Our story

We planted a tree called Ixora coccinea which can hrives in temperatures above 75°. After we planted the tree, Everyone repeated the Oath to protect Mother Earth after Master Arbind Sanjay of Emirates International School, Jumeirah. The Oath: "I pledge allegiance to the Earth and all its sacred parts, its water, land and living things and all its human hearts. By fostering a deep sense of connection to others and to the earth in all its dimensions, holistic education encourages a sense of responsibility to self to others and to the planet”.
