Celebrating Earth Day
The Earth has enough to fulfill everyone's need. But it can never satisfy everyone's greed.
Everything in the world around us is built upon the Earth, grows on the Earth, or depends on the environment of the Earth in some way or the other. As we know this is the only planet where survival is possible so it becomes our duty to save Mother Earth. With the view of educating our little kids about what we have and what we are losing by acting in ways that are not environment friendly and reminding them that WE NEED TO TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT OUR ENVIRONMENT BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE, the School celebrated the Earth Day on 22nd April'19. The toddlers were dressed as Earth and different planets. Children were made aware that every day is an Earth Day and the purpose of celebrating Earth Day is to help keep our grass green and our skies blue with more trees and less pollution.
