UNASA-UKZN Chapter Presents Trees to Sastri College
Sastri College hosted the United Nations Association of South Africa (UNASA)-UKZN Chapter as part of their Arbour Week awareness campaign.
The College welcomed the Chapter representatives with open arms in their efforts to promote Arbour Week and the importance of trees for the environment.
Indigenous trees - generously donated by Dr Sershen Naidoo of the School of Life Sciences on UKZN’s Westville campus – were given to the College. The importance of sustainability was emphasised by Chapter members to both school pupils and staff.
The College impressed all with its initiatives to practice sustainability, having a garden of its own as well as water catchment areas in different parts of the school grounds. Students from UNASA-UKZN and pupils from Sastri College were on hand to plant the trees.
Teachers and school management thanked UNASA-UKZN for choosing their school as the site for their presentation, with both groups wanting to work together in similar projects in the future.
