As part of the ‘Clean up the World’ campaign, Year 8 students of DGPS, began with a cleanliness walk around the school campus on November 21, 2017.
‘Clean up the World’ campaign, is a global community-based environmental movement, designed to inspire and empower communities around the world to clean up ad conserve their environment.
The campaign is a movement that brings together businesses, community groups, schools, governments and individuals in a range of activities and programmes that positively improve local environments. It is held in conjunction with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and currently, over 70 groups are part of this campaign in the UAE, including our very own DGPS.
Ms Mahua, Ms Laxmi, Ms Naela, Mr Jawed, Mr Hany and Mr Rabie from the senior school were the teachers-in-charge of supervising the students as they went around, cleaning the environment.
The boys and girls of Year 8, put great effort into collecting as much trash as possible, with some of them even competing amongst themselves for collecting the most litter. The students’ enthusiasm made the whole exercise a fun activity.
The outing lasted for nearly an hour or so, after which the students gathered around for a group photo, posing with the litter they picked up along the way.
Overall, it was a great way to start a Tuesday morning for all the Year 8 students and teachers who were part of this amazing campaign.
