Himachal school likely to enter Golden Book of World Records for its anti-tobacco campaign
SHIMLA- On this Tuesday, as a part of anti-drugs campaign, a school in Himachal Pradesh, probably, set a world record of flying 7,730 paper planes in just one minute. All the planes were inscribed with anti-tobacco messages. The anti-drugs campaign was launched in November 14, 2016 and students have conceptualized over 7,500 painting and messages since then. The official confirmation of the record is still awaited and the school is hopeful of entering its name into the Golden Book of World Records.
With this achievement, eighty students of the Moginand Senior Secondary School in district Sirmaur broke the record of Maria International School of New Zealand. In the previous record, 87 children of the school had flew 3,622 paper planes in one minute. All eighty students of Moginand School were members of the Scout and Guide Unite.
The purpose of the campaign was to discourage tobacco consumption in youth and their indulgence in drub-abuse.
It is important for young generation to stay away from drug. We are doing a campaign against drug menace and today I am very happy that we have set a world record to send a message against drugs,
said Abhijeet, a participant in the campaign.
The school hopes to receive the official confirmation in next 10 to 15 days.
