Olive International School conducts World Environment Day

The Peninsula

To participate and celebrate the World Environment Day, Olive International School, Nuaija campus organised a slogan making  competition for the students of Grade 4, 5 and 6 on “Connecting People to Nature’, which was the theme for World Environment Day 2017” on June 5.  

The theme set for the competition was in compliance with the primary motive, “to appreciate its beauty and its importance, and to take forward the call to protect the Earth that we share”. 

Each child’s slogan and poster had one important underlying message, “To Save the Environment”. What was strikingly impressive was that they made beautiful art, in their attempt to create innovative slogans and captions for their art. Some of the slogans that particularly caught our awe and attention were “Environment is green but we need to make it clean!”, “A Beautiful World starts with you” and “Save the nature to save the future”.

To commemorate the Special day, Mandela House presented a special assembly depicting the importance of the day. The children sent a strong message on saving the environment through a mime on Pollution. 

In conclusion, OIS Principal Jacob K M, stressed that the habit of cleanliness and hygiene needs to be cultivated in children from a very young age, to achieve the targeted clean environment goals.
