Van Mahotsava

Delhi is celebrating van mahotsava festival from 3rd August to 14th August. It is celebrated as a festival of life. In India it was started as a crusade to save mother earth. The name Van Mahotsava means “the festival of trees”. Van Mahotsav is an annual tree-planting festival in India, which was initiated in the year 1950 by India’s Union Minister for Agriculture, Kulapati Dr.K M Munshi.

It began in July 1947 after a flourishing tree planting drive was undertaken in Delhi, in which national leaders like Dr Rajendra Prasad and Jawaharlal Nehru participated.

Therefore, our school is also participating in this drive to symbolize the importance of trees and invited Mrs. Afshan Yasmin who is the deputy director of education (South – West A zone), for tree plantation drive.  This festival of trees is a beautiful initiative to save the environment, to which we owe a lot.

Principal Mr D.M. Sharma motivated all  Goenkans to join hands in  saving mother earth by making this small contribution and requested everyone to  try and actively involve themselves in this practice as well.
