Earth Day Event
The Modern School, ECNCR celebrated Earth Day on April 21, 2017 to sensitize the students to take care of our planet, Earth. The occasion was graced by the presence of Dr. Kusum Lata, Agricultural Development Officer along with Mr. Gaurav Ahuja and Ms. Khusbhoo Rastogi, co-founders of ‘#IamtheSolution’. The guests were welcomed by the students and escorted to the ground where the students in their respective groups planted saplings and took a pledge to take care of their plants. Students of Nursery and KG sang songs on the theme of preserving Mother Earth and even spoke on the need to preserve it because otherwise they will not have clean water to drink or good air to breathe. The event was followed by a special assembly. A video about the environmental issues like deforestation, water pollution, oil-spill in the oceans etc. and their repercussions in the future was shown. The Chief Guest during her address urged students to plant a tree each year on their birthdays and be part of the contribution towards conservation of our planet and its resources. The Principal, Ms. Abha Sadana shared the importance of the day and its history. Students were shown a ‘Green Gaddi’, an Innova car parked in the school grounds where plants rich in oxygen release and which can withstand extreme temperature, were planted on its roof. Students were inspired to plant trees and to take care of nature by taking initiatives and spreading awareness amongst others.
