St. Edmund's School, Jawahar Nagar Association with CSE (Centre for Science and Environment) began working diligently in this direction since 2015, The initiative engaged our young Edmundites and staff members in various projects and offered them a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the environment.

One such project was about waste-to-wealth, which sensitized our children towards waste management. Children tried to visualize and analyze how different waste materials can be reused or recycled in different ways. They also developed an entrepreneurial instinct, under a school activity whereby they were encouraged to start an enterprise. They began their venture with a zero sum balance with each student contributing either old newspapers or plant saplings to the enterprise. They sold the newspapers to a rug shop and saplings to customers during a parent-teacher’s meeting, and collected almost Rs. 5,000. In this way, they learnt the importance of money and how to generate it. Such skills are encouraged under our courses on financial management and literacy, where students inculcate them through learning-by-doing. Funds generated through such activities are used for hosting community service projects, which orients the young minds towards social service.

The waste-to-wealth project fulfilled various learning objectives, like environment protection, practicing green habits, money management, teamwork, and much more. That’s how our children have become young waste warriors. Currently, we are also aiming to teach organic composting to them. Children who bring fruits or their peels in lunchboxes are asked to dispose them in a compost machine to make manure. The fruit seeds are used for growing saplings. Thus, subjects like Science, Biology, and Chemistry become more interesting and practical for them. Such experiential learning also eliminates the phobia about these disciplines.

With CSE’s endeavor, our students have transformed into enlightened green ambassadors. Our teachers have benefitted from their Climate Change Course and our school has even won the prestigious Green School’s Award. As this journey continues, we look forward to evolving new ways of combating the imminent environmental challenges.

The idea of setting up Heritage Club in schools is to make the students aware and be proud of the richness of the natural and cultural heritage in their own locality, state and country. With the motive of creating awareness and participation in heritage related activities among the students St Edmund’s School, Jawahar Nagar formed Dharohar heritage club in collaboration with INTACH. Students organized an event which began with Ganesh Vandana followed by variety of different dialect activities such as Marwadi, Gujrati, Sindhi, Haryanvi and Punjabi. Inspired by the vast heritage of India, the students of INTACH Club made a power point presentation through which they introduce everyone with different cultures and dance forms. Versatile performance of Adhyatm Jagdhari, grade 12th was icing on the cake.

At the end, Principal Anu Bhatia gave a motivating speech & said “Youth is a bridge between cultures and heritage, therefore, they can be considered as agents to promote heritage and intercultural understanding.” The students of St Edmund’s are always encouraged to become the custodians of protecting India’s cultural heritage through meaningful acts.”
