Spring Daleans give a call for water conservation to mark World Earth Hour
Make and install sculpture on water conservation
Invoking the best of their artistic capabilities, the staff and students of Spring Dale Senior School gave a call for conserving water on the occasion of World Earth Hour 2017 observation in the school premises. They employed used plastic pipes and old basketballs to create a fine specimen of what is called ‘junk art’ to drive home the point that the Planet Earth would soon be left with little or no water if the precious elixir is allowed to flow gratuitously. It has been installed in the sculpture exhibition area of the school.
Giving details, Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that the sculpture about water wastage shows an open tap and water being wasted from it. “It has been created by the staff and students of the Creative Arts Department of the School from stuff considered junk, which has been put to good use to convey an important message that could benefit the whole humanity if followed diligently,” he said.
He said that the endeavour also aimed at spreading the message of environmental conservation through recycling of waste materials. “We want our students, and through them, the masses, to understand that nothing is garbage, everything is gold—that everything that we deem fit for the dustbin can be recycled and reused,” he said. He added that the entire material used for building the sculpture was available in the school and nothing was procured from the market.
Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, President, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that the school is an advocate of environment-related issues without which humanity would be pushed to the brink of destruction. “We are consistent in our efforts to promote peace and environmental concerns and are training our students as well to love and sustain their planet and its environment through thoughtful acts,” they said.
