Earth Day 2023
On Friday, 21.04.2023r. WMS students cleaned up our school garden, planted flowers, herbs and a tree to commemorate this day. On this day, a lesson related to environmental protection was held for students in grades 0-4. These classes made us realize how much our planet is in danger of extinction.
On April 22, we celebrate Earth Day. For the first time Earth Day was celebrated in the United States in 1970. In this way, people who were not indifferent to the fate of our planet wanted to protest against the further destruction of the face of Mother Earth. Let us also join the friends of our globe and together with them fight for our home.
We would like to encourage you to celebrate this holiday in a completely different way. To get out of the house and go to nature, to the forest, meadow, park, or at least to look for nature around you. Take time to be with nature, to reflect on how important it is to us, but also how fascinating, beautiful and interesting it is.
With this in mind, it’s a good idea to turn off phones, tablets or newspapers, and even stop talking for a while. It’s worth sitting or lying down in a secluded spot, touching the grass, listening and gazing. Observe ants, study the texture of leaves, do what we don’t usually do even during a Sunday walk in the park.
If you don’t have much time, and there are no major green spaces nearby, get out of the house and look for even the tiniest manifestations of Nature’s power in your immediate surroundings. Pay attention to the trees you pass every day, observe what’s growing in the yard next to the grass, track Nature in unusual places (look for trees on apartment roofs, plants growing out of walls, in cracks in sidewalks).
And repeat it as often as possible, because Earth Day is every day!
