GREEN SCHOOL PROGRAM
Green school program is an on going programme which we are having in the school. This year we got the first prize amongst 5500 schools from all over India.
Press release from Centre for Science and Environment
"New Delhi, December 18,2008: St.Paul's School, in Delhi's Hauz Khas, had made it to the list in 2007 as well. But this year, it managed to really 'break the mould'. And cornered the first position in the 'Changemakers' category of CSE's Gobar Times Green Schools Awards.
In 2007, St.paul's School had recieved mild applause for having done an efficient audit of its natural resources and their management. It was harvesting rainwater, reusing its wastewater, biocomposting, and managing soild waste on the school's premises.
In 2008, the school added a unique initiative to its list of achievements. It started advocating the use of public and eco-friendly transport as a matter of policy. Earlier, personal vehicles were the preferred mode of mobility for commuting to and from the school. In 2008, with active cooperation from neighbouring residents, the school went all out for promoting its school transport (CNG buses), cycling and walking as alternative modes.
And the move has paid off, says Sumita Dasgupta, coordinator of the Green Schools Programme: "In one year, about 8 percent of the school's children who were using vehicular transport have shifted to walking."
