sky-1392241_1920

YiES is a GREEN school and promotes concepts of sustainability, respect for nature and the environment, recycling, recovery and waste reduction.

Through the projects described below students become personally involved.

Project: The 4 “R’s” Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Respect

Everything is built around the concept of reducing waste and saving energy, developing responsible behaviour in children. As a response to today’s consumer society we will have a re-use, rather than a throw away philosophy.

Project: Rainwater Harvesting for School Garden

The students will gather rainwater , discovering that rainwater harvesting is a great way to conserve water. They will also learn about the collection of rainfall data.

Project: Animals and extinction

Research, analysis and identification of reasons for extinction. We will create connections via email and video with centres of marine turtle conservation in Italy and abroad.

This allows students to really understand what they can do to become an active part of the project.
