THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Government LP School, Channankara, has been taking efforts to encourage students to go organic. The school has been growing a small vegetable garden on its premises for sometime now, while the students are given seeds to take home as part of the campaign to popularise farming at their homes as well.

Now, the students have gone a step further, by coming out with a 100-page agricultural magazine. The handwritten magazine, titled ‘Njaatuvela’, has been prepared by the students of class III and IV and was released recently at an event conducted on the campus. This is the first such initiative of the school.

The children have been assisted by the school faculty as well as the panchayat agricultural  authorities. The magazine has included everything from fun-filled riddles and proverbs related to farming, to agriculture FAQs and other titbits.

According to Rajesh Lal, a faculty member, ‘’By encouraging and assisting students in collecting information related to agriculture, we want the students to be more inquisitive and interested in the topic. As Chingam I is also Karshika Day, we decided to observe the event by bringing out this magazine. We would be bringing out similar pieces the next year too.”   Each student was given packets containing vegetable seeds and saplings in a venture inaugurated by Kadinamkulam grama panchayat education standing committee chairperson Naseema Kabeer. A medicinal garden was also inaugurated. The school has started another activity to plant saplings on the banks of the Parvathi Puthanar stretch flowing near the school.
