“Creativity is making marvellous out of discarded”
In today’s world recycling has a very important place. There are a lot of things around that are labelled as dump. But the irony is that most of the dump collected is useful for others if recycled.
Hence utilizing the best from unwanted things has become a generic necessity of every human’s life. These craft from waste activities can be incorporated into your kid’s childhood to make for a greener future.
Excellia School organized an activity on Best out of Waste on 5th May,2018 to culminate the values saving the environment from degradation. The students took part enthusiastically and made wonderful crafts from the discarded materials.
We at Excellia School abide by this quote and thus give a crucial position to extra-curricular activities and fun events. This helps freshen up the young minds and breaking away from the daily monotony.
