World Environment Day is observed every year on June 5th in order to raise global awareness about protecting Planet Earth. The theme for 2016 is ‘Go Wild for Life’.
In our Amrita Vidyalayam, we started the day with a special morning assembly which included a special speech on the importance of Environment Day, followed by oath taking and a sweet poetry recital, which made us all think about what is happening to our beautiful Planet Earth. Our students took part in planting vegetables and saplings of various trees on our campus. The main attraction of the programme was the ‘Harithamritham’ rally in which students from classes V through XII participated holding banners and posters.
On this day, several programmes and competitions such as drawing competition for primary classes and slogan writing, poster making and essay writing for higher classes were also conducted.
