Workshop on girl child day-
On 24th January, a virtual workshop was organized by Himalaya Public Sr. Sec School regarding POCSO ACT on GIRL CHILD DAY .The Resource person was Justice Harjeet Singh by District Legal Services Authority North-Rohini District Court who gave an insight into different laws made for sexual offences of girls as well as boys under POCSO ACT and how child friendly judicial mechanism has been introduced for dealing with such offences. Students got a broader guidance about how to react and whom to call immediately in case of any harassment or cyber crime . He also briefed us about some gender neutral laws. By defining a child as any person below the age of 18 yrs, the POCSO ACT sets as gender neutral tone for the legal framework available to child sexual abuse victims. It was a wonderful awareness programme for all the teachers as well as students. It was also very informative and interactive session through which we got an understanding and came to know about different judicial mechanisms.
