Tagore International School East of Kailash- Road Safety 
Campaign 2019- Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow 

As concern for road safety and traffic negligence grows in India day after day, we need to train our students and through them the larger community, on rules and regulations that should be followed to ensure safety of all. Incidents of road rage and violence have become common headlines. To spread awareness and confront frequent malpractices students took to streets with plays, songs, slogans and jingles attracting the public’s attention and instigating action to subvert deviants.

With the Moto “Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow” members of the safety club held classroom workshops and training sessions to teach bus drivers road etiquette. They discussed parking vehicles, turning practices and evident indicators of safe driving. A new congestion relieving guidance practice for parents picking up their children from the school road was suggested and put in place. Students signed a pledge to follow safety standards and rules.

The hard work of students and the campaign amalgamated into a seminar conducted by the road safety club in partnership with Delhi Traffic Police Department. Mr. Abhishek Dutt (Municipal Counsellor South District), Ms. Shilpa Giri ( ACP, Delhi Traffic South East District) and Mr. Govind Sharma (ACP, Kalkaji) interacted with the students, answered questions and gave insight towards street side conventions and misconceptions. Students from Daisy Dales School, Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar, Gyan Bharti School, Saket and others showed their support for the cause, being a part of the august gathering. Connecting with a larger group of people through their outreach engagements, our students sure are ringing in the bells of change and civic sense.
