Highlighting one of the 17 SDG’s (Sustainable Development Goals), the theme of SDG 11-‘Sustainable Cities and Communities’ was well showcased through an amalgamation of activities within the precincts of the school campus.

The learners belonging to clubs ranging from the Expressions to Performing Arts displayed their skills through innovative projects, Powerpoint Presentations, role plays, self-composed poetry, mimes, documentaries, podcasts and videos, working models based on scientific expression and  interviews among a host of other creations to make the day engaging and fulsome. To add to the zeal even preschool learners of nursery and KG joined in through their earth song, role play, cultural performances and sloganeering to contribute towards sustainability.

The objectives of the event: To enhance creative and thinking skills of the learners, to understand the need to encourage sustainability, to self-reflect on values and attitudes in your community, and the importance of co-existing in harmony among others were duly met by its culmination.

The two day event commenced with an address by BHISN Principal, Sharmila Chatterjee, who stressed upon the power of learning-by-doing as the call of the hour, elaborating upon the school’s role and responsibility in providing the wings of imagination and change to its learners.
