Earth Day Celebrations
For the past 40 years, Earth Day has been celebrated around the world to call attention to some of our most pressing environmental and social problems, including climate change, biodiversity loss, and dwindling natural resources.
The day started with a beautiful message where students were reminded of 5 actions towards safe earth. The whole school, whether it was the students, support staff, teachers, guards, admin staff or helpers took part in this endeavour and initiative. Each one of them took a pledge to save Mother Earth by doing simple doable actions. Our continuing effort in our daily life will make this beautiful planet thrive.
To understand - the magnitude of the problem, students celebrated Earth Day on April 22nd, 2019
Grade 1 Activities: To emphasize the importance of food and water shortage, the students conducted a food drive in the dining hall of the school. They requested their peers to serve themselves small portions of the food rather than piling their plates and return for seconds, thus avoiding wastage. The students discarded the waste in the biodegradable and non-biodegradable baskets. They also made a list of any leakages observed. A glass "Earth Jar" was placed in the dining hall for the students to write why and how they should, could and would save food and water.
Grade II-IV Activities: The students took the responsibility of managing the indoor plants, setting up a schedule with the help of their teachers to water the plants. They planted seeds of Aloe Vera, Coriander, Lemongrass and Tulsi. Students wrote poems and shared why it is important to take care of our home, Planet Earth.
Grade V Activities: They announced the Earth Hour and took on the initiative to unleash a week-long crusade to encourage the entire school to switch off electric lights and ACs in favour of and using natural light for an hour. They made posters and campaigned vigorously to motivate the entire school. The electricity consumption data was shared in the assembly as a proof of their contribution to a larger goal of conserving our precious resources.
