Matendla goes green

Saplings planted in the area surrounding the school


An earlier post shared the efforts at sustainability from RDF Wadlakonda School, in a similar vein; RDF Matendla School too has a plant and tree based program running. The staff and students have come together to plant mango, cherry and banana trees in the areas surrounding the school. The fence has been adorned with flowering plants to ensure that the school grounds look appealing and become a tranquil and peaceful place to foster growth and learning. The plants also attract local birds which add to the overall peaceful atmosphere of the area. In addition to this, the fruit sold from the mango trees are also a source of additional income for the school; while the cherry fruit is consumed by students and staff of the school during meal time. The fresh air and green surroundings truly create an atmosphere which allows the students to thrive at all activities be it leisure or academic.
