Workshop – “I AM SAFE”
Classes 2 and 3
“Wisdom is giving the children their wings,
along with the rudder of awareness
to keep them safe from prying hands.”
Every child has the right to a safe childhood. By promoting safety, awareness and dialogue, we can prevent abuse from happening in the first place and help keep our children safe. To incorporate this awareness among the students K.R.Mangalam World School, Gurgaon organized a workshop “I am Safe” for the students of Grade II and III in association with Ms. Pragya Pandey, Expressive Arts Psychologist and Counselor at Fortis Healthcare, Gurgaon.
The workshop guided the students to know whom to trust and talk in different situations which happens in their day-to-day life through different activities. Ms. Pragya made the children conscious that they should not be touched inappropriately by anybody and stressed on the courage and self confidence required by the younger ones to understand and fight against it. While concluding the workshop the counselor patiently answered all the questions and queries of the children.
The workshop concluded well by making the children understand about good touch and bad touch according to their age. We at K.R.Mangalam World School, Gurgaon decided to sensitize the students through activities and stories and equip them to understand such situations and act smartly.
