Earth Day Celebration

Earth Day was a big celebration at Rosemont School!  We aligned our Earth Day messages with our Poetry month to create a 'Poetree' where all students showcased their earth poems. 

We held an outdoor assembly where we learned about the history and importance of Earth Day, sang songs and students shared their writing. 

Following the assembly, all students helped the earth by picking up litter from our school grounds and neighbouring community. 

Go green Rosemont!
