Earth Day

SIS joined the global community in commemorating Earth Day on April 22, 2024, with a series of engaging activities curated by the Department of Social Science. These activities aimed to foster environmental awareness and instill a sense of responsibility towards our planet among students across all grade levels.
The Earth Day Celebration at SIS was a vibrant occasion that united students from various sections of the school in a range of activities centered around environmental conservation and sustainability. Through these initiatives, students not only learned about the importance of protecting our planet but also actively participated in endeavors to contribute towards a greener and healthier Earth.
The event commenced in the foundational stage with an Earth Day Pledge, where students committed to adopting sustainable practices and safeguarding the environment. This was followed by a Water Sense Activity, educating students about water conservation and responsible usage. A notable highlight was the Waste-Free Lunch, encouraging students to minimize waste by using reusable containers and avoiding single-use plastics. This initiative not only promoted environmental consciousness but also demonstrated practical ways to reduce waste in daily life.
The Trash to Treasure and Art Corner, along with the Recycle Toys Activity, provided students with creative outlets to repurpose materials and showcase their artistic talents while promoting the concepts of upcycling and waste reduction.
In addition to these activities, students in the preparatory stage from grades III to V participated in a film festival showcasing environmental achievements and raising awareness about protecting Earth’s natural resources. Furthermore, a collaborative effort between the Department of Social Science and the Department of Computer Science organized a virtual field trip for students.
The middle section students organized a descriptive writing activity on the theme “Planet Vs Plastics,” encouraging critical thinking about environmental issues and positive actions to address them. Meanwhile, the secondary section conducted a special assembly emphasizing the urgent need for collective action to address environmental challenges. They also organized peer teaching sessions about the impact of climate change on Earth. Students of grade X undertook the task of creating pledge posters to commemorate the occasion. This initiative aimed to engage students in raising awareness about environmental conservation and fostering a sense of responsibility towards the planet. Students were encouraged to express their ideas creatively through artwork, slogans, and messages on their posters. They explored various themes such as reducing plastic usage, conserving water and energy, promoting biodiversity, and mitigating climate change
Students from Grade III to Grade XII collectively took part in a Recycle Books Activity, promoting environmental sustainability by reducing the demand for new paper production through book exchanges. To ensure the sustainability efforts continue, Green Ambassadors were elected from KG to Grade XII. These ambassadors, selected for their enthusiasm, commitment, and ideas for promoting environmental awareness, will play a crucial role in inspiring their peers and driving positive change within the school community.
Overall, the Earth Day Celebration at Shantiniketan Indian School was a resounding success, leaving a lasting impact on students and empowering them to become stewards of the environment. Through education, awareness, and action, SIS continues to nurture a generation of environmentally conscious individuals committed to creating a better, more sustainable future for all.
