Young Spring Daleans turn trash to treasure
Urge masses to cut down litter by making ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ a habit
In a call almost synonymous with the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan’ launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, students of classes I and II of Spring Dale Senior School, urged the masses to cut down litter by turning their trash into treasure and also showed them how to do so during INNOVATUS, an art and craft exhibition organized during the parent-teacher meet held in the school.
Employing waste materials, the students also gave the message of the need to conserve our ecology. “The entire junior wing of the school was turned into a wonderland with the help of masks and artifacts prepared by the students and their teachers. The students and their teachers also created a virtual fish aquarium on the walls of the junior section,” said Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School.
“It was a real treat to see chandeliers made of paper glasses hanging from the walls, tribal masks made from waste material creatively mounted on bamboo sticks already available in the school and stationery cartons and styrofoam boxes converted into pyramids,” said Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Educational Society. She maintained that this was in fact the best means of reducing litter, which would ultimately end up on the roads.
“The way the staff and students had worked to create something valuable from waste materials was not just intriguing but also awe-inspiring,” said Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Director and Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society. He added that event aimed at sensitizing the masses about the need to be frugal not just in terms of finances, but also to curb wastage of other resources and be sensitive towards nature to sustain the ecosystem.
