ASSEMBLY - THINK GREEN ; EARTH DAY
(APRIL 22, 2022)
‘The Earth does not belong to man. Man belongs to Earth.’
It is rightly said that understand the worth of Earth, treat it with care and give love it deserves. “Despite that amazing success and decades of environmental progress, we find ourselves facing an even more direct, almost existential, set of global environmental challenges, from loss of biodiversity to climate change to plastic pollution, that call for action at all levels of government,” said Denis Hayes, the organizer of the first Earth Day in 1970 and Earth Day Network’s Board Chair Emeritus.
To sensitize the students about our environment, on this special day, the students of class VIII-A organised an assembly on the topic ‘THINK GREEN’ to spread awareness about conserving earth. The assembly commenced with a morning prayer followed by the inspiring thoughts and the news updates by the Goenkan reporters. There was a presentation to implement the rule of 3 R’s, that is Reuse, Recycle and Reduce. The students presented a skit about the effects of global warming and how we as responsible citizens can try to reverse the effect of it. There was a musical presentation which was a collaboration of music and dance on the theme of the assembly.
The Head mistress Ms. Shalini Tandon enlightened the students with her words and inspired them to be sensitive towards the mother earth and should take initiative to conserve it. The assembly concluded with the national anthem.
