Green School Programme – A Plantation Drive

A tiny sapling can feed the world and a small hope can lead the lives.

Trees represent life, growth, peace and nature. They produce oxygen, clean soil, prevent drought, prevent soil erosion, improve psychological, mental and spiritual health and also reduce carbon footprints. Keeping this in mind ‘Go Green Campaign – a plantation drive’ was organised by Guru Nanak Modern School, Kalyanpur, Kanpur from September 1, 2022 September 9, 2022 for classes 4-8. This activity of Eco club was well managed by Eco-Club Incharge, Ms. Lalsa Soni. The students participated with great zeal and enthusiasm. Dr Navpreet Singh, the Chief Engineer, IIT Kanpur, was the mentor for this plantation drive. The students planted more than 100 saplings in the garden of new campus of Guru Nanak Modern School.

The Principal of the school, Mr Balwinder Singh emphasized the need for tree plantation to save our ecosystem and to preserve the environment for the future generations.
