On April 22nd, our school celebrated Earth Day with great enthusiasm, marking the launch of our SSDB (Start Small Dream Big) programme for 2024. The day was filled with various activities designed to educate and engage students on the importance of environmental conservation and sustainability.

We began the celebration by learning about Earth Day and the significance of saving our planet. The students explored different ways to protect the environment, understanding the impact of their actions on the earth’s health. This educational session set the tone for the day’s activities, emphasising the importance of sustainability.

One of the highlights of the celebration was a vibrant dance performance that energised everyone and reflected our commitment to environmental protection. Following the dance, students took the SSDB pledge, affirming their dedication to making a positive impact on the environment.

As part of our hands-on activities, we created a mural of sea creatures that are at risk of extinction due to ocean pollution. This mural served as a powerful visual reminder of the consequences of throwing trash into our oceans and seas. Additionally, students crafted jellyfish and various other sea creatures using recycled materials, demonstrating how we can repurpose waste creatively.

Our Earth Day activities were tailored to different age groups to ensure all students could participate meaningfully. The younger students engaged in sensory play, focusing on saving animals and cleaning up trash, which helped them understand the importance of a clean environment. Nursery level students practiced watering plants using their plastic water bottles, learning about the value of clean water and plant care.

Kindergarten 1 students enjoyed making jellyfish from recycled materials, while Kindergarten 2 students created musical shakers, also from recycled materials. These activities not only highlighted the importance of recycling but also allowed the students to express their creativity.

Our Earth Day celebration, in conjunction with the SSDB programme launch, was a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about sustainability in a fun and engaging way. It reinforced the message that even small actions can make a big difference in protecting our planet. We are excited to continue this journey of sustainability and look forward to more such enriching activities throughout the year.
