Students celebrate the forest

STUDENTS, parents and teachers of Rambisessar Chaudhary Memorial Primary School celebrated International Day of Forests on Friday.

The students planted about 30 seedlings, 15 of which were given to the school at Sawani in Nausori by the Ministry of Forests, said headteacher Bimla Singh.

She said while the school also planned to have an anti-dengue clean-up campaign, the unfavourable weather conditions made it difficult and they were forced to postpone the event.

"But that was not too much of an issue for us, as the students had also brought plants from their homes to plant for this activity, which was great.

"We don't really have many large trees around our school compound so what we did was that we asked each class to bring a plant from home and on top of that the extra 15 the ministry gave and planted them around our compound so that in the future students will have trees here."

She said the feedback from the students was encouraging.

"Even though the weather wasn't good today, the students were still very excited about going out and planting and students really enjoyed themselves and the parents co-operated really well."
