WIS Pawan Baug celebrates National Doctors’ Day

“Health is Wealth” being the Annual Theme  this year, Witty International School, Pawan Baug celebrated National Doctors’ Day by inviting renowned medical practitioners to the school for an interactive session with the Wittians. National Doctors’ Day is celebrated on July 1, all across India to honor the legendary physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy.

This observance fulfills a need to show that doctors and physicians are very valuable assets in our community. The celebrations are indicative of the respect that they command in the lives of their patients and thus obligate them to fulfill their responsibilities as we are indebted to their selfless service. As quoted by the Principal, Mr. Bijo Kurian, “Aided by modern scientific innovation, the boundaries of medical technology have extended to unimaginable limits. Nevertheless, even with all these technological innovations, the position of doctors in society hasn't diminished; doctors remain indispensable.”

Witty International School has always been instrumental in providing various health programmes by emphasizing on the age old saying, ‘A healthy mind in a healthy body.’ Dr. Aashish Bacchav,  Dr. Arvind Dhar and Dr. Saurabh Patwa impressed the students through their effective discourses on various health related issues.

Dr. Aashish Bacchav delivered an effective presentation on common eye ailments in children. The students raised thought provoking questions related to cataract, short sightedness, use of lens and even the relevance of Eye Yoga. Dr. Bacchav cleared all the queries raised by the students and he was very impressed with the inquisitive minds of the Wittians.

Dr. Arvind Dhar guided the students with simple steps that can be taken to promote healthy eating. The students were given a nutrition programme on “Changing the way we Eat.”. Dr. Saurabh Patra had an interactive workshop with the Wittians on House- tips on Management of Medical Emergencies. He demonstrated effective methods of first aid which involved management of asthma, seizures, Heimlich maneuver and much more. The session ended with a hearty vote of thanks to the experts for giving their valuable time to us and felicitation of the honorable doctors for their amazing contribution to our society.
