Earth Day is designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment and is held on April 22 every year. earth-day_daystar-sOn this day the electricity and water at Daystar Academy will be turned off from 9 O’clock in the morning till noon for students to understand how essential these resources are in their daily lives. Additionally, the school assembly this month is a presentation on how environmental concerns are all interrelated. This presentation shows how the students can participate at school and home to promote a healthy and sustainable environment. 

Daystar Academy students will also host their annual Earth Day FUNraiser. The event is held in April every year to raise student awareness about the environment both locally and globally. The students will start their day on campus in a tree planting ceremony and then move into the school garden where they will sow the seeds for this season’s harvest. All the vegetables grown will be used in the school lunch program. 

The afternoon is reserved for their FUNraiser to generate money for an environmental cause chosen by the students and teachers every year.

This year they will donate all the proceeds to the drought afflicted residents in Yunnan Province through the Red Cross.
