Celebrating Global Handwashing day at LCS
October 15 was Global Handwashing day worldwide. Global Handwashing
Day is "a global advocacy day dedicated to increasing awareness and
understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an
effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives." The theme
for this year was "Clean Hands For All".
Here at LCS we celebrated the day at the Elementary School morning
announcement. Students and teachers from Grade 5A performed a sketch
to remind everyone about the importance of handwashing.
The nursing team also went to all Elementary School classrooms to teach
handwashing. The learning experience included discussion in the classroom
and practical hand washing by every student using the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended WET, LATHER, SCRUB, RINSE, DRY
