Activities

Kendriya Vidyalaya, Hebbal has left no stone unturned to increase awareness on environment issues amonst the students and teachers .

Energy auditing was taken up in each class .The electric bills were compared and analysed .
A science meet was organized for the students of classes I to XI where in competitions were held to understand climate change and their role to reduce impact.

A pollution survey of the school was conducted by the members of the Eco Club

Carbon footprint of the school was taken up and was compared to the standard one by the students of class IX.
At the administrative level to reduce use of paper circulars to the teachers are sent through mail.

One of the waste management concept is to reduce the use of plastics which have been initiated in the primary section.

Before the commencement of climate change conference at Copenhagen in December 2009, students raised there concern about it through a letter to then Minister of Environment and Forests, Mr Jairam Ramesh for which a reply message was received.

To create awareness among students about the number 350ppm, the maximum amount of CO2 in PPM which can be present in the atmosphere, a talk by an expert. was followed by formation of 350 number
A compost pit made in the school serves the manure requirement by 50 %

Master Julius Nandy, a Tiger Ambassador was interviewed by media including CNN IBN and The Times of India.

Environmental Activitis

Gandhiji said 'Be the change you wish to see in the world'

Keeping in vision of environmental awareness, taking care of the crucial link between the plants and the climate change, the Vidyalaya is continuously striving to increase the green cover in the school. Each class in primary section adopted a medicinal plant and looks after it . Throughout the year, planting of saplings at different areas in the campus is taken up.

A special mention about the project 'My Tree ' must be made. The students of class IV ,he invitee grandparents planted the sapling along with their grandchildren who in turn are taking care of that plant .
This has sparkled the theme & increased the rapport between the parents, grandparents, students of the school.

The result of going green has helped the school to bag award for the best maintained campus by Lalbagh -Horticulture dept.for the past six years.

Creative Work

Think global, act local
- Julius Nandy

Global Warming is no more a cliché. It is staring at us between the eye now. Our fore fathers didn’t do much in this regard and if we follow them, then future life will become much more catastrophical. The balance of life will be destroyed far beyond repair. We need to do something NOW. Little drops of water and little grains of sand make the mighty ocan and the pleasant land. Spreading awareness, Campaigning against exploitation of nature is one fundamental thing we can do. Making use of cleaner energy resources and advocating them is also necessary. The most useful and feasible thing that we can do is tree plantation. We can plant a sapling on happy occasions. We can gift saplings to others. One tree takes in 5 tonnes of CO2 in its lifetime. Suppose one arab of people in India plant one tree each year, then CO2 gets reduced by 5 arab tonnes. Just think about it.



Time is running out

We've gotta do something.
Come on do it with me
'cause you're the only one who can make change
Don’t think you can’t make change
'cause every single one counts



Ideals

  • Tree plantation - One tree absorbs 5 tonnes of carbon in its lifetime.
  • Forest conservation - Forests are at the bottom of the food chain; essential for life.
  • Tiger conservation - Tigers are at the bottom of the food chain; essential for life.
  • Re-settlement of forest villages - Villages must be shifted from core-areas to buffer-zones.
  • Conserving corridors - Wider gene base to prevent in-breeding.
  • Forest guard armament - Protectors of the forests must be armed to fight against poachers


Tigers


Tiger conservation immediately implies saving the forest and water resources.
You'll soon see how:

Rains falling on the canope are slowed down by the trees on the top of the conope. The rain gets further slowed down in the next level of treetops. Its speed reduces immensly as it reaches the ground. In the ground it is absorbed by the soil due to presence of humus. This replenishes the water table and we are assured adiquate water supply. Also, water is absorbed by the trees and this helps in rainfall due to trees' loss of water due to transpiration. This phenominan is called the sponge affect.
The tiger is at the top of the food-chain. If we wipe them out, there will be a huge increase in the number of herbivores. They will end up eating up the natural vegetation. This, combined with the deforestation of present times will result in the removal of the whole canope.

If lands are barren then the rains fall at their full speed on the ground. This results in the erodig of the topsoil. The eroded material along with the rain now runs off into the rivers. The rivers overflow and there are floods. In summer: since no rain has seeped, there is drought.

Destruction in one sphere has thus led to destruction in another sphere; in this case: water shortage and natural calamities - both affecting us...

He bagged first prize at Regional Science Exhibition ( by KVS ) held at KV Mysore in NOV. 2010 and was selected for the National Level Science Exhibition.
