Van Mahotsav Celebration @MIT VGS Barshi
MIT VGS Barshi organized the annual Van Mahotsav between 04 to 08 July 2022 with zeal and enthusiasm. Students from Grade I to X participated in this Van Mahotsav. This week is celebrated as part of the ‘Go Green’ initiative as introduced in the school to promote afforestation programs and the growth of trees. Grade IX and X students participated in the street play [Nukkad Natak] based on afforestation, the impact of the Greenhouse Effect, Global Warming as well as the reasons and impacts of Climate Change on the environment and humankind. Many other events such as vegetable painting, slogan writing, and Poster making competition were held. Teachers expressed their gratitude to everybody present there for encouraging such an awareness drive. Students learned that ‘Van Mahotsav’ is celebrated at the onset of the monsoon season because the saplings planted during this period have a greater chance of survival. These various activities helped to instill the value of social responsibilities in the students.
