Earth Day- In this modern era , concerns about environmental degradation and climatic change is at its peak. Actions speak louder than words and the little ones are the real harbingers of change. The Junior Department celebrated Earth Day on 21 April, 2017 to understand the importance of Mother Earth. .To create awareness among the tiny tots to care for and preserve the earth, many activities were scheduled for the day. A rally was organized by the KG teachers with children chanting slogans and moving around the School campus with posters. Nursery children had an activity of leaf printing and fingertips printing on a chart paper. Montessori students had done cotton dabbing on an outline of a tree.
As this year the theme of Earth Day was ‘Climate Literacy’ the students of Classes 1 and 2 had Pledge writing activity on how to save the resources. The students of Class 3 were told to sketch on the theme- ‘Create your own Earth’ – ( imagine , draw and colour ) and the students of class 4 had Slogan writing and Poster making activities. Children were very enthusiastic and they all promised to save their Mother Earth. The teachers taught them the 3 R’s – Reduce , Reuse and Recycle. They also explained them that by following these little steps we can make a change. So, let reduce , reuse and recycle be the mantra of the age.
In order to spread awareness of technology, the week from 24.04.2017 to 28.04.2017 was celebrated as Technology Week. The concept of technology was introduced to the tiny tots of KG. Keeping in mind the fact that children should begin learning keyboard skills at a young age, keyboards were provided to each section. The teachers taught them to identify and use the alphabet and number keys. Children were taken to the Computer lab and briefed about the basic computer components. It was a wonderful experience for the Kg kids. The Computer Department sensitized the students in the primary level by preparing a PPT presentation for Classes I-IV. Teachers through the presentation briefed up the children about the dos and don’ts of using technology.
