Dressed in shades of green and blue, the students represented the myriad colours of Earth.

The children were informed about the importance of understanding their role in protecting the environment in ways they can.

They were briefed about the importance of reducing or limiting waste, to reuse things and materials whenever possible, to find ways to re-purpose the use of things and to recycle waste materials.

A presentation prepared by teachers stressed the importance of saving water, planting trees, taking care of animals and keeping the surroundings free of litter.

The programme also featured a documentary released by the UN and quiz competition.

The school’s vice-head girl, Shaymanti Bhowmik, rendered a song based on Do Re Me to highlight the precautions needed during the current pandemic.
