CGC Jhanjeri students, even though staying at their homes adhering to COVID-19 lockdown, also participated actively in the event and planted tree saplings in and around their homes. This is not the first time when CGC Jhanjeri students have taken part in social welfare activities, visit to old homes, drug de-addiction campaigns, road safety campaigns, save water campaigns, are among the many other activities that are conducted here.
We are living in a time where natural habitat is compromised for the sake of development and there has been a continuous depletion of oxygen because of this. Activities like these have become all the more important. Speaking on the occasion, Rashpal Singh Dhaliwal, President CGC stated, “At CGC Jhanjeri, students are given not only academic prowess, but are also inculcated with moral and social values, and are engaged in such activities on a regular basis.”
