The ongoing “Grow with The Grange” campaign in collaboration with Green Steps involves planting trees along the Sumatran coast, offsetting carbon footprints and fostering environmental stewardship. The school’s pledge to plant a tree for every student has planted 87 trees since June of 2023 and offset 1.91 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere.
