Dear Parents,


“A clean environment is a human right like any other. It is therefore our responsibility to others to ensure that the world we pass on is as healthy, if not healthier, than we found it.” – Dalai Lama

Committed to creating a Clean and Green School, The Indian School is making continuous efforts to sensitise the students, staff, parents, and the community at large about their role in maintaining a clean and healthy environment through various programmes.

We have undertaken several initiatives to generate awareness among school children and the community to environment-related issues of concern, through various activities organised by School. Environment awareness and consciousness is well reflected in our teaching-learning strategies.

As we know, plastic is a new generation material that is irreplaceable and should be used judiciously and then recycled. To continue with our endeavours, School is glad to announce a Mega Plastic Collection Drive in collaboration with ICPE ( Indian Centre for Plastic in the Environment) from 17th November to 10th December 2021. The ICPE, which was set up on the recommendation of a task force constituted by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF), is a body registered under the Societies Act on January 27, 1999. It is a nodal agency recognised by the Government of India to handle all issues relating to plastics and the environment across the country.

To give this drive, a wide reaching impact, it must encompass the entire School and the community. To restrict plastic being sent to landfills and junkyards, we need the collaborative efforts of parents, teachers, and the student community.

We invite the parents and students of The Indian School to be on board with us for this noble cause of environment conservation and make a significant effort to making our School, the community, and our city a sustainable place to live in. Remember there is no Planet B.

Participating students shall receive a certificate from ICPE.

The Mega Plastic Collection Drive is starting on 17th November and will end on 10th December 2021. Follow the following instructions to submit your plastic waste:

1. Put the collected plastic waste into a bag neatly labelled ( Student’s name, class and section). Ensure that the plastic waste is clean and dry.

2. Click a photo of your collected plastic waste and upload it in the following Google Form. The images will be accepted in jpg format only.

3. Submit your plastic waste at the School gate between 8 am and 3 pm.

“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”

We look forward to your active participation to make this drive a runaway success.
