School Swachhta Campaign : 1st to 15th November 2015

Swacchta , that is , ‘cleanliness’ is a basic human value that has to be inculcated and constantly reinforced among our students, so that cleanliness becomes an integral part of our total personality.

CBSE Result For School Swachhta Campaign 2015 :

As one’s respect for others is directly linked to how we maintain the cleanliness of our immediate surroundings, it is therefore, important to promote good health practices and observe personal hygiene in every home, school and local community. Only then, this becomes a way of life.

The government also envisions that every school in India should have toilets. Schools are being supported since the programme’s inception, and new toilets are to be constructed, which would include separate ones for girls.

For the school cleanliness drive to achieve its desired goals at the earliest, and in a sustained manner, the Board requests all School Heads to inspire their staff, students and other stakeholders to fulfil the National Mission to provide a clean, healthy and safe learning environment for all their students.

The suggested activities to be conducted between 1st to 15th November 2015, will enable schools to take the mission to their local community, thereby fulfilling a wider, national goal.

A. Swachhta Art Exhibition :

This is a sustainable project for the whole school -an inter house activity conducted by the teachers in charge, led by the School Head.
1. Students brainstorm and come up with ideas to decorate all the school walls and toilets with attractive art work and useful messages about the importance of hygiene and sanitation. They will also come up with 5-point checklist to be put up outside the toilets about how they should use them and practice good personal hygiene.
2. All areas of the school premises are to be divided and allotted House -wise for supervision. This is done in rotation throughout the year.
3. To begin with, set aside 2-3 days to get the whole school premises cleaned properly and paint the compound and toilet walls with bright pictures and messages. Invite parents to view the art exhibition.
