MR Vaccination Campaign Activities

On 16th October 2018 the SXIE B.Ed trainee teachers conducted a Talk and an Inter-house Quiz Competition for students of Std. 10.1 and 10.2 on the Measles – Rubella Vaccination Campaign. This activity was conducted to promote the MR Vaccination Campaign – a WHO South-East Asian initiative in conjunction with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of India to help students be prepared for the forthcoming MR inoculation programme to be held in School from 27th November 2018 onwards.

The activity started with a short power point presentation and included videos on the spread and causes of Measles as well as a ‘Government Awareness Campaign’ short film. This was followed by the Inter-House Quiz Competition which involved three rounds of two sets of questions ranging in difficulty level. There was a healthy competitive spirit amongst the boys and the audience were equally participative. The Quiz ended with a tie amongst Tagore, Kabir and Tilak house in the first place and Nehru house in the second place.

The campaign ended on a bright and hopeful note that India’s dream of eliminating measles and rubella will be realised by 2020.
