A Blood Donation Camp was organized in our school on 11-09-18 .This was the fourth blood donation drive that was organized in our school. One might wonder as to why a school should have a Blood donation camp. In any school children are told about many concepts like altruism ,honesty, cooperation etc.But almost always all this remains in theory, we thought parents and teachers should set an example of altruism in the form of donating blood .Hence this annual activity.
This Event also gives an opportunity for the children to understand firsthand about blood, blood circulation and blood donation. Children come up with appropriate posters and quotes for the event. It also helps in big way to do away with fears, myths and misconceptions related to blood donation.
No doubt it takes some efforts to convince and bring prospective donors but that is also a very educative experience for us.
This time a total of 16 person donated blood .If may not be out of place here to mention the Dr Sanjeev Kulkarni President of our institution has donated blood 110 times so far.
Old parents Girish Subnis and Santosh Oswal have donated more than 25times. And existing parents Nijaguni Hooli,Poornima Kulkarni,Poornima Gothe,Aparna Inamdar ,Jendi and many other have donated several times .Teachers of school namely Pratibha moushi,Tejasvini subnis Sunita Pachange ,Uma Hiregoudar ,Daisy,Greeta and Vasant Kanavalli have donated more than 3 to 4 times.
