In consonance with this noble thought, schools and institutions across the NCR region celebrated this week with their unique set of activities virtually. The activities were planned with a motive to make the week fun, learning and experiential for the pupils involved.
DPS RNE Ghaziabad made an attempt to create awareness by sensitizing students towards the importance of road safety by celebrating virtual National Road Safety Week from January 12, 2022 to January 17, 2022.The program was initiated by the school Principal Mrs Pallavi Upadhayay who addressed the students thereby reiterating their role in following road safety rules & creating awareness about the same. It was followed by an array of activities conducted at different levels ranging from grades I to XII.

At MRG School, Rohini ‘National road safety week’ was observed from the 11th to the 17th of January. The students, after enjoying animated videos about road safety, participated in a conversation with the class teacher and a peer group to share their experiences and views. Students also made banners and posters explaining traffic signals and various road safety standards, followed by a show-and-tell activity. The purpose of these activities was to show concern for people and their lives rather than to take them for granted. In order for students to be responsible road users, they were educated on the subject of road safety.
The Shri Ram Wonder Years, a pre-school in Rohini organized ‘Pretend Play’ using the Immersive view along with Road Sign Puzzle. The activities were organized for the students of ‘Nanhe Kadam’ as it helps in shaping the attitude and behavior of the young learners- ensuring they become responsible drivers, passengers, pedestrians and riders in future.
