World Environment Day Newsflash!
This week the ELC celebrated World Environment Day which is being held on Sunday 5 June. This day is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.
This experience for our children helped to reinforce our commitment towards the sustainability program that we offer in the ELC. The children, staff and some wonderful parent and grandparent helpers came together on Thursday morning to engage in a variety of experiences to help promote the children’s understanding of World Environment Day.
The activities on offer included:
– endangered animals
– water conservation
The children really enjoyed these activities and it was a wonderful opportunity to join together and embrace an important ongoing global issue that our planet is facing.
We warmly invite everyone to the ELC to come and have a look at our new succulent garden (work in progress) and our beds of daffodils (yet to flower).
