Green Wave is a day, where people around the world, plant trees in an effort to save earth through conservation of our trees. As part of Green Wave 2012, Eden School has decided to plant the Melastoma Malabathricum, to show our support in promoting conservation and to create awareness for our students to learn the importance of conservation.
In preparation for the Green Wave event, students from Finn class painted and collected dried leaves from the school compound to decorate the banner for the Green Wave 2012 event.
On 22 May 2012, the event started with students from both Finn and Wright class writing conservation messages on dried leaves. These messages were then pasted onto the Green Wave banner. Joel Kee from Finn Class and Abundance Lim from Wright class, then prepared the Melastoma Malabathricum plant and placed it into the pot. Our Vice Principal, Mrs Patricia Cheng and both our track heads, Ms Melaine Koh and Mr Daniel Liu, then covered the plant with soil in the pot. Lastly, our Principal, Ms Tan Wee Lim, watered the plant to formally officiate the Green Wave event in Eden School.
This was a good opportunity for the students to learn about the meaning of conservation and what does "green" mean. We are very happy to be a part of the event with everyone around the globe! Happy Green Wave Day
