World Health Day Observed 
The lockdown might have restricted the students of Delhi Public School Patiala from attending regular school activities, but their spirit was as high as ever as the students of class IV-V participated in the World Health Day Activity. The students expressed their gratitude to the medical fraternity by making expressive and colourful cards. The images in large numbers to the class teachers at the end of the day and each card reflected the respect and love that the children felt at this time of crises. The children conveyed the message that all the cards they made for the World Health Day would reach across all the hospitals of the city when days would be better and safe for their school to reopen.
Principal Mr.Santosh Shukla on behalf of the entire DPS Patiala Family conveyed his wishes to all the health workers who were working around the clock to save the precious lives of the sick.
