Out of all the international days celebrated at Telfair International Primary School, the Environmental Day 2011 was definitely a positive learning experience. We celebrated this international event on the 15th, 16th and 21st of June.
On the 15th of June, each child at our school brought a plant in order to not only embellish the school, but also to contribute to reducing pollution on our planet … Indeed, our school is going “Green!”
On the 16th of June, children participated in a creative writing session, where each child was to write about what he/she knew on the topic of “Pollution”. I should say, we discovered quite a few writers!
Finally on the 21st June, our children went to La Chaumiere Compost Plant where they saw and learnt how organic waste is processed into compost which can be used as a sustainable fertiliser. In the school’s opinion, this was a healthy way to make the children realise that waste doesn’t have to be a waste !!!. Our children were very at ease with their queries and did ask a lot of relevant questions.
Of course, if you wish to know more, you can always just ask any of our Telfair kids who are now probably more knowledgeable on the matter.
