Forests are the reservoirs of life on earth. Save forest save earth “Plant trees save life”. Hence we observe the Forestry week i.e. 14th to 20th July every year. A grand week long celebration of Aranya Saptaha was organized with competitions for different classes.    

Waste is harmful for health and the environment. Hence to make the students learn not to produce waste materials and if formed some productive material can also be created from it. Thus students of class VI actively participated and made beautiful flower vases, wall hangings, show pieces etc with the waste materials. They were awarded with prizes and certificates for creating Best out of waste.

Creative Poem writing competition was successfully conducted for the students of class VII and VIII. Students penned their ideas and thoughts on paper, based on the topic ‘Environment’ as the theme idea.

Increased activities of hunting and poaching made many animals became endangered and extinct. Hence to make the students realize the impact of tourism on animal world, a debate was conducted on the topic “Tourism in core and buffer zones of our National Parks is harmful to the nature”. Class-VIII students participated and spoke on this sensitive issue.

On the concluding day a collage competitions was conducted for class-IX and X on the topic “Raise your voice not the sea level”. The students spread the message to everyone present through their collages.
