Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22 globally to demonstrate the support for environmental protection. Although Earth Day is on April 22, environmental awareness lasts all year.

Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in cities. As the urban population grows and the effects of climate change worsen. It’s time for us to invest in efficiency and renewable energy. Green Cities campaign as the theme of 2014 Earth Day, kicked off in many schools worldwide. Students in Rafflesia has held the Earth Day event to inspire to create a better, healthier and cleaner learning environment in school. Hence, this has become the motto and focus for our first year Earth Day celebration. With that motto, our students were introduced and encouraged the practice of the 3Rs, to converse energy, water and reduce waste not only in school but also where ever they are.

The Earth Day celebration, under the guidance of Teacher John Chan, has integrated 3 activities into part of the event, the 3 activities are Literacy & Communication In Action, the Digital Production & Performing Arts, and the Artistic Creativity into action. All students sprung into action competing among themselves according to their four Sports Houses.

The Day started with four Houses competing in the colouring contest, followed by Numeracy and Literacy Marathon. The highlight of the Day was to challenge the students’ creativity, endurance and teamwork under the guidance of respective House Masters, to create the tallest “Tower of Glory” from limited recycled resources provided. After a tough “fight” among the houses, a relax, merry and harmonious music to wrap-up the event for the day.
