Animals Our Best Friend
-Mrs Colleen Azavedo
Our great national leader Mahatma Gandhi rightly said “The greatness of a nation and its progress can be judged by the way animals are treated.”
The students of the Primary Section celebrated Animal Day on 30th July 2018. Every class teacher began the day with a discussion, making students aware of their importance in our lives. Animals should be treated with love, care and compassion. This will help to prevent the endangered species of animals and a few that are on the verge of extinction. The teachers also shared facts about the atrocities done to animals. To support the discussion and for better comprehension, the teacher used videos, PPT, poems song etc.
There was a display of pictures and charts all around the class as well as corridors which enhanced learning. The worksheets given to the children were very informative and easily completed with background of the happenings of the entire day. The students also prepared beautiful hand made puppets and paper plate mask of their pet animals which they took back home.
“Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.” -Schopenhouer
