Mr Cholayil said the schools must initiate activities to bring together students, teachers, parents, various clubs, Students Police Cadets, National Service Scheme volunteers, scouts and guides, Red Cross volunteers, public libraries and youth clubs like Yuva Kendra.

The district collector also requested them to give a maximum amount for the scraps, which would indirectly go to the CMDRF. All the schools have been directed to form Haritha clubs to initiate these activities....
