Our kindergarten students are participating in daily measures to reduce our impact on the environment. As a class we:

  • use lamp lighting instead of the rows of flourescent lighting,
  • do our part to reduce our garbage by recyclying plastic and paper and putting food waste into the organic bin,
  • clean up our school grounds, putting the litter in the appropriate place,
  • go outside weekly for lessons that connect us with our local environment, exploring our local park.

Our goal is to have our students understand the impact that people have on the environment. We want the students to understand that they can make a difference by taking steps to improve and protect the environment and conserve our natural resources. By the end of the year we will know the lessons were successful if our students have developed an awareness and appreciation for our Earth and demonstrate it independently through their actions.
