Earth Day Celebration
Faridabad, April 20, 2018: The Pre-Primary Wing of the School celebrated Earth Day to show support and educate students about environmental protection. The aim was to encourage students to do things that will benefit the Earth. Students were involved in various activities like visiting the School garden where they all had a great time observing various seasonal flowers and plants. Students were astonished to see so many varieties of plants and learn that each plant has different colour, leaves, texture, size, etc. They also learnt how a sapling grows into a plant or a tree. Students understood that there is so much given to us by Mother Earth and we must conserve it. Students were happy to learn watering the plants, save water while using it, save electricity by switching off fans & lights before moving out, leave their finger and hand prints on the Earth’s cut-out and cleaning of the surroundings & gardens. Students thoroughly enjoyed different activities and had a wonderful experience.
Poster and folder with the message – ‘Together we can make every day Earth Day and each one of us can make a difference’ was given to the students.
