5. We carried out a vaccination exercise of pupils against HPV

6. More awareness on water safety and water purification using Aqua Safe tablet application was encouraged on campus.

7. We dished out Afripad Sanitary Pads to old girls in the school plus some female teachers.

Children identified with fungal infection were advised and issued with Clotrimazole ointment cream.

Cases of Malaria was so prevalent in the course of this term and children were advised to ensure bushes around their homes are cut, empty tins or stagnant waters around homes cleared plus sleeping under treated mosquito nets emphasized. We administered drugs to malaria patients.
