PLOGGING AT TAFS - 01 OCT 2019
Albert Einstein had said about Mahatma Gandhi, "The
generations to come will scarce believe that such a one, in flesh and blood,
ever walked on this earth."
In accordance with the ongoing ‘Fit India Plogging
Run’ to celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi this
year as a Clean India - Fit India Campaign, many activities were conducted in
the Junior Wing throughout the week.
The term PLOGGING has been used for the activity of clearing
plastic waste while running or jogging.
Drawing inspiration from the Mahatma, who had famously said,
"Be the change yourself that you wish to see in the world," the
children participated in activities like ‘Shramdaan’, ‘Swachchta Abhiyaan’,
tree plantation, and green drive.
The children decided to follow our Prime Minister, Modi's
call to plog for 2km on October 2, to contribute towards a clean and fit Delhi
and a clean and fit India.
As a part of Gandhi Jayanthi celebrations the students of
class V ran a small circuit in the school premises, on 01 Oct 2019, collecting
garbage with their little hands and fulfilling two big needs (cleanliness and
fitness) with one small deed.
To encourage children and make them understand the ethos of
Gandhi, a presentation on the life of the Mahatma was shown, and instances from
his life were discussed where he had exemplified simplicity and minimalism by
his way of living. "There is enough on this earth for everybody's need,
but not for everybody's greed”. Gandhiji seemed to have foreseen the problems
of the modern civilization nearly a hundred years ago. The present generation
is suffering the ill-effects of their own doing. But now, everybody's concern
and alertness to save earth and preserve it for the future generations, has
grown into a sweeping movement.
Our TAFS Juniors have begun their march!
