Once the great man said – “Let us sacrifice our present so that our children can have a better future.”  Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.

With an aim to establish and promote the importance of good healthy habits, a medical check- up camp was organized in Vikhe Patil Memorial School, Pune for the students of standard 1 to 10 in the school premises. The health camp helped us to spread awareness about the importance of routine health check-up among the students. For VPMS, Pune a comprehensive ‘Routine Health Check-up’ program is planned by the management annually.

The health checkup for the academic year 2023-24 was arranged under the able guidance of the Principal Ms Mrinalini. It was done as per the CBSE guidelines. The health checkup was ably organized by Mr Sanket Bhalerao a team member of Dr Agarwals Eye Hospital from 7 th August to 17 th August 2023. Specialist doctors of all disciplines visited the camp. The team members were Dr. Sushil Kumar Hare and his assistants from Manipal hospital, Dr.Ashish Gadekor, Dr Shivani Alurkar and Dr Rutuja Kalbhor from Clove Dental, Dr.Nikhil Rishikeshi, and his team members from Dr Agarwals Eye Hospital. The various assessment done in the health check-up were as

1. General Information (including Vitals, Height and Weight).
2. General Appearance (Head to Foot examination).
3. Respiratory System.
4. Cardio Vascular System.
5. Nervous System.
6. Eye and Dental check up.

The program ended with an overall report by the doctors about the health of our students. It added that they were healthy and could improve in certain areas. The school issued a health card to each student to keep a record of their health status. Post check-up, details about the corrective actions required for every student was entered in the health card which will be shared with the parents so that they understand their child’s health and can accordingly give necessary care as suggested by the doctor. The basic health information of the students was updated on the web portal as well.

The students from all the sections thanked the team for rendering a selfless free checkup service and presented them with a greeting card. The school medical department with the support of the management and staff took the responsibility of planning and assisting the health camp. The Principal Ms Mrinalini, on behalf of the management, staff and students of VPMS Pune extended a heartfelt gratitude towards the team of health workers for their time and consideration towards our school and for conducting the medical check-up and making it a successful one.
