Eco-friendly Dussehra celebrated at Spring Dales
Setting a precedent, Spring Dale Senior School hosted eco-friendly Dussehra celebrations – the festival of victory of good over evil – for its students of classes I and II, by constructing an effigy of Ravana, the legendary king of Lanka, from recycled waste materials to urge the masses to take steps to prevent environmental degradation.
Students presented colourful and lively enactments related to Dussehra. To ensure a pollution free environment no crackers were put inside Ravana’s effigy instead sound effects were used to give the students a feel of crackers being burst. Students were sensitized about the importance of Dussehra and the need for making all celebrations safe and pollution-free.
Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said, “It is very important to educate the children about our culture and heritage. Such celebrations leave an indelible mark on the young impressionable minds.”
Dr. Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, President, Spring Dale Educational Society, lauded the efforts of the little ones. “Such events not only enhance students’ awareness about our diverse culture but also impart the message of unity and brotherhood,” they said.
They added that Spring Dales believes in making children aware of India’s history and rich heritage. “To inculcate moral values in the children and to commemorate the importance of historical events, all the festive occasions are celebrated in the school with great enthusiasm, fun and gaiety,” they maintained.
