Our school students of classes 9 to 12 participated enthusiastically in Trash to Cash Challenge organised by School Enterprise Challenge from June 20 to July 2, 2022. Students participated individually and in teams of up to 5 people. They collected material that was waste and created a new product with it. As a last step they sold their product in the community.
The students not only realised their duty towards the environment by creating eco-friendly products but also learnt business skills in the process.
Some of the videos and pictures are given below:

Srishti came up with an inspiring business plan “Moral Mate”, a revolutionary business that seeks to instil wisdom and values among children and try to steer them away from a digital life. As she was concerned by a declining sense of ethics amongst young people, exacerbated by COVID, she planned her business to teach morals and manners to young children through story books, fairy tales and fun characters.
