To think 'Green and clean' is one of the important agendas of the Hiranandani Foundation School, Powai curriculum. The school celebrated Environment Day on 21st July, 2014. Students of all standards were involved in various activities and took active part in competitions such as Collage and Poetry, but it was the quiz competition that took the cake. It was indeed gratifying to see the children taking such an active interest in the environment of the world.

These activities were conducted under the heading ‘Planet Savers’ for the school believes in the theme 'We are the World'.
Students not only develop their language but also impressed their observation powers through this programme.
The programme concluded with the Principal, Mrs. Kalyani Patnaik, making all students takes a pledge on 'Think Green, Think Clean for a safe and happy planet.' Flora and fauna conservation is the need of the hour. Young crusaders shall provide the cause with enthusiasm and fervor.
