‘Cleanliness Fortnight’ in schools Circular

Across the state, schools will celebrate ‘Cleanliness Fortnight’ from September 1-15 as part of the national level Swachh Bharat campaign.

Student ambassadors will be appointed in every school, along with teachers, to create awareness about the various projects taken up during the fortnight. Right from keeping the campus clean to holding arts and essay competitions on the topic of cleanliness, schools have been asked to engage students with various activities to stress on the need for keeping themselves and their surrounding clean.

Nand Kumar, principal secretary, school education department, wrote to his subordinates that “cleanliness is not work, but a good habit”. He added that the in the first week of the fortnight, schools must focus on engaging with teachers and students on the topic of cleanliness. On September 1, all schools have to administer an oath for cleanliness followed by a parent-teacher meet on the same topic.

The same week is to be utilized by schools for undertaking a detailed survey of their premises and highlight areas that need to be cleaned up. If there are some repairs needed to facilities (toilets, hand washing area etc), then the process for that must be started. At the micro-level, schools also have to tell students to take care of their immediate surroundings. For this, each student should ensure that his/her place inside the classroom is clean which will ultimately ensure that the entire classroom is clean.

Kumar has also asked education officials to organize competition at the panchayat/taluka/district level for cleanliness of school campus and toilets. Schools have also been asked to hold debates, lectures by experts, drawing and essay competitions on the topic of cleanliness.

Schools have been asked to dispose of all old paperwork, furniture and vehicles that are simply taking up space on campus and adding to the clutter. Management will have to ensure that schools segregate dry and wet garbage before disposing it off in the manner prescribed by the local authorities.

Personal hygiene is also a part of the campaign and schools have been asked to teach kids the proper way to wash their hands. Kumar wrote that every student must be taught the eight-step process of washing hands and the importance of doing it before eating food and after using the bathroom. Schools have also been asked to propagate the need for clean uniforms and how it has to be washed using soap.
