At Start-Rite Schools, we are committed to creating an enriching learning environment that goes beyond traditional learning, fostering a holistic understanding of the world. This commitment was on full display during our United Nations Day celebration, held in commemoration of this year’s theme: “Equality, Freedom, and Justice for All.” The event was a vibrant tapestry of culture, diversity, and global awareness, attended by an esteemed audience, including the Media Specialist from the United Nations Information Centre, a Representative from the Polish Embassy, a delegate from the World Meteorological Organization, and young delegates from Junior Secondary School, Life Camp, and Garki.
One of the highlights of our United Nations Day celebration was the colorful and enlightening showcase of cultures and languages from various UN member countries. Our students embarked on a journey around the world, where they had the chance to explore, appreciate, and understand the richness of global diversity. This immersive experience provided valuable insight into different traditions, customs, and languages, helping our students become global citizens with a deep appreciation for cultural inclusivity.
Our celebration was not just about showcasing cultures; it was also a platform for our students to address vital global issues. Through thought-provoking activities, they delved into subjects that are at the heart of the United Nations’ mission. The day featured:
Poetry: Students conveyed powerful messages through poems, addressing topics like peace, unity, and the importance of working together as a global community.
Drama on Gender Equality: Through a captivating drama performance, our students highlighted the significance of gender equality, sparking crucial conversations about equal opportunities for all.
Panel Discussion on Climate Change: Climate change is a global concern, and delegates from Garki and Life Camp Secondary Schools, UNIC, and WMO were engaged in a thoughtful panel discussion about the environment. They discussed the importance of climate action, emphasizing the need for sustainable practices to protect our planet.
Combating Misinformation: In today’s information age, combating misinformation is critical. Our students discussed the dangers of misinformation, emphasizing the role of education in nurturing critical thinking and media literacy.
At Start-Rite Schools, we take pride in nurturing the minds of our students and encouraging them to become active global citizens. Our United Nations Day celebration was a testament to our commitment to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and knowledgeable community. We are humbled by the presence of distinguished guests who joined us in celebrating the values of “Equality, Freedom, and Justice for All.” We look forward to many more such enriching events that empower our students to be the change-makers and leaders of tomorrow.
