 Solar Energy-The Sun is simply one big battery for us

Keeping pace with the advancement of technology and in an endeavor to contribute constructively to the society, the school has installed two solar panels , each of 25KVA capacity .The two panels together generate 50KVA of power on a regular basis. During the school hours, the electrical energy requirement of the school is met by the power generated by the solar panels as well as supply by BSES. However after 2pm, the power generated by the solar panels is supplied to BSES for their use, thereby improving our credit rating with them.

 Water Harvesting System-Save water Save life

The TIS family understands its responsibility towards protecting the environment and conservation of natural resources so as to ensure that the succeeding generation is not deprived of any of the resources and privileges which our present generation enjoys.Realizing that water is one of the key resources and is a source of life on earth, an initiative was undertaken about 15 years ago initiated by Mr Deepak Sen, to have rain water harvesting pits. There are now 8 pits in the school campus. The depth is about 20 feet each. The catchment enables replenishment of the depleting and falling groundwater levels of the areas around the school itself. The Green Brigade Club of the students make their valuable contribution in generating awareness about this pressing need for conserving water. Rainwater harvesting is an ancient practice which was lost in time and is now being revived as a cost effective approach to arrest the diminishing water table.

 No Plastic Zone- Say no to Plastic

Our school is a “No Plastic Zone”. There is strict restriction on the usage of plastic bags by students, staff and visitors in the school. The school guard is authorized to stop the entry of any person in possession of the plastic bag. If he notices any person carrying a plastic bag, he politely asks the person to leave it at the gate. Students have been sensitized against the use of plastic as it is an environmental hazard and pollutes land, water and air. Students use paper bags or cloth bags to carry their belongings. They constantly take efforts to make their parents aware of the disadvantages of using plastic bags.This is a small but significant step that our school has taken for the betterment of the future generations. Such environment friendly efforts are constant endeavors of the school.

 Paper Recycling- Because We Care We Recycle

“A society is defined not only by what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy.”

Understanding the fact that use of paper is unavoidable, particularly in schools, TIS, EOK has taken the stride to recycle paper and use it for making folders, decoration pieces, etc. The school has a paper recycling unit where extra newspapers, old circulars, extra sheets are collected from each class through a paper recycling box and sent to the unit. Students are taught the process of recycling paper. Hand made paper are being made under the guidance of teachers of the school. Towards optimum usage of paper, the staff of the school follows the principle of using both sides of the paper. Instructions are also provided to students not to misuse their notebooks.

SO WASTE LESS…..RECYCLE MORE…… LIVE WELL
