News & Events / World Environment Day 2023 @ Whitefield


Art & Performing Arts

The Brigade School, Whitefield celebrated World Environment Day with a special assembly on 9th June 2023 in the MLR auditorium centred around the theme #BeatPlasticPollution. The objective behind celebrating this day was to make the children aware of keeping the environment clean and safe from plastic pollution.
The celebration had many activities to commemorate this special day and spread the message of saving the environment. The programme commenced with a song sung by the students of Standards 2-4 on the preservation of our resources. This was followed by a beautifully choreographed dance by students of Standard 5. The dance drew attention to the detrimental effects of plastic pollution on aquatic life and the imminent need to address this form of pollution. Our principal Ms Suresh addressed the gathering and praised the students for their efforts, encouraging them to be sensitive towards the environment and to sustain this enthusiasm for saving the planet and keeping it clean, day in and day out. The assembly concluded with the National Anthem.
As a part of the World Environment Day celebration, students participated in numerous activities to help everyone understand the ethos behind this special day. Some of them are listed below:

  • Know your Trash: Students of standards 1, 2 and 3 collected the plastic wrappers of the packaged food they brought to school over a period of 5 days. They were surprised to see that there was this much plastic generated in just a couple of days. Teachers sensitised them about mindful shopping and the importance of recycling.

  • Paper Bag-making Activity: Students of standard 4 made bags out of newspaper and used paper. There was some excellent creative work on display. ‘Carry your bag’ for shopping was the message children gave through this activity.

  • Creative Writing: Students of standards 5 and 6 wrote poems, stories, and rap on the theme #BeatPlasticPollution. It was heart-warming to see such thoughtful writing from our students. Their works were put up on boards to be viewed and appreciated by others.

  • Nature Art Collage: Students of standard 7 used natural materials like leaves, flowers, soil, and sand to create beautiful art pieces. Children understood that we don’t need glitter and glue to make something beautiful.

  • Transformers: Students of standard 8 completely transformed waste into beautiful pieces of useful art. Excellent models of cloth mops, drip irrigation, pen holders, planters and many more were made by the talented children.
