The above Cree Indian proverb makes it crystal clear that even the natives knew what carries true value in this world.,
This morning, Lodha World School, Palava reverberated with the excited chatter of the students who were prepared to create awareness on the environment on the occasion of ‘Earth Day’ which is celebrated on April 22. The Earth Day events commemorate what is considered the birth of the modern environmental movement. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 on college campuses across the U.S. and was the invention of Gaylord Nelson, whose idea for Earth Day was born out of watching the momentum of the student-led anti-war protests of the 1960s. This day of nature’s equipoise was sanctioned in a Proclamation written by McConnell and signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations. It has grown into a global event recognized by over 192 countries.
Devoting a special day to helping for the earth is a way to demonstrate how much we care about the future of our planet. It reminds us to be better stewards of our earth.
We celebrated Earth Day with a myriad of educational and fun activities. A special assembly marked the event and a video presentation was shown to students. Students also sang songs in the morning assembly. Pupils expressed their views in speeches and agreed to prioritize earth protection.
Our Principal Mr. Pramod Mahajan sensitized the students about the importance of saving environment. Following Mahatma Gandhi’s teaching that the “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed”, he explained the need to Recycle, Reduce & Reuse. He explained to the students that no matter what they like to do best, there’s a way to get involved in Earth Day. They could plant a tree, educate a family member, clean up trash in their neighbourhood, or save power — the possibilities are endless. Children learnt the importance of preserving Planet Earth on this day and they promised to do their bit to protect the environment.
