Action Plans of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Egmore, Chennai

Back

05/12/2017

As an initiative, to support and work towards making this world a better place to live in, the children of St Anthony’s were enlightened about the role of the International Presentation Association (IPA) and the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a meaningful assembly. 

To create awareness in the parents about the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the apt moment was the Annual Sports Meeting. The Opening Ceremony high-lighted the SDGs and International Year for the Development of Tourism. 

As the first step towards Sustainable Development Goal No 11 – Make Cities and Human Settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable, the staff and students of St Anthony’s ventured to clean the school campus and make it stone free. The staff and students actively participated and picked up a minimum of 25 stones per person. Within 10 minutes they had removed more than 25,000 stones. The stones were gathered and disposed of safely. 

The Captains of St Anthony’s came forward and took up the responsibility of making the campus paper free. They grouped themselves into the four ‘houses’ (a cluster of classes) and took up different areas of the school to make it eco-friendly. 

By 2030, our hope is that no one will go hungry anywhere in the world. Keeping this in mind, they celebrated World Food Day on 16 October, 2017. The students of Standards I and II presented an assembly on healthy food and junk food. Action songs, lively dance and colourful placards high-lighted the importance of the day. The aim of the day was to create public awareness on the World Food problems and strengthen solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty. The children generously contributed apples and biscuits and a few children from all classes collected the biscuits and apples and distributed them to the nearby neighbouring school and slums. 

Engaging in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is one way of making Nano’s vision alive today not words but deeds”. We express our gratitide to the Sisters, staff and pupils and all who helped make the vision of Nano alive by making this school environment more safe and more beautiful.
