It is against the law to throw rubbish in fields, but some people do not listen.You can never enjoy nature without seeing some trash laying around.I think the government should handle this solution by appointing people [for example wardens] to check these places out and give the people who threw trash a fine.They also could put some recycling bins next to the field.I would really like to see the government do a big effort about this situation and maybe we can finally enjoy nature without any trash.

  The title itself explains itself on the importance to be responsible and sustainable on the food that we consume as it is indeed precious! The school’s EkoSkola Committee are taking part in the WasteServ School-Community Link Project – Promoting a Zero Waste Society in which through this and two other video in collaboration with the Video Production House Striped Sox, we are promoting the reduction of food waste and how to avoid it. This by creating awareness and also, giving tips and solutions on this. The EkoSkola team are also working on the We Eat Responsibly Project with this same theme of food waste which is being tackled via the production of a recipe booklet Sustainable Cooking including tips and ideas to preserve food and avoid wasting it as well as recipes of leftover food.

One of the few places in our school which hasn’t yet been utilised, is the roof on top of the science lab. This will not be for long though, since a Roof Garden is being constructed. PARKS organisation has donated four different kinds of seeds to our school, namely, cypress, oak, pine and Guda’s tree seeds. These have sown by the Eco Skola members in each primary classroom and by the Form 1 and Form 2 girls in the Secondary. Eventually, when the seeds grow into plants, they will be transferred to the Roof Garden.

Nature’s beauty catches one’s eyes amongst the rubbish left in the country. If these flowers could speak for sure they would give us a lesson to be more conscious of keeping the environment clean. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
