Don Bosco's School, Matunga WASTES no time in auditing...

If you are under the impression that a group of oldies have come to do an audit of all of the finances of the Don Bosco's School in Matunga, wow, you could not be more wrong! For starters, the auditors in question are all between the ages of 10 to 16... yes they are the students of the school's Eco- Club, who came for the first session of Green Schools Campaign's Second edition, and if their enthusiasm is anything to go by, the rest of the schools already have some competition brewing up...

The session was held in the conference room of the school building, and saw more than seventy excited students, all armed with pen and paper for the session. The program saw very active participation from all of the children present, and since the topic was as interesting as it was, there was no surprise that the boys readily accepted the plan and activity for the month. The annual theme for the Green Schools Campaign  being waste management, we explained the relevance, and the steps involved in conducting a proper waste audit for the school building. Such was the interest in taking up the task that almost instantly, Anuj and Ganesh were chosen as the overall heads for the campaign in this school.

Equipped with a module on how to conduct a very fair and precise waste audit and involve everyone on the school premises, the students of Don Bosco Matunga will certainly begin working towards a more beautiful, environment-friendly school. We hope that they will also take these ideas back to their homes and to the communities they live in. We would like to thank Ms. Anita, who has supported us fully, and we wish the school all the very best!
