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.
