UN DAY CELEBRATIONS 2018-19

United Nations Day 2018-19 was observed on 24th October, 2018 in the School Assembly Ground.

The  programme was hosted by the students of Std. IX. The thrust of the commemoration was to introduce the Agencies of the United Nations (U.N) and define their functions to the students of Std VI - X.

The representatives of Std. IX combined efforts to project the functions and portfolios of various organisations namely ECOSOC, UNEP, UNICEF and WHO. The student animators also shed light on the agenda of the U.N. General Assembly and their protocol.

The main focus was on the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) that addresses environmental issues. The members of the organisation took up the global issue of rising water disasters in the World. The Tsunami that wreaked havoc on the Indonesian Islands during early October was the moot point of discussion.

The participants exhibited their creativity  by composing a poem on 'Tides and Tectonic Plates' and performed a dance to reiterate the manifold devastation of the human inhabitation after such water calamities.

An animated street play, ' Man Vs Nature' was an intriguing Allegory where the flora and fauna 'filed a case' against man who continually encroaches the forest cover causing massive environmental degradation.

The program culminated with a melodious song on 'The Importance Of Water'.

The Commemoration was an eye opener to the significant role played by the U.N. Agencies in ensuring global development and security. It was definitely a motivation to students as it suggested ways and means to protect the environment and deliberate upon the role of these agencies in alleviating World problems.
