Muscat: Early Years at Beaconhouse Oman celebrated Global Dignity Week from October 15 to 19, 2017 with much enthusiasm. A number of interesting activities, interactive presentation and exciting competitions were conducted.

Global Dignity Week at Early Years primarily focused on ‘Respect for All’, ‘Save the Trees’ and ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’. Students were trained to use dustbins more effectively to ensure a clean surrounding. Dynamic participation of teachers and students was observed.

Activities being conducted during the Dignity Week are as follows:

Dignity Handprints: Children created colourful handprints with powerful messages of peace, love, respect and compassion, showing good understanding of various aspects of adignity.

‘Save the Trees’: Trees clean the air, soil and water, making the earth a liveable place. They are so integral to humans’ wellbeing that just living close to trees makes us healthier and happier. Our kindergarteners made beautiful green tags for dried up trees with slogans to save the trees and protect them.

Respect for All: Respect yourself, your parents, your teachers, your school and your environment. This significant message of respect was given by the young Beaconites using fall tree leaves stuck on soil and branches prepared by fingerprinting.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: Three great ways to eliminate waste and protect your environment! Waste and how we choose to handle it, affects the world's environment. Various projects were made by young artists of Kindergarten 1 and 2 with the help of the teachers using waste materials emphasising reduce, reuse and recycle. The projects were displayed in a recycle exhibition cum charity sale which were sold to the mothers and the collected amount were given to our school helpers.

Proper Usage of Dustbin: Young kindergarteners were trained to use different types of dustbins effectively through a presentation showing colours for paper waste, food waste and plastic waste. Later, children showed how to throw waste materials according to the provided tags.

Recycle Project Competition/Costume Walk: Students confidently spoke about their well-crafted projects throughout the recycle project competition. Moreover, students of Kindergarten 1 were super enthusiastic as they walked the ramp to display costumes designed using recyclable materials.
