Students at Kalar International School Celebrate International Ozone Day
Students in grades 3-5 at Kalar International School, a SABIS® PPP school, celebrated International Ozone Day on September 16, 2015. The SABIS Student Life Organization®’s (SLO®) Social Responsibility Department organized the event, which was held in the cafeteria after lunch.
Hosting the event was a Grade 4 prefect, who read the definition and importance of International Ozone Day to the grade 3-5 students. Then the prefect informed the students about the ozone layer, including how it protects people from radiation. After that, two of the school’s English teachers gave a speech about the ozone layer, and the hole in the atmospheric layer that is becoming wider. The teachers told the students that they can protect the ozone layer by recycling, planting, and not using electronics that will have a negative effect on the ozone layer. Once the teachers finished their speeches, the students watched educational videos about the ozone layer.
Students celebrated International Ozone Day to have a general idea of the ozone layer and how it’s protecting life on Earth from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. Holding this event has helped motivate students to reduce and recycle waste materials. After completing this activity, students are also interested in taking part in more environmental events.
