16th Founder’s Day of our Aravali campus

At our 16th Founder’s Day of our Aravali campus last week, we had the honour of hosting Mr. Ravi Kalra, Founder & President of The Earth Saviours Foundation as our Chief Guest. Mr. Kalra is responsible for leading a lot of civil society campaigns in the public space, including the “Do Not Honk” campaign to curb noise pollution. He is also responsible for the respectful cremation of over 5000 unclaimed/unidentified bodies, where he offers his helping hand voluntarily to cremate them with prayers, so that their souls can rest in peace. A truly inspiring human being, Mr. Kalra shared his journey with our students, staff and parents.

TSRS organises one-day event on sustainable living

Students of The Shri Ram School, Aravali, organised a one-day event — Mad about Environment — with the theme ‘back to nature’ on the school premises on Saturday.

During the event, students of all classes displayed the work they conceptualised and put together as part of their in-class activity over the year. The projects covered an array of environment-related topics, including renewable energy, biomimicry, sustainable cities and so on.

The students also displayed innovative projects to resolve daily and as well as long-term environmental concerns. These included methods for rainwater harvesting and cleaning of river Yamuna. The event also featured stalls where students displayed futuristic transport.

“I displayed the project to clean Yamuna. A lot of research was done to understand the ways to clean the river with minimum effects on the ecosystem. I would like to propose this idea to the government as well after studying the issue in depth,” Manan, a class 9 student, said.

Mad about environment was jointly conceptualised as a day with friends and family, where there was scope for both learning and enjoyment.

Students also performed streetplays and dances.

“It was a great day here. There are so many small things that we do, which affect the environment so adversely but go unnoticed. This has been a fun learning experience,” Neha Kapoor, a parent, said.

The teachers as well as parents participated in the event with enthusiasm. They helped the students display their projects.

Manika Sharma, the director of The Shri Ram School, said, “Renewable energy, biomimicry, water management, waste management, futuristic food, transport and apparel — all of this and more were the theme of the Mad about Environment festival held at the Shri Ram School.”
