lunches to reduce daily waste. Charlotte Baker, the teacher who orchestrated Eco Week, hopes that the zero-waste picnic will have far-reaching effects on the school community.
“The eco-committee will use this event as a springboard to move towards a more sustainable canteen and try to have more zero-waste lunches and events,” said Baker.
By creating an enjoyable environment such as this, TISPC believes that learning does not only happen in the classroom but also in various range of activities.
The Big Idea competition encourages students to form opinions, critical thinking for problem solving for the environment. Most students chipped in with their ideas for eco-awareness through creative video, art or film presentations.
The success of Eco Week is a testament to how people can actually make a difference in climate change by working together collectively. While TISPC continues this effort within the school environment, Baker believes that parents should also play a role at home.
“Eco-friendliness must become a way of life and in order to be inspired, students should receive the same message at home and school,” said Baker. She also hopes to work with parents who are passionate about delivering a change.
