Ganesh Chaturthi is round the corner and everyone is preparing to welcome Lord Ganesha. However, the best part about it is that city schools are engrossing students in a range of programs and activities to motivate them to celebrate this year’s Ganesh Chaturthi in an eco-friendly manner.
Before the kids go for their Ganesh Chaturthi holidays, special seminars and lectures on celebrating festivals in an eco-friendly way are been arranged for them by the schools. Right from making clay statues of Lord Ganesha to origami craft for the toddlers, schools are observed to get their students prepared to use their own thoughts to use the eco-friendly approach of Ganesh celebrations.

Neelu Lamba, Hiranandani Foundation School’s Principal (Thane), said, “During the art class, students have been making statues of clay of Lord Ganesha since last week. Thanks to the several awareness drives, numerous individuals have moved to eco-friendly customs of celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi. Thus, even we are emphasizing on the significance of conserving the ecosystem in our value education class. Besides, school teachers are also directing conversations to increase awareness.”
Teachers deem that this innovative, social notion not only educates the students about art and environment but also allows them to achieve an understanding of our Indian culture.
Billabong International School’s Principal, Ranjani Krishnaswamy (Thane), said, “We conduct clay modeling activities for children every year. Right from molding to the ultimate finishing touches, the whole thing is done completely by the children with the assistance of their respective class teachers. For tiny tots, we have something known as paper Ganesh, wherein they craft the Lord’s model with paper craft techniques.”
Similarly, Smt. Sulochanadevi Singhania School is also all set to celebrate the festival with gaiety and pomp. Revathi Shrinivasan, the Principal, said, “The school has taken positive steps in the course of sensitizing one and all toward an eco-friendly celebration, from street-plays by children & classroom activities to eco-friendly Ganesha-creating programs for parents. We consider that these attempts are diminutive but surely are steps that can bring a change in the society.”
