We live on the most beautiful planet in the universe. Keeping our mother earth happy is our duty, hence a small group of thoughtful citizens have come forward to make a difference and to change this world to make a better place to live in.
We know that we are an integral part of the environment we live in and the solution to many environmental problems lies in our attitude towards environment. The best way to bring about a change in this attitude in society is through children. Here comes the Eco Club that plays an important role in creating environmental awareness amongst the future generation.
In view of this passion and zeal for keeping environment clean and to develop the qualities of leadership, self reliance and team work among the students, St.Vincent’s Eco Club, was formed.
“The good man is the friend of all living things” - Mahatma Gandhi
The club provides a plethora of activities to sensitize the children, the future generation to safeguard the environment and enables us to move towards a gener tomorrow.
The club is led by Niharika Dubey of std VIII as president and E. Reshma ofstd VIII as secretary under the guidance of our principal Rev. Fr. Johny Koyikkara CM and vice principal Rev. Fr. Esthappan CM.
This year our Eco Club observed the Environmental Day on June 5 by planting saplings in the school campus as an initiative of our former President Dr. A .P. J Abdul Kalam’s wishes and words as “Children should plant at least five trees and nurture them”.
To create awareness among the people regarding conservation of our biodiversity and ecosystem, students of the Eco Club exhibited placards insisting on conservation of natural resources and raised an awareness among the public to promote a cleaner and greener environment.
Students work under this ‘ECO CLUB’ with the following motives:
- Tree mission in our locality
- Keep our house and surroundings clean and tidy
- Use bio-degradable products
- Promote recycling
- Conservation of water
- Encourage renewable energy
- Spread awareness of the pressure on the environment.
- Engage water conservation and rain water harvesting.
The members of the club organized a field trip to the organic farm at Athur village to promote the goodness of cultivation void of chemicals to ensure a pollution free atmosphere.
Poster making competition on “Green World” was also conducted to cultivate the importance of a greener and cleaner surroundings for the present and future and to impart knowledge to the future citizens on our mother Earth on the difficulties she is facing,and the role we should play to enable her to lead a healthy life.
“Earth Day should encourage us to reflect on what we are doing to make our planet a more sustainable and livable place” - Scott Peters Hence this club has a great vision ahead as it is an “ENVIRONMENT SAVIOUR CLUB” and its prime focus is on how to keep the environment green and void of pollution, so that we can breathe healthily.
