World Pulses Day Celebration @ GGS

World Pulses Day is a day to celebrate the many health, environmental, and economic benefits of eating pulses. Pulses are a type of legume that include lentils, chickpeas, and beans, and are an important source of protein and other essential nutrients. They are also sustainable crops that can help to reduce soil degradation, improve water use efficiency, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Recently, the learners of Gajera Global School celebrated World Pulses Day in a unique way. The celebration was not just limited to eating and cooking with pulses, but it also integrated science and sustainability into the event. The students learned about the importance of pulses in our diet and their impact on the environment. They also explored how pulses can be grown in an eco-friendly and sustainable manner.

One of the highlights of the celebration was a cooking competition where students prepared a variety of dishes using pulses as the main ingredient. The competition was not only about cooking, but it also focused on incorporating sustainable practices in the kitchen, such as using locally sourced ingredients, reducing food waste, and minimizing packaging.

Another activity that was organized was a workshop on the science behind growing pulses. The students learned about the different types of pulses and their nutritional content. They also learned about the benefits of using pulse crops in agriculture, such as their ability to fix nitrogen in the soil and improve soil health.

The celebration was not limited to indoor activities, as students also took part in a pulse planting activity. They learned about the importance of planting pulses in the garden and how it can help to reduce the dependence on chemical fertilizers. The students also learned about different pulse varieties and how they can be grown in different regions.

The celebration of World Pulses Day at Gajera Global School showed that incorporating science and sustainability into the curriculum can be both fun and educational. The students learned about the importance of eating healthy, sustainable food and how they can make a positive impact on the environment by growing and eating pulses.

World Pulses Day is a great opportunity for schools to educate students about the benefits of eating and growing pulses. By integrating science and sustainability into the celebration, Gajera Global School has shown that learning can be both fun and educational, and has helped to raise awareness about the importance of eating healthy and sustainable food.
