Which is why we have students from the Environmentalist Foundation of India (EFI) visiting us this week, to present a 20- minute musical drama on how you can be responsible and have a good time too!
 
Come join us as we show you how you can go green this Diwali!
 
D-Day drama will highlight on the issues of Child Labour, Pollution, Health Impacts and the negative impacts that it has on animals.
