Personal Safety Program For Parents By Arpan

A highly informative one hour “Personal Safety Program” was conducted for parents of 1st to 4th grade students. The workshop was conducted in the school auditorium on February 15, 2018 by Arpan, a child-centric organization that empowers children with adequate knowledge, attitude and skills to prevent instances of child abuse. Ms. Sujatha Doble, Ms. Anjana Salunkhe and Ms. Safina Sheikh were the resource persons who ably conducted each of the 4 sessions by giving guidance to the parents about the various types of mental and physical abuse that children may be subjected to in their daily lives. The workshop was organized in order to seek parents’ consent for conducting child safety workshops for the students of Amrita Vidyalayam. The parents understood that creating awareness about this sensitive issue is the need of the hour and heartily thanked the management for taking such an initiative.
