“Breathe easy, let’s plant some trees”, with this slogan, the ‘GO GREEN’ project of SIBC took another initiative of celebrating their states’, Maharashtra Agriculture Day on 1st July 2015 along with Mahatma Education Society’s Chembur English High School. 1st July 2015, is the birthday of Maharashtra’s late Chief Minister Mr. Vasantrao Naik who is considered as the father of the green revolution in Maharashtra.
To inculcate the value of planting among the students, the motto of this event “When we plant a tree we plant happiness”, caught great attention.
The students were encouraged to plant and inculcate the hobby of gardening in their own yard. This event was associated with the Mahim National Park, Mumbai, from where the saplings were brought and given to all the interested students. Students were highly motivated by the presence of SIBC Founder President and Secretary of Mahatma Education society respected Dr. Daphne Pillai who graced the occasion and supported the ‘GO GREEN’ project.
SIBC active member, Principal Mrs. Annamma Paul and all staff members along with Soroptimist members explained the students about the importance of conservation of biodiversity and reminded them to contribute for creating a better surrounding in their own possible way. A great joy was seen among the students when they had their own plants to take home.
