- SDG 4- Quality Education: Oakridge International School, Mohali launched a new project ‘Shiksha Hai Samadhan’ under the Share a Dream platform. The project ‘Shiksha Hai Samadhan’
focuses on imparting educational resources to people who are not well versed. Student of grades 4 and 5 volunteered to teach a person for a minimum of six months, setting goals for their students and preparing lesson plans. Students also monitored and recorded the progress of the person’s learning. This initiative
provided an opportunity for someone to learn but, at the same time, helped Oakridgers become responsible citizens.
- SDG 15- Life on Land: The school took the initiative of adopting a rock python at the Chatbir Zoo, Chandigarh under World Conservation Day celebration. The parents participated by volunteering to organise a school-wide tombola and raised funds to adopt an animal for a year. Teachers created the tombola tickets which were distributed to the parents. Then the Share A Dream committee members then hosted the event happen virtually.
- SDG 2- Zero Hunger: The community joined hands together to help and make the world a sustainable place by an attempt to reduce food waste. On this Food Wastage Awareness Day, Oakridgers pledged to ‘Project Clean Plate’. Parents, students and facilitators of Oakridge International School extended their support by campaigning for the ‘Project Clean Plate’ and tagging the school on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook. The campaign successfully impacted the community and spread the message of reducing the amount of food waste.
Projects initiated independently of any organization by students, teachers and/or staff to serve the Sustainable Development Goals, to make a difference to the local or wider community.
