Tuesday, June 5th 2018: As an initiative to save and protect Environment the Student of Global Indian International School Chinchwad in collaboration with Green Thumb – An Environment Protection Group, Headquarters at Pune joined hands to observe the World Environment Day by committing to plant 8000 saplings around the school campus.
India is the global host of 2018 World Environment Day with “Beat Plastic Pollution” as the theme. Keeping this in mind, more than school children, teachers, school staff and parents joined the initiative to make their surroundings a cleaner and greener place.
Making the summer vacation meaningful, the school initiated this campaign in the month of May where many students came to school to render their services for planting of the shrubs. The efforts put in by the school teachers and students are commendable where not only senior children but the little ones joined the cause.
This area that has been identified for creating an urban forest is different from a lot of manicured landscapes. This will eventually grow and evolve naturally and the students will remain committed and responsible for this area.
Commenting on the initiative, Lt. Col. Suresh Patil (retd), Owner & Founder of Green Thumb said, “When children are made part of nature conservation efforts, it has a positive impact in their life and according to me, it is our moral responsibility to preserve our environment for the future generation to come. I would like to thank everyone who took part in this noble cause and GIIS School for extending their support. Being an environment-conscious organization, we will continue to undertake such initiatives which will contribute to further development of our communities”.
Dr. Amrita Vohra, Principal, Global Indian International School, Chinchwad said, “The focus of this activity was not only to sensitize students about the importance of this day but to make them responsible for these shrubs that they have planted. It will be the duty of my students to ensure that the plants are well taken care of so that this patch of land will grow as a natural forest with rare species. I am looking forward to the day when it is dense with plantation and my children can enjoy the nature trail and have their botany classes here.”
