The Great Ganga Run 2019 was part of “NamamiGange Programme”. NamamiGange Programme, is an Integrated Conservation Mission, approved as ‘Flagship Programme’ by the Government of India to accomplish the twin objectives of effective abatement of pollution, conservation and rejuvenation of National River Ganga.
30 students from the School joined the run along with DHM Mrs. Shahnaz Banoo Butt and some parents on September 15, 2019 Sunday at Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium New Delhi. The run was organised in four categories- 21 Kms, 10 Kms, 5 Kms, and 2 Kms. Majority of the students ran in and successfully completed 10 Kms category. We are happy to report that two of the students Abhishek Kasana Grade 12 and Masood Ahmad Ikhlas Grade 8 ran in 21 Kms category and completed the same is good time. The students had prepared and were carrying placards with relevant slogans for water conservation which was appreciated by many. It was a great experience for the students to be part of a movement for public good which will help in sensitizing themtowards water conservation.
After the completion of the run the students performed on stage and enthralled a large crowd by singing songs and playing their instruments. The performance on violin by Kushagra Sharma of Grade 9 was a hit amongst the audience. We take this opportunity to congratulate all the students and parents who participated in this noble cause and made the school proud.
