Orison Swett Marden rightly said ‘We make the world we live in and shape our own environment’. A follow up session ‘Love thy environment’ was organized by Beyond Academics for Std II on 22nd Jan 2018 to encourage students to be concerned and work for a better environment.

The resource persons reinforced the 3 R’s i.e. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Students were asked to make different articles (Best out of waste) using paper or ice-cream sticks and bring them to school. The best article was selected and the student rewarded. The children were taken to the neighbouring institute ICT to show them the working of the OWC -Organic Wet- waste Composting machine.

One of our teachers, Ms. Alareen quoted,” It was indeed a good experience to know how compost is made.” The children received first-hand experience and learnt about composting and procedures to convert the same into manure.
