For the commemoration of Earth Week, students of Grades Nursery and Prep gathered together for a special assembly on Earth Day. The awareness programmes commenced with a short enactment on Taking Care of Our Mother Earth. Further, a skit was showcased by teachers in which Mother Earth was shown despondently pleading to the people who don't care for her. This made the entire issue more meaningful for the young learners. Teachers beautifully demonstrated the detrimental effect due to cutting down of tress, wasting electricity and water, noise and air pollution through vehicles. The slogans and posters in the demonstration reflected the appropriate solutions for the care and safety of earth by plantation of more trees, car pooling, making judicial use of resources, etc.
The dramatization effect helped students to connect with the issue easily. The discussion afterwards was convincing enough for students' understanding that they are truly motivated for the cause of saving Earth. It was a moment of proud hearing that children will ask their parents to follow the measures demonstrated.
Following the schedule, a club activity on 22nd April, International Earth Day was organized in which children watched audio-visuals about 'Save Earth' and exhibited their learning and ideas through drawings.
We strongly believe in instilling values like caring for the environment from a very young age. This small effort goes a long way for a greater good of the planet.
