Growing Fast—St. Joseph’s High School, Wadala
The entire atmosphere of the school has been refashioned to constantly remind students, teachers and visitors about their environmental duties. Right from charts on all the walls to little reminders to turn off taps and lights, an ecological consciousness is on display all over the campus. In terms of implementation, the students and teachers have divided themselves into issue-based groups to deal with each component of their school environment.
We were especially impressed with the students’ innovative use of their rather limited campus space, and the fact that they have managed to involve the entire school in their green campaign. We came away from this visit feeling certain that the right attitude is all it takes to make a difference to our world.
