Gurgaon's Scottish High International School observes Car Free Day
To reduce Carbon Foot Printing and making the air quality of the city better Scottish High International School along with Gurgaon's Joint Commissioner of Police took the initiative to sensitize the citizens about the Car Free Day.

School's Director, Sudha Goyal issued an awareness letter to parents who use personal vehicles to pick up and drop their wards to school to avail school transport thus saving fuel, energy and time.

Sudha Goyal said, "It is high time we take our city back from the monsters of air pollution and constant traffic jams and develop a cleaner and a more sustainable Gurgaon; a city that our kids will be proud to live in."

According to a press release, talks on World Car free day were also organized in the Initial and Primary Classes by the Home Room Tutors and by the environmental club members in the senior wing about practice of using sustainable transport as a part of their daily lives. The aim of the talk was to reduce car dependency and ultimately reducing air pollution.

The teachers and the staff members were also encouraged to use alternate modes of transport like buses, metro, walking, cycling or carpooling.

The students of class XI IBDP took this initiative by making and designing posters/placards on car free day and showcasing them at various junctions and intersections on Golf Course Road and multinational company Genpact to create awareness on using alternative mode of public transport by using metro, car pool, cycling and by walking.

The Scottish High students of classes IX to XII interacted with Joint Commissioner of Police and Traffic Tau where the students were explained and motivated about the traffic rules, the after effects of underage driving and road rage. A road safety quiz was also conducted for the students.

Contributing to this, the Chairman of the school Kartikay Saini pedaled all the way to office on a bicycle to not only be a part of the awareness drive but also to pedal forward the message that 'It is time for everyone to come forward and volunteer in conserving energy and fuel'... An apt way to lead the cause by being an example!
