Liter by liter, Don Bosco School, Nerul to save Water!
20 November 2011
The student members of the Nature Club at Don Bosco, Nerul always seem excited to do new things on the environment in their school, and always seem more than happy to have us members of the GreenLine Team coming in to give input sessions and new activities for them to complete. The third session that we took with the students saw the same enthusiasm, with children from a number of different classes coming to the session, oven though it was their Open House. The topic for the session was Respect and Value Water, and from the minute we started, we knew we were at a school gearing up for some major water saving.
The first session for the GreenLine team post-Diwali vacations, Father Savio introduced Jessica Serrao to the students, a new team member. This was followed by the premiere screening of a short documentary on Respecting Water- an amalgamation of the problems, solutions and everyone’s responsibility towards saving this precious resource. This followed with a presentation by Jessica on Water Statistics—how much water the city gets, how much is wasted, where and how it gets spent, etc. Following the introductory on the water situation in the city, Alden did a presentation on how water could be saved in the simplest way by completion of simple tasks. The tasks prescribed to the students were such that they could be followed in school, as well as were expected to take the ideas back home, and to their housing colonies.
The students of the school say that they will be a school to watch out for in the Green Schools Campaign this year. We sure hope so. All the best to the nature club from Don Bosco High School, Nerul.
