The Waste Management Department of Dubai Municipality had launched The Clean Up the World campaign 2011, under the slogan “Our Place ... Our Planet...Our Responsibility”. This was the country’s largest voluntary clean up drive and it had entered its eighteenth consecutive year, having started in 1994.About 55 schools participated in this Drive. TMS, like always, took part in this drive with a great deal of enthusiasm. About 92 students participated in this drive along with the Head Teacher’s& Members of the Environmental Group. MrsBalaSadasivan, represented TMS and presented a very interesting and brief talk on why it is necessary to save the environment. Our Girls
took part in the clean up for about an hour and as a result collected different kinds of waste items usually found on beaches in the form of plastics, aluminum cans, paper items, glass, cigarettes butts and so on. They were provided with T-shirts bearing the slogan, caps and gloves before the clean up process. On completion they were served with refreshments in the form of juice and snacks. As usual, at the end, the participating schools were presented with appreciation awards and thanked for their continuous support.
