    “Jr. Environmental Engineers take on Zero Waste”

      

    Thanks to the collaboration and support from our Assistant Principal Mrs. Dalimonte our class got awarded a Bright Ideas grant from Jones Onslow“Jr. Environmental Engineers take on Zero Waste”

    As you know in our efforts to become a zero-waste classroom, we recycle plastic bags, plastic bottles, aluminium cans, used markers, crayons and glue sticks.

     

    RECYCLING

    With the grant, we want to consolidate a school-wide recycling program at CFIE and start a composting centre. We also bought some zero waste boxes that will help us manage the waste not only produced at the school level but also in the community.

    For this reason, from February 14th thru May 24th, we, the CFIE’s Jr. Environmental Engineers will be collecting items for TerraCycle and paying your upcycled donations forward to non-profits that promote sustainability & a clean planet! Check out the brigades we are signed up for and start saving now!

    goals

     

     

     

    STEP 3: WE SHARE  - STEP 4: WE REFLECT 

     

    Students will reflect upon the fact that more people globally are expected to join the middle class over the next two decades. This is good for individual prosperity but it will increase demand for already constrained natural resources. If we don’t act to change our consumption and production patterns, we will cause irreversible damage to our environment.

    (I invite you to ask your child constantly to draw, write, talk, do little research about the above-mentioned topics or simply talk what she/he has learned at school)
