Primary school students shared important facts on water and encouraged everyone to avoid its wastage



Apeejay School International (ASI), South Delhi, held a special assembly for primary school students on the issue of water conservation. The assembly was organised to mark World Water Day held on March 22 every year.

At the assembly, students talked about the significance of water in our lives. They also presented a PowerPoint presentation on the 2023 theme of World Water Day— “Accelerating the change to solve the water and sanitation crisis”.

Neal Verma, a Primary Year Programme (PYP) student, said, “I gave the introduction speech and also spoke about how nearly 2.6 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation.”

Vivaan Verma, another student from the same class, shared, “The assembly was held to promote the conservation of water. It ended with simple ways to reduce the wastage of water.” Students shared their personal experiences and ideas for water conservation.

Both Neal and Vivaan, among many other students, shared interesting facts on water at the assembly. They also highlighted Sustainable Development Goals on “Clean water and Sanitation for All for 2023”.

The students promised to be mindful of their water usage and to encourage others to do the same.

The World Water Day assembly was a great success in educating young minds about the importance of water conservation and inspiring them to act. The session helped students to understand that water is crucial and everyone should work together to conserve it and protect our planet.

 “The assembly was very good, and everyone learnt a lot about water,” Neal added.

“According to the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), by 2040, roughly one in four children worldwide will be living in areas of extremely high water stress. This can be changed if we can act now! Let’s pay heed to the advice by these young ones and change our habits today to avoid the disaster tomorrow.”
