HomeAAVAHAN....a stepping stone to waste management


Dear Parent,

Eicher School is a proud recipient of the prestigious INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL AWARD for 2015-18. We were awarded by British Council, Government of UK for designing, developing and inculcating an international dimension in the school curriculum. This was incorporated with an intention of enabling its students to understand and appreciate different cultures abroad and facilitate their integration as global citizens, Eicher School, once again this year has joined the International School Awards programme.

In pursuance of this project, students of all classes will be  involved  in executing projects  that require certain parameters to be met. Students will be involved in certain activities apart from the school curriculum and the project will continue through out this academic year.

The International School Award (ISA) is a benchmarking scheme that accredits schools as having an outstanding level of support for:

        ·         nurturing global citizenship in young people

        ·         enriching teaching and learning



The students of classes 5 and 6 will be engaged in the ISA Project of "Aavahan...A stepping stone to waste management". The project aims at sensitizing students about the importance of proper waste management. The students will learn, practice and create awareness about the proper waste management techniques of six different types of wastes: Biodegradable waste, Non-biodegradable waste, clinical waste, agricultural waste, chemical waste and e-waste. They will further enrich themselves by studying waste management techniques in the countries Sweden, Dubai and Singapore. A host of activities will take place such as Recess duty, Poster making competition, Slogan writing competition, Best out of waste, etc. They will visit the Apartments in vicinity, parks and hospitals to collect information and generate awareness. A visit to related embassies will help them as well. They will share the information with partner schools at a global level. This project will enlighten the children about how to make the society a better place to live in. They will start from their school only and further extend their thoughts at a global level.
