The Ecology Project in P'titCREF

African proverb says: "The world is not left to us by our parents. It is lent to us by our children".
Protecting the environment is impossible without extensive knowledge of ecology and evolution. Talking about ecology in class is a wonderful way to connect children to nature.
One of the greatest objectives for this year is to equip children with the attitudes, values, knowledge and skills necessary to secure healthier, cleaner, and better place for future generations. The school life will be changed a lot in respect to this but we are sure it is for the better.
The Ecology Project in P'titCREF will concern all our classes, teachers and students, including Languages4Kids, Les P'tits Plus, nursery classes and pre-school itself.
We start with separate garbage collection. Each classroom will be equipped with color-coded bags for paper and plastic. In turns children will take the responsibility to empty the bags into special containers which will then be taken by a garbage hauling company cleangorod.com. We hope to organize a meeting with children and representatives of the company soon to better know how this works.
We will also have a container for glass. We do not expect much glass in school containers so we encourage parents to bring it to school as well as paper to help us combat the waste in a rightful manner.
Reduce, reuse, recycle! Let's apply «The Rule of three R's» on a daily basis!
Environmental Education involves children, teachers and families working collectively towards the resolution of environmental issues.
