CHENNAI: Ryan International School, Sriperumbudur, organised an exhibition on July 6 to create awareness on the need to grow medicinal plants.

The exhibition provided a platform for students to see, and experience the true scent of, medicinal plants. The students collected over 50 varieties of plants, fruit, spices and pulses, which are of medicinal importance. They showcased the importance of growing medicinal plants.

The spectators, who comprised parents and students, were told about tea prepared from tulasi and ajwain leaves, which is used for the treatment of inflammation in the throat. The visitors saw fruit rich in vitamin C.

The significance of medicinal gardens, awareness about preservation, conservation and stewardship of the natural resources, made a huge impact on the minds of the spectators.

The main idea behind the exhibition was the vision of school chairman and founder Dr Augustine Francis Pinto to conserve nature and develop a complete knowledge about nature. The medicinal plant exhibition was a grand success and provided a path to reshape students’ attitude towards medicine and medicinal plants.
