World Environment Day – 2016

September 11, 2016 Arivu Events

The first meeting of Parents & Teachers for the academic year 2016-17 was held on 11.6.2016 at 8.15am.  The parents were apprised of the activities of the children and the copies of the school’s annual planner was distributed. After the meeting, to mark the ‘World Environment Day’ parents and children planted few saplings. Prior to this the ‘Environment Day’ was observed on 5.6.2016 by cleaning the school premises and planting of saplings by trustees and parents. To commemorate the ‘World Environment Day’ a special lecture by Sri Pavan Ramchandra, Mysore on ‘Red Ants’ (Kenjuga) at 6.30pm on the same day was arranged.  He mesmerized the audience by giving insight into the world of ants especially, the so called ‘Kenjuga’ in kannada.  He shared observations made over three years studying the colony of red ants found on a tree opposite to his home.  Sri Pavan made a powerful narration of life of kenjuga iruve with the help of photos and videos shot in an ordinary camera altered by him.  He was humble to share that his interest in ants developed after he bought a camera and he could dedicate some time in his busy business career.  Although Mr Pavan’s formal education is in ‘Kannada Literature’, the immense interest and passion towards ants had made him an Entomologist or more specifically a Myrmecologist (Myrmecology is a branch of entomology focusing on the scientific study of ants)! Sri Pavan appealed to the audience not to burn or destroy the ant colonies found on neighborhood trees for maintaining the ecological balance of pristine nature.   img_20160611_090134img_20160611_093158img_20160611_092153img_20160611_093330img_20160611_093256
