Coming together is beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success – Henry Ford
When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. Keeping this in mind to enhance the critical thinking and awareness of students the Primary & Pre-primary dept of Chennai Public School, Thirumazhisai collaborated with Sunrise English Private School, Abu Dhabi, UAE & Shinning Star International School, Abu Dhabi, UAE respectively to address on the current issue the whole world is facing; Global Warming “Goal no: 9 & Goal no: 14” to find innovative solutions to climate change.
Our students of class IV & V explained about the SDG – 9; greenhouse gases and global warming, its causes & effects. They also came up with innovative solutions to control the climatic changes & control CO2 emission like recycling ideas, vertical gardening, smart cities, usage of electric vehicles, using renewable resources etc. Followed by this they had an interactive session with exchange of quiz among both.
It was a visual treat when the tiny tots of age group 3 to 5 performed brilliantly on virtual platform, depicting the theme SDG-14 -“Life below water”. The live presentation done by the students were given special appreciation where the students exposed their utmost talent and strongly emphasizing on SDG-14 to conserve the ocean life. The magnificent speech and alluring beauty of the little once made everyone delightful.
The advantages of the collaborative projects are they can express more creativity & innovation. This was truly a new and enriching experience for the students & developed an awareness to protect the environment. Kudos to the students of both the schools.
