Mangaluru, Sep 4: Mount Carmel Central School inaugurated the hanging garden and terrace vegetable garden in its own little way on September 4.
The principal, Sr Melissa and chief guest, Oswald Saldanha were welcomed with a human floral chain.
The programme commenced with prayer glorifying God for the bounties of nature. The principal along with the chief guest inaugurated the unique hanging garden prepared by kindergarten staff and students. Waste plastic bottles coloured by the KG staff and hung on nylon rope in an equal distance perpendicular to each other made the beautiful hanging garden.
They then marched toward another 'Go green' project, the 'Terrace Vegetable Garden' where they were welcomed by a human chain of fruits and vegetables by class III. The terrace garden was inaugurated by the chief guest Oswald Saldanha. It was indeed a sight worth watching where the chief guest along with the class representatives and teachers planted the saplings in waste gunny bags which the students of class III had brought from their homes, after which the terrace garden looked like a mini horticulture.
Sr Melissa in her message deeply acknowledged and appreciated the joint venture of the students and staff of kindergarten and class III and cited that it is our turn to nurture nature. She prepared the soil along with the teachers and helpers.
Both the projects were the efforts of the little children's mite toward greening the school campus and thereby mother earth.
