Our Lady of Dolours, Marine Lines Has A Water Challenge to Gear up to!


November 28, 2011


There is a little something different about each and every school that we visit in the Green Schools Campaign. Some are extremely huge, with thousands of students, the others not at all that, with only a few hundred students. What amazes us about Our Lady of Dolours School, Marine Lines is that it is so small, your most probably are never going to know there is a school around, until you really look! One of the earlier schools catering to the locals of the area, the Church building is the only real sign that there could possibly be an educational center around here. One thing that definitely separates this school from the rest is the fact that the school is so miniscule, that we do the sessions in the church building instead.

That being said, the children form the nature club at the school are definitely among the excited groups of the school with so much activity going on all over the place. We reached the school at 10.30 and most of the students had gathered for the session. Following the session which had Father Savio introducing the idea of Respecting water, Jessica explaining water stats for the city of Mumbai, and Alden doing a presentation on the activities to be carried out by the students to conserve water, all of the students showed great interest in promoting the idea. The students said that they had conducted a very accurate waste audit and would be presenting it in the next session along with the water activity.


We wish the school the very best!
