Road Safety Programme

Roads today have become extremely unsafe especially for pedestrians. Everyday there is news of road crashes. At Tagore International School, we aim to make our students aware about all aspects of responsible road behavior. As a road user each member of the Tagore faculty must adhere strictly to all traffic rules and also spread the message to all. Responsible road behavior should not be an alien term to our students but a part of their daily lifestyle. 

In our school, we have been having workshops on responsible road behaviour regularly. We have tied up with PVR NEST in this effort. We also celebrated road safety day in school on 20th February 2015.

"A Steer To Safety Project"
A road safety workshop by Mr. Muktesh Chandra, head of Delhi Traffic Police Department on 08 October 2015

A seminar on responsible road behaviour was conducted by PVR NEST in association with Delhi Police and Michelin India in India International Centre on 08 October 2015. 

Our school, who is also an associate sponsor for the 'Champions for Change' program led by PVR NEST, also participated in the seminar. Schools from all over Delhi had come to discuss plans to curb road rage and to make their students more road safe. 

The schools introduced their projects and how they would implement them. The projects ranged from technical support to making roads disabled people friendly to simply creating awareness in and around schools.  Our school aims at creating awareness as well as building a road safety park on the terrace. 

The plans of the schools were documented so that the progress could be monitored when the students met next. 

The chief guest for the event was Dr Muktesh Chander, Special Commissioner (Traffic). Also joining him were Ms Rima Chibb, an education media strategist, Mr Amit Bhatt and Dr Subodh Lal who are closely associated with the champions for change program. 

Dr Chander addressed the audience and said that road safety cannot be brought in a day and that it requires a change in attitude first. He asserted that the schools should not enact their projects for the mere sake of being a part of the champions for change program but because road safety is a growing epidemic. He also said that in the age of technology one can effectively use their mobile phone to inform the police about people not following traffic rules by making videos and clicking photos. 

The seminar was indeed enlightening and highlighted the importance of road safety in all senses. We must not be in the impression that we would be safe even when we don't follow the rules as atrocities don't knock at your door before coming.
