“We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation that can do something about it.”
— Barack Obama
The students of Grades I-V observed World Earth Day on April 20, 2023, with sincerity and a sense of commitment. A range of events were organized to sensitize the children about the importance of conserving natural resources and motivate them to contribute towards protecting their environment. Posters and banners were put up across the school to build awareness, and the Junior library was transformed into a hub of celebration with messages and slogans aesthetically displayed on the boards to highlight the significance of Earth Day. The global theme for this year’s Earth Day, “Invest In our Planet,” was given special emphasis.
As part of the Earth Day celebrations, a special assembly was conducted, beginning with a morning prayer. Students took a pledge in their respective classrooms to preserve and conserve the self-sustaining planet Earth. The young choir sang a soulful and melodious song dedicated to Mother Earth. A thought-provoking Nukkad Natak by students of Grade 3-5 highlighted the importance of fighting climate change and conveyed a strong message about the little ways by which we can take care of our Earth. Our Little Earth buddies expressed their views poetically by reciting a poem based on the theme. A glimpse of steps taken by our Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi was showcased through a relevant presentation which inspired young minds to save Mother Earth.
Classes 1 and 2 students took out a rally around the school with placards to raise awareness among their peers to protect their Mother Earth. The students shared their reflections on what Earth Day means to them and expressed that every day should be an Earth Day for every citizen of the planet Earth. They raised slogans and voiced their thoughts with great zeal and enthusiasm, emphasizing the need for everyone to invest their time and effort in protecting the environment and reducing the impact of global warming.
As an integrated learning experience, posters highlighting the importance of Earth Day were put up on the corridor boards, and students were encouraged to share their ideas and opinions on being Earth Saviors through focused home assignments. Regular discussions in lessons helped consolidate their understanding. The HOJS, Ms. Seema Khurana, appreciated the participants for their praiseworthy performance.
