Students at Lady Maclagan High School at the Lower Mall learnt about the importance of cleanliness in a special presentation by the Lahore Waste Management Company (LWMC) on Tuesday.
The LWMC launched a programme earlier this month to raise awareness about good hygiene through lectures, presentations, and painting and writing competitions at government schools in the city. In the second activity of the campaign, the LWMC’s communication department made a detailed presentation on the benefits of cleanliness to primary students. Teachers and the principal and vice principal were also present. The students then took part in a colouring and drawing competition on ‘How to keep our city clean’ and an essay writing competition. The school was also presented a dustbin to be placed near the canteen.
The company said in a press release that it aimed to inculcate a sense of responsibility about the environment among the young so they could pass it on to future generations. The LWMC is hosting weekly activities at government schools around Lahore.
