It was a moment of euphoria for Private International English School, Abu Dhabi as the school got qualified to plant five trees in Minae’, South Ras Al Khaimah (Skheibar Area) on Tuesday 18th December 2018. Nine students accompanied by five parents, the SSI coordinator Ms. Ushakumari, and Eco Club member Ms. Pushpa Joyce attended “For Our Emirates We Plant” campaign organized by the Emirates Environmental Group – EEG.  The ceremony was inaugurated by H.E. Engr. Sheikh Salem bin Sultan bin Saqr Al-Qasimi, President of Ras Al Khaima Civil Aviation and Board member of the Executive Council of the Government of Ras Al Khaima.

, “We are proud to play a humble role in this great initiative by converting Minae area into a full-fledged bee reserve by planting Sidr trees”.

Bhavan’s Abu Dhabi pulls out all the stops in the unyielding battle to protect Mother Earth from the vicious pile of waste from choking her to death. The One Root One Communi-tree (OROC) programme, initiated by Dubai Ministry jointly with Emirates Environment Group (EEG), was the springboard to this overwhelming achievement. The school collected a remarkable amount of nearly 8000 kgs of old and used newspapers entitling them to plant 5 trees in Sidr Nature Reserve in Rask Al Khaima.. The can collection drive in partnership with EEG also saw 25 kgs of cans collected from different sources.  The plastic collection campaign crossed the set target of 200 kgs, and reached a 238 with recyclable carry bags and bottles.

All the drives and campaigns mentioned above would not have met their targets without the whole-hearted support and encouragement of the parents’ community and neighbouring communities coupled with the unrelenting volunteering from the students.
