DPS STARTS CAMPAIGNING AGAINST CHILD LABOUR
Delhi Public School, Jammu took an initiative to spread awareness among the masses in order to fight back the menace of child labour. In this context, students of the school enacted a street play in Wave Mall Jammu. They highlighted the issue, pain and plight of the child labourers. In this play, causes, need and suggestions were made in a heart touching manner. Children not only highlighted the dilemma and agony of child labourers, but they also tried to provoke the silent conscience of the so called educated class which is also responsible for the engagement of these children as labour or domestic help in a thought provoking manner.
An Art exhibition was also put up on the same theme. In this exhibition, posters and paintings with heart touching messages were displayed. These were prepared by the students of various classes under the guidance of a renowned artist and the senior Art teacher of the school, Mr. Suresh Sharma. While appreciating the efforts of children and teachers, Ms. Meenu Gupta, Headmistress, DPS Jammu stated that we should regularly perform such activities, in order to awaken the students and the society to curb the menace of child labour.
While congratulating the students and teachers, Ms. Ruchi Chabra, Principal, DPS Jammu stated that the purpose of alround development of the children can only be fulfilled if our students understand their social and moral responsibility towards society. She appreciated the overall teamwork of students and teachers.
