International Left Handers Day is observed on Aug. 13 every year by many left-handers since 1976, Left-handers Day was declared by the Left-Hander’s Day Club on August 13, 1997. It was made to annually celebrate certain people’s sinistrality and raise awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed. It celebrates their uniqueness and differences, which are from seven to ten percent of the world’s population. Hundreds of millions of left-handed people in today’s society have to adapt to use right handed tools and objects.
There’s also a more serious side to the day, which spreads awareness about the special needs of left-handed kids. Also, left-handed people may be more likely to develop schizophrenia.
On occasion of Left Handers Day SSPM Day School had organise the poster making & Hand writing competition for left handed students.
Poster making competition was held for Junior group (Std V to Std VII). All left handers from Std V to Std VII participated with great enthusiasm. They exhibited their talent through their art work. The theme for the competition was “E- Learning”
Hand writing competition was held for Senior group (Std VIII to Std X). All left handers from Std VIII to Std X participated enthusiastically in the event. The students were asked to write one page in the best of their handwritings. The topic for competition was “Any Famous Left Hander”
