World Earth Day

“We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation that can do something about it.”
               — Barack Obama
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 #climatechange, #biodiversityloss, and #dwindling natural resources.
The students of  Cambridge observed #WorldEarthDay on April 22, 2024, 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 and  highlighting the #significance of Earth Day. The global theme for this year’s Earth Day, “Planet vs Plastic,” was given special emphasis.
As part of the Earth Day celebrations, a special assembly was conducted by the students of #GradeVIII. Students took a pledge 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 dance and skit by students 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 from the #KindergartenWing expressed their views through #artandcraftwork based on the theme.
Primary Wing students took out a rally around the school, holding 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, poster making 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, helped consolidate their understanding.
Each member of School Community took a pledge to save Mother Earth by doing simple doable actions. The activities emphasized on the importance of food and water shortage, responsibility of managing the indoor plants, planted seeds,  bird feeders, an artificial river model, slogan writing and a special emphasis on #reduce #reuse #recycle to motivate the entire school.
The whole school took part in this endeavour and initiative, reminding that our continuing effort in our daily life will make this beautiful planet thrive.
