Peace Education Classes
The school has introduced peace buiding sessions in Primary that took place every working Saturday. The focus of these workshops was on peace building because we know peace building must be developed, fostered and supported. Our goal was to help in the development of young people as peace builders and to raise the visibility of non -violent conflict management.
The school has established its own Recycling Unit in its premises. The school has been able to establish a process of reprocessing waste paper for reuse. The papers are collected from the waste locations in school and then sent to paper recycling unit. At an average of 50 A-3 size sheets are produced daily. The recycling unit has been able to produce invitation cards, letter heads, writing pads, envelops for in-house use and this year onwards report cards for class IX and XI will be given on the recycled paper made by the unit.
During this academic session the school organized two collection drives :
1. Winter clothes for the street people. The donations were given to NGO Goonj
2. Kerala Relief Fund- the proceeds were given to Kerala House and Goonj to be sent to the site.
