In order to inculcate love for the mother earth and to educate the ways and means to preserve the nature, our school has taken up stupendous task of preserving our environment. To achieve this purpose an eco club was established 8 years ago. Since the time of its establishment we have put sincere efforts to create awareness amongst the children about various environmental issues. Our school is committed to provide an ecofriendly environment for imparting educational services, while living the carrying capacity of supporting ecosystem.

Demands are increasing every year for water while resources are becoming more and more limited. The problem of water waste is severe in countries where people are using the same inefficient methods for irrigation of agricultural land. Water needs are increasing every year and the proven fact is that clean water is not available to 1 out of 5 people on earth.
Since many individuals are unaware (or, sadly, just don't care) that this issue needs attention, it is up to more informed and proactive individuals and companies to take up the slack.

Then, a nukkad natak (street play) (spreading awareness about conservation of water) was performed by the members of eco club.

It addresses issues of wastage of water, aspects future problems, the arrogant and the careless people and how one can save water. It was highly appreciated by our guests. The guests were elated that we knew so much about nature & conservation.
