Gurgaon children know a lot about playing video games and action films, and a lot less about environment or trees. It would be unfair to compare their childhood with us, but it is true that we know a lot of trees and flowers by playing with mud and flowers in the imperfect gardens during our childhood. In a bid to make their children knowledgeable, the Ryan International School in Gurgaon celebrated the World Forest Day on 21 March.
It is a day celebrated worldwide since
1971, but is more relevant for the current times. Ryan School not
only hosted a talk-show, whereby students educated other students
about forest, tress and saplings but there were some poems as well
presented very well for the enjoyment of the students.
Through these kind of engagements, the
schools provide ample amount of education to the kids in an
environment, which is both friendly and celebratory. The Principal of
the school, Piya Sharma also pitched in and talked to the students
about the importance of forest in our lives. It was a very jovial,
yet informative day.
Each year, as per Wikipedia around 13
million trees hectares of forest are lost due to a number of reasons.
We can do things right, if we treat them a little better with a
little care. To teach our next generation is also an important part
and the school must take up this responsibility.
