Good job Principal, teachers and students of St.Lawrence Junior College. But this task should not stop by just distributing saplings. Please make sure that every student take care of atleast one or two saplings and there must be some kind of continous assessment and monitoring of progress periodically. May be these children can be alloted extra marks or grades basis the result which will encourage the children and will also help in realising the goal. School is the ideal platform to impliment these ideas. The 2 saplings which I got from school (from Ananthrai master) during my high school days are now big grownup trees today and i am proud of my teacher and my achievement.

Celebrating the Vanamahotsava is very good concept. It should not be restrict only to the celebration but also the follow up is equally important. The schools, colleges and other associations should always focus on the importance of growing and protection of the trees. Every year global temperature is rising due to decrease of forest, greenary and increase in the pollution. At the early age of children if we put these importance in thier mind then everything will be alright when they grow up. Childeren should encourage to grow the trees around school campus, which is very essential. It will have many advantages.Trees will consume CO2 and release oxygen and also enhance the asthetical look of the capus and give shade thus reducing the temerature.
