As East Pointers, we believe that “Trees are the kindest things we grow”. Week long Van Mahotsav festivities were observed by the students of our school from 2nd – 7th July 2018. The students participated in activities like watering the plants, writing slogans, making posters and planting saplings. As a part of our responsibility to the society the “Green Warriors “of EPS took up the task to develop the green belt in the adjoining areas. The week-long activities culminated with a tree plantation drive outside the school premises to sensitise the community about importance of planting trees. Our guest of honour, Mr. Rajeev Kumar and other eminent MCD members encouraged the students to nurture and take care of the saplings to increase the green cover of Delhi.
