Government Middle School (GMS) Botsa was declared a “Green School” on October 10 under the initiative of Kohima Forest Division’s Green Initiative Program which mainly focuses on schools and their commitment to green activities.

DFO Kohima, Rongsenlemla Imchen in a release stated that the Green Initiative Program has two components, namely Green Future Nursery and Plastic Free School programs, which aim to create awareness about planting more and reducing plastic pollution respectively. She said GMS Botsa already has a Green Future Nursery under this program and with the school being declared ‘Plastic Free’ on October 10, the school has become the first Green School in Nagaland. 

During the program, the DFO highlighted the importance of the role of students in fighting plastic pollution and reminded the gathering that plastic free does not necessarily mean zero use of plastic but reducing the plastic footprint, especially with regard to ‘single use plastic’ items. She thanked the school authority and the students for their active participation towards the initiative. Forest ranger Sanchu spoke about the effects of plastic pollution on the environment and the responsibilities of the students towards fostering a plastic free lifestyle. On the occasion, the students and faculty made plastic free commitments through taking a pledge administered by forest ranger Pezaneinuo.

To mark the occasion, “eco friendly waste bins” were also given to the school. The school authority thanked the department for the initiative and assured it to continue with their green commitments.
