Our Activity was aimed on the children and teachers of the kindergarten school Bahçeşehir Koleji Diyarbakır Anaokulu Kampüsü. The 15th October we celebrated the Global Handwashing Day.

  • The teachers decorated the school with drops of Water and soap before the children arrived at school.
  • During the day the English teachers came to collect 2 classes at the time to educate and entertain the children in the theme of the GHWD.

    We wanted to make the children aware of the importance of washing their hands during the day.

  • The nurse came to talk to the children and together they discovered why washing your hands is so important.
  • The children talked about what happened if you don't wash your hands and about places on earth where washing your hands is not this easy. We also made the comparison to our own city, where not all children are as fortuned as our students.
  • After this brief discussion the children watched an informational cartoon (Pediyatri Okulu) about hand washing.

    Then it was time to get moving. Sitting still is only good for a short period...

  • The English teachers taught the children how to sing and dance on the music of 'The Wiggles', the song called ''The Wiggles Say, Wash your Hands'.
  • All the teachers and children went dancing when the song of Krazy Kuzins appeared on the big screen.
  • The teachers decorated the school with drops of Water and soap before the children arrived at school.
  • To put every thing learned into practise, the children played a game in the garden. They had to bring the water from one side of the track to the other side to wash their hands with water and soap.

    The class teachers were on this day extra informed on how to help the children to keep their hands clean. Together with the children they made a promise to do their best to keep their hands clean.

    Together we had a lot of fun this day, and we learnt a lot. Next year we hope to participate again with the school.
