“Understand the worth of Earth, treat it with care, and give it the love it deserves.”
Every year on 22 April, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. It is widely recognized as the largest secular observance in the world as a day of action to change human behaviour and create global, national, and local policy changes. As a step towards inspiring, educating, and motivating children to act, the schools under the aegis of Salwan Education Trust celebrated Earth Day on 22 April 2023. The day commenced with a special assembly, where all the students, teachers, and support staff took a pledge to save Mother Earth by doing simple, doable actions followed by skits, dance performances, and tree plantation activities. Later in the day, an array of creative activities was organised to sensitise the children about the conservation of natural resources and motivate them to do their bit towards making their planet even more beautiful.
