A group of eighteen students from class XII went to Delhi as part of their curriculum. Students kicked off their visit by going to Teen Murti Bhavan, former residence of the first Prime Minister of India, Jawahar Lal Nehru. Students attended the Parliament Session and actively witnessed the Lok Sabha proceedings.
They were thoroughly privileged to come across high profile dignitaries like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Maneka Gandhi to name a few. Their visit also included great learning experience at Rashtrapati Bhavan, St James’ Church followed by some leisure time at Connaught Place.
3. Labeling Trees at PPS Campus
It is important for the students to know the names of trees in their surroundings. It was decided by the Biology department to undertake a project for naming the trees for the year 2015-16. Students searched for the vernacular as well as the scientific names which was followed by identifying the trees with their names.
Empty oil tins found in the campus were reduced to strips and painted in red colour with the oil paint. Finally, the students nailed the strips on the trees.
This project has helped not only the students but everyone vising the campus to know about plethora of flora in the PPS Senior Wing.
