The Millennium School, Noida concludes the Global Tiger Day celebrations. To mark the occasion, the school dedicated three days and organised art and craft and various other activities for students aimed at generating awareness about the need to protect tigers.
The Global Tiger Day is celebrated to raise awareness about tiger conservation. The day holds much importance for India as Tiger is our national animal and nearing extinction. The population of tigers has seen an alarming dip from 40,000 tigers in 1947 to just 1706 in 2010. However owing to the increased awareness and efforts of conservationists and government, there has been some improvement from 2006, when the population of tigers stood at just 1411.
In the activities spread over three days, children depicted the magnificence of tigers through art and craft activities including mask making, face painting, t-shirt painting, collage making and many other activities. Posters created by students as a part of poster making activity explored various aspects pertaining to extinction of tigers. Through their powerful visuals, students chose to highlight causes of extinction and measures that can be taken to protect tigers. Activities like creative writing and slogan writing saw students passionately put forward their views concerning the issue.
Speaking on the occasion, Rita Kaul, Principal, The Millennium School, Noida, said, “Tiger is our national animal and is known for its beauty and power. Unfortunately due to our carelessness, tigers are now on the verge of extinction. If we don’t realize the need to protect them right now we might just lose them forever and the future generations will only know about them in books and in pictures. Today’s activity was an attempt to get our children to take charge of the situation and disseminate the message further.”
