As a part of the National Tree Day celebration, an early event related to it is observed by different students and teachers around the globe called "Schools Tree Day". Schools Tree Day is an event held every July 27, two days before the National Tree Day. Every year, students together with their teachers learn how to plant and care for the seedlings they have planted. According to NSW Public Schools, "Each year, school students participate in a special National Tree Day event designed for children--Schools Tree Day!" It's a wonderful opportunity for children to make a tree-mendous contribution to our natural environment and have lots of fun at the same time. Getting involved in Schools Tree Day is a great thing to do. You can see your teachers get their hands dirty, make your school look beautiful, have fun with your friends and help the environment all at once."
So how can you or your child participate in the Schools Tree Day? Here are some of the ways:
- Get those gloves and those trowel, plant a seedling on your school's garden together with your classmates and friends.
- Find an extra time to go to the school's library and grab some book out of those shelves that talks about plants and trees, how to take care of them and their importance to our ecosystem.
- Gather your classmates and try playing a tree trivia contest or enjoy the whole day by exchanging facts and information about trees.
- Join in activities and contests that involve arts and creativity with the subject theme focusing on the celebration of the National Tree Day.
- Start adapting to a greener lifestyle. Make a wise choice and begin supporting recycled products and organic materials for your home or office, specialty products that contributes to the sustainability and conservation of our natural resources.
There are so many things you can do to help our Mother Earth from further damage and help preserving its beauty and natural resources for the future generations to come.
