To replicate the real life situations in the school, club organizes various competitions time to time. Group discussion is held on various topics. One poster making competition was held on the "Earth Day" to spread awareness on the importance of maintaining balance between the humans and nature
We bring awareness among the students about the survival of all the species and how they are interconnected and dependent on each other. If humanity causes the extinction of one species it is really the extinction of many species and the decline of our life support system for us and future generation. God's gift must not be taken for granted - It must be cared for. If not, humanity will face the grim consequences of its actions. We have not inherited earth rather have borrowed from future generation.
