Explaining issues related with puberty to students
A workshop on the issues related to puberty in girls was conducted on November 6 and 7, 2019 at Kulachi Hansraj Model wherein the resource persons, Rajkumari Tankha and Upasana Kaura guided the students on various issues related to the puberty stage. This is the time when they come across both physical and emotional changes. The girl students were also informed that it is a healthy sign and not taboo as most of them had been informed by uneducated and ill-informed sources around them. The resource persons also told them that they don’t have to shy away from the transformations they have in their body due to hormonal changes. They were made to understand this stage as very important in their lives. They were also told to consult their mothers and teachers for further guidance and advice. The girls interacted well and got their queries solved by the resource persons. The workshop was interactive and proved enriching for the young girls. The mantra to deal with challenges is to be happy and accept any change with pride and dignity.
