Gaining Hands-on Experience
To raise the start-up capital (for adhesive and colouring material for our handicraft business) we decided to sell 95 kg compost to parents and teachers at Rs. 20 per kg during the PTM (Parent Teacher Meeting) of grade 1 and 2 on August 1, 2015.
The students of Eco Club of grade 10 weighed the compost and made packs of 1 kg in the newspaper bags made by students of grade 6 and 7.
The compost had been made by the students of Eco Club during the period February – May 2015. It was produced from leaves lying scattered in the school campus with no extra cost involved.
The waste of leaves lying scattered on the school campus has been converted into compost – thereby using the concept of ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’. This would be our small contribution in making our planet ‘green’.
