To mark the occasion of Earth Day, a special assembly was conducted by the students of Class IX on 22nd April 2019.
The students were informed about the ‘International Mother Earth Day’, which was officially proclaimed by United Nations to acknowledge that the Earth and its ecosystems is our common home that provides us with life and sustenance. This day is observed to emphasise that it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.
Students were made aware of some startling facts about recycling, such as: Recycling one glass bottle or jar saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours and recycling one ton of plastic saves the equivalent of 1,000–2,000 gallons of gasoline.
The aim was to encourage them to take small steps towards devising a better world, because the very existence of life on this planet depends on the efforts made by us to protect it.
A special assembly to mark World Heritage Day was conducted on 18th April 2018. Students from Classes VI-IX presented a talk, which was aimed at creating awareness about the meaning of Heritage and its tangible and intangible forms. The students learned that intangible heritage includes attributes of a society like Yoga, the Sanskrit language and performing arts which have been passed down several generations. The members of the Heritage Club spoke about preservation of heritage for the benefit of future generations.
Ramneek Dogra of Class VII B played Teen Taal on the Tabla, as an example of the rich intangible legacy of Amir Khusrau, renowned Sufi musician, poet and scholar.
