ACADEMIC SESSION 2016-17
International Tigers’ Day
Students of Class IV E presented a Class Assembly on 28th July 2016 on ‘International Tigers’ Day’.
The assembly started with the ‘Morning Prayer’, followed by daily news and carried forward by a beautiful thought for the day, “When a man kills a tiger, he calls it a ‘sport’; when a tiger kills a man, its called as ‘ferocity’.”
Students made the audience aware that the ‘International Tigers’ Day is held annually on 29th July to give worldwide attention to the preservation of tigers. It was founded at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in 2010. This was done because at that moment wild tigers were too close to extinction. The goal of Tigers’ Day is to promote the protection and expansion of the wild tiger habitats and to gain support through awareness for tiger conservation.
A poem was creatively recited to make everyone aware about the importance of tigers. Students enthusiastically came forward to share the information about the day. They informed the audience that tigers have been officially classified as endangered species. Poaching, deforestation and climate change are the main reasons for the great reduction in numbers of tigers. They also shared many interesting facts about tigers.
Children love to express their joy either by singing or by dancing. A dance number was also lined up. It was quite an energetic and colourful performance. All the students of class IV E participated in the assembly.
The students were able to deliver the desired message successfully and every one present there became aware about the day. The assembly ended with a question to ponder upon… “What can I do to conserve Tigers?”
