Neralu invites all schools to engage in an exciting project to explore the world of trees and connect with nature. These trees, stand tall as our silent neighbours, and bear within them endless stories to share. From measuring trees to painting a wall with trees, this could be a fun and informal way of learning about our city’s rich natural heritage.
We encourage each and every school in the city to register, pick a suitable activity from the list provided, execute it with the help of students, teachers and parents; document it, and share it back with us. Let’s work together as one large community to be the voice for our tall, silent friends.
The activities help bring students outdoors and appreciate trees, thereby enabling them to observe and record the diversity of life. It’s a hands on activity and makes the learning more fun. To participate, here are a few simple steps.
