Dominic Savio School, Andheri: Getting Down and Dirty

July 26th, 2011

Dominic Savio High School Andheri was host to the Green Line team yesterday. Having won the prize for the 'Best Community Initiative in last year’s Green School campaign, we were excited about coming back to a school that is so active in environmental issues. The school's eco-club of the school comprises students from the 7th, 8th and 9th standards. They were, not surprisingly, accompanied by all of their 10th standard buddies who were part of the eco-club in the last year. The entire group of more than 60 students made for a very interesting session, with plenty of interaction, questions and answers, and a sense of growing awareness, responsibility and excitement!

From the second we introduced the boys to this year’s theme of ‘waste management’, they were gung-ho about everything; the plan for the year, the task at hand, the problems and subsequent solutions, and the need to make a society that does not look to others for solutions but finds solutions by itself.

The first exercise that the boys will be conducting in the school will be a Waste Audit, a system through which one understands the amount, nature and actual methods being followed to reduce, reuse and recycle the waste that is created in the school. Its going to be good fun for the students and teachers who do take part in this activity, and our suggestion is to involve as many classmates and others as possible in the project. In fact, the students have been proactive already, and from what they tell us, are already doing a good amount of work in their societies and colonies!

We wish the school the very best in this year’s Green Schools Campaign, knowing that with the smart children over here, the activity is going to be a grand success… month after month. We thank Ms. Sarita who has been a constant help right from last year, and is doing a great job at heading the eco-club here.
