22nd Apr was the annual World Earth Day with this year’s theme of Protect Our Species. To develop students’ awareness of environmental protection, Boston International School has organized various kinds of activities during these days.
Korean Assembly – Earth Day Performance
On the morning of 17th Apr, PYP Korean students gathered in our auditorium and gave splendid performance in both English and Korean. The performance included singing, reading and comedies, all relating to the theme of protecting an endangered species like polar bears, dodo birds, giant pandas and dolphins.
Students were inspired by the assembly:
I told myself that If I was a polar bear born long ago where there is no problem with the environment, then I’ll have no worry… So from now on, I’ll save energy and try to use more renewable energy.
I realized that when I am a mom someday, my children might not be able to see the same animals that I grew up seeing. We must try to protect these animals to the best of our ability.
PYP Field Trip
P2 students reviewed their trip the day after and gave their thought:
I liked the trip very much. I found many ants and other animals. I liked the park very much because it’s protecting these animals and plants.
I enjoyed the trip very much! We were cleaning the park so that animals can live better. It was my first time to see so many plants and flowers! I also enjoyed having a good time with my friends and I will go to the park again with my family.
Yesterday we found lots of cool things, lots of flowers, lots of bugs and insects. We also found a squirrel! There are so many species on the earth and I think we have to protect them.
Yesterday we picked rubbished people threw. We looked for every kind of plants. We even saw cats! To protect the environment, we need to help the plants to grow.
I enjoyed it and I saw many beautiful flowers. I really liked picking up rubbishes, so I can help protect these flowers.
Art Classes and Art Works
In our Art classes, students are always encouraged to integrate their creativities with recycled materials. Let’s see what they have came up with these waste paper and plastics!
