Children’s Day 2013 was celebrated in a special way at Blossom Early Learning Center with a lecture by renowned genius Pritvik Sinhadc and various activities were offered to children and families throughout the day including a puppet show, balloon twisting, shawarma by Desert Palm, crafts, face painting and petting farm. Proceeds from the day went to Make a Wish Foundation UAE.
To start the celebration Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Head of Knowledge Human Development Authority and other school officials led a ribbon cutting ceremony and planted a tree in honor of children around the world. Then Sinhadc stunned the audience of professors, head masters, KHDA officials and students on the impact of radioactive and nuclear waste on marine and land species. During his lecture, Sinhadc stated “research on prehistoric mass extinctions and human-made nuclear disasters have proved that uncontrolled radioactivity and nuclear or radioactive waste can hurt marine and land species in several ways — by killing them outright, or critically altering the genetics of these species thereby creating irreparable bizarre mutations in their offspring or worse, passing radioactive material up the food chain.”
He stressed that “the ones who have started the mess should also finish it. On top of so many environmental problems the last thing this world needs right now is to worry about the safety of nuclear waste disposal” and “the world needs to quickly resolve the nuclear waste issue because it wouldn’t be morally right to leave it for our future generations.” This was a particularly relevant lecture on Children’s Day which was created to preserve the rights of children around the world and allow them to led bright futures.
Blossom Early Learning Center was filled with activities for children and families to enjoy throughout the celebration with themed zones of activities, crafts, food, environment friendly products, silent auction of artwork by children and raffle prizes available to benefit Make a Wish Foundation.
