A seminar in the month of February was held for students on the need to save environment. In April, the Vanamahotsav week was observed, which was inaugurated with a tree plantation drive. Five hundred saplings were planted in the colonies in and around the school.

Several Inter-House competitions including poster-making and drawing were conducted which witnessed a huge participation. Students volunteered to clean the surroundings. Pamphlets were distributed among the public to promote cleanliness and hygiene.

Ferozpur, July 9: A ghastly accident occurred at the railway crossing near village Bidhipur at about 6 in the foggy morning. The engine of the Janta mail dragged a school bus to a considerable distance. Ten children in the age group of 10-14 were seriously injured and have been admitted in the government hospital. The driver of the bus absconded.

According to eye-witness accounts, the gatekeeper lifted the gate to allow the bus to move on. Both he and the driver failed to see the oncoming train in the dense fog.

The villagers rushed to the accident site and helped the rescue team. The railway authorities have announced an inquiry into the incident. The Punjab Chief Minister visited the village and announced a grant of one lakh each to the affected families.

The tragic incident was another evidence of how people ignore set rules and regulations and suffer as a result thereof.
