JAKARTA. An earth care campaign “Earth Hour” is a campaign of WWF (World Wide Fund), a largest conservation organization in the world that invites individuals, communities, practitioners, businesses and governments around the world to participate in turning off lights and appliances that are not used during one hour. This activity is commemorated by the people at the night (25/03) which is a form of awareness and consistency to devote the earth, a place where we live. Percussion Team of SD Juara North Jakarta got the opportunity to participate on this commemoration at Aston Marina Ancol Jakarta Hotel.
The event started at 19:00 pm, and was opened with welcoming remarks from the General Manager of Hotel Aston Marina Jakarta, Dini M. Artha. “We fully support the Earth Hour held by WWF. Later all the guests and employees will be engaged to participate through switching off the lights for 1 hour right at 20:30 until 21:30 pm,” she said.
She also added that this campaign can preserve the energy of the earth for the sake of the survival of children and grandchildren in the future. The main objective of this campaign is to invite people to make lifestyle changes become simple and efficient.

On this occasion the percussion team of SD Juara North Jakarta brought five songs; Yamko Rambe Yamko, Apuse, Tough, SD Juara and Aku Anak Juara. The expertise of the children in playing percussion instruments that made of second-hand goods is certainly not without the guidance of Mr. Lukito as a coach who patiently train the children.
