In the 1st session of the Guest Speaker Series, Ms. Poornima Sarvargaonkar, an avid environmentalist came to Ridge Valley School to encourage the students to recycle the waste in their homes and gave a demo on ‘Composting in an Apartment’. The session was very interactive with the students learning to segregate the waste and how to make compost in an earthen pot using decomposable material. The most important message taken home by the children was the need for each one to do their bit for Mother Earth, which was portrayed beautifully through a story from the Panchatantra, which the children instantly related to.
