National Deworming Day

National Deworming Day at DGS – 7 February 2013

DGS Children were involved in a nationwide deworming program that had them receive free deworming pills courtesy of the government. All children and staff were given deworming pills as a way of eliminating worms from their bodies. Worms often affect  child’s education and thus it was also important on this day to highlight the importance of good overall hygiene.

The free pills were given out by the DGS teachers who had earlier undertaken training for this event. The deworming was also open to other children from the area who do not attend school at present.
