“Only one person cannot bring the change, everyone should take one or the other step from his side”. This phrase rightly suits when it comes to waste management. We all know that to clean the streets, roads and other infrastructure of 4,401 statutory cities and towns all over India ‘SWACCH BHARAT ABHIYAN’ program is being implemented by government of India, initiated by the honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Taking forward this step our school is also conducting ‘WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME’ to keep our premises clean and manage the waste properly. Our facilities manager Mr Shashank said, “Under this programme wet and dry waste will be separated using different bins. The wet wastes segregated will be dumped into barrels containing soil to produce organic manure which is going to be used as fertilizer for the trees and plants in our school premises”.
Akanksha of Class IX said, “This is a really good idea of utilizing wastes in helpful ways”. Ayesha of Class VIII said, “Every school should implement these kind of waste management programmes to protect our environment”. Our Headmaster Mr. Khan expressed his views saying it is an excellent alternative for the use of chemical fertilizers and to sustain ecological balance by the use of organic manure.
In this way teachers and children are trying very hard to segregate the waste. However, one of the main challenge is getting students to use different bins for different sorts of waste. We are trying to bridge this through awareness campaigns like making posters, media presentations etc. – Thanks to our intern Pravalika for all the efforts in taking forward the campaign. We hope that every parent will contribute to the waste management mission by encouraging their kids in these activities at home too.
