Earth Hour @ Kids Love Learning

Red Group Children Switching Lights & Fans OffBlue Group Children Working Without Complaints for 30 MinutesAs part of our Earth Day themed learning, we had our little Earth Hour this morning. Children of the Red Group went around the classrooms to turn off lights and fans. Everyone at each level worked happily without fans for a good 30 minutes (we didn’t go all the way to keep power off for 1.5 hours as we didn’t want to make the children too uncomfortable) and they all learned about how saving energy a little each day now will make a big difference in the near future.

Well done kids!

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Ask not what the world can do for you, but what you can do for your world and the future of our children!

Earth hour is a global reminder to us that we only have one planet earth. People across the world will be joining the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) on Saturday, 31 March 2012 to switch off their lights for one hour from 8.30pm, as a sign to show change and to protect the natural world. For more information on the WWF Earth Hour, please visit http://www.worldwildlife.org/sites/earthhour/index.html

As part of the children’s learning experience, Kids Love Learning will join kids around the world taking small steps to hep save plant earth. We will participate in this movement by switching off lights and fans in the school for 30 minutes, on Friday, 30 March 2012.

This also marks the beginning of the school’s 6-month project “Everyday Is Earth Day”. The project will focus on the topic Recycling – where our children are introduced to the concept and taught strategies to creatively reduce and reuse waste!  

Every few weeks, we will start a new sub-topic using a different recyclable material. A note describing the materials needed and proposed activities will be sent to you accordingly. We welcome your creative suggestions and hope to get your family’s participation in the process.

Each letter will also offer a Green Tip to help you reinforce some of the things your child learnt in school. We hope you will support your child by joining us in this project. Together we can create fun and educational activities that you may never have imagined!

Thanking you in advance for your effort.

Happy Recycling!

Kids Love Learning
