K Arul, Joint Director of Industrial Safety and Health, advised teachers to show extra care and provide moral support to children rescued from child labour.
Addressing a Children’s Day event at the Police Recruits School (PRS) grounds here, Arul also said that such support would encourage students and give them positive vibes. In addition, he also advised the teachers to identify the specific talents of the children so that they could develop the same with help from teachers.
Urging the students to help other children who are forced to work under the age of 14, Arul requested students to immediately inform the National Child Labour Project (NCLP) office at the Collectorate if they came across such information.
“When you give information, the department will help such students and provide them with the education and training like you receive,” he told the students.
More than 250 students from 17 special schools from Coimbatore and Tirupur participated in the event that was jointly organised by NCLP, Coimbatore and Sulochana Cotton Spinning Mills Private Limited.
