“Cleanliness is next to godliness” - all of us have said and heard this phrase a number of times. We know this is as true as it can be, and cleanliness is essential for a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. Yet, a lot of times, we find not just our surroundings, but even our very selves, not in the best shape as far as cleanliness is concerned.
Maintaining personal hygiene and cleanliness is very important, and at The Heritage, we believe that earlier this habit is ingrained in a person’s life, the better it is. That’s why, we, as a school, always make it a point to teach our students about the importance of maintaining personal hygiene and cleanliness.
As one of the best schools in Dehradun, we are glad that we have been able to raise not only scholars, but also individuals who are incredibly self-aware towards cleanliness, and at the same time also contribute towards the cleanliness of their surroundings.
Here are certain habits which would instill personal hygiene among students.
At school, we encourage the students to maintain certain standards in their personal upkeep. Proper washing of hands is one thing that we aggressively promote, and we ensure that students wash hands every time they have a meal at school. Parents are encouraged to ensure that the same habit is followed at home as well.
Habits like bathing daily, trimmed and maintained hair, clean cut nails are often not talked about and are taken to be implied. But, it’s important to inculcate these things to cement such habits in the students for a lifetime. At The Heritage School, we believe that we do it just right for the students, by keeping a check on these hygiene practices of the students.
Dental Hygiene is also a very important component of personal hygiene, and we try to make sure that our students do it right. We push our students to ensure brushing their teeth at least twice a day to maintain good dental health. We also hold regular dental camps and checkups at the campus.
