This is the third consecutive year wherein DGPS has been declared as winners in most of their recycling campaigns. This year DGPS has bagged four awards for their recycling efforts in collecting cans, plastic, toners and mobiles. On 17th May, the top achievers of our various recycling campaigns collected the awards on behalf of the school during EEG’s prestigious ‘Annual Awarding Ceremony 2017’, The highest achievers and dedicated recyclers in the ‘individual, corporate and educational institution’ categories that reside in the UAE were recognized. Active participants who managed their waste effectively were praised for their efforts and encouraged to keep their recycling efforts going.
The winners of the Environmental Drawing Competition were also announced during the same ceremony. Nandini Lalwani of Year 10 received the First place and Sneha Kanth received the First merit for the Category 3 Sustainable Cities and Communities. Both our students were appreciated by all for their innovative approach in depicting their visions for a better future.
After the ceremony the students had an opportunity to see the artifacts of various schools displayed at EEG’s ‘Art from Waste’ Exhibition as well as all the winning entries of EEG’s Environmental Drawing Competition. The students attending the ceremony got an insight as to how they could enhance their green efforts to bring in greater accomplishments and inculcate a green attitude in their day to day actions.
