“Trees are the earth’s Endless effort to speak to listening heaven” Rabindra Nath Tagore
The environment has nourished us since years and years like a new born child. However, men has led to great environmental problems, unintentionally placing their whole life in danger. In order to create environmental awareness, UN in 1974 declared that every year 5th June will be observed as ‘World Environment Day’ a day when men shall officially recall all the gifts received from nature and pay a tribute to them. Every year World Environment Day has a different host country, where the official celebrations take place. The focus on the host country helps to highlight the environmental challenges it face and support the effort to address then. This year host country is India who’s theme is ‘Best Plastic Pollution. It is indeed every citizen’s duty to take the initiative to core for their own environment and stop the usage of plastics.
As an act of responsible citizen the management of St. Joseph’s Convent Higher Secondary School organized tree plantation programme on 5th June. It was conducted by the members and moderators of the Eco-club around 12∙30pm. Three variety of sapling were planted within the school premises by Add. Deputy Commissioner of Sonitpur District Sri Parag Kr Kakoti along with the Inspector of schools, Sonitpur Prabat Das, School authority and student representative.

They have also helped and contributed towards the National Theme by motivating the students to avoid plastics and pollution and encouragement them to be part of the nature’s building process. The students pledged to lead the efficient use of sustainable development.
