The theme for this year’s Earth Day and Kindness Movement Week is “Be Kind to the Earth”. Metta School had organized a series of activities to educate and engage our students as compassionate and responsible members of the community. A speaker from World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) was invited to the school to share about Wildlife and Marine Conservation. The talk highlighted the present wildlife situation and how we can do our part to protect these animals, e.g. saying no to eating shark fins. Students were also drawn to the various images and videos of the wildlife presented by the speaker.
Teachers also conducted talks during both morning and afternoon assemblies. Students had the opportunity to win small prizes and demonstrate their knowledge on how to be kind to the Earth. Back in the classrooms, students were given time to reflect and share how they can be kind to others and/or the environment.
In support of environmental sustainability, the school has also provided students and teachers in the morning session with a set of reusable cutlery set. Thus, instead of using disposable plastic cutleries, students will be using and washing their own set of cutleries during recess and lunch. This initiative helps to reduce plastic waste while instilling students with a sense of responsibility and awareness towards protecting the environment. Credits to all teachers and students for doing their part and be kind to our Earth!
