Hand Washing Hygiene Posters for Schools!

Instructions for using this resource:

 This resource was put together using google image results for hand washing and ‘coughs and sneezes’. It is aimed at 11-18 age group because this is the age of the students that I teach. However a similar search on google would allow you to find your own images and resources to paste into a document like this, print off, laminate and stick around your own school.



The first two images are self explanatory, as is the fourth. However the third image addresses the differences between boys and girls in terms of hygiene and I think is very clever. HOWEVER, you will need permission from your Head Teacher, before putting this up in the boys toilets as the play on words in the poster can have various connotations. The head teacher in my school has not allowed it to be put up and although I may not agree personally, I realise that her decision is taken with the best interest of the school at heart. Having said this I feel that it important enough to share so that each individual school can judge what is suitable for them!

I hope you find it useful!

Cyclone Fani Damage, Loss, and Needs Assessment

The extremely severe cyclonic storm 'Fani' of the 'Hood of the Snake' was the strongest tropical cyclone to strike Odisha since Phailin in 2013. Cyclone Fani made landfall at about 8:30 am on 3 May 2019 between Satapada and Puri with a sustained surface wind speed of 175-180 kilometres per hour (kmph). It unleashed copious rain and windstorm that gusted up to 205 kmph, leading to fatalities, destruction of homes, and swamping of towns and villages. Fani left a trail of devastation in large parts of coastal Odisha, with the seaside pilgrim town of Puri being the worst hit.
