Students marched with the slogans such as “be fantastic don’t use plastic”, “ Plastic hatao bimariyan bhagao”, “ Swatantrata adhikar hai to swachata kartavya hai”, “ Recycle each and every day instead of throwing plastic away”, “Plastic ko nakahe ,swasthya ke khatro ko kam karo”.
Students along with their teachers cleaned the school ground and the surrounding areas of the school.
