TREE PLANTATION DRIVE by our students
“Planting a tree means planting a whole living system.”
K.R. Mangalam World School takes yet another step to connect children with nature by initiating a TREE PLANTATION DRIVE in the school premises in collaboration with Times NIE, Smile Foundation and Tropicana.
Nature Ambassadors from SMILE Foundation
The students from classes V to VIII planted the saplings by sowing them in large clay pots and placing them in freshly dug earth mixed with manure. They were acquainted with the common names of the saplings like Jamun, Neem, Ashwagandha, Guava, Amla and many more. The school gardener offered friendly tips on how to take care of the plants to ensure each sapling was carefully tended. All the kids were very enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyed the planting process bringing them closer to the environment. They were joined by the children from Smile Foundation which added to the community feeling of the event. The school Principal Ms Priya Arora gifted an air purifier plant to the young nature ambassadors from Smile Foundation.
We hope to make the movement an annual event to mark the significance of preserving trees which play a vital role in maintain the ecological balance.
