POWER ON to Forbid COVID 19

Educator's Corner

Everyone dreams to have a fuller, meaningful and happy life. To lead a healthy life, a person must be fit and fine in all aspects: physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

One bright Friday morning of March 6, 2020, Ms.Aprila Anne F. Lomboy, assigned nurse in Barangay Banengbeng, Sablan , Benguet, discussed on the basic protective measures against Corona virus to all kindergarten to Grade 6 pupils of Ebbes Elementary School. She mentioned that POWER ON is the best way to get rid of it. P- stands for practice cough and sneezing etiquette. O- obtain information only from verified sources. W- wash hands properly and regularly.

E-eat nutritious foods and stay healthy. R- refrain from going to crowd during events especially if sick. O- only use mask if necessary. N- no to handling/eating uncooked foods especially the wilds.

She also explained that acquiring a healthy life demands consistent habits and disciplined life. Always maintain cleanliness to avoid the risk of communicable diseases. Balanced diet is also of great importance. Take in proper and appropriate amount of nutritious foods to strengthen immune system. Exercise regularly to maintain physical fitness. She ended her lecture through a Hataw Dance Exercise and demo on proper hand washing.
