Linked agro-extension and environmental campus
Teaching sustainability to our students
With the world dealing with mass-scale industrialization, it is the responsibility of schools to bring about an awareness and knowledge for sustainability through Community Living, Agricultural operations, Waste Management and Environmental Resource Protections. We also believe in passing the baton of composite knowledge of sustainable living to the next generation.
TEACHING SUSTAINABILITY IN THE CLASSROOM
Sustainable development is the development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the future generations to meet their own needs with the motto :
'ENOUGH ……..FOR ALL…FOREVER'
The specially designed- DREAM- IN- GREEN - Sustainability Curriculum for students will increase their appreciation for; connection to; and knowledge of the environment. It is a futuristic programme that engages students in hands-on educational activities and connectivity that would save water, energy and optimum utilisation of resources.
