Healthy students perform well in their academics. We at NPUSPTA understand the importance of wellbeing of our member students. Students are vulnerable and sensitive to many diseases and since they are in classroom together with many more pupils, risk of spreading the infections are very high. Complete closure of schools and colleges during COVID-19 pandemic is an eye opener for everyone to witness how students are vulnerable.
Apart from this student are also subjected to risk of accidents and injuries. Almost all students use some means of transportation to commute between school and home and frequency of accidents in our transportation system is quite high.
Also, many students are passionate about sports and games and are actively participating and training every day. It is very common to have injuries and not only frequency of injuries is regular but intensity of some sports injuries is also high.
Considering all these vulnerabilities and risks students carry we at NPUSPTA are providing them with Health and Insurance cover for free. Although we are strongly advocating for student safety at school premises but unable to prevent any health and injuries risks student may exposed to. So, through this initiative we are trying at least to mitigate any financial burden on parents arising from treatment and medical expenses of the student.
