Tree Plantation Drive in Our School
A tree plantation drive was organized at our school, Maharaja High School in Jalpaiguri to create awareness and spread the message of saving our dear planet. The programme took place on 10th September, 2022 at 11 am in our school premises. The inauguration ceremony began at 10.30 am. All the teachers, the students of all classes were present there. Dr. Rahul Bose, an environmentalist was the chief guest of this programme. Our Headmaster and the chief guest delivered short speeches on the importance of this programme.
Then the tree plantation programme started. Students brought different types of saplings and planted them in the school compound. A cultural programme was also held to mark the day. I took part in singing and recitation. It was a great and memorable day in my life.
Each of them planted five saplings. The importance of trees in contributing to the environment by providing oxygen improving air quality, conserving water, preserving soil, supporting wild life and providing shelter, medicine and tools was explained to students on the occasion. I took part in the recitation and drama. It was a great joy for me.
