Sohini and Rajeev are both students of Bangalore Scottish School in Navodaya Nagar, JP Nagar. The school with strength of close to hundred children has planned several activities on the occasion of World Environment Day (June 5th).
“We want to educate our children on the importance of environment, the impact of our actions and what we can do to have a better environment” says Viola Isaac, Principal of the 9 year old CBSE affiliated school.

On June 6th, the school will inaugurate a green club called, ‘Green Revival’ which will be managed by Youth for Seva, a city-based NGO that enlists students and young working professionals for community service. Popular Kannada television actor, Ravi Kiran, also a resident of JP Nagar and R Sunder Raj, Secy, Sports Association, JP Nagar 7th phase, will be the chief guests. They will also plant saplings in the school’s campus.  

After the inauguration of the club, students along with their parents will head to Someshwara Bhavan, a community hall nearby and perform a street play about the threats to our environment and educated passers by about what they can do for environment. After the street play, students escorted by teachers will head out to houses in the neighbourhood and distribute saplings, which can be planted in their homes or nearby.
