New Delhi, May 2019: As part of ISA projects, we at Apeejay School, Saket, have completed 7 projects, each having international dimension and 3 having international collaboration, with schools in the Netherlands, UAE and Nepal. All projects were based on UN sustainability goals.
The action plans for these projects, encompassing 8 months and classes from Pre-Primary to Class XII, were formulated in May 2019. 200 students from the current Class IX and X participated in the project titled ‘Sugar Intake Amongst School Children’.

The project concluded with a presentation on May 10, 2019 and included several topics like - result of research on sugar content in aerated drinks and chocolates, consequences of high intake of sugar in a student’s diet, graphical comparison of obese population in U.K, U.S.A, Australia, France & India, assessing of sugar intake by some students and concluding whether their diet was appropriate or needed changes. Students made presentations and also enacted a skit.
