CHENNAI: The Fathima Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Saidapet, had set up three teams — Eco-friendly, Go Green and Blue Boyz — to pursue environmental activities and make people aware.

A procession of about 100 students was inaugurated by chief guest Arshad Khan, an environmental activist, Principal Nigar Akthar and vice-principals Naaz Parwar and Rajapushpam on September 9.

Placards and banners in the procession highlighted the serious environmental issues around us.

The procession was led by Shalika Banu, Bhavani, Nixon, Sakthivel and Stalin. As the icing on the cake, a tree planting fest was planned by the teams. Selection of the street was a great process. The teams went around and it was quite difficult to choose a street as most of the streets of Saidapet had trees and some were very narrow.

In the end Perumal Koil Street was selected and the permit to plant saplings was obtained from the councillor.  The programme was a great success and the sapling was planted by the principal and vice principals.
