Shemrock School becomes part of Earth Day celebrations
Shemrock Senior Secondary School Mohali celebrated the Earth Day spreading urgency in saving the planet.
School students took out a rally holding placards that bore message of ways to save the earth. Students stood at light junction of phase 7 for more than an hour educating people to keep their vehicles off while waiting at traffic lights. Principal Air Cmdr SK Sharma said, “This exercise proved to be a very powerful medium in educating common man to pool vehicles and reduce carbon emissions. Children today are very vigilant and can work wonders when given an opportunity, holding rally was an opportunity school gave them to spread the message of clean and green environment.”
The placards bore message of saving earth from human activities, pollution and disposal of waste. People were encouraged to reflect on future situation wherein there would be lesser water and lesser green cover, if human went on using natural resources at such maddening speed.
They emphasized that mother earth demanded care from its children. Considering trees as friends not only gave an emotional support but also helps in conserving the green friends.
Students called upon people to plant more trees and ensure that their children and grand children do not curse them for exhausting all natural resources and leaving them to fend for themselves.
City people were asked to make Chandigarh greener and stop littering around. Use of dustbin in the parks was emphasized. They said that every day was an earth day.
“Our earth needs care daily and not for just eon day a year. Celebrating today is like a wake up call for us,” they said.
