Auckland House School dedicates a day to environment and sustainability
SHIMLA- As the celebrations continue yet another thrilling and entertaining day was seen at Auckland House School for Girls where everyone learned an important lesson that a nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
The day started with an environment workshop based on the topic “Biological Diversity and Sustainability” for the future of mankind. The resource person for the workshop was Dr.Vaneet Jishtu, a scientist at the Himalayan Forest Research Institute who made students aware about the environment issues and what measures can be taken to save the planet and various species before it is too.
It was followed by power point presentations in which five schools participated and both categories students shared their insight to save the resources before it is late and gave message to go green for all and be responsible citizens.
Other than that Model making fresh cum dry flower arrangement and foliage arrangement competition was also organised where students displayed their creative talent. Theme for all the competitions was related to environment and use of green energy.
