April 6, 2019: As per CSBE direction, Upper TCV School arranged a talk on POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) on Friday for all the teachers. The aim of the program was to create awareness among the teachers, management and other employees about sexual exploitation in school so that our children are better protected.
The speaker invited for the event was Mrs. Ngawang Tenzin la from the Mother and Child Care Desk under the Health Department CTA.
With PowerPoint presentation, she spoke in detail about the various aspects of child abuse and negligence; how to spot the signs and signals of child abuse, reporting procedures, tips for talking to children about child abuse, preventive measures and legal consequences of child abuse.
She urgently called for setting up of a POCSO committee in school to carry out awareness program on POCSO Act in the campus. The talk was an eye-opener to many staff members!
