How do children take up social issues? Kokkallur School teaches a lesson

How can children contribute to its neighborhood,applying  their learning and research?

A fine answer for this question is Kokkallur Government Higher Secondary School,Balussery in Kozhikode district,a southern state of Kerala in India.

“A comprehensive study on the negative impact of brick paving in Kokkallur area”, a project ,presented in the National Children’s Congress,held at Ahamedabad, by the school, got national recognition.

Concrete brick paving is very popular practice in Kerala households.

When these students with the support of their  guide Sindhu ER,Botany teacher of the school, took a scientific study ,the result was an eye-opener to the society,we live-in.

The study  points out the need of finding environment-friendly  alternatives to brick paving,which causes sever damage to our environment.

It will make damage to soil’s natural existence.It also reduces the water level on earth.And,heat level also is increased as the result of the brick paving.The wide use of the system doubles the affect of global warming and climate change.

“Now, cities as well as rural country sides  are largely inter-locked,using concrete bricks  or built on, so there is no vegetation or moisture to absorb heat and cool the landscape; asphalt, concrete and rooftops simply absorb the sun’s energy during the day and re-release it at night.”-says Sindhu ER,teacher guide.

“Essentially, in brick-paved areas with extensive water resistant surfaces, water can’t soak naturally into the earth—instead it rushes across the landscape, carrying pollutants and biological contaminants into our waterways like lakes and rivers, poisoning fish, wildlife, and human being.”-says Anuvind P.R, team leader of the study.

Shyamrin Krishna,Athena R Krishnan,Arjun.S,Abhimanya Mohan are other members of the team.

These students examined all aspects of the concrete-brick paving by researching,analyzing and comparing data,they collected through out their study in Kokkallur village.

It is the third consecutive time,the school winning national merit.

Roughly,700 projects ,covering all states in India and union territories,have been received by the Congress.Fifteen projects have been selected as best and this is the only project being selected in Kerala state to the national level.
