We reached the school by 9.30 AM and informed about our activities and future activities to be conducted at College to improve student’s personal skills with Principal Mrs. Shyamala. She is very co operative to do any activities, but their management informed her to concentrate more on studies rather than improving extra curricular activities for children for this academic year. She asked us our plan of action so that she can discuss with management and let us know.

Plantation started with a marvelous speech by Vani to create awareness in students. They participated very enthusiastically. 20 saplings of Ganuga, Amla and Laxmi Taru are planted with the help of NSS team (40 students). Couple of students will take care of each plant. We are going to give prizes to the students who will take best care of the tree growth at the end of academic year.

We would like to say special thanks to Raghu, Leela, Chaitanya, Vani and Gangadhar who took care of bringing saplings from the Danvanthari and Art of Living and Anil BVN who is the initiator for this event and made necessary arrangements by talking with college principal.
