A bicycle ride around Haldia Township was conducted by our school on the eve of World Bicycle Day on 16th June 2022. Around fifty students from Classes 8 to 12 participated in this event. The rally was supervised by the local police and by our school teachers.
The rally started at 9:00 am. All the students cycled up to Jawahar Tower. There we met the Deputy Chairman of Haldia Dock Complex Shri A.K Mehra. He encouraged and appreciated our initiative of the bicycle ride. He addressed us and advised us to ride a bicycle as it reduces the use of automobiles, hence reducing pollution.
Before he could flag off the bicycle ride we requested Chairman Sir to make arrangements for making a bicycle arena and a bicycle track. He assured us that he will look into this matter at the earliest. Then we were given chocolates from the Haldia Dock Complex and we set off on our World Bicycle Day Awareness Ride.
