DEAL TO COLLECT PEELS

Creating compost from vegetable peels is an excellent way to reduce waste and produce nutrient-rich soil for your garden. To celebrate Van Mahotsav week, students of Class VI were asked to collect the peels from their kitchen which were taken out while preparing meals, and the scraps were collected in a designated container. They brought carrot tops, potato peels, onion skins, celery leaves, and broccoli stems. Once they have accumulated a sufficient amount of vegetable peels, they collected it in a bin and put them in compost pit. As our school’s compost pit comprises of alternate layers of vegetable peels and other organic materials like yard waste or leaves so the waste was segregated accordingly.
They are guided to regularly turn or aerate the compost pit with help of helpers to provide oxygen for the decomposition process. They will also monitor the temperature and moisture levels to ensure optimal composting conditions.

BOW WITH GRATITUDE

The students understood the need to respect and thank those invisible hands (our helpers) who are always there for us, helping us in every possible way.
By bowing down and giving them some beautiful handmade ‘Thank You’ cards, the students of Class VI expressed their gratitude to the school helpers on occasion of International Labour Day.
