Class 12 boarders of GDGWS Interact Club in collaboration with Bhagat Foundation NGO for Child Education Gurugram organised a Tree Plantation Drive under the aegis of its GO GREEN Project on August 24, 2019 at D Block Park Sector 57 Gurugram.
The boarders along with DHM Mrs. Shahnaz Banoo Butt and their house parents boarded the school bus early morning around 8 am and first went directly to the school run by the NGO to pick up the kids from the NGO School. The kids of the NGO school upon boarding our bus were excited to board an AC bus for the first time. The bus took the boarders along with the NGO school kids to the nearby park. Participating in a tree plantation drive and directly getting involved in digging pits and planting trees was something which many boarders had never experienced before. A total of around 60 trees were planted. The boarders also entertained the NGO school kids whose number was around 90 by dancing, playing games and singing folk songs with them especially songs on Janamashtami. DHM and the boarders also shared their knowledge with the NGO school kids about the importance of protecting the environment generally and specially about plating trees. The NGO school kids also shared their life experiences with the boarders. The boarders also distributed refreshments amongst the kids.
