Under the aegis of Environment Club, the Earth day was celebrated with great joy and enthusiasm in the school premises on Wednesday, 22 April 2016. Celebrating this day was our way to just express how much we care about the future of our planet Mother Earth.
A special Assembly was carried out by the children which started with Madhur Vani followed by a thought of the day on a theme ‘Plant Trees’. For bringing in more awareness among children the current green news, at both National and International Level was delivered along with the weather report. A talk Show was presented on the theme ‘Greening your area’ which was informative and educative. A beautiful inspiring poem ‘Vriksh ’was recited to motivate and inspire the young minds. Students of class X displayed the green steps to be taken through placards. The students further spoke about how to celebrate everyday an earth day by simple measures taken by each one of us. A beautiful song ‘Tell Me Why’ was sung by our school choir which added a lot of energy and joy to the assembly.The School Principal, Mrs Asha Prabhakar planted a sapling of Neem to motivate children to plant trees and urged the students to maintain them till they grow. She sensitized the students towards taking simple green steps in our lives which will definitely bring a positive difference. The Vice Principal Mrs Anupma Motwani inspired children to be the change to bring in the change. She emphasized that each one is a green ambassador hence we must start planting a sapling on our birthday. The children and staff took a pledge for saving Mother Earth from the impending threats of global warming, pollution, deforestation and draught. The celebration in the assembly ended with singing of Shanti Mantra and our National Anthem.
To sensitize the children further with the history, facts and treaties and to spread a strong message to change our mind-sets to save our planet Earth, a display board was put up by the green ambassadors of XA.
