27 April, 2018 · Earth Day Celebrated @ Silver Oaks
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 especially come together to share an 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 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. World Creativity and Innovation day is observed on April 21 across the world and the goal is to build capacity for everyone to be open to new ideas and to make new decisions that make the world a better place and make their place in the world better too, in ways that do not cause harm. The day has been celebrated in over 46 countries since 2002. The learners at Silver Oaks indulged in different activities to celebrate Creativity, Innovation and Earth Days. Our objective was to highlight the proactive measures needed or could be taken to save the earth and to make it a better place to live. The primary and middle school learners participated in English Creative Writing contest. Oakians were provided with the topics like “I can help earth by…..”, “If I am provided with a chance to decorate my class I will…..”, “If we did not cut trees, earth would be more…..”, “If I were planet earth, I would be crying because…..”, “Once I used my creative and innovative ideas and made……”, “When I will grow up I will make earth a better place to live by……”, “Eliminating plastic from earth is important because…..”, “I will use my creative and innovative ideas to devise a robot that will help me in…..”. Pupils of Pre-school enjoyed the yellow color day with Show & Tell activities.
