Green initiative at Wadlakonda

Students, staff and volunteers planted coconut and mango saplings at the new campus.

RDF Wadlakonda School recently moved to a new school site in the village of Rollakallu.

In order to make space for the upcoming school building, a small part of the land had to be cleared. Being conscientious about the environment, Mr. Cherallu, the school Headmaster, initiated a plantation drive. Fifteen coconut saplings and 5 mango saplings were donated to the school. The staff, students and members of the donor team then spent a part of their Sunday planting the trees.

The students learned a valuable lesson in the process – that of ecological balance and the importance of keeping the environment green. The school also hopes to raise funds through the sale of the coconuts and mangoes once the trees reach maturity.
