Every year on 31st May, the world health organisation and global partners observe “World NO Tobacco Day”. To celebrate “World No Tobacco Day” in collaboration with Dharamshila Narayana Super speciality hospital organised a poster making competition on 12th May 2022 for classes 6th to 12th in the school premises. The annual campaign was an opportunity to raise awareness on harmful and deadly effects of tobacco smoke use and second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco in any form.
The overall programme was coordinated by school Anti-Tobacco committee. A team of doctors from Dharmshila hospital rendered their services for the cause. Doctor Kanika Sood, one of our MC members guided the students about the dangers of tobacco and its negative impact on health. As we know tobacco is the leading cause of respiratory disorders like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Tuberculosis and other lung disease.
The awareness programme aimed at reducing the disease and deaths caused by tobacco consumption which is the need of hour.
Students enthusiastically took part in the campaign and exhibited their creativity through drawing and slogan writing. Students also expressed their views by highlighting the problems faced by people who consume tobacco. The peer educator also sensitised and suggested various alternative crops which can be grown in place tobacco to generate revenue. This endeavour of students highly appreciated by one and all. Best entry will be rewarded on 31st May by Dharamshila Narayana Super Speciality hospital
