Pune: With a focus on protecting and nurturing the environment and the children in a parallel world, Billabong High International School (BHIS) Amanora joined hands with the Rotary Club of Pune Amanora to organise a marathon to create awareness around water conservation. The proceeds from the run will be used for a sustainable endeavour to conserve water and make drinking water available to the remote corners of the state of Maharashtra.
Titled Neerathon, the run was flagged off on February 26, 2023, in the presence of the Rotary Club members. More than a thousand people participated in the event. There was a 3k, 5k, and 10k run.
The BHIS Amanora campus will be organising a ‘Expo Drive’ a day prior to the run—February 25 February from 9:00 am onwards—which would feature stalls from NGOs such as Anubhuti Social Empowerment and Aarambh.
Commenting on the success of the initiative, Aditi Mukherjee, Principal, BHIS Amanora, said, “As educators, it is important to lead by example. It is imperative that we commit ourselves to nurturing the environment along with the young minds around us. Teaching sustainability in schools will prepare the future generations with the right knowledge, skills, attitudes and values needed to create a sustainable future. Imagine the collective impact that educators, students and parents can make towards building a greener future. We are proud to partner with an institution like Rotary Club for such an endeavour.”
Mr. Abhishek Rathi of the Rotary Club said, “We are happy to partner with an institution like Billabong High International School yet again. We believe in the school’s commitment to foster sustainable measures to conserve the environment early on in a child’s life. We intently look forward to more such associations with the Team Billabong that have a deep social impact on everyone’s lives.”
