Cleanliness is next to Godliness” was the mantra of Mahatma Gandhiji. He demonstrated, propagated and insisted on individual and community cleanliness throughout his life. Following his footprints, students of Class XI of St. Mark’s Sr. Sec. Public School, Meera Bagh initiated a community cleanliness drive on October 2, 2017. The young students began their initiative by undertaking a Swatchhta Pledge wherein they pledged to make Gandhi’s vision of clean and green India -a reality. It was followed by a brief interactive session in which students recalled incidents from Gandhiji’s life. Thereafter armed with brooms, dustpans, garbage bins and righteous zeal the young brigade started ‘cleaning up’ and ‘sensitizing’ people in the LIC colony and areas adjoining the school. The students spoke to residents as well as passerbys and encouraged them to contribute to swatchchta mission.

Shramdaan by the students of our school is a continuation of the proud legacy and tradition which was started more than six years ago wherein we pay homage to Bapu by incorporating his ideals in our life.
