SCHE celebrates World environment day with Tree Plantation Drive

Joining the rest of the world to care for the earth, the Eco club of Salesian College of Higher Education Dimapur, organized a massive tree plantation drive on 5th June 2018. More than two hundred students participated in the plantation drive. Earlier on the day Fr. Tom Karthik the Rector of Salesian College and Fr.(Dr) Sunny Joseph the Rector of Good Shepherd Seminary addressed the students and exhorted them to be responsible stewards of the earth.

Nearly two hundreds plants were prepared for the plantation. Fr. Tom, Fr. Sunny, Dr. Fr. Policarp Xalxo the Principal along with teaching faculty planted the trees. Every student was given a sapling each and the places were allotted semester wise. The planting of the trees had dual purpose viz. to preserve the campus from soil erosion due to river flooding as well as to inculcate in the students love for environment.
