GENDER SENSITIZATION

The challenge of social justice is to evoke a sense of community that we need to make our nation a better place, just as we make it a safer place.    

Marian Wright Edelman

We in the school have always reinforced that a healthy person is one who is physically, mentally and spiritually healthy. In fact, we also ensure that students be sensitized to gender so that they understand the inequality in the way people of different genders are treated and can put this to use.

Gender equality emanates out of the advancement human rights and is a fundamental aspect of democratic citizenship. It belongs to the basic and universally recognized civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights. Infringement of such rights hinders societies from achieving the goals and benefits of development. Such issues are taken up at common forums where the children, the parents and teachers are all part of it. Gender sensitivity in education is not intended to put one gender head of another. It is instead aimed at providing equal access of opportunities to both genders.
