Tagore International School East of Kailash- Road Safety
Campaign 2019- Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow
A concern for on road safety and traffic negligence grows in India day after day. A rise in population and increased urbanization over the past 70 years, 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 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. With outreach unlike any other, the school community was blessed ringing in the bells of change and civic sense.
