‘International Women’s Day’ was celebrated in our campus on March 8, 2016. Dr. Venkatesh Sanjeeva, Consultant Surgeon of Gastro Intestinal and Breast Surgery and Dr. Amitha, Paedeatricitrian from A.J. Institute of Medical Science were the two eminent speakers for the day.
It was an occasion for the members of the MCCS family to pause for a moment and reflect on ourselves, to appreciate how much has been done and what more needs to be done in the field of gender equality. Moreover, it was the day to acknowledge all the men and women in the world for making this world a better place for everyone to live in.
Dr. Venkatesh, in his address to the gathering highlighted the need for early detection, conservation and reconstruction about Breast Cancer and stressed on the positive thinking among cancer survivors. Dr. Amitha spoke on happy and healthy childhood and urged them to develop positive parenting pattern.
The significance of the Day was highlighted by the students of Class II. The theme given for the year 2016 “Pledge for parity” was elucidated. Role of women in a family was enacted by the little children. Their meaningful action and conversation was followed by a dance which made everyone sail in the memories of their individual childhood.
Children dressed up as renowned women personalities such as Mother Theresa, Kiran Bedi, Madam Marie Curie, Rani Lakshmi Bai, Kalpana Chawla and Saina Nehwal reminded the audience of their incredible record they have made amidst the hurdles they had to overcome.
The Vote of Thanks was delivered by Nidhi and Vidyuth of class II. The programme was a success as about 300 parents were the beneficiaries of the talk – the significance of the day by the students and health awareness given by Dr.Venkatesh and Dr. Amitha Rao.
