SAFETY AND HYGIENE

WHAT STEPS DOES THE SCHOOL TAKE TO ENSURE PROPER HYGIENE?

It should be clean filtered air: The HVAC (central A/C) system has been designed by an ASHRAE certified HVAC expert. The system has diffusers (instead of vents) which reduce air velocity thereby resulting in substantially reduced spread of viruses. The system is fitted with fresh air (TFA) units which bring in fresh air from the outside. Fresh air is recommended as it minimises the spread of viruses. The system is further fitted with MERV filters which purify the fresh air and remove harmful viruses and bacteria. Periodic wiping down of frequent contact areas is done.

In the post COVID-19 world, the school shall meet/exceed UNESCO/WHO hygiene guidelines:

  • Encourage frequent and thorough washing (at least 20 seconds)
  • Hand sanitizers are placed in toilets, classrooms, halls, and near exits
  • The school is designed as per international standards and provides over 90 sq ft per child and socially distant seating provided in learning spaces.
  • Stringent food safety guidelines

  • Process of sanitisation for school staff prior to and after entering the school building.

UNIQUE FEATURES

What is the Shram Program??

At Vega we view social responsibility and resulting values as intrinsic values every child should develop. Engaging them actively from early childhood years will lead them to become proactive, mindful and productive citizens of the future. We believe that it is important for our learners to become self-reliant and mindful of their own environment & surroundings while thinking beyond themselves: their family and underprivileged & vulnerable communities as well. This was the reason we initiated the Shram Programme and integrated into the curriculum from Pre-Nursery to Grade VIII.
