The students planted saplings of indigenous varieties all over the campus. Students of other schools also participated in the endeavour.
Ina Baruah, former principal of Kendriya Vidyalaya IOC, Noonmati, arrived at the school along with the students and teachers of her school.
“We turned it into a unique event. This is a first not only in the school but also among all the Kendriya Vidyalayas in the city. The students are very enthusiastic about it,” KVK principal Dolly Das said.
