, foot over-bridges.
♣ At the signal lights, cross only on a clear green pedestrian signal
♣ When crossing between vehicles parked on the side of the road, remember that you are not visible to the moving traffic (because the parked vehicles may be taller than you). Stop as you appear from behind the vehicle and look for a safe gap before crossing. Remember, drivers need plenty of time to see you and to slow down and stop
♣ Never cross a road at a corner/curve, as the motorist taking the turn will not be able to see you in time.
♣ Running across the road is a bad idea, as you may slip and fall.
While going by bus
♣ Leave home well in time, so that you won’t have to run to catch the bus.
♣ At the bus stand, always follow the queue. Board the bus only after it has come to a halt, without rushing in or pushing others.
♣ While in the bus, shouting or making a noise is definitely bad manners. Such behavior can also distract the driver.
♣ Do not board or alight at a bus stop other than the one decided by the school. Never board and alight at a red light crossing or unauthorized bus stop.
♣ Always hold onto the handrail if standing in a moving bus, especially on sharp turns.
Students were also made aware about the mandatory, cautionary and informatory road signs.
