Yoga helps children see the beauty and light within themselves, thereby boosting their self-confidence, allowing them to feel more comfortable with their bodies, and helping them to realize who they are. A child, who learns yoga, will be developing essential skills for a lifetime of health and wellness in mind, body and spirit.
Environment clubs are often at the heart of a school’s sustainable activities and help achieve meaningful change within school communities. One major task is the job of persuading students to join the club and participate in all the fundraising events. This is to make the teenagers to believe that they can help to protect and save the environment. Since our school campus is pretty big, the club is able to plant flowers and trees around the grounds and even maintain a little garden.
