Two schools in Vadodara are celebrating the World Environment Day in unique way, by creating awareness among students through interesting activities. These schools are also promoting self-discipline in regards to use and protection of natural elements on planet Earth.
Prince Ashokraje Gaekwad School and Devyniraje Gaekwad School have taken the initiative to conserve environment and believe in leading by example. For this purpose first the teachers and students make a pledge to save water, protect animals, and nurture the elements that come from the Earth. Everyone understands the need to conserve biosphere by using recycled products and reduce pollution.
The students and teachers also plant saplings and demonstrate the Red Tape Movement with an aim to signify the protection of trees, prevention of deforestation. They also highlight the negative impacts of deforestation on nature ultimately to safeguard the interests of the future generations.
“The aim is to inculcate the message of environment protection in students from the start. Along with students the teachers dressed up as animals and birds and use props to convey the message effectively. All took the pledge of save water, no plastic use, use dustbins to dispose of waste, switch off lights when not in use, use public transport to save fuel and others. We also adopt trees inside our premises starting the red tape movement to save them by not using any type of harmful pesticides,” said, Dr Tushar Bhonsle, Administrator and Principal.
World Environment Day is celebrated every year on June 5 to increase awareness, and action towards the protection of environment. Working in the same concept the students and teachers convey the importance and conservation of nature by explaining the significance of Recycle, Reuse and Reduce.
