The school has two active clubs its students can take part in,
1. ECO CLUB
The Eco –club of NTHSS was set up in the year 2006 with 55 members from various classes with the initiative of the Principal B.B Chetri, who himself is an ardent lover of Nature. The club ever since its formation has been trying in its small way to create awareness among the students in particular and in general to other stake holders in the vicinity of the school. The students are directly engaged in the club acting as flag-bearers for disseminating the immediate environment and environmental issues. It also takes up different programmes throughout the year to highlight the environmental issues.
This year the club organized a Field trip to Nagaland Zoological Park, Rangapahar on April 25th 2015, so that the students get first hand experienced of the nature and the valuable products of the forest which requires preservation.
On the line of the Field Trip, Eco Club formally organized Plantation and Cleanliness Drive on this particular day of the club took the activities on a much bigger scale and covering a vast area under its cleanliness dive and planted hundreds of sapling of rare and normal species.
To get the first hand experience, on the line of ‘Go Green’ of the Club, a field trip was organized to the ‘greenest village’ of Nagaland i.e. Khonoma village on 07/05/15. Since the journey was suppose to be tedious one, the club stick to its senior member students. The village taught literally to every one of us in the trip the famous saying of Gandhiji “There is enough in nature for one’s need but not for the one’s greed”. The village details will take pages and pages to write still it would not finish but in one line: the village set an example how human and nature can co-exist not only that both can thrive at the same time.
