Best Out of Waste Competition
"We do not inherit the earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children!"
- Chief Seattle
An initiative to generate the habit of using old things to create beautiful crafts among young children is a concept which has global significance. GISK always believes in sustainable development that is needed to preserve what we have today, if we wish to see a better tomorrow. Young generation of today can play a vital role in preserving and restoring the environment if awareness is created in them. Keeping this in mind, a ‘Best Out of Waste’ Competition was organized for the learners of classes I to VIII. The objective behind this activity was to encourage our young students to use their imaginative skills for creating useful and innovative products out of waste material and to imbibe values like preservation and conservation in the young hearts.
Little hands and creative minds came together with a creative burst of energy during the exhibition. The participants emphasized on their creative skills, neatness, presentation and utility of the product. Participants used reusable and recyclable materials and they created an amazing array of display items. The innovative and creative thoughts of our young students were amazing when they displayed their products in the exhibition.
The competition also focused on bringing an understanding among the children about preserving the environment by reusing and recycling waste material. Fabulous ideas were demonstrated using material like newspaper, old CDs, used plastic bottles, ropes, ice cream sticks, bangles, shoe boxes a tea pot and a cup, slippers from straws, hat, paper vase, festival decorations, wall hangings, greeting cards, toys and paper jewellery etc.
We were glad to see the enthusiastic parents who took out their valuable time and made a special bond with the children helping them display their creativity.
The students learned the importance of preserving the environment by Reuse, Recycle and Reduce the waste. We feel proud to say that young Gajerians are here to bring the positive change in our society and preserve our Mother Earth and its resources very sensibly.
A learning experience for all, the competition promoted creativity and artistic excellence in our stake holders of tomorrow.
