SEED MONEY SPENDING REPORT

ABOUT OUR MASCOT

Our mascot is a Sunflower. We chose Sunflower as our mascotbecause of many reasons. Firstly, we would like to say something about sunflowers. Sunflowers are known scientifically as Helianthus annuus. There is a reason why they are also called the sun-loving flowers. Sunflower is a classic example of the involuntary response of plant to the sun. It turns its head directly to face the sun and reorients overnight to wait for the rising of the sunrise.

The reason why we chose sunflower as our mascot because sunflower is a plant which has attractive features andowns the colour of the Sun. Besides that, plants kave great “aesthetic value which means they add to the beauty of the places that we live.

 

Plants also undergo photosynthesis to release oxygen for all living things to stay alive. Furthermore, plants help us to balance the ecosystem by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. Lastly, Sunflower is very useful. It can be made as cooking oil, bio-fuel and snack food.

~Preparing the “Recycle” Banner ~

Date : 9 July 2010

Venue : SMK Alam Megah’s Graphic Lab

Activity : Students & Teachers designed a banner using the back part of an old
and unused banner. The new designed banner is placed at the front gate of the school.

Great Great School!

Acid Rain : Ouch !

Acid rain? What is that?

Acid rain is a rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, i.e. elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). It can have harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals, and infrastructure through the process of wet deposition. Acid rain is caused by emissions of compounds of ammonium, carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur which react with the water molecules in the atmosphere to produce acids. Acid rain is a product of air pollution.

What is the cause of acid rain?

Acid rain is caused by a chemical reaction that begins when compounds like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released into the air. These substances can rise very high into the atmosphere, where they mix and react with water, oxygen, and other chemicals to form more acidic pollutants, known as acid rain. Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides dissolve very easily in water and can be carried very far by the wind. As a result, the two compounds can travel long distances where they become part of the rain, sleet, snow, and fog that we experience on certain days.

Human activities are the main cause of acid rain. Over the past few decades, humans have released so many different chemicals into the air that they have changed the mix of gases in the atmosphere. Power plants release the majority of sulfur dioxide and much of the nitrogen oxides when they burn fossil fuels, such as coal, to produce electricity. In addition, the exhaust from cars, trucks, and buses releases nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide into the air. These pollutants cause acid rain.

* Stop air pollution, Stop acid rain !
