As it is the responsibility of everyone to protect environment, the school management has conducted this programme. Later, students took the idols they have prepared to their houses.
The aim of the programme was to immerse idols at home itself in plant pots to protect environment, teachers said. Chairman of Nagarjuna Group of Schools, M Shivashankar Reddy and Director Sridevi congratulated students and the event organiser Phanindra.
