Winners All!

It’s been an exciting six months, and yesterday, 18th March, was the high point of the Green Schools Campaign 2010-2011. With 12 participating schools and lots of great ideas, choosing the winners was really difficult! Nevertheless, here they are are:
                
Greenest School Award: Sacred Heart High School, Vashi
Greenest SchoolRunner up: St. Dominic Savio High School, Andheri
Best New Initiative: St. Joseph’s High School, Wadala

                             
The programme began with an overview of the campaign, followed by a session on waste management by Dr. Amiya Kumar Sahu (President, National Solid Waste Association of India). The winning schools were then announced by Fr. Edwin (Chairman, Maschio Foundation). Each of the winners also made a presentation on the green projects they are implementing in their schools. We were also privileged to have with us Prof. Jürgen Kleinwächter, a renowned international solar energy expert, who explained that creative thinking is the basis for developing new technology. Another important event of the day was the release of the short film ‘Beautiful Earth ‘, produced by GreenLine. 
  
The programme was an occasion for celebration for all the participants, as well as for us at GreenLine. We’re already looking forward to next year’s campaign! Congratulations to the winners, all the participants, and everyone who has helped make the first year of GreenLine a success.
