Doctor's Day

“Not all heroes wear capes. In the midst of the novel coronavirus pandemic, the real heroes wear scrubs.”

National Doctor’s Day is observed on July 1st in India, to commemorate the birth and death anniversary of a respected physician and the second Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy. At the time when India is in the midst of a pandemic that has claimed scores of lives in this nation, our health care professionals have saved many a life. While we are tucked away safely at home, with the privilege to self-isolate from the virus minefield the world has morphed into, doctor’s are out there, fighting for the lives of individuals infected by the virus. The above quote couldn’t be more apt.

On this occasion, the students of Imperial Heritage School got together to pay reverence to these noble people through various activities. The little ones of Pre Primary created small doctor bags and had a show and tell session on what doctors do. Grade I students made beautiful Thank You cards to appreciate the work done by doctors and Grade II students dressed up as doctors and spoke about the work they do. Students of Grade III students made Being Healthy posters on what they could do to avoid going to doctors and Grade IV students spoke about the different doctors that one visits in the hospitals.

The importance of doctors in our lives was showcased through all activities, and appreciation for what they do.

God cannot be everywhere so He sent the Doctors with excellence and selflessness
