The students of The Palace School witnessed a special assembly on 13th Feb., where the TEAM CLEAN JAIPUR delegates comprising of Mrs. Anita Sangwan, Avi Dandiya, Mayur Tiwari, Amit Badia, Raghvendra Singh, Viren Singh, and Rajiv Awasthi were accorded a warm welcome.
Mrs. Sangwan briefed the students of the urgency and need to spruce up the city, free it of uncontrolled garbage proliferation and stop them who indulge in unhealthy open-air activities!
Our Principal Mrs.Urvashi Warman also immediately accepted TEAM CLEAN JAIPUR’s invitation to participate in the Sunday Drive on 17th Feb., at Choti Chopar.
Most of the students of classes 6 & 7 volunteered to sacrifice their Sunday holiday and help out in this drive as young crusaders.
The students along with other school students went around the Choti Chopar(Kishenpole) ably assisted by the Police Department personnel. The students went around handing messages to stall owners, shop keepers, residents to keep their vicinity garbage-free, to dump garbage in dustbins provided by the Jaipur Municipal Corporation, and ensure that the door-to-door rag/garbage picker is appreciated for his daily rounds and to make his life easier by off-loading their waste on time .
It was a mammoth task but our students took it upon themselves as young responsible citizens of Jaipur to advocate and educate about the importance of hygiene and cleanliness in and around our living and working places.
