21 April, 2017 · Earth Day
Earth Day was created, on April 22, 1970, to reflect on our planet, our environment and what we can do to help keep them healthy. From the beginning, children and schools were approached to support the formation and continuation of this special day. And this makes sense! Children have the most important stake in keeping our planet healthy. They'll still be the caretakers long after their parents and grandparents have passed away. They can start with things like using recycled items; help parents sort the recycling; encourage them to recycle (donate some allowance to purchase a small home recycle bin -- that will get their attention!). Earth day is the nominated day on which people specially come together to share appreciation for our planet and environment, it is a time to consider pollution, conservation and preservation and take actions to improve. Many cities have community service initiatives in place for this day, bringing people out in huge droves to plant trees, cultivate landscapes and clean up wildlife areas riddled with litter and pollution. Turning off lights and appliances in empty rooms, turning off running water, recycling and composting, and ensuring all your trash ends up in a trash bin are different ways to save our planet. It serves a reminder that all 365 days should be treated as Earth Day. Within this context, Oakians were provided reference awareness content to write and deliver speeches - Grade 1 & 2 students spoke on “Save our Earth”; Grades 3 & 4 spoke on “Reduce, Re-use & Recycle” and Grades 5-8 pupils covered “Reducing Pollution” and “How to save Earth from Global Warming”. Pupils of Pre- School enjoyed Red Color Day and performed different show & tell activities on recycling.
