17th June is the World Day to combat desertification and drought. Its purpose is to raise awareness of the presence of desertification and drought, highlighting methods of prevention and ways of recovery. It reminds us on the importance of SAVING WATER.
Our EkoSkola Committee prepared the following video:
Yr 6.3 students wrote letters to the Committee with suggestions on how we can save more water at school. Excellent job!! These letters will be discussed during future committee meetings to see how your suggestions can be implemented!
During the past weeks, the EkoSkola Committee has been busy working on developing our own Eco-Code.
What is an Eco-Code?
An Eco-Code is a statement that represents the school’s commitment to sustainability, depending on the main objectives of the EkoSkola Action Plan. Our main targets this year were: Waste, Water, Energy and Trees.
Although schools are closed due to the Corona Virus situation, work did not stop! Our EkoSkola Committee continued to meet regularly once a week online.
The first activity the committee had to work on was Earth Hour. Our EkoSkola Committee had planned some special activities for this day. However, since we were already not attending school, these had to be changed. Instead, activities that could be done at home were promoted among the whole school community, with the main one being a family candle-lit dinner.
Another item in the action plan which the committtee started to work on is the Waste reduction video. This is an awareness-raising video to promote waste reduction. Once finished, it will be posted on the school facebook page and website, and shared with as much members of the school community as possible.
