“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
On the occasion of Earth Day, the children of Class IV organized a special assembly on Thursday, 20th April 2023 to highlight the importance of preserving our planet.
Due to the rising number of COVID cases in the capital, the school authorities took necessary precautions to ensure the safety of the students and staff. The performance of the children was recorded and later shown to all the students, teachers, and parents. This ensured that the message of Earth Day was spread while also adhering to the safety guidelines set by the authorities.
The highlight of the assembly was the skit that showcased a comparison of the happy earth of 50 years ago and the polluted earth of today. The skit started with a group of children playing in a clean and green environment, breathing in the fresh air, and enjoying nature’s bounty. But as the skit progressed, the scene changed, and the audience saw how humans have been exploiting nature and the negative consequences that have followed. The students portrayed the harmful effects of air pollution, water pollution, and deforestation on human health and well-being.
Next, the musical choir sang a soulful melody ‘Earth, we’re in it together’ that praised the beauty of nature and emphasized the need to take care of our planet.
The students also presented a lively dance on the popular track ‘Bhumi Mangalam’ which portrayed the essence of mother earth and our relationship with her. The synchronized moves of the dancers and the catchy beats of the song left the audience tapping their feet and humming along.
The skit ended with a powerful message that it’s high time we take responsibility for our actions and work towards protecting our planet. The audience was left with a thought-provoking question – What kind of earth do we want to leave for future generations?
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.” The Earth Day assembly by Class 4 students was a perfect reminder of these wise words, urging us all to be responsible citizens and preserve our planet for generations to come.
