St Kabir School, Sector 26 enrolled 50 students of Government High School, Mauli Jagran, on the ‘Young Filmmakers Academy ’ being conducted by a Mumbai-based company on the former’s premises.

“One of the most significant indicators of social progress is education and an opportunity of equal development. Therefore, we enrolled students of Government Public School, Mauli Jagran, free-of-cost on the course being conducted as part of the school’s summer camp,” said Gurpreet Bakshi, administrator of St Kabir School.

Students of both schools are now shooting a film titled ‘Niptaara’, based on a true story, scripted and directed by the students on the problem of water pollution in city.

The students visit various sites, learn the techniques involved in the art, and get a hands- on training with the equipment.

More than 70 students from both schools are participating in the process.

“I believe all private schools must take on the responsibility of development through building such partnerships as part of their corporate social responsibility,” said Bakshi.
