Raahgiri Day - Swacchta Ka Mahatava
As the part of the NDTV initiative, the students of Ridge Valley School, Gurgaon participated in a street play “Swachhata ki Pathshala” as part of Rahagiri Day on 29th November, 2015. The play reflected on the growing concern of pollution and unhygienic conditions that prevail in the country.
During the introductory session, Students introduced the theme of the play with the punchline “Apni to Paathshala, Swachhta ki Pathshala”. The play ran for 7 minutes in which students performed their respective roles with full vigour. The importance of cleanliness was effectively conveyed with spectators being drawn to the stage and taking interest in the play.
The children staff and parents of the school commenced a cleanliness drive wherein the Principal Ms Guneet Ohri initiated the drive by picking up the garbage from the streets. Soon a lot of passers-by also joined in reinforcing the commitment of the community at large.
The school plans to conduct more such activities to spread greater awareness among the citizens for a better and cleaner India.
