In a bid to foster the health and well-being of its students, DPS Sushant Lok organized a vaccination camp on its premises for grades Nursery-II on 11th May, 2018. The camp, part of a series of camps to cover all classes in the school, was held under the aegis of Dept of Health Haryana and WHO as part of the Government of India mission to eradicate Measles and Rubella.
The day saw a large turn-out of more than 450 parents who were extremely appreciative of the drive. The camp was graced by the presence of Principal Medical Officer, Civil Hospital Gurgaon, Dr. Pradeep Sharma; Deputy CMO Dr. Neelam Thapar; Dr Meenakshi Singh representative of UNICEF; Senior. Programme Associate, CAP, UNICEF India, Mr. Shivram Raghurajan; and other distinguished members from the media and medical fraternity. The camp was a huge success under the capable leadership of Principal Ms. Sunita Nagpal and her dedicated team of teachers.
Earlier in the month, as part of the first phase of the vaccination drive, a camp was held for students of classes 3-5 and 9-10. Yet another camp is scheduled to be held on the 19th of the month for grades 6-8.
DPS Sushant Lok has once again reaffirmed its commitment towards community development by becoming a small but significant contributor in this national campaign.
