Environment Day Report
World Environment Day is the biggest annual event for positive environmental actions and this year’s theme ‘Connecting People to Nature’, invites one to think about how we are part of nature and how intimately we depend on it, it challenges us to find fun and exciting ways to experience and cherish this vital relationship. It was celebrated with great zeal and avidity in our school, with the students involved in the eco-thought through captivating activities organized.
The first activity was ‘Planet rap’, wherein the students were to compose their own environment jingle and set a tune to awaken the spirit of caring the fragile blue marble as seen from space but the most beautiful shrine for the most amazing creatures and life forms . It came out very well, and almost got the judges popping up to their appealing and striking tunes.
The second competition was ‘Rangoli.’ The main aim of this folk art is the revelation of beauty of nature and the acquisition of auspiciousness. The students depicted the theme through the use of biodegradable materials like turmeric, blended pastes of spinach and beetroot and their remarkable drawing strokes.
Last but not the least, we had ‘Pick a Plant’ competition and it had the same ‘Pick and Speak ‘ idea and out of twenty plants, students had to pick one and speak about the scientific name, medicinal and commercial uses and other details. It boosted the students’ knowledge in phytology to a higher extent.
The event was memorable and had a positive and a meaningful termination. It awarded all of us about the fragility and the vulnerability of the Biosphere and that a few hands brought up together can make a huge impact.
