DRS International School celebrated Earth Day on the morning of 22nd April with an inspiring school assembly presentation by the students of Grade X-D. DRSIS joined the worldwide community of more than 193 countries to demonstrate support for the cause of environmental protection through a variety of activities such as: speech, pledge, poster presentation, tree plantation and cooperative painting.
Earth Day 2017’s Campaign is Environmental & Climate Literacy as education is the foundation of progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change who are aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection. In this regard, the students organized activities such as planting trees and others that highlighted the environmental and climate literacy. The students asked the Principal DrGaurav Muradia, Vice Principal Mr Rudolf Noronha, Ms Janet, Ms Abha and student representatives of each class to inaugurate the Earth day by making an Earth day Poster with the help of balloon stamp-painting in an expressionist art style. Students of X-D had marked their own miniature “better Earth” with balloons and paint. The students had fun signing their names on this unusual painting. The students gave an informative talk on the history of the Earth day and its significance to remember the emergence of the modern environmental movement since 1970. The assembly collectively pledged their commitment to the cause of conserving and protecting the planet and its natural resources to the best of their abilities. The message the assembly conveyed was “Let’s make every day the Earth day. Let’s treasure it and do not destroy it”.
