My India, Clean India
In a novel way of celebrating Children’s Day, the students of John Martyn Memorial School came out on the roads in solidarity with Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan. All the students including the four year olds from the Nursery were seen looking for bits of paper and other garbage around.
“Our way of grooming responsible citizens of India”, said the Principal, “By the time they grow up, these villages will change into clean villages .”
Children and teachers formed a few groups and headed for nearby locations like Khairani, Vaibhav farm, Bhandargaon and Bhagwantpur. Armed with polythene bags, they collected all garbage and deposited them in the public dustbins.
“An excellent way to create public awareness”, said Mr. Sharma, “These children are our future”.
The school staff also treated the students to a Happy Meal.
