It’s ironical that we celebrate Earth Day just once a year. We should remember and be thankful to mother earth for every day we spend on Earth- our planet. After all, each day on Earth is your day and my day of existence and celebration of life. Staford School believes in making its students conscientious individuals and responsible denizens of the world, hence it took up this opportunity, yet again to reiterate the importance of inculcating good habits that would help in conserving energy, non-renewable resources and making our earth greener and healthier, through a special presentation organized in the morning assembly, by the students of class III.
The special presentation began with a song “I am the Earth and the Earth is me” sung by Aakriti Gupta, Rohan Gupta, Rutba Naseer Khan and Raina Mehtab Khan of Class III A. The song sent out a strong message to preserve all the natural resources as they are important to the Earth in the same way as our body parts are important to us.
Next we had a short skit “Save the Earth” performed by the students of class III B. The skit sent out a message to save earth by protecting the environment, keeping the water, air and soil pollution free and emphasized on the importance of planting trees. Shreya Rathore, Syed Ali Mujtaba, Abdul Azeez, Ved Gupta, Rayan Khan, Fazilat Zehra and Siddhansh Saxena participated in the presentation and urged the children to save earth through various ways, such as: proper waste disposal, conserving energy and water, recycling refuse, and protecting flora and fauna.
The special assembly ended with a speech by Yashi Rastogi and Sohaib Ashraf of Class III A who highlighted the significance and importance of this day and how it had brough about positive changes in the society.
Our Principal Ms. Vijaya Kumar, interacted with the students after the speech eliciting their inputs on how each Stafordian can contribute in saving earth. Ma’am also gave them valuable suggestions on simple little things they can do for saving the environment.
The Pre-primary section of our school too was involved in the initiative of saving Earth and celebrating the Earth Day. They were taught about the importance of conserving water and of loving all animate and inanimate objects that fill our life with happiness.
