Every year the student will be undergo different set of environmental activities enabling them to change their mindset to a caring, eco friendly and a responsible citizen.
In order to be part of Green School Programme the school will enter into an agreement for at least one year period with WWF - Pakistan and will ensure that all the students will participate in the proposed plan to be eligible to get a Green School Certification by WWF - Pakistan.
The registration fee to the Green School Programme is Rs.85 per month by each student. The partner school will include Rs.85 to its regular fee structure and transfer the funds to WWF - Pakistan account on an agreed date.
The additional income by adding Rs.85 per month will be exempted from the Annual Income Tax liability of Green School.
