Van Mahotsav week celebrated by Grade I to VII at Witty International School, Borivali (2020-21)

WIS teams up for green initiatives


 Witty International School, Borivli celebrated Van Mahotsav Week, the Annual Tree Plantation festival in India with great aplomb and enthusiasm. The primary and secondary section students of WIS celebrated environment day with the slogan 'Go green'. They began the week by preparing slogans, banners and nature paintings as a part of the Enrichment Hour activity. Meaningful messages were put up all around on the importance of trees and how they are the 'Lifelines'.

The programme started with a group discussion by the secondary students on "Impact of Covid 19 on the Environment.” Students prepared a number of charts and posters depicting the imminent dangers we are facing due to destruction of trees. Reigniting the luminous halo of Mother Nature, students also came up with the brilliant idea of planting saplings on birthdays, an idea which had lot of potential.

As a part of the tree plantation drive, students worked on making their own kitchen herb garden using easily available seeds like tomato, coriander etc. Wittians also spoke about how they care about the plants at home. They resolved to take care of the plantations throughout the year. Principal, Dr. Jennifer Pereira quoted, “Trees have longed served humanity in one form or the other. On the other hand humans have only threatened their very existence. Now it is our turn to reverse the damage that we have caused and restore the balance between nature and man and the first step towards this change is to plant trees.”
