Cancer awareness session
St. Thomas Girls’ High School students held a session on the three main types of cancers affecting women, believing that the key factor in containing the incidence and mortality rate of cancer is awareness.
The presentation began with a street play followed by an informative video presentation on the formation and growth of cancer cells. Three interactive power-point presentations were also carefully woven into the play. The prime focus of the session was on ovarian cancer, breast cancer and cervical cancer. General questions on the disease were also thrown at the audience and every good answer was rewarded with sweets.
Other activities like collage making and group discussions were also held. The school has also created a blog.
