Cempaka International School Cheras students Esther Liew, Elyssa Hah, Ezra Ng & Kirttna Solai organised a talk on hand hygiene as part of their IGCSE Global Perspectives Group Assignment. The talk entitled “Healthy Habits for the Younger Generation: Hand Hygiene” was delivered by Dr. Meenakshi Valravan, a Consultant Paediatrician at the KPJ Kajang Specialist Hospital.
The informative session was held on the 28th of March 2016 from 9:30 am to 10:30 am in the North Hall and was attended by Cempaka Cheras Primary students and teachers. According to Esther Liew, the topic aimed to raise awareness on common diseases as well as to teach the children on the simple healthy habits. Assisted by nurses, the children were then formed into groups where they were each taught how to properly wash their hands.
Uzair Zafran bin Badroel Ridwan from Standard 2 Terra enthused, “I learned that we need to keep our hands clean using soap and water. We need to keep our hands clean so that we won’t fall sick easily.”
“Today I learned how to wash my hands. I need to wash my hands at least six times a day. I will be strong and healthy if I keep my hands clean, ” adds Olivia Lye Wai Xin from Standard 1 Mozart.
