Dear all

On the occasion of ‘World Cancer Day’ i.e on 4th February 2011, Mr. N.K Bhattacharya from CANCER AID SOCIETY talked to the students of the school about the need and importance of cancer awareness.

The World Cancer Day is a global observance that helps raise cancer awareness among people and tells about ways to prevent, detect or treat cancer at an early stage. People, government and NGOs work together on World Cancer Day to help the general public learn more about the different types of cancer. The talk was very useful and interesting and several facts about cancer were highlighted.
The following preventive measures were suggested:

  • Avoid smoking.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol.
  • Avoid taking too many antibiotics.
  • Avoid very spicy foods.
  • Avoids stale foods and ghee.
  • Avoid taking spoiled fruits and vegetables etc.
After the talk, forms were distributed among students to create awareness around their locality regarding the Do’s and Don’ts to fight this dreaded disease. Students of all the classes participated enthusiastically and they were able to collect huge money to donate to the needed people. Amount of Rs 1,53,350 /- was collected in the school from the students of classes UKG to XII . A draft of Rs. 1,53,350 /- was handed over to the society on 22 February 2011.

Events like these keep the youth informed about the good and the bad of the times. E-club salutes the spirit of those who are courageously fighting this disease and of all the students too, who took the pains to collect donations and hence contribute significantly towards this genuine cause.
