OIS students back less use of paper

The Peninsula

A team of Grade 5 students from Olive International School (OIS),  successfully completed a project titled “Reduce the Wastage of Paper to Save Trees” as part of the ‘Science Project‘organised by The Department of Scientific Research at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE). 

The team, comprising of Mohammed Jiyad, Mritika Karthigeyan and Neha John, completed the project under the supervision of Anupama Sajith. 

The project focused on various areas whereby the usage of paper can be reduced. It highlighted the fact that paper is made from trees and in order to produce paper, trees are cut thus causing direct damage to the environment. The team ensured to create awareness of the importance of reducing the use of paper via interesting posters as well as class to class campaigning. As a result of this campaign, all school teachers assured their total support towards reducing use of papers by sending student worksheets online. 

OIS Principal, Jacob KM, assured them of processing most of the school circulars online and also taking up the task of processing admissions entirely online in the near future. The team conducted campaigns supported by a message from Vincent Van Gogh saying “great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
