Each school has been asked to assign a teacher to identify children below the age of five years.

The schools have been an active participant to the programme for decades, however, this is the first time children will take part in the polio drive.

To add to this, Head of Schools (HoS) have been asked to organise painting/poster-making, elocution, debates and essay writing competitions in schools, in support of the drive.
