On October 2nd, 2018, 251 students of classes 8, 9 and 10 along with 60 teachers and 14 housekeeping staff went to different locations in groups as part of a cleanliness drive. The students were very enthusiastic and very sincerely cleaned the areas with their teachers. They also took the initiative to motivate passers-by to keep their areas clean. They spread messages such as “Swachh Bharat, Swasth Bharat”, “Keep Your Areas Clean”, “Clean India, Green India”, “Swachh Bharat Humara Lakshya Hai”, etc. Teachers took the attendance of the students when they returned to school. All of them washed their hands and were given Badam Milk and biscuit packets. They finally dispersed promising to keep the spirit of Swachh Bharat high in the days to come too in honour of Mahatma Gandhiji and Prime Minister Narendra Modiji’s appeal to every citizen to devote 100 hours a year towards cleanliness.
We at Amrita Vidyalayam Mysuru wholeheartedly thank our Honourable Prime Minister for creating a revolution in cleanliness! We also thank CBSE for taking the initiative for spreading the message of Swachh Bharat in schools!
