"Environmental Awareness Campaign" connected us to society and gives us the belongingness to our nature. This also helps every one of us to be responsible for one's own action connecting to global concerns. With an aim of Connecting to social attributes, our students as a part of ECO-CLUB ACTIVITY conducted an "Environment Awareness Campaign",@ Adithyanagar, near HMT hills on 13th Sep-2015 (Sunday) from 10.00 am to 12 noon. Our young learners took up this social responsibility in promoting and caring for environment.
On 3rd October, 2015 our students conducted a survey at Bowrampet village, on 7th October, 2015 at Hill County to collect data regarding the waste generation and management.
On 8th October, 2015 conducted an "Environment Awareness Campaign",@ Bowrampet Village and shared the effective and simple ways to manage the waste. This helps us to reduce the waste and save our environment. The session followed with tree plantation program near Gram Panchayat Office, Bowrampet."The next 10 years may be more important than the last 20 years in determining the fate of water to drink, oxygen to breathe and healthy life to live………." "Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try." We are extremely delighted to see our students' thought process into action.
Program Objective: To spread awareness about the changes in environment like climate changes, global warming, change in rain patterns, humidity, etc. To identify the techniques/tips to segregate and manage the waste which will help for better environment. To inculcate the values, attitudes and skills among students like Caring and Empathy, Social Responsibility & Accountability and Communication skills.
We would like to highlight and appreciate our students who opted ECO CLUB as their HOBBY Class. At school students have an opportunity to select literary club, SUPW club, Techno club, sports club, etc. Out of varied options these students have selected the Eco club which reflects their attitude and concern towards environment.
We strongly believe that this INITIATION BY THE ECO-CLUB STUDENTS OF THE CREEK PLANET SCHOOL is going to spread around all the communities in order to save our Earth.

From student community desk:
On 28th July, 2015 the students of Creek had an inspiring session on Dr.A.P.J Abdul Kalam. At the end of the session we were able to analyze the importance of 'Vision 2020', understand the concept of development of nation , compare the differences between urban and rural also steps to minimize the gap. We also understood our role as students and that each and every one of has a responsibility towards our country. Later we were assigned to reflect our work and views about the session with our fellow students and also communities. One of Dr.Abdul Kalam's inspiring quotes which I like is "If you want to shine like a sun, burn like the sun"
