World Health Day is celebrated globally each year on 7th April. The day marks the founding of World health Organization (WHO) and aims to draw attention to important health issues facing the world each year. Each year WHO creates a different theme for world health day and this year’s theme was “Food Safety”, and the slogan ‘from farm to plate, make food safe.’
An assembly at Pathways School Gurgaon took place to mark this day on the 22nd of April 2015(co-incidentally earth day). The students of 8-Y had created a very informative presentation which was displayed during the assembly. The presentation explained what world health day was, what the World Health Organization is and we were also shown a few extremely educational videos. 6-X had also prepared a small skit about the correct eating habits which was very helpful as well as entertaining. We concluded the assembly with all of us singing a song called, ‘I will survive’ (In the style of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”) about how to keep food pathogens away and be safe while eating.
This assembly was a huge success as now each and every one of us knows about how to keep our food safe and eat health to be healthy and fit. Our general knowledge about this issue and WHO has increased too! We hope to have more informative assemblies like this in the near future!
