The unusual circumstances around us could not dampen the spirit of our pupils at Garden High School IISER Kolkata. From their confinement at home they have put together a brief programme to celebrate the 159 th birth anniversary of Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore. Hope you enjoy it.
All departments of the School will be closed at 1p.m. today, 17 August 2018 as a mark of respect to the former Prime Minister of India, Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Parents are advised to pick up their wards accordingly.
As part of the IUCN project, a backyard survey was conducted on 18 September 2017 with 22 pupils of Class VII of Garden High School – IISER Kolkata. The pupils were guided by 4 teachers.
The team set out at 9:00 a.m. for the field trip, which emphasized on observation and identification of the diverse variation of birds, butterflies and plants within the campus along with their geographical location and habitat.
The pupils identified and photographed close to 15 species of birds, butterflies and plants.
It was an immensely enriching out-of-classroom activity for the pupils. 2 research scholars from the IISER Biodiversity laboratory were part of the team as well.
Garden High School – IISER Kolkata Campus took an initiative to work on climate change, bio-diversity awareness and conservation through small but significant projects with the pupils of Class VII under a programme named “Citizen Science Survey based Programme” initiated by WildRoots India.
This is a part of the “NatureForAll” campaign, which is launched by the IUCN – International Union for Conservation of Nature.

It was a rich and enduring experience for the pupils as they participated in different environment related activities and also spoke about their views regarding the importance of bio-diversity.
