Student's view on becoming a Green Flag School

The most important thing of all is to be persistent and give time to students to get accustomed to changes, because it is the basis for all new.

Our school started out by doing little things; using less printing paper and telling students to take only the food they eat so that they won't fill up the bio waste bucket too much. 

We have also saved electricity by turning off all the electric equipment for weekends, by switching off lights in the corridors in bright days and with many more little things. 

Even though the changes were small the benefits and results were huge. The pile of money that we have collected along the years we decided to use for the fixing of the green area around the school.

So people have started with little things and after that they have moved towards bigger issues, and that is how they have got used to changes.
