“The future of our country is in our hands. We know that our environment is in perils. We can't breathe and we've polluted our rivers. But we also have the power to bring about change and the Green Schools network stands as a testament to the fact.”
St. Edmund’s School, Jawahar Nagar, was recognised by CSE as one of the nine most sustainably run schools in India – a very proud moment for the school. In the article published in Down to Earth Magazine, it was stated that the school was certified as a green school, acknowledging regular practices to make the school green and clean, not only this, students are motivated regularly to utilise old stationery, garments for supporting community service.
