The Environment Club of J.H.Tarapore School organized a fun filled activity day on 28th June, 2023. The theme was ‘BEAT PLASTIC POLLUTION’. This aimed at sensitizing the students about the harmful effects of plastic and following the principle of REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE. Classes I TO XII took part in various competitions ranging from making posters, collage, mobile stands, products made from newspaper, paper cups and plates, masks depicting endangered organisms to Ted Talks on the topic ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’.
We also installed a ‘Recycle Station’ in our school portico by joining hands with the ‘Koru Foundation’. This is a non- profit organization which aims at finding sustainable solutions to our civic and social problems. For this, bins have been placed which are differently labeled for collecting different categories of wastes brought to school by the students on a daily basis.
The summer project of the Environment Club was to collect mango seeds for the ‘MISSION MANGO’. The students collected 40 kilograms of mango seeds. These seeds will help in the growth of grafted mango saplings, which is a citizen’s movement to help the farmers and also make India the biggest exporter of mango in the world.
